The shops and pubs of Mortehoe

The shops and pubs of Mortehoe

 

The small village of Mortehoe, just a short walk downhill from the campsite, is a pretty stone built village mentioned in the Domesday Book.

The village offers several shops, tea rooms and three pubs, a quaint church and the Mortehoe Heritage Centre, beside the car park, which showcases the area's rich maritime history.

Mortehoe is also the ideal starting point for many of the scenic walks around our dramatic stretch of the North Devon coastline. Te village of Mortehoe is just inland from Morte Point itself.

 


Love this campsite! :)

This was our first visit and were late booking for the bank holiday weekend, which meant they were fully booked, but they were amazing to contact us to let us know they had a cancellation (yay for us!)

Well I have to say this is the most organised and best campsite we have ever visited! We aren't into big campsites and like a bit of piece and quiet so it was perfect for us. We were lucky enough to have a pitch with a sea view and the pitch size was ample for us, they are really good and discuss what pitch size is best for you as they have all different shapes and sizes.

The facilities, toilets and washing blocks were fabulous! So clean and with heated floors feel very luxurious, I actually looked forward to a camp site shower!!

They accommodate dogs really well and the woodland field is such an added bonus. They even give your dog a little goodie bag on arrival :)

We had fresh croissants (get there early!) from the on site shop for breakfast and hired a wooden bench which they brought over to our tent straight away.

Looking forward to booking our next trip :) :)

An excellent site!. All previous reviews about new shower / toilet block are spot on!. The wardens went about their routine business and didn't seem to bother anyone, but, were extremely helpful if approached!.

The dog walking area is immense! and leads onto some very nice public footpaths down to the coast, fully planted with new trees - the previous report regarding 'losing your dog' is now out of date. Usual problems exist with this field however, namely that some dog owners do not, or will not, 'clear up'.

The only downside of the week for us was that although the site has an area for late caravan arrivals, we found a family pitching a tent directly opposite us at 11. 30pm onwards!, headlights on, doors slamming, kids running amok etc, etc. with little regard for anybody else. All in all though, an excellent site.

Local facilities though are not so good - you often have to stand in a queue to get a beer in the nearest pub and the fish and chip shop in Mortehoe is nothing short of a disorganised rip off!.
