We are just a short drive away from the seaside town of Ilfracombe - pay a visit to Damien Hirt's statue of Verity at the end of the pier. We love it an d think it is a great asset! make up your own mind and have a lovely day out.
I've never left a review before, but feel the team at this campsite deserve one.
Despite high winds and a large number of broken poles trying to pitch, the staff (along with some fellow campers) couldn't have done any more to help us. Nothing was too much for Glyn and he applied his previous experience to try and help strengthen the broken poles and keep the tent in one piece during our stay.
Glyn was a great representation of the Warcombe team who just wanted to ensure we enjoyed our holiday which we truly did. Amazing site with so many different ventures locally which include walking, cycling or bus allowing the car to be parked up permanently.
We enjoyed it so much that for the first time ever, we have already booked to go back next year.
Our first stay at this site and will not be our last, Wonderful facilities, showers, toilets, wash basins, all clean and never had to queue even in this high season period. We had a nice pitch (145) at the bottom of the site which was more sheltered, it was the perfect size for our 8 berth khyam tent and we had a gravel area to park the car. The staff were friendly very helpful and hard working even emptying waste bins at 10:30pm!. The shop although small seemed to have everything that you need at very reasonable prices (even the wine!), we liked the fact that you could order rolls and pastries for collection in the mornings. The fishing lake is very good, my son and I had a couple of very productive afternoons catching many fish, we took our own tackle but you can hire it from the shop, bait, just a can of sweetcorn. There is a large kiddies play area at the top of the site by reception.
There are several visiting mobile food vans which visit the site throughout the week, when we arrived on Saturday after setting up we thought we would go into town for some fish and chips, as we were tired and a fish and chip van was on site on Saturdays we dubiously thought we would try it. Turns out the food was better than many established shops we have bought from! please try it!. There was also a pizza company making fresh pizzas to order but on the night we were going to try it there was heavy rain and they did not have any form of shelter so it looked a bit chaotic so we gave it a miss.
The site is easy to find and only a couple of miles from Woolacombe, parking is expensive there, the main beach car park is privately owned, it costs £7 for the whole day but if you leave before 1pm it is only £4, arriving after 4pm is £3. There is another large car park 200m up the road which charges £6 per day.
We had a very nice Sunday carvery at the Fortescue Arms which is left out of the site for about half a mile then right at the T junction. We also discovered another restaurant called Cooks Island which is on the way to Ilfracombe very reasonable good food but VERY busy booking advisable.
So to sum we really enjoyed our stay at this park and will be going back next year for two weeks.
