The view from Woolacombe Beach along the waters edge to Morte Point.

 


We stayed here for the May Spring Bank holiday week. Upon arriving we were greeted by the friendly reception staff and shown to our premier pitch by a friendly chap on a golf buggy.

The pitch was huge and we were in the bottom secluded section which proved to be a mistake (made by me) as we would have benefited from being closer to the playground as we had our 3 kids with us (10, 7+4) plus our little dog, I didn't quite realise how big the site was!

As it was a premier pitch we had our own water supply, picnic bench and stand for our own BBQ, plus 2 hookup plugs. There was plenty of room for our Vermont XLP and to park our van by the side of the tent.

The toilets / showers are like walking into a posh hotel loo, truly amazing for a campsite and their are plenty too, never having to queue even though the site was pretty full. They were also spotless and deep cleaned daily.

The site had a little shop selling all essentials but the Tesco was only a short journey away in Ilfracombe. The playground is nice for the kids and they enjoyed the mini zip wire. We fished the lake once and had a cracking afternoons fishing in the drizzle catching fish after fish on the trusty sweetcorn.

This is definitely, by far the best campsite I have visited and we will definitely return!

If only the weather could be kind!

We just had 2 nights at this site as we wanted to revisit the area before continuing South. We were given a huge, serviced, grass pitch near the 14, yes 14 acre, dog walk and woodland area. This has mown grass through it and it's ideal if you have dogs or just enjoy walking. There are seats and bins scattered around too.

The site was pretty big and the playground looked quite impressive and seemed full of kids enjoying themselves. It was quite foggy when we visited but we went to Ilfracombe, Mortehoe and on to Lynton where the railway takes you down to Lynmouth.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the loos were great. If I have a nit to pick I would say that there could have been a bit more flora to pretty it up a bit but there was a delightful herb garden next to reception which was a great addition. This was almost the dearest site we have stayed at but it was good for us and we would return if in the area.
