Woolacombe beach in May

 

Much has been spoken about Woolacombe beach for and sometimes high expectations can lead to disappointment. But not on with this instance. A walk down from the campsite, through Mortehoe and then along this wonderful beach, at any time of the year - it is both stunning and beautiful. You can see why Woolacombe Beach was voted the Best Beach in the UK and fourth in Best Beach in Europe by Tripadvisor visitors.

It is such a vast open space at low tide and it is lovely to be able to walk the dog along the whole beach out of season.

 


Fantastic as always.

We have just returned from our annual trip to Warcombe where all the staff were friendly and helpful as always. Facilities are kept clean and tidy all the time and even when busy. The food vans which visit site are a great alternative to cooking. We will be back later this year and for many more years.

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footpaths down to the coast, fully planted with new trees - the previous report regarding 'losing your dog' is now out of date.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!.
