Mostly level, good mix of hookup and standard. Sizes were good (we have a Vango 800 DLX) and well marked. Some pitches amongst small trees and bushes but there is competition for these!
Friendly, helpful and always around doing something – cleaning, mowing etc etc.
A small fishing lake sits in the middle of the site and was popular with anglers.
Absolutely the best hot showers I have ever come across. Very, very good washing, toilet, and washing up facilities.
The shop is on the small side and can quickly run out of essentials like bacon and eggs so go prepared.
The café looked ok but we didn’t use it.
Good, new and well maintained play area, laid with bark, fenced and situated in the middle of the site. Walks are excellent so there is loads of space to run. This site is obviously popular with families and so there is no shortage of playmates.
This is the best site that I have stayed on in the UK. It’s situated in some beautiful countryside with great access to a lot of places. Walks from the site are good – one especially takes you down through fantastic woods to a small rocky beach with nice hotel and restaurant.
We were there with our 2 boys (3&6) and we would very definitely go back. There is no pool, no club etc etc and it is all the better for it. Book early – it was full when we arrived.
On the whole this is top of my SouthWest UK camp site list at the moment.
A well kept, well run, clean friendly site.
The staff are very very helpful and friendly. I read loads of reviews about the toilet block and I can back those reviews up it's great warm and clean with plenty of hot water. The shower cubicles are not match boxes either, a good size with shelves to keep your clothes dry .. a real credit to the owners.
We use an American 30ft Motorhome and there was loads of room on the fully serviced pitch we were allocated, lots of room to move the motorhome about for perfect position overlooking the lake. The lady on reception let me know that they might create a few more super pitches, over the winter, higher up the site which will help getting a satellite signal!
We enjoyed ourselves so much we will be back again in early July before the big summer rush! Thanks to the owners for providing such a wonderful facility... highly recommended.
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!.
Great for children
Very nice camp site. The excellent facilities can be a few minutes walk depending on where you pitch as it is a large site, but you can always drive there if you are totally bone idle.
The site staff are very friendly and helpful. It is quite exposed to wind being on the coast line but there are plenty of sheltered pitches for tents, many with service hook ups if required.
Great for children with an excellent play area and lovely fishing / duck pool in the middle of the site all set in beautiful country side.
A major plus point is that there is no club house to ruin the peaceful surroundings.
Would thoroughly recommend this site as a base to explore North Devon. I doubt you will find a better all round site than this.
I visit this site so much as it really is a fantastic site, being only a very short journey to Woolacombe beach it is a site that is fantastic for the whole family, The park is very clean and tidy and has great views of Wales on a clear day.
If you are into walking then this site is great for you as I have found direct routes onto the south-west coast path. I have been there about 15 times in the last year and love it so much.
It has a fantastic new shower block with underfloor heating with free to use showers and also a great restaurant with fantastic meals to offer. This site is perfect and also has a fantastic fishing lake with rod hire available at amazing prices.
The owners, Martin and Christine are great and really do their best for all visitors. Go to Warcombe Farm and see for your self.
Good Pitch Sizes
We have just returned from our first camping trip with the children, what a great start.
Lovely site, it was clean and tidy, good pitch sizes, superb shower and toilet facilities, friendly staff and nice play area for the children.
The takeaway was excellent if a little slow, the prices were pretty reasonable too.
We would definitely return.
Superb spot for Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and Croyde.
Just had our first family camping trip here and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The shower block was fabulous - so warm, clean and tidy. A far cry from my Guide camp days!
Playground was great for the children although the aerial slide was a little noisy when being used after hours.
Superb spot for Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and Croyde.

This site was fabulous. Beautiful setting, loads of space, fantastic shower/toilet block. I am not a seasoned camper but I give this long weekend camping experience 10/10. Highly recommend a visit.
The kids really enjoyed the playground and the fishing lake has lots of big fish. The staff were very friendly and you don't have to worry about cooking because they provide a take away service. The food was simple, home-made and very tasty.
This was a perfect site for me. Not too large and over crowded and in a perfect location for getting to the surf on Woolacombe Beach.
The site is very well maintained while managing to keep the rural feel. The shower and toilet block are in a league of there own and can only be described as luxurious. There is a combination of pitches from open plan to secluded plots surrounded by trees and shrubs for complete privacy if required.
At the end of the site they have their own woodland which makes for a great walk and has fantastic views out to sea.
The staff were very friendly and the food at their small take away was very welcoming after the journey down.
In my opinion it would be hard to find a better site than this for what we look for and for that it has gone to number 1 in my book.
Third visit here and it still impresses me each time.
Avoid the route via Barnstaple to get there - traffic always bad but other A roads fine.
A very convenient site for the local surfing beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe (especially if you want to avoid the big holiday parks) and easy to get to others at Saunton and Ilfracombe too.
Site is spotless with fantastic showers/toilets/plate washing and useful clothes drying area.
So peaceful in the evenings with lovely views - and the pitches for non EHU especially are beautifully landscaped.
This time we found a lovely little cinema in Ilfracombe on a showery evening which was handy.
This is the only site I recommend to all my friends and you can check availability, see the pitches on a map and book online for a spur of the moment trip. Love the place!
Great time camping
This was our second trip to this site and had a great time.
They have added more play facilities for children which was very popular. To remain the best site in the area they need to keep improving.
You can hire all fishing equipment to use their fishing lake at a reasonable price and the takeaway food was good.
We stayed at Warcombe Farm last week and although the weather was not very good, the campsite itself was a delight. The shower block is out of this world, the campsite it spotlessly clean and kept that way all week. Noisy campers are not tolerated by management. We will most certainly go back again.
Bank Holiday Camping
We visited Warcombe Farm during the August bank holiday weekend. 4 adults and 2 children (5 and 2.5) spread over two large pitches (10.5m x 11.5m) with EHU. This easily accommodated our Diablo 600 and car
The site itself is slightly sloping at the top but seems to level out towards the bottom. The children's play area is well maintained was very popular with the children. There is ample grass area to run around in.
The toilet block is excellent and the showers are large with a storage system to stop your clothes getting wet.
The shop is small and a bit expensive but there is a Spar about 0.5 miles towards Woolacombe and a Tesco in Ilfracombe.
The on-site take-away sell very good home cooked food, not just the usual fried thing and chips, and I would strongly recommend it. There is a pub at the end of the lane which provides a carvery as well as bar food. You can walk to it but you will need to walk down the road as there is no pavement. The walk takes approx 10 minutes.
There is a fishing lake which seemed quite popular although not my sort of thing.
Woolacombe beach is a 5 minute car journey away. Miles and miles of sand, great surf and a stream which kept our kids happy for hours. All day parking is £4 or £5 depending on how close to the beach.
If we visit this area again I would definitely consider staying there again.
This is a great site! This was our first camping trip as a family although we camped as children. We both think that this site may have spoilt us as we will probably now compare all other sites to this one.
The Toilets and Showers were out of this world and better than some Hotels I’ve stayed in. The site is well maintained and the planting on the site gave a lot of privacy.
The Children’s Play Area was brilliant for my 5 Year old. A lot of campers had Dogs and this looked like a great place for Dogs as they had the big field at the back for walks etc.
The Washing up facilities and Food Preparation area were great and I noticed they had loads of washing machines and tumble dryers there if you needed them. My husband took my son into the family room for a shower and said that it had a lovely bath, shower and toilet in one room which was great for smaller children. I previously used one of the disabled showers in the Ladies as it was 6. 30am and no one was around with my Son and that was very spacious. There was also another separate room for disabled by the family room.
The ‘on-line’ internet booking was really good. The only criticism is that they were still letting people pitch at nearly 11pm on the Friday night (it was May Day Bank Holiday weekend!) They say in their brochure that they wont let people pitch after 10pm. This kept us awake for a while, but didn’t spoil our holiday and I’m already planning another trip there next month.
There was a very nice pub with good food which you pass to get to the camp. The Beach was only a few minutes drive away which was great for my 5 year old.
