“Brilliant campsite”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

There is nothing they don't have and can't accommodate - even a bath! Great campsite for everyone and especially if you have children or a dog or both. Clean everything, well fed fish on spam and sweetcorn, takeaways on site with different themes, 14 acres for the dogs and loads of room for the kids to play. Super shop and morning orders of fresh bread and croissants - fabulous stay, we extended twice!! Great views of Wales too.

Room Tip: At the bottom of the site is the quieter (but it is NOT noisey at all) bit in the trees - lovely.

Warcombe is large but friendly campsite, has all the amenities you would require. A say a large campsite because it is but it doesn't feel that way if your down the bottom end in the secluded pitches we had a very private pitch which was a walk to the toilets but worth it. Toilets and showers are very clean and never had to wait for a shower. The woodland walk was excellent for the dogs great to able to let them off the lead and have a good run round We also walked into Woolacombe one evening not far to walk little steep in places but ok.
All the staff on site very friendly and had a great recommendation for food.
We will be returning thank you Warcombe for a great weekend.

We have just come back from a 11 night stay at this wonderful campsite. After returning here for about the 7th year running, it still didn't let us down !! Staff are all really friendly and will help in any way. Agree with other reviews that it is less windy the further you pitch down the site. We had some lovely weather but also 2 days of torrential rain and the improvements to the drainage system seemed to have done the trick. We love this site as it is quiet and peaceful in the evening, so if you are looking for a rowdy get together into the late evening, this is not the site for you. ps. we didn't mind the guitar playing doughnut lol. Lovely clean showers etc in the main toilet block, though we found the family changing rooms a bit smelly(maybe young children missing the loo)
Will definitely be returning again next year

Thank you very much for taking the time to submit a lovely review of the site, and also thank you for being such loyal customers. We always take on board any feedback that we receive. As you know we are always constantly cleaning the facilities and check on the cleanliness throughout the day I can only pressume that the smell that you are referring to was coming from the drains. Sometimes in peak season this has happened ( depending on the wind direction) because the septic drainage tanks are suddenly experiencing a huge surge in activity after a quiet start to the season. As a result of you raising this issue we are going to install air freshners. We also requested that our head grounsman check all the drains for any blockages or backup- none were found in this instance. Thank you again for taking the trouble to write a review.

The campsite as a whole is very well laid out and the facilities are very clean and plentiful. Fishing in the lake is great with the kids and you cannot fail to catch at least some tiddlers, although I did see some monsters being pulled out. Shop is stocked enough for essentials, but has the usual campsite shop mark up on prices. There are some mobile take-away shops that visit on various days of the week, and although the pizza is nice, it is basic and very expensive for what you get. The fish and chips were better value, and we did not try the 'street food' stuff so cannot comment.
We had great weather but suffered one or two days torrential rain....so much so that there were weather warnings and localised flooding but our pitch (87) did not flood at all, and was very well sheltered from the wind that comes down the hill (felt for the people at the top near the entrance). We were in a very large tent.
I was under the impression that on our pitch was a brick built barbecue, but it is not....it is just a stand for your own BBQ, maybe I read it wrong?
Staff are all very friendly and there was very little noise after 10, apart from some doughnut with a guitar who felt the need to entertain us all whether we wanted it or not!
This campsite is a bit pricey but you are paying for the facilities etc. but it could do with more things for the kids to do, or maybe another playground nearer the centre of the site....the only one on the site is right next to the exit and entrance gates...i.e. road.
If you come here make sure you go to Woolacombe beach, Mortehoe village (turn right out of main exit) and dine at the Chichester Arms (serve food from 6pm)..... Also try the Rockleigh in Mortehoe for their takeaway food. The Red Barn in Woolacombe is awful for the food and service with a grimace.
This site is worth your money, try it.

We love this place, the staff are friendly and will do their utmost to make your stay pleasant. We had a caravan and awing and all of the facilities where on your pitch so no need to continue breaking your back and emptying the waste and refilling the water.
The facilities are very clean and there are take away companies that visit nearly every other night if you don't want to cook.
The fishing is excellent and even for a novice we caught 20 fish, bread and spam are the way forward.
There is a play area for the children as well.
The location is great with an good choice of beaches. Ignore the weather forecast for this area, showers can pass you by very easily and it could be chucking it down 2 miles away.
Brilliant - hope to see you next year.

Room Tip: Good for a top of the range pitch if you have a caravan..

We have just come back from an enjoyable 6 days at Warcombe. The pitches are fabulous, they are spacious and well spread out. Our pitch was nice and quiet and close to the toilet facilities. Toilet facilities were very good. We were by the smaller block and there was always toilets and showers available. Shower rooms/ large wet rooms were very spacious and well thought out, with loos, sinks and paper towels too, the squeegy was a great addition. The park is great. The fishing lake was amazing, we caught 22 fish!! Will definitely be coming again. The staff were brilliant and very helpful. Would give 5 stars if the taps were free running and didn't keep turning off after 2 seconds and if the shower temp was adjustable. They were very generously warm, which is ideal for a cold day, but too hot on a hot day!!

This was a trip to baptise my wife and son in to camping and I couldn't have asked for a better campsite. Excellent facilities, great staff, very clean with no problems, very large pitches, great play area and just down the road from Woolacombe Bay. We will definately be returning.

Room Tip: The premier pitches are great.
