Why stay here ...

Since 1962, Damage Barton Club Site has been lovingly run by the Lethbridge family who are now experts at ensuring you have the most relaxing and enjoyable break possible. Their years of experience in running this caravan park on the site of their historic working beef and sheep farm of 600 acres means that it won't be just the panoramic sea views that take your breath away. Explore the vast network of footpaths leading from the site, right the way across the farmland and out on to the SW coastal path, with many traditional local pubs just a short walk away.

You won't want to forget your binoculars as Damage Barton gives you the opportunity to experience some stunning examples of birdlife (including nesting peregrines in season), numerous wildflowers and farm animals. During Easter there is the lambing and calving for you to enjoy. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches - Woolacombe's Blue Flag beach for sand and surf, Barricane for shell seekers, Lee for rockpooling and many smaller coves to explore.  Cyclists will enjoy the old railway line to Ilfracombe or along the Tarka Trail cycleway from Braunton to Barnstaple and beyond.

A- mazing place to stay

Damage Barton Caravan Club Site
OMG when we booked in 2020, we didnt realise the amazing place this was, on entering the site it was so stunning and the lady said to me when I booked you would need to stay longer so due to the pandemic we had to cancel and rescheduled for this year, we have just returned from a wonderful stay and what a heatwave..... we had a brilliant stay and would highly recommend this site, it is stunning, the view, the atmosphere, the food and the people are so lovely, WE WILL BE BACK!!

Damage Barton Caravan Club Site
Our second visit to this site and only wish it were closer to home so we could visit more often. The views are fabulous, with amazing sunsets if you're lucky! Yes it is an open site and I would imagine in bad weather you are quite exposed but we have been extremely lucky on both of our visits. Morthoe village is really nice, fish and chip shop, pub, tea rooms, post office selling basic supplies. There are some fabulous walks out to Morthoe point and Bull Point Lighthouse. Also a must visit is Lee Bay, very steep road down into the bay but great for rock pools and take a walk back up from the beach along the footpath to a delightful pub and beer garden. A cycle along the coast road to Woolacombe with a couple of delightful bays before the main stretch of sand, Barricane Beach was particularly good as it has a really good take away at the back of the beach, all the usual stuff you'd expect but at 5pm the menu changes to authentic Thai food, didn't hang around long enough to try it out but if the smell was anything to go by it might be worth a try on a sunny summer evening. The facilities on this site are second to none and a welcome relief from all the rules and regulations from the usual CAMC club sites at the moment (yes I know we are in the middle of a pandemic and we have to be careful and considerate not only of other members but also the staff who have to clean and maintain the facilities) but if this site can manage it I'm sure others could take a leaf out of their books. Excellent rubbish and recycling facilities, onsite shop which couldn't be more helpful, although a little expensive. Pizza and chips available on most evenings, only had the chips, which were at least real potatoes! Will always come back whenever we are this way.

Can't speak highly enough of this site

Damage Barton Caravan Club Site
This site must be the best in the whole of the country! The views are second to none. It is so very spacious. The facilities are super sparkling clean and spacious. The shop is most welcoming and well stocked. The ladies on reception are second to none with their welcome and a genuine desire to help at all times. WE WILL BE BACK SOON!!! Thank you to everyone involved in making this site so amazing.

Love this Site!

Damage Barton Caravan Club Site
I booked on the Tuesday for the following Friday for a week. Fingers crossed that we had made a good choice as a week away is pretty precious! Arrived on site. We were so not disappointed! The people running the site and I mean everyone, were warm and friendly and very helpful. After the second day of going to the campsite shop the lady already knew his name! And wow! the views! this is one of the most beautiful sites we have ever stayed on, the views were stunning. You could even see Wales on a good day. Our pitch was perfect, looking right over all the countryside, cliffs and sea. We were right next to the dog walk, which was definetly the best dog walk we have found on a site before. Even a nice little area you can throw the balls for your dogs. I feel I am gushing, but to find such a beautiful site was so good. You have the professionalism and cleanliness of a CAMC without all the rules and regulations and someone mowing the grass around you 24/7. We will definetly be going back to this site and to beautiful North Devon again. Thank you to everyone who made our week stay so perfect.

Beautiful Sea Views

Damage Barton Caravan Club Site
This site is very open and exposed with little in the way of trees or hedging. However it has great views on a clear day of the sea. We walked across the fields to Mortehoe and to Woolacombe and caught the bus back, which stops at the site entrance. Very useful! We had gluten free pizza and chips from the shop which we pre-ordered - great to have the gluten free option. Very friendly lady in the shop and it was well organised for social distancing. Our pitch was spacious and fairly level. However we were on the edge of the CC site and hadn't appreciated before we arrived that the site also has a large area for the Camping and Caravan Club adjoining it. The CC site has 45 pitches but the site is much larger than that implies. There are 2 facilities blocks which were clean, but we weren't really clear if we were only meant to use one of them (one was in the other area). We enjoyed our visit here very much.
