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.

2nd visit in eight years

This was our second visit to this camp the last being in 2011and not a lot has changed still a brilliant well managed site. One thing that had changed was the shop operator. Last time it was a father and son set up and they made lovely pizzas to order. The shop is now run by a husband and wife set up with the husband doing the meals and his wife runs the shop. There is now a different specialty each night and very good they were the nights we indulged

Wonderful!

What a wonderful holiday we both had. The staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities are very clean and modern. There is a shop on site, who do lovely food and caters for most of your needs. There is plenty of walking to do from site, as long as you are aware of the hills. (local maps available from the shop,very handy!) Mortehoe and Lee are a must, both have pubs with good food. This is a site we recommend and definitely we will be returning to.

Arrived 4pm, had a booking, they sent us away

Reason: We have more than 2 dogs. Greyhounds. It is nowhere written that only 2 dogs are allowed. Neither in the club book nor on the Internet. They said: It is not possible that more dogs than people are on the campsite. Thanks, after 4 hours of driving this is what we wanted to hear. Btw. We've been touring Europe and the UK for 10 months now - Damage Barton was the only campsite that sent us away.

Brilliant Site

We had a great week staying on this really beautiful site March 30th 2019 with sea views from all of the pitches. The pitches are really big with also a good piece of grass between the neighbours which is hard to find on some sites. Facilities were very modern and spotless. There are 2 facility blocks, one at the top site and 1 at the bottom site. Not too far away from the pitches in our opinion. Great for walking, especially the walk to Lee village and a great circular walk(7 miles) from the site along the coastal path and great for cycling to Ilfracombe and Woolacombe (also within walking distance). Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and highly recommended.
