Why stay here ...

Ilfracombe Club Site can be found in an elevated position, three miles inland from Ilfracombe and the North Devon coast. This site has superb scenic views of the north and west coasts as well as inland landscapes towards Dartmoor. It is ideally placed for you to enjoy the soft, sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Croyde or the dramatic coastline. Exmoor with over 600 miles of bridleways and footpaths is convenient for walkers and is regularly punctuated with historic sites. Ilfracombe Club Site is also perfectly situated to enjoy boat trips across to Lundy Island.

Small, intimate villages within the near vicinity, each with their own charming churches, will offer you the opportunity to appreciate the local history and the heather rich moorland will inspire you with its tranquillity and beauty. A short walk from the site will allow you to feel as though you have stepped backwards into a previous era - a simpler and gentler world of shy red deer and varied birdlife, splendid coastlines and literary history. Ilfracombe Club Site, with its many facilities and peaceful location, makes for a perfect base to take time out from the bustle of daily life.

Please note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Peaceful but slightly remote

A pleasant "no facilities" site with a greater sense of space than many club sites. It is, however, somewhat distant from an infrequent public transport system apart from a once a day bus that stops outside the site. The narrow lanes with high hedges do not lend themselves to safe walking although traffic is relatively light. Cycling is OK if you have the "king of the mountains" physique. Neither I nor my wife do and I narrowly avoided divorce proceedings! Realistically, families will need to get in the car to go anywhere. The wardens, new to the site this year, have familiarised themselves with the area to enable them to provide local knowledge.

Another lovely stay.

This is one of the best sites. Wardens very welcoming comes naturally. Site kept immaculately. How many wardens walk around the site as a couple and talk to people as these do. Nothing is too much trouble. I think they should train wardens as they have so many natural qualities. I agree Caravan club need to hold onto wardens like this. When you leave they wish you a safe journey. We look forward to next years caravaning at this site.

Fantastic short stay

We stayed here for only two nights at the end of a longer tour but loved the site and wished we could have stayed longer! The wardens are super friendly and super helpful, recommending the perfect pitch for our van. The location is great and the views are awesome. There are no shower blocks but don't let this put you off. There is a great dog walking field, but if your hound is partial to chasing rabbits keep him / her on a lead! If you fancy a meal out there is a pub in the hamlet just down the road which serves quite nice pub food at reasonable prices. We thoroughly recommend this site

So pleased we decided to renew our seasonal pitch

After our caravan was broken into last season, we were a bit anxious about renewing our seasonal pitch this year. But we are so pleased we did. We love this site, the location, it is immaculate, is peaceful and what can we say about the wardens. Eric & Sharon are truly outstanding and all Wardens should be like this. Friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. They keep the site immaculate and we hope that we are lucky enough to be able to season our caravan for 2019/2020. Message to the Caravan Club - Do not let these Wardens go. It will be your loss !!!!

excellent first time site for us, wardens so helpful and really enjoyed being there

Were new to this caravanning and motorhome lark. and booked this site through the club for initially a day as a stopover as we thought we would do some responsible wild camping as well, however we were so well received and the site so rural and clean and great location with a great price we just stayed ..if this is the sort of site we can expect in the future wish I had bought a motorhome years ago!!!! Well done to the wardens..
