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.

9 great nights

Lovely site. Friendly and helpful wardens. Great dog walking field where your dog can run off the lead. We were on pitch 64 close to dog field and water and waste facilities. All the pitches have a slight slope, but not steep. It was good to be on grass, so much easier to peg our the awning. Sadly we were not able to get WIFI at our location but no matter. We did hear some dog barking from across the valley but not enough to be an annoyance. There is a nice pub down I the village with good food. We would be happy to visit again in the future.

A Wonderful Week at Ilfracombe

If you like your sites to have lots of grey gravel pitches and a toilet /shower block, you probably wouldn't consider this site, but you will be missing out by not trying a stay on a wonderful little site. The site is open and spacious with some lovely views.it is split into two fields, the grass pitches are well spaced and as the site wasn't full we had lots of room. Some of the pitches slope, but others are level. There is a large field for dog walking and another one used as a play area for ball games, although there isn't any play equipment. The village is a 10 minute stroll away with a community shop and pub, the walk back is uphill so may take a bit longer.😉 There is lots to see and do in the area, we liked Mortehoe and the coastal village of Lee was lovely.Ilfracombe is worth a visit, if only to see Damien Hurst 's "Verity" statue. Ilfracombe has a Tesco and a Lidl for shopping, but venture into the High Street and you will find a couple of butchers and a nice bakery.Exmoor is also within easy reach for a day trip. Motor Homers may find the site a little remote as there is only one bus which goes to Barnstaple. I would like to say a big thankyou to the wardens who were very welcoming and friendly, and when I rang to see if anyone had found a set of keys, checked our pitch, found them and said they would post them back.☺ Dog owners planning to visit the area are advised to check their dog for ticks after any walks, especially along the coastal path. We loved this quiet little site, and will use it again when we visit the area.

Absolute Gem of a site

This was our first stay here and it was fantastic. The wardens were helpful and able to answer any questions. The site is in a peaceful location but on the doorstep of Ilfracombe - ideal. There is no hardstanding but please do not let that put you off. Our pitch drained wonderfully after a very very wet day. A visit to Lundy is a must. Cannot wait to return.
