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.

Recent stay

We have stayed for four nights over the bank holiday. Stayed many times and love it here. This year there are lovely new wardens and had a friendly greeting and checked we were ok the next morning. They keep the site immaculately and you see them around. Site handy for touring around Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, Barnstaple, Lyndon and Lynmouth. Nice just sitting outside your caravan. We will be back.

One of our favourite sites

Have just returned from a 7 day stay at this wonderful site.We have been staying here on a regular basis for more years than i care to mention but i never tire of it's beautiful setting.From the top of the site you have expansive sea views and from the bottom of the site rolling Devon countryside. This year the new wardens are very welcoming,friendly and extremely hard working. The grass is in great condition and from the bottom of the site services it looks like a premier football club pitch. For dog owners the site has a large field where your best friend can roam,run or play to it heart's content. All this and for only £14 a night.

We just can't keep away!

We love this site and have been very regular visitors for more than 20 years. Everyone is so friendly and, like us, most people are regulars. We like to use the seasonal storage facility, which works brilliantly for us. This year, we arrived on site just ahead of the snow, only to wake up the following morning to a winter wonder land. The wardens, Eric and Sharon, were amazing, so helpful and, in spite of the Arctic conditions, worked tirelessly and with good humour. Eric checked on us every day whilst we were 'snowed in' to make sure that we were ok. Truly beyond the call of duty. The only trouble we have is tearing ourselves away, we just never want to leave. One thing.... Please, please, please can you repair the steps and reinstate the woodland walk down to the little brook, because it is so, so magical and we miss our walks into 'Dingley Dell' or the 'Fairy Glen' as our grandchildren used to call it, a little piece of peace on earth now missing.

Fantastic site

The wardens work hard. The grass and flowers are lovely. A gated dog walk area with bin is great for our dog. The site is near to Woolacomb beach which is dog friendly. The only noise is some barking dogs in a neighbouring field occasionally while we were there.

Dogs

Third visit here and the facilities are always clean and tidy and well kept by the wardens. We probably won't stay again because each time we do we hoped that the smallholding about quarter of a mile down the road would have done something to keep their dogs from continuous barking, not the dogs fault because they are left alone most of the time and are probably bored. I could easily pick out at least half a dozen, one of which has a high pitched yelp, needless to say dogs barking is one of my pet hates, excuse the pun!. It's a pity because everything we want is in the direct area so it seems Willingcott or Damage Barton will now be our choice. My comments are not in any way a criticism of the site or in the way it is run, just a personal observation, rant over, cheers.
