Why stay here ...

Willingcott Club Site is a spacious site divided into separate areas by Devon Banks. The caravan park is both quiet and peaceful out of peak season yet offers a vibrant family site at other times of the year. Glimpses of Lundy Island can be seen across the water which makes for a captivating sight.

If you are looking for an active break, the Willingcott Club Site also boasts direct access for cyclists to the National Cycle Network route 27 and North Devon Cycle Network. You can enjoy surfing at nearby Woolacombe, which is known as one of the best blue flag beaches in the country. For golfing enthusiasts, Woolacombe & Mortehoe which is 2 miles from the caravan site. The site is only a mile from Borough Farm, home to the Channel Five series 'Mist Sheepdog Tales'. This is a great day out and the whole family can enjoy the falconry and sheepdog display which stars 'Mist' the sheepdog. If you are a bird watcher, Braunton Burrow is just seven miles away and for fishing you can enjoy nearby Blakewell Fisheries and Slade Lakes. With miles of coastal footpaths for hardy walkers and dog owners, this holiday getaway offers something special for everyone.

Peaceful stay

Have been at Willingcott for the past week and are thoroughly enjoying our stay. The weather has been relatively kind to us enabling us to visit the nearby Woolacombe and Ilfracombe as well as Saunton Sands and Croyde beach. Woolacombe is quite a walk from the site and before our arrival they had experienced quite a bit of rain so the verges and grass walking down was muddy. The tarka trail runs behind the site And there is a gate to exit the site onto it. Once on the trail, the walk or cycle down to Ilfracombe is wonderful. We took our electric bikes and rode the tarmac’d path all the way. 90% of the way there is downhill which obviously means 90% is uphill coming back. Fortunately the electric took the strain. Saunton Sands is fantastic. Parking is £2.70 per 2 hrs and you can walk and walk and walk more along the golden sands which are flat stretch for mile after mile. We managed to get a pitch at the lower end of the caravan site which was less windy, as it can be very windy here, and being hard standing it meant that if it did rain we wouldn’t get muddy. Unfortunately a lot of the pitches on grass seemed to become muddy very quickly obviously owing to the previous weeks rain. The toilet block on site (just the one) is kept spotless and warm. We have experienced no Queues even though this COVID carry on continues! It is a nice site and reasonably placed for visiting nearby towns and attractions. We shall certainly return.

Summer Holiday Stay

Stayed for 1 week, had a good hard standing pitch but would of been aggrieved to have had to pitch up on the grass (very wet and overgrown). Facilities kept clean but unsure why the band system was dropped for the bank holiday weekend? Only our second caravan club site stay and enjoyed the location, with easy access to a number of excellent beach's.

Great Location

Just returned from a week at this site. The site itself is a lovely location to visit the North Devon coast. It is very clean and well maintained the site management are working hard to keep the site and facilities clean and tidy, something they do well despite the efforts of some who insist on undermining all their efforts but leaving empty alcohol bottles in toilets cubicles or generally not cleaning the facilities after make use of them. Given there are brushes provided it does make you wonder what home looks like! A major disappointment with our stay was the manner with which some totally ignored the Covid-19 restrictions. We all witnessed people, adults & children ignoring the requirements to hang a wristband on the hook often quoting, "they're using the showers, I wanted the toilet" it really does beggar belief! Having read some previous reviews I was very apprehensive. I needn't have been in regards of the site, the staff or anything in their control. The stay was only marred by the behaviour and attitude of the small minority and those teenagers, who for some reason are fascinated by hanging around a toilet block, in the evening. In short great clean site, well managed and good for dogs and families, afflicted by the same mindless individuals as anywhere else.

Had a great week.

Great location for visiting a variety of North Devon beaches and locations. Clean facilities, friendly staff and a thoroughly enjoyable week for 5 of us. Granted you may be disappointed if you can't get a hardstanding pitch but plenty of others appeared to prefer them. There are sensible measures in place to ensure good hygiene but we never had any issues getting access to facilities as a family of five. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our thanks to the staff for making it enjoyable.

Not stopped but heard enough.....

Unusual review, we are due to stop in two weeks, so haven't actually stopped yet. Like others i have been concerned to read the recent reviews for this site, we are due to camp there for 10 nights in mid August. I contacted them yesterday about my concerns with the pitch location to the toilet block and to see what they had to say regards the recent reviews. I have to say their response was great, im not concerned anymore and felt the person i spoke to genuinely cared and was interested in my issues, so huge tick. Happy camper.
