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.

Great weekend

Had a lovely welcome when we arrived, everything fully explained . Site looking a picture, even with the recent weather. Walked into Ilfracombe on Saturday, just over 4.5 miles , easy walking on old railway/ cycle track. Also had some great sunset looking out to sea. Will be back soon . P & C

Nice stay

Nice site. Stayed at end of September. Very peaceful. Clean. COVID sensible. If you are a pitch up and stay camper you won't be disappointed. But we found that the local area, especially Woolacombe, has become very commercialised compared to our children hood memories. In fact I would go as far as to so in peak summer, it would be our living hell!

Dissapointed

We have stayed on this site before and enjoyed our stay,sorry to say this time was a big let down , mainly because of the attitude of the wardens who were most unhelpful. when we arrived it was raining ,and we were told we had to have a very soggy grass pitch as you have guessed it motor homes take priority which is wrong we all pay the same membership charge and pitch fees. What happened to first come first served. The grass pitch we were allocated was vey wet and very uneven . we were given no choice being told our 1500kg caravan weight did not warrent a hard standing pitch ,funny then when we had pitched up a hard standing that was free when we arrived was allocated to a similar weight caravan . We have stayed at this site before and never had a problem . This year while I accept covid 19 has caused many problem there is no excuse for not cutting the grass and making the grass pitches a far better condition . Other years the site has been well kept and tidy and the flower beds tidy not so this year. I have nothing against motor homes everyone to their own ,but with the increase of motor homes the cc should be providing more hard standings. This is a nice site good toilet block and washing facilities and we will be back .I am obviously not the only member to voiced concerns over the state of grass pitches, so please get the wardens to cut the grass to a suitable length .

Disappointed

Just joined the caravan club having been caravanning for over 30 years and normally use CCC sites and private sites. The site is in a good location to visit local beaches and surrounding area and we got a hard standing pitch that was large and level with a nice view of the Devon hills. Did not use toilet/shower facilities so can’t comment. Unfortunately the appearance of this site is of an out dated forgotten place. Unkept grass dividers/edges to the fields, flower bed, signs, and particular the long grass everywhere. On arrival our grass on our pitch was about two weeks growth long and I asked the site warden on the Sunday if it could be cut and he said maybe Monday maybe Tuesday I don’t know. During the week other areas around us were cut but our pitch wasn’t and still wasn’t 6 days later. There is no dog walk on this site and the area you cross to get to it has very long grass and then the disused railway track you go onto off the site is totally overgrown and has speeding cyclists on it so beware, the dog bin wa over flowing which myhusband told them about to get it emptied as needs emptying daily. There are no lights by the gate to this lane so at night it’s pitch dark and can’t be used to take your dogs there. I won’t be using this site again and as our first experience of the caravan and motorhome club I was disappointed. I think the club needs to get back to basics with good pitches with short grass up to date electrical bollards, update to first class toilet facilities and maybe a bit of customer care at reception.

Looking a bit tired

Just returned from a week here. Glorious weather and as usual friendly wardens and good clean facilities. However, I agree with several reviewers. regarding the general appearance of the site. Unless your'e lucky enough to bag a hard-standing pitch, the grass one's are badly in need of cutting. Grass pitches were the only ones available when we arrived. Previously the weather may have been wet but during the week we were there it was certainly dry enough to cut. Grass around the caravans that appeared to be seasonal pitches was over a foot high. We did see the warden on the mower once but even when he'd passed it was difficult to see where the grass had been cut. Flower beds that had been planted out around the site at the beginning of the season were overgrown with weeds and the whole site looked neglected. A sharp contrast to the private site across the road which looked immaculate (like pitching on someone's lawn) maybe staff numbers are an issue, I don't know but overall - I don't think I would return and would look at other options in the area.
