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.

Good site

Just spent a week in October at this site our third visit to this site over the years. Nice big pitches with good space between. Facility block excellent & kept very clean. Easy access out of rear gate onto cycle route / path. From this path you can cycle or walk to Ilfracombe (approx 5 Miles) - mainly downhill to Ilfracombe so remember it’s an uphill start on return journey. Ilfracombe is rather hilly & has three supermarkets for supplies. Woolacombe is lovely with its beach & you can walk down to it from site (we did not walk this time as had a lot of rain & paths across fields looked a bit boggy). Nice cycle ride on road down to Mortehoe & then on track out to Ball Point lighthouse. Just keep in mind the site is not close to the beach so those who don’t walk distances or cycle will have to take the car or bus (bus stop near end of cycle path at rear of site by bend in road / pub).

Long way to the beach!

After a horrendous journey we arrived and quarter to six. The shop was closed but the female warden appeared as I was getting out of the car and shouted across to me ‘name.?!’ As I got in the shop I was given the bill and a temporary key to the dog gate and told to go back early in the morning with the pitch number. Not a smile or ‘hello’ we were made to feel an inconvenience. I went back in the morning and I was asked my pitch number and that was it, so I still felt a bit unwelcome. (Perhaps it was an off day). Later in the week a caravan pitched next to us at 8.30 in the evening. There are no barriers at the main gate, and as there is no dog walk so you need a key to unlock and lock the gate to take a dog into the lane. The shower block lovely and clean, and could be such a peaceful site if it wasn’t for the sit on motor mower which is out every day, even on Sunday.The site is further to the beach than we thought and too far for children to walk. One evening we drove to ‘Marine Drive’ it was free to park after five and we had a lovely walk down and across the dunes with the dog to the beautiful beach.

A lovely site in a fabulous location

This is a lovely peaceful site to visit out of season - although I can imagine it would be very different in the middle of summer as it's perfectly located for a family beach holiday. The facilities are very modern, well maintained and kept spotlessly clean. The site is also beautifully maintained and the wardens all very helpful and friendly. There's plenty of walking from the site, either along the cycle track for an easy walk to Ilfracombe or along the many paths down to the nearby coast path. We will definitely return to this site.

Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time at Willingcott. The wardens were friendly and helpful. They work really hard to keep the place clean and tidy. The facilities were excellent. Exceptionally clean and hot showers! Washing up area, washing machines and dryers if needed. A nice walk/cycle oath into Ilfracombe. Overall we enjoyed our Summer holiday in North Devon. Highly recommended.
