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.

Lovely Site good location. Facilities are modern spacious and very clean ( the best facilities we have had all holiday). Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Excellent location drove the motorhome to Ilfracombe and Barnstable both have car parks that cater for motorhome and access was easy. Lovely end to our holiday would visit this site again and highly recommend.

Geocaching Trip

Willingcott Caravan Club Site
Stayed a few days on this nice quiet site right next to the Tarka Trail. This well surfaced bike friendly path took us to the top of Ilfracombe not into it I might add as we looked at the Big slope down into the town and even with electric bikes turned around. All not lost as we stayed on this site to go Geocaching and the hides along the trail were fantastic , well wort doing and managed to get all we looked for that day. Some other rides did mean we went up some hills that we are sure was too tough for the Tour de France...Vive la Electricity... Friendly wardens and so were the other campers on site.

Credit to the wardens

Willingcott Caravan Club Site
We stayed early September & rate this site 100% for cleanliness, it's a peaceful well run site & a credit to the wardens, it's by far one of the best sites we've stayed at, it was full during our stay but the toilets & showers were always spotlessly clean & available, other members have commented on the narrow roads but hey this is Devon, we had no difficulty towing our 8mtr + Buccaneer to & from the site. The only down side we had & this was nothing to do with the C&M site was the expensive parking in Woolacombe it's geared up for surfing etc & £8 per day was an absolute rip off so we just avoided the resort, the views however are breath taking.

Lovely site

Willingcott Caravan Club Site
I stayed with my husband and dog here last week. The toilet and shower cubicles were clean, the showers were very warm and stayed on, unlike some where you need to keep pressing the button to have more water. The week we stayed there was gardening maintenance, the gardener was very friendly and clearly liked dogs. We had a lovely pitch, which is shown on the club site photo, overlooking the fields, close to the toilet and shower block. The site is on a slight hill which gives children the opportunity to go down the hill the wrong on the one way system very fast, we saw a few children come off their bikes and scooters and a lot of near misses with oncoming cars. There a dog pit stop area which is small so I walked my dog along the very quiet pathway that goes into Ilfracombe. The biggest issue we had was the roads going to Croyde and Putsborough beach, very narrow one lane roads with hardly any passing areas, we did attempt to go to Putsborough but the road was very busy with a lot of stalemate with the cars, so we spent our days at beautiful Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Hele beach, there are a lot of rock pools at Ilfracombe beach, be careful with dogs that haven't got the greatest recall! We decided to come home two days early as our main reason we booked here was for Putsborough beach, I left a message on the office answer phone telling them we were leaving, within five minutes they contacted us and said we would get a one day refund as we were leaving early. Lovely site but will not be back due to the almost impossible roads around the site.

Disappointed

Willingcott Caravan Club Site
Out of all the club sites we have visited our first visit to Willingcott was somewhat disappointing. The whole site looked "tied" & unkempt. The grass & hedgerows had not been cut for quite a while, & the weeds were well established in the hardstanding areas. It desperately needs some TLC, which means spending some money on improvements. A walkway along the hedgerows would vastly improve access to the only toilet block, if we maintained the etiquette of not walking across pitches 10k steps would easily be achieved walking the winding roadways. Also less grass & muck would be left on the toilet & shower floors.
