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.

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.
