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 place to stay at for the disabled.

If your disabled this site is a great place to stay. The toilet/shower facilities are excellent. The one thing to be careful of is the hilly landscape. It's the nature of North Devon that the general aspect is very hilly. Also be careful of using Sat Nav as some of the short cuts are very narrow/tight. In general try to stay to the major roads. There is loads to see and do with most having great disabled access.

Willingcott 2019

Willingcott remains a fantastic seaside holiday destination with the amazing Woolacombe beach so near by. The site is beautifully kept, very clean, modern toilet facilities and, most important of all, very helpful, friendly and efficient wardens. One of our party needed to use the disabled facilities this year, they too are five star. We are already booked for next year!!

Wonderful

This was our first caravan holiday: 2 adults & 2 tiny children, so I have nothing to compare it to yet. However, it really was a fantastic view days. The staff were friendly & helpful, the facilities immaculate & the views were lovely. There was a fish & chip van one eve which was extortionate, but I imagine that’s not unusual with a captive audience. A quick drive to the beach for some lovely days out.

Wet but great

We stayed for 7 nights when the storms hit the country in June. The last time we visited this site was 1984! The pitches are large and well spaced with a nice light airy feel to the site . Loo block very modern and kept very clean. There is not a dog walk on site, you wander through pitches to the footpath/cycleway outside the site. This is not ideal. The Wardens are very friendly and gave us a nice warm welcome. Just a note of caution do not arrive before 12 as the lane to the site is narrow( we arrived after 13.00 in case you wondered) as you might meet somebody departing. The footpath/cycleway takes you all the way into Ilfracombe if you feel fit along the former Railway line.

It was ok

Stayed here in our Motorhome in May .Disappointed as there was no wifi available ,which you expect on a site like this.Also,there was no real control of children that were using the roadways in the site as a cycle track or skate board circuit.The large shower and toilet block were kept clean an tidy .There was a walk along the old railway line to a local pub.The site was busy when we were there so the pitches felt cramped.Some people were saving pitches until their friends/family arrived so limiting your choice of pitch.Overall,the site needs better policing .Wouldn't stay here again.
