You can enjoy surfing at nearby Woolacombe, which is known as one of the best blue flag beaches in the country and glimpses of Lundy Island can be seen across the water which makes for a captivating sight. 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.

A good site for Woolacombe Bay.

Willingcott Club Campsite
I stayed here in my camper van as a single lady for 6 nights. It was pleasant. Had to move halfway through to quieter spot, but then it was fine. Staff were lovely. I also enjoyed the information room. Shame about Woolacombe Bay car park prices - mine was £10. Plus, being a spring tide I couldn't find the sea for 2 days! Would definitely stay again. Very good value for me on economy pitch. £100 all in.

4-day visit

Willingcott Club Campsite
We had 4 nights here staying on a hard standing in the lower part of the site, the upper part being a bit featureless. The site’s main asset is the tarmacked Tarka path/cycleway which follows a disused RW line right past the site to Ilfracombe. All walks start and finish on it. On days one and two we walked into Woolacombe but by different routes and on the third day we walked into Ilfracombe. There are regular bus services to Mortehoe, Woolacombe, Braunton, Barnstaple from a bus stop that is a short hop along the Tarka Way.

Willingcott Club Campsite
My wife and I stayed at this site from 2nd to 9th Sept 23 very nice site clean tidy polite friendly staff there to help when needed the usual stuff you would find on club site. A nice touch which I have not seen before is in the information room they had printed the main supermarkets postcodes so you knew where they were. (A heads up if you decide to go there is aim for the B3343 turn left at the pink house short approach road to entrance to site) 10 out of 10 all round

Another lovely stay

Willingcott Club Campsite
Another great stay. This time we headed to the top of the site, felt a little closer to the toilets etc. Stayed on pitch 96 which had a good triangle of grass besides it, great for our pooch. As said by others, everything is immaculate. The wardens are friendly and helpful. There is a hut for borrowing beach items, bucket and spades, belly boards, windbreak, excellent idea. No shop unfortunately but no problems whatsoever. Wholeheartedly recommend.

Mixed Opinions

Willingcott Club Campsite
We booked 10 nights at Willingcott Club Site : 15th - 25th August 2023. 2 adults & 3 children aged 6, 8, & 10. Grass pitch. Nice site, easy to find and entry road passable. Check-in was swift and staff friendly. Shower block is closed 10:30-12:30 daily. This includes all showers, main toilets and laundry. There are 2 services toilets open during this time & access to washing-up facilities. There is only one block and it is clean, but two hours is far too long. Why have 10 toilets, 10 showers, and 6 sinks when even in August this isn't a busy site. Close off half, and halve the cleaning time. Noise. - The wardens love to cut the grass here. Back and forth, back and forth, over the same old patch of grass. The ride-on mower is noisy, smelly and intrusive. Easily within 6 inches of our awning straps. The grass is even being cut when the toilets should be being cleaned!! Windy - Site is quite exposed so ensure you pack extra pegs. Area - Lovely beaches and walks nearby. Beautiful part of the UK. Overall, ok.
