What a gem of a site. Loved it from the start to the end. Wonderfull owners who were happy to help any time. Amazing sea views and lovely little cove. Great bar for the family.
Our kids loved the pool even though it was only luke warm, they didn't want to get out.
We went sea fishing and kayaking. Did all the coastal paths around watermouth. The only time we went out in the car was to go shopping in lilfracombe (tesco / coop / lidl and a great butchers on main st)
Toilets are portaloos but well kept and clean. Great showers and they have now just installed new pod showers near camping area.
We loved it here and didn't want to go home. Will be back soon.
We relocated here having left Napps early due to the exposed camping fields and the strong winds. Watermouth cove is much better sheltered in the EHU field, although the top field is still open to the wind.
The pitches aren't very level, but the site is flat overall, which is good for kids. There's a decent playground and 2 pools. The private beach is small, but again good for little ones. There are spectacular views from the top of the site on the coastal path, with a pod of dolphins passing through every night we stayed.
The bar is pretty good, with reasonable food. Facilities are pretty good, although the showers are a bit tight if you've got your 2 year old with you!
Ilfracombe is a short drive away with a great butchers. Combe Martin is a pretty little town, but limited parking.
We'll go back to watermouth cove when the weather's better.
The doubling of the prices for bank holiday week was a but cheeky, good value at other times though.
The setting of this camp-site was amazing, it had its own beach and a harbour. The Club House there sold soft and alcoholic drinks at a reasonable price.
There was also a shop which stocked all the basics you would need. The owners were really lovely and very helpful.
The toilets and the shower cubicles were spotless and generally nice to use. I would point out at this stage that we were in the main camping field, the toilets in the overflow camping field the showers were just port-a-loo/shower but still very clean inside them.
Customer service was brilliant, if we needed to find something out they were always more than happy to help.
Overall a very lovely stay and will definitely go back!
We stayed and this campsite the 2nd of September for 1 week in our touring caravan.
The reason we picked this site was because we go kayaking and this site had its own private beach and easy access to launch our kayaks, but due to some horrible weather we only managed to get out 3 times kayaking.
The site is reasonable level; the shower and toilet block are porter cabin style but were kept clean with excellent showers.
There was a club house that also done some nice food at reasonable prices, but due to it being late in the season the club was only open in the evenings with no entertainment.
There were 2 outside swimming pools but again these were closed as well, but this may have been due to the weather at it rained most days.
The staff was very friendly, polite and helpful.
The only problem we had during our week was water coming up into our awning, the awning didnít leak, but the water seemed to come up through the ground, so we had to wear our shoes in the awning, the problem got so bad, we had to put a water proof sheet on top of our ground sheet so we didnít tread mud into our caravan.
Themarshall6 had a great week at Watermouth - great site and great views, run by an extended family who couldn't have been more accommodating.
The location is brilliant for seeing North Devon, but to be honest the weather was so good and with a pool on the site we hardly left. Plenty to do on the site to keep the kids occupied and the pub was also a nice bonus.
We stayed in the camping field which we thought would be a bit basic, but the facilities were spotless, cleaned throughout the day, with plenty of hot water.
We spent 5 nights camping here, and would definitely return again.
We found all the staff very friendly and welcoming.
The site was spotless, with plenty of bins dotted around.
Our 4 children (12, 11, 4, 3) enjoyed the play area - which is situated well within the site (We've been to sites where the play area is either right next to the main road, or tucked behind trees, next to a river!).
The toilet block was very clean, and there were even sockets 'in the Ladies' for straighteners!
The separate shower block was also spotless.
There was a 'satellite' shower/toilet area near the camping fields, which were quite quirky. Proper shower cubicles within a Portaloo-style box. Again, clean & tidy.
The on-site shop was well-stocked for essentials, and I can recommend the Pain au Chocolat for brekky. The staff in here were lovely.
We didn't hire kayaks, but took our own. The access to the water was a little tricky, but when you do hire, it looked like 2 guys would carry your boat down to the shoreline for you.
We made use of the bar/restaurant on 1 or 2 nights. We enjoyed the Pub Quiz on one night, and the Kids' Disco on another night. There was a room next to the bar with things to keep our older kids amused - it was like a mini-arcade with a Grabbing Machine, Betting on the Horses, a shooting game - stuff like that. Outside the bar was a temporary marquee, with a pool table, a few rides for toddlers, and extra tables & chairs.
The food was lovely, although all the kids' food came with chips. A lack of originality for the kids' choices would be my only slightly negative grumble.
The pool area was clean, with plenty of sun loungers. We had great weather during our stay, so the kids loved the (cold!) pools. Nice that no-one under 15 was allowed in without parents. Kept the area calm.
We had a day on the beach at Woolacombe. Not too far away, and a lovely beach.
We visited Watermouth Castle which is a 2 minute walk
Away. Felt like a bit of a time-warp, but pleasantly surprised by how much all the kids enjoyed themselves. It's no Alton Towers - it's more oldy worldy than that. We thought that the brochure didn't match the actual venue, if you know what I mean!
