 Whatt can I say but amazing! We have camped here every year for 8 years now, weve done weekends, weeks, fortnights. Weve stayed in their vans, challet too. All of good standard for type.

We have always camped and foound twitchen to be the best especailly since they have had the new toulet block which I wanted to take my time in!

And the sauna, when not packed with kids and hormonal girls after lads! was rather relaxing.

The entertainment is super day and night. Location is good for exploring, we have been going for years and only last year found the real wonder of Ilfracombe! What a gem.

The club at peak times is rammed. Be there before 7pm to get a seat. Staff are good with kids. Pools are good, although the last 3 days the mushroom decided to work when it felt and kids were very disapointed.

Beaches are super and clean but do take the bus, buy a pass for the week and take advantage of it, its worth it and we really do have a stress free, drinking and eating ( although not excessively) holiday. We did find that when we took car to beach we drove out of woolacombe to a quieter beach, follow road out of woolacombe past the carpark and keep going, its a way but worth it. When there you can see woolacombe but the beach is quieter and has some nice rocks to perch by.

 Our 4th time at Twitchen as ours friends have a seasonal pitch there. My views on the site are mixed, but overall there are more positives than negatives and it really depends on what you are looking for. The site is in a lovely location with attractive walks to Woolacombe and Morthoe, which takes about 25 minutes. The walk back is quite steep and hard work for those with pushchairs. Woolacombe itself is a large surfing beach with plenty of car parking close to the beach at £5 a day. The bus from Twitchen is an excellent alternative and costs just £2 for a ticket which covers your stay.

Facilities on site ( especially the new block ) are excellent, with large showers and a sauna and steam room. They do get a bit busy in peak periods but that’s the same on most sites. The site has both indoor and outdoor pools, with the indoor being small but very nice. There is crazy golf, a clubhouse offering kids clubs and evening entertainment for the adults, 2 pool tables, a table tennis table and a large TV screen ( poor quality picture though ), a café / restaurant which looks pretty basic, a take away which offers reasonable quality food and an excellent shop. The children’s play area looks very good, although ours are too old to use it now. The site has a lot of static vans, so it does get busy in the peak summer period, although it did not seem that noisy at night.

My main moan about the site is the pitches, which vary a lot in size, gradient and quality. With a bit more work these could be improved and it’s a shame that they don’t invest a bit of money to improve them. The super pitches are not that super, especially given the price you pay for them, and as a previous reviewer stated the taps are the push type, so you need to take some large cable ties to keep them permanently on. There is cable TV on the super pitches and you need a 10 metre lead for this. The camping area looks very hilly so you need to pick your spot carefully.

If you are looking for a site with plenty for the kids to do and close enough to walk to the beaches this is a good site to chose, if you accept that your pitch may not be great. If you are looking for a quieter, more attractive site, with better pitches, consider Warcombe farm, which is about a mile away and looks lovely, but has no pool etc.

 Have just got back from a weekend at Twitchen Park and we had a great time. Lovely site, very peaceful during the day and at night. Fantastic views!

I had reserved a pitch in the rally field so there was plenty of room. The toilet and shower facilities were very good, always clean and tidy.

We used the bus service to the beach and for £1.50 for your entire holiday it saved a lot of time and hassle with having to drive to the beach.

The on site shop was good and reasonably priced.

Great park would recommend it to anyone and would definitely return!

Reviewer: Dan the man 1 review from this member

 Arrived on site to be greeted by the site wardens who directed us to our pitch, The pitch I booked was described as a super pitch, but it was nothing like a super pitch. The water tap was a push button type that you would find in a toilet block and has no direct fitting for water supply to caravan or aqua rolls. Also the waste grid is a long way from the hard standing about 6mts so make sure you take plenty of waste pipe.

The new showers are excellent with sauna and steam room and are kept very clean. They have a great bus service that costs just £1.50 per person per week and goes to all of there sites on the way to the beach and will collect you at the end of the day, the car parks cost £5 per day so you can save £35 per week.

The staff on the site are very friendly and the site shop is reasonably priced and they sell gas. There is a tesco supermarket about 10 mins away by car and also mullcott caravans which has a well stocked accesory shop is local to.

The beach is very nice at woolacombe and is well managed by the lifegaurds. This is a nice site but can be very busy in peak weeks and some of the pitches are on a slope. I would like to mention the wardons who are always on hand if needed and are very helpful

 Our first visit to this park.
We stayed for eight days, 12th to 20th May 2007, in our touring caravan.
The facilities were excellent, a new toilet block was just being completed.
There are many hard standing pitches quite a few with seasonal
tourers on.
We had a grass pitch, many of these are sloping so a bit of levelling up is called for
In the evening there was a good family cabaret on every night, not always the case on many sites so early in the season. Food is also available most of the day.
The staff were always friendly and helpful.
There are both indoor and outdoor swimming pools for the energetic.
The companies own bus runs a service into Woolacombe, finishing at teatime
The pretty village of Mortehoe is a short walk away
The village has three pubs, we found the food at the Chichester Arms excellent . It is also in the Camra Good Beer Guide. There is a lovely beer garden at the rear
If you carry on walking through the village the road takes you down into Woolacombe with some stunning coastal views along the way.
A site we will certainly visit again.

Reviewer: Ade+Shabba 2 reviews from this member

 Very clean and well maintained site, The new shower and toilet block had just opened whilst we were there. These were fantastic with really big shower rooms with wash basin in each room. Shop on site was good and reasonably priced. We didn't try the chippy as other people in our party had said it wasn't good.
Childrens play area and swimming pool were very good and clean. We went over to easewell farm one night and that wasn't up to much but we all had some really nice food one night over at the Woolacombe bay park. 
The site operates a bus service down to the other sites and the beach and back for only £1.50 a week and you can use it as often as you want. The walks to the beach are very nice and the beach is fantastic, but a bit of a pain if you have a pram like us so the bus was great.
They are building more pitches at the moment which was a bit noisy and dusty but this will soon be finished.
The curbs to get on the pitches are very high and a pain to reverse the van onto and some of the pitches on the lower tier of I field are very ramped up to the back and you will need blocks for under your caravans legs. 
Not a lot to fault it on really, be careful of what pitch you get on I field as number 16 is right next to (and I mean as you come out of your awning its there) the chemical toilet waste emptying point and the big biffa still bins.
The touring site warden was quite helpful but you could not tell him anything (know what I mean).There is a fish van that comes round the site selling fresh and frozen fish and this was very good a good bar-b was had by all.
Four families inc 12 kids, went and all in all we had a great time and the weather was awsome for easter.
It is also very nice to see the owners reinvesting money back into their sites year after year unlike most of the Haven sites we have been to. We would come here again and have no problem recommending it to others.

Reviewer: Pegleg 3 reviews from this member

 We enjoyed our stay here especially as it was out of season and therefore very quiet.
The pitch was a great size and we have access to our own water.
The toilets were clean, although in need of modernisation.  The showers did not stay on that long so washing involves lots of pressing the button.
The swimming pool was really nice, again because it was out of season we had it to ourselves a lot of the time.
The shop was well stocked and well priced, although we felt the take-away was over priced.
The location was fantastic for Morthoe and Woolacombe.
All in all it was a great site to stay on and I would stay here again.

Reviewer: Wendy24g 2 reviews from this member

 First time camping. Long drive but a friendly welcome. Enjoyed the freedom of pitching wherever. With a fairly big tent (gelert 8+4) I found alot of sites restricted the size so unable to accommodate us.
Facilities excellent and even though the weather not great the kids and us still had loads of fun.
Entertainment similar to Haven the kids loved it and us Adults enjoyed it as well. The good sign is when the kids don't bother you all evening because there are having too much fun!
Quite expensive but will definitely go again.

 I really enjoyed this campsite the facilities were always in good condition and there was plenty to do within and around the site.
All the staff were very friendly and looked after there customers well.
I really enjoyed my visit whilst there and had plenty to do for the whole two weeks of my visit.

I would recommend this site to anyone, and would definatley go back again.

 Just spent 5 days here (before Easter). The site wardens are really friendly & helpful. The toilets were spotless. The Bistro/Takeaway food is reasonably priced and a good variety for adults & children. Our 6 year old enjoyed the childrens clubs although he didn't go to everyone as they are run 4 times a day. Theres also a great pub (Fortescue Arms) just down the road where there is a menu that would have something to suit everyone theres so much choice. Theres lots in the area to do but would recommend Watersmeet Castle as a good day out (take a picnic) cost £28 for 2 adults & 1 child but they do a family ticket for £34 (2adults & 2 children). If you think you would like to go back again you can pay an extra £2 for a photo & then you can go as many times as you want during the year for just £1 per person per visit.
