 Been to this site twice before facilities are good but some need a bit of tlc,

Pitch was full service with hard and I mean hard standing bent rockpegs knocking them in,

Check in good guy who checks you in is a bit of a comedian but very friendly, staff very helpful,

Grandkids said pool is great,

Food is good a little pricy but Good portions, service can be hit and miss only two serving points in food/bar area you order food and drinks a same points so if you have eaten and want another drink you have to queue with people wanting food which does slow service.

Entertainment is family orientated but very good,

Would we go again yes.

 I would say if you want a quiet campsite, don't go here! Entertainment is on tap and you get to enjoy it on all 3 of the Woolacombe Bay Campsites.

There are swimming pools, evening entertainment, play parks, pottery, children's activities and probably more!

We stayed for 2 nights and for us that was enough, it was definitely a change to the usual quiet sites we go to. We embraced it and enjoyed it.

 We'd been changed to Twitchen House from our original booking at Golden Coast, on reflection I'm glad, it's a little bit quieter and has a better indoor pool.

As previously stated some of the pitches can be hard to get on without recruiting a small army. As the Covid restrictions at the time had shut the toilet block we'd booked a fully serviced pitch and had no such problem.

All the pitches in our area were gravelled hardstanding meaning it looked more like a car park than a campsite field. The pitch was spacious enough but on a slight slope with the grey water drain at the top. If anyone has figured out a way of getting waste water to drain uphill from a caravan please could you let me know!

This was the 1st week the site was open after lockdown and certain Covid restrictions were in place, the cafe bar was outside seating only and everything needed to be ordered via an app. This worked well during our stay. The pool could only be used in pre booked 1 hour sessions, very frustrating but this site is not alone in this.

The beauty of this place is that you get to use all the other sites in the group. Golden Coast is a 10 min walk along a footpath and is where most of the activities take place. They all need to be pre booked but were very good. The wave rider is great fun as are the segways. Mrs DM also enjoyed a pamper in the spa.

There's another footpath that takes you down to Woolacombe in about 30 mins. The cafe on Barricane beach does a great curry and I can recommend the waffle place by the adventure golf. Ilfraccome and Croyde are also worth a visit.

It's not an area we visit much but we will return to Twitchen House one day. Staff did a great job but I imagine it's so much better without Covid restrictions.

 Great location but terrible pitch. Pitch had a substantial curb and a narrow roadway. It took motor mover and three strong people to eventually move onto the "pitch".

Pitch is tarmac with a narrow grass strip only the width of the awning and not width enough for guys. Very tight space to next pitches. Very little space to sit out.

Site also allowed someone to pitch wrong way taking up the wrong awning space so our daughter had no awning space on her pitch.

Site is as steep as a caravan can handle even with the use of deep concrete blocks under the front stays. This also means that the waste drains are higher on many pitches than the caravan.

One of the worst sites we've stayed on. None of the touring caravanners we spoke to were planning to return again. And all for £70 a night. :(

Toilets are good. On site mini supermarket is well stocked. Grandkids loved the swimming pools.

 Just returned from two weeks camping. The site is clean and very well maintained. Plenty of toilets and showers never having to wait.

The camping area has variety of pitch types from grass to hard standing. We were initially pitched in field K which has lovely views over the bay. However it is very slopped and exposed to the wind. Unfortunately we weren't blessed with the weather and with strong winds forecast we asked to move pitches.

Staff very helpful and we moved to a more sheltered (gravel) pitch, it meant we needed to buy new tent pegs but worth it. We survived the 50mph winds unlike some, many people left in the night and several flat tents the next morning.

Apart from the weather the site is in a beautiful area. Walk down through the woods to Woolacombe it's lovely walk. Have a curry at the Barricane Beach cafe.

Walk into Mortehoe and to Mortepoint.

The on site restaurant is reasonable and you can take dogs in but only a small section.

Outdoor pool warm but very busy. Found the indoor pool good fun with the flames.

The British Weather has put us off returning.

Reviewer: TrevorSm 1 review from this member

 First the good part. The shower block was very clean and modern. The entertainment and activities are good. However the caravan park is not really what is advertised. The pitches are advertised as 10x10M and level. Ours was less than 9x9M and not level.

In fact concrete blocks are provided to help level the van. The space between the rows was only just wide enough to get the caravan down and so it would be extremely difficult to reverse the caravan onto the pitch. A motor mover is a must, it was awkward even with one.

It was not easy to get the car alongside the van on the allocated space. Some pitches have a kerb to get over. We would have had great difficulty getting the van out when we came to leave without our motor mover, as the site was still very full.

I realise we were there over Easter and it was expected to be busy, but it felt very cramped. There is no where for the kids to ride their bikes and signs banning this.

The advertised sea views were certainly not to be seen from where we were! We were generally disappointed.

 Just spent 4 weeks with only 3 misty days at this well run and friendly site with good clean facilities. All staff were courteous knowledgeable and helpful. All facilities were well managed.

We will book for golden coast next year Only because of the narrowness of the approach road (station road). I am extremely surprised that the problems with this very narrow road with passing places has not been high-, lighter before.

The road is often closed due to vehicles becoming trapped in gridlock. At busy times it can take up to two hours to travel the two miles to the site ( even without a caravan!)

The local authority and the many sites should widen this minor road for the convenience of all users. When the road is sorted out we would return.

Reviewer: GlampingChris 2 reviews from this member

 Just back from Twitchen House - we won't be returning either. The toilet block looks good, but stank for the whole weekend we were there. The main camping field is on a ridiculous slope so much so that there were a number of occasions where members of our family slipped over in our bell tent (and we managed to get on one of the flatter bits).

There are no pitches marked out on the main field so that it becomes a free for all with tents crammed in on the flatter spots - this to the extent that we were unable to get our car out at all at one point.

The outdoor pool is just okay - warm enough, but with many tiles missing which scratched my daughter when she bumped against one spot. The changing facilities for this one are tiny. The cubicles are the smallest possible - you can just have room to turn around once you shut the door.

The site shop is well stocked and reasonably priced. The bar overpriced and understaffed.

We do a lot of camping and I've never seen so many dogs on a site. Most were under control, but a number were just roaming about the pitches, relieving themselves wherever they went. When it came to pack up I had the inevitable joy of cleaning crap off the bell tent ground sheet - a fitting farewell from this site.

It feels like this site is geared up toward static caravans with little consideration given to touring/camping. Despite the stunning views, I wouldn't recommend this park to anyone.

 Just back from Twitchen house this was a prize that we won from UKCampsite, the site is well laid out facilities very good toilets clean, site very hilly local town/village Woolacombe clean but busy ( what it would be like in main season who knows ) approach road can be a bit testing if you are towing (especially if you meet the site bus who seems to think it is great to FORCE everyone to reverse even if there is room to pass ). Their are 4 camps in the group and you can use the facilities on all 4 which can be good if you have a young family, Can only recommend this site/sites to all.
