Camping near the lovely moors and beaches of North Devon.

Our Umberleigh Club campsite in the Taw Valley is surrounded by rolling hills and meadows and is close to the moors and beaches of north Devon.

This peaceful family-friendly site enjoys a rural location with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Facilities on site include clean, well maintained toilets and showers, a children’s play area, games room with infant's play area, skittles, table tennis table, table football and pool. There is a TV lounge, fishing pool and dog walk. There are also two tennis courts for hire, with free tennis coaching for children during school holidays.

A quarter of a mile from the campsite is the village of Umberleigh. Here you will find an art gallery, an antique shop and a local pub. Umberleigh is also one of the stations on the picturesque Tarka Line which runs between Barnstaple and Exeter.

For clean, sandy beaches and surfing head to Westward Ho, Saunton, Woolacombe and Ilfracombe and for family days out there’s the factory outlet Atlantic Village and Atlantis Adventure Park, Bideford, The Milky Way, The Big Sheep and the Quince Honey Farm.

This is a quiet and practical site that has been enhanced by thoughtful planning and planting.

This review is for Umberleigh

This is a quiet and practical site that has been enhanced by thoughtful planning and planting. There is plenty of space for children to play away from most units in complete safety. Dogs also have the advantage of a long and interesting walk - it is farm land so leads are essential. Our hosts were friendly and helpful ensuring that we felt that no request was unimportant. There was even the helping hand as we were packing up to leave on a very windy Sunday. This site is a good base if you are touring North Devon being 10 minutes from Barnstaple and main routes to all attractions. August sees the annual classic scramble at Berrynarbor near Combe Martin if you are interested in classic motorcycles. Mortehoe has beautiful coastal walk that the dogs love. Unfortunately when we walked to Rockham bay the steps down had disappeared in a landslip. Ilfracombe now has an interesting statue at the mouth of the harbour. This is certainly an area we shall be returning to and we shall be staying at Umberleigh.

Just spent our annual 10 day summer holiday at the Umberleigh site.

This review is for Umberleigh

Just spent our annual 10 day summer holiday at the Umberleigh site. As is expected from the Camping and Caravanning Club, all the facilities were in excellent order. The wardens were particularly hospitable and helpful, even to the point of going round to every unit/tent on the site to advise on what should be done when the weather turned very windy and wet, and indeed it did turn very wet and windy. The site drained very well and dried up quite quickly. The Games room was great for out little one who enjoyed many a game of skittles. We were pitched fairly close to the play area, so on some nights it was quite noisy up to around 10pm, after that the site was completely quiet. A word of warning though, quite a few pitches are on sloping ground (not mentioned in the club handbook) and we were infact pitched on quite a slope and therefore spent quite a few nights rolling into each other in our tent. A few of the caravans were chocked as high up as was possible and looked very precarious. Over the 10 days we stayed there the local farmers decided it was time to do �Muck Spreading� however they did not rake it in to the ground, the smell was horrendous. Nothing that site could do about it but be warned. The location of the site is not too bad, about 30 mins away from the major attractions (Milky Way, Watermouth Castle etc), but that itself is a good thing because it keeps the site from being too busy. A fish and chip van visited on Tuesday evening and this was very good, however get there was quite a queue. In general a small, well kept site with very good facilities � we will be returning.

Stayed for 10 nights with family of 4. kids 11+13 yrs old.

This review is for Umberleigh

Stayed for 10 nights with family of 4. kids 11+13 yrs old. Facilities for kids great with games barn and tv room to make friends. Bit further from the coast than I thought. Allow 25mins car drive to get to the beach.This does mean you are away from Beach crowds though and very peaceful site. Took our fishing kit but did not use as too much else to do. Lake is quite small and a 10min walk from site so unless very keen on light fishing I wouldn't bother. Site and wardens were great. Very friendly and always on hand for anything. Kids enjoyed the tennis training and I would recommend the Chip van. Reasonable prices and very good food. Would def recommend this site for all types of camper. The area is very nice to visit and central to that location.

My wife , son and myself spent 11 nights here and found it a great base to explore North Deven from. Very friendly and helpful staff on site. The games room was a welcome suprise, and the local pubs were very good. The Rising Sun is an an easy 10 min walk away.
