General

  • Small family-run site in Welcombe, on the Devon/Cornwall border
  • Easily accessible from the A39 Atlantic Highway and next to a bus stop
  • Two miles from beaches and the South West Coast Path

Welcome to... Welcombe X. And get prepped to stay here for quite some time: have a quick gander of the pics to see just why.

Welcombe X is a small site in the village of Welcombe, on the border of Devon and Cornwall between Bideford and Bude, and two miles from the coast. It's a friendly and laidback place, lauded by grateful guests as 'perfect', 'lovely', 'fabulous' and 'very friendly and extremely helpful' among many more accolades... obvs you'll have to go and investigate for yourself...

And as for what do to along the coast? You could... stretch your legs on the South West Coast Path or take to the waves in the surfing mecca of Bude... or trot up the cobbled streets at the old fishing village of Clovelly... or decide firmly to do nowt more than bask on as many splendid beaches as is humanly poss. A bus stop is outside the site if you've decided firmly not to do any driving while here.

The site has a peaceful rural atmosphere but is well connected, with direct access from the A39 Atlantic Highway. It's a five-minute walk to the village shop if you need to pick up groceries.

Great site, friendly owner just a bit close to the main road 08/09/2018

  • Liked: 

    Friendly owners, nice showers, easy to find

    Disliked: 

    Close to A39 got used to the noise at busy periods, but the lack of dog walk on site meant a walk on this roadside albeit only for about 50 metres. Not a problem if you miss the busy times though.

  • Fisherman’s Rest 3 bedroom static caravan
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Beautiful caravan in nautical style which my boys particularly loved. Really friendly owners - great location for exploring both Devon & Cornwall - we had a great week.

    Disliked: 

    As advertised on a busy road which was not a problem but no footpath to walk and investigate local area which would be fine if just adults but with younger children not ideal, but would still highly recommend.

Great site, friendly owners. Definitely worth a stay! 09/08/2018

  • Liked: 

    Lovely campsite, big enough for the kids to run around without being out of sight. The toilet/shower block were kept immaculate and not too far away to take the kids during the night. The site owners were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast baps and evening meals were available to buy each day. WiFi was available but we didn’t use it as we wanted some down time as a family.We had a great time at Welcombe X and look forward to visiting again next year!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

It's a mere two miles or five minute' drive from here to the nearest stretch of sand, the sandy, secluded and mighty peaceful beach at Welcombe Mouth.

The same distance will land you at the South West Coast Path for spectacularly scenic hikes around the entire Devon coast (and those of Cornwall, Doreset and Somerset, should you be so inclined). Take the path north to Clovelly or south to Bude, alongside your substantial picnic, and leave time afterwards for a potter around either town.

Kids' attractions and activities are all around, such as the The Milky Way adventure park 10 minutes' drive away at Bideford and famed and fab The Big Sheep amusement parkis within 20 minutes' drive. Do also mosey along to the Gnome Reserve and Wild Flower Garden (15 minutes), set up as a 'pastoral refuge for garden gnomes'. Splendid.

  • Tintagel Castle (22.3 miles)
