Road through the pitches

General

  • Small family-run site near 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 near 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.

Really friendly owners who made us all feel very welcome …10/10/2020

    Really friendly owners who made us all feel very welcome even before we had arrived. I was running the London Marathon on the Sunday in Bideford, the weather was awful, we called just to check we could still stay as we thought we might arrive late. Told that was no problem at all and we were even given a hard standing instead of the grass pitch that had been booked. Highly recommend would stay there again.

    Toilets and shower rooms were really clean. Each pitch had its own sectioned off area. Ratty and Bob were really friendly and helpful. Well positioned for visiting up and down the North Devon or Cornwall area. Star gazing- wow!

    Bit too near the main road, sometimes noisy.

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 park is 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.
