Site No 154 - Wood Farm Caravan and Camping Park


With the exception of Bardsea Leisure, where we have bought our last two caravans, this is the first time in over thirty years as caravanners we have stayed on a commercial site: always before, if needing a “proper” site going to either Caravan Club or Camping and Caravan Club sites. The Camping and Caravan Club have a site just down the road from Wood Farm but they were not happy for us to have a look around (not that they said that in so many words) and were far more interested in telling us the rules and what we would not be allowed to do.

When we arrived at Wood Farm to enquire we were invited to look around and perhaps have a coffee in the restaurant. Seeing an ACSI site we enquired if they accepted the ACSI card and were told they did with a price of €16 per night which they translated to £12, it was extra for addition people and cars but the receptionist reminded us that ACSI price included a dog and that if Paul and Carol’s car came no further on to the site than the car park (almost directly behind our pitch) there would be no “extra car" charge.

The site is on a quite steep hill but the actual pitches are flat, and being on the hill many have stunning views over toward Golden Cap and the coast. The facilities were modern and well kept some blocks comprised the usual mix of loo’s showers etc while other blocks were all unisex shower-rooms, there were also (for a small extra charge) some family bathrooms if a long hot soak is your thing you could be accommodated.

There is a restaurant/bar on site that he had intended to try but sadly never quite managed it.

Easily the best “proper” site we have stayed on without the petty rules and regulations of the two clubs.
