Sand, Sea and Sunshine
Hours of sunshine on your skin, miles of sand between your toes, salty spray in your hair and the sea calling you in for a dip. Woolacombe is a magical place where childhood dreams are made, and adults start to dream again. Read more
9 things to do on a wet and windy day
When the sun is shining and the skies are blue, we have big smiles on our faces and Woolacombe Beach lovingly calls us to descend upon its golden sands. We are in Devon though and we don’t always get what we wish for, sometimes it’s wet and windy and we must change our plans.
We have so many all-weather things to do for you and your family. We’re a top destination come rain or shine, of course, so your holiday will never be ruined if the heavens do open!
Splash around all day
We’ve put our pools at the very heart of our Devon Holiday Parks so you can splash around every single day of your holiday, on any of our Parks. Our indoor pools are open from 8am to 9pm each day, all season long. That’s what holidays are all about, isn’t it?
Your WOW guide
The cream always goes on first…
We may be biased but our breathtaking North Devon coastline is nothing but spectacular, and here in Woolacombe the golden beaches are at their very best. Rolling surf, magnificent cliffs and proud headlands all alongside the softest sand and the scent of salty sea spray.
Teaching Poodles to Read
And Studying Ants
Why do we have Bank Holidays?
Sir John Lubbock, first Baron of Avebury, studied ants and tried to teach his poodles how to read. He was also a scientific writer, banker and politician. In 1871 he drafted the Bank Holiday Bill, which created our first Bank Holidays, when it became law.
Are the Easter eggs running out?
They might be.
So, we’re in the Easter school holidays and those huge displays of eggs in the shops are fast running out! There used to be a pile of chocolate eggs on sale, just after the double bank holiday, however Supermarkets have become wise to this. Stock levels have been reduced to stop waste.
Why we celebrate Easter
From Easter egg hunts to biting the ears off chocolate bunnies, the end of Lent to the resurrection of Christ, our Spring festival celebrates depictions of new life and change. For those that are not so religious, it marks a fun-filled long weekend.
Whether it’s about chocolate or church for you, our Devon Holiday Parks and the rest of the country are getting ready for Easter. We have some quite interesting and, somewhat, amusing trivia that may shine a light on why chocolate, bunnies and religion share the same event. You almost certainly won’t know every fact…
Easter in Woolacombe
The Easter holidays are here, the skies are already blue in North Devon and, despite the frosty mornings, the first hints of a long and warm Summer are in the air. Our Holiday Parks are now all open and we’re enjoying the Spring season.
When is Easter? Easter Sunday is late in 2019, falling on 21st April.
29th March 2019
The finishing touches are going into Holiday Park opening preparations for our Woolacombe Bay, Twitchen House and Easewell Farm Holiday Parks. Spring is upon us and we’re almost ready for the 2019 holiday season.
So, what preparations go into opening a Holiday Park? We stole fifteen minutes with General Manager of Woolacombe Bay Holiday Park, Lauren Church, to understand why she’s so busy right before our guests arrive…
Mother’s Day or Mothering Sunday is a day for families, where we show the special women in our lives just how much they mean to us – mums, grandmothers, nannies, stepmothers and, of course, mothers-in-law. The fourth Sunday of Lent is Mother’s Day, March 31st in 2019, always three weeks before Easter Sunday.
