Summer is approaching and everyone’s hoping to be back at the beach soon. You might have seen photos of crowded beaches in the news, but the reality is that if you take sensible and simple precautions the seaside can be one of the safest places to be. Especially because we’re often told by sources like the World Health Organisation (WHO) that it’s far less easy to transmit viruses outdoors in the fresh air than in enclosed indoor spaces. And beaches are all about clean sea air and space!Read more

We welcome dogs on all our Holiday Parks; Golden Coast, Woolacombe Bay, Twitchen House and Easewell Farm. They are also welcome on Woolacombe Beach (more details below), voted Best Beach in England in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2020.Read more

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.
The summer holidays are upon us, which means most of the beaches in Devon will be littered with families, jostling for space to play frisbee and queuing in the sun for a lunch time cone of chips. But how about a secret beach spot reserved just for you? How about a quiet spot tucked away from the tourists? How about dramatic scenes the locals like to keep to themselves?
I moved to Woolacombe a few months ago and taking a surfing lesson was definitely on my “must do” list. I became fascinated with watching the surfers and those having their first go in the water. I love the idea of riding waves and being so close to nature. I love surfing culture, the vibes, everything about it. I want to be part of it.
I can swim well yet something about the ocean makes me nervous. I want to have a go at surfing so I need to overcome this.
There’s no better way to fall in love with Devon than by stomping along its beautiful coast lines. Over rugged cliffs and churning waves, through sun-kissed farm land and by sleepy country pubs, our county is best discovered by foot.
Don’t know where to start? Here are our top three rambles around Woolacombe that everyone in the family can enjoy.
