Mother’s Day or Mothering Sunday is a day for families, where we show all the special women in our lives just how much they mean to us – mums, grandmothers, nannies, guardians, stepmothers and, of course, mothers-in-law. The fourth Sunday of Lent is Mother’s Day, March 29th in 2020, always three weeks before Easter Sunday.Read more
Woolacombe Holidays, Christmas & New Year
Our Woolacombe holidays season ended in November, but we’ve been hard at work every day since. We’re busy adding more caravans and more hot tubs. We’re working on better connectivity, easier ordering in our restaurants and a host of new entertainment.Read more
What’s on in September & beyond?
Summer’s still here! Officially, Summer really is still here until 21st September and Summer’s final flourish gives us a wealth of things to do in Woolacombe. Oh, the rest of the season looks pretty good too. So, what’s on in Woolacombe?
There are three miles of gorgeous golden sands and salty surf spray that make Woolacombe Beach one of the best in Britain!
Are you staying for the Summer Bank Holiday weekend? Or, are you making a week of it? We have one of the Best Beaches in Britain and the weather is set to be hot and sunny too!
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.
It can sometimes be difficult to keep little people engaged when on holiday. After all, us parents are an embarrassing bunch who would rather just sit around on the beach snacking and chatting. Where’s the fun in that?
To keep those little faces smiling, here are four of Devon’s best children’s events activities this Summer.
