Barbecues Tips

Yes, we allow barbecues! Some of our accommodation have these in the outside areas, ready to use as soon as you arrive. You are also welcome to bring your own – we ask that these are lifted off the ground so as not to burn any grassed areas. Please do ensure they are put out properly and dispose of all coals safely.

We’ve got plenty of BBQ Tips and Tricks to make your food as tasty as can be.

Rainy Day Tips

We’ve had a fabulous sunny start to the year, and long may we continue to have blue skies and glorious sunshine. However, should those Rainy Days appear then we have many options for you and the family.

Everything from sea safaris to local theme parks, as well as zoos, cinemas and other local attractions. A muddy walk across the moors is always fun too!

Beach Social Distancing Tips

We have an amazing beach here in Woolacombe and we’re sure you’ll be heading there at some point during your stay, to enjoy miles of golden sand and the long surfable ways. There are many amenities and sports activities available too.

We have listened to our guest’s questions, so we’ve put together a Beach Social Distancing guide to stay socially distant on the beach while visiting. We hope you all get to enjoy the area in the safest possible way.

Dogs: Woof Guide

We love dogs in Woolacombe, and we want our furry guests to enjoy their holiday just as much as you do. Our Woof Guide has been put together with love and attention. We have included our four-legged friends in many of our social distancing restrictions, as have many of the local businesses.

We currently aren’t allowed to run our big yellow bus, but there are many car parks in the area for any of your day tripping needs.

More Holiday Tips

In your Holiday Home you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, with all the crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils you’re likely to need. This includes a microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle, cooker and oven. You will need to bring a few things along with you though.

You will need to bring towels with you for most accommodation, this includes hand towels, beach towels and tea towels. You’ll also need to bring all your toiletries with you. You’ll have a small toilet roll in each accommodation on arrival, however you’ll need to top this up for the remainder of your stay.

We do provide a small starter pack of cleaning products; however, you will need to bring washing up utensils and liquids, cleaning products etc. Don’t worry if you forget something, we have convenience stores on all Parks.
