Wet in Woolacombe

What to do when it’s wet in Woolacombe

When it’s wet in Woolacombe you still have so much to do. We all love blue skies and sunny days, running to the beach and jumping in the waves. Sometimes the clouds do appear though, this is England after all, but don’t let that ruin your plans. Woolacombe won’t stay wet for long anyway!

There are so many attractions and activities for all-weather family fun, both on our four Devon Holiday Parks and in the local area. We’ve put a list of some of the activities we recommend for you, when it’s wet in Woolacombe.
