Woolacombe

Woolacombe on Devon’s north coast is a popular family resort with the most perfect stretch of pristine, award winning sandy beach; a great spot for a cottage holiday by the sea!

The centre piece of the village is without doubt its beach; three miles of sand that has received a lot of praise over the years including an ‘England for Excellence Gold Award’, Blue Flag status and Premier Seaside Beach awards for its water quality, facilities and cleanliness. The beaches’ lifeguards will ensure that the young ones are safe during the summer season and water sports enthusiasts will find plenty to do here including some excellent surfing.

In the village there is laid-back atmosphere, a good selection of restaurants and plenty of pubs, and close by the village of Mortehoe has some very ancient buildings that are well worth visiting.

For days out along the coast to the north is the Victorian seaside resort of Ilfracombe, where visitors can take pleasure cruises to Lundy Island which lies off the north Devon coast. The island is rich in wildlife and sea birds and has wonderful views of the Devon coast. Also to the north is Lee Bay; an extremely pretty village occupying a rocky cove, with rockpools and a sandy beach.

To the south is the bustling coastal town of Barnstable where you’ll find plenty of speciality shops, restaurants and pubs; well worth visiting during your stay.

The Tarka Cycle Trail forms part of the National Cycle Network and is a most beautiful scenic circular cycle trail right on the north Devon coast. It includes two traffic free stretches and a National Trust coast route that passes beside the sea at Woolacombe Sands; a great way to explore the country roads, magnificent Devon countryside and picturesque villages.

    Overlooking a secluded valley, just 8 miles from Woolacombe’s long sandy beach, these three superb holiday properties each enjoy their own enclosed garden area, and are peacefully set down a mile long made-up private road. Close to the owner’s home, they have been imaginatively and beautifully converted from former farm buildings, incorporating glass frontages to take advantage of the lovely views over the stream-bordered paddocks which lead to beautiful woodland walks. Children love getting to know the bunch of friendly animals, which include miniature ponies and donkeys, llamas, pet sheep and small flock of traditional breed hens.
    Perfect for a relaxing holiday, the area holds a wealth of attractions. The ancient town of Barnstaple, with its Domesday associations, lies just 5 miles distant. Here the visitor can find a good selection of shops, restaurants, museums, a theatre and various sporting facilities, not to mention a 14th-century parish church, a fascinating Heritage Centre and a daily Pannier Market. For watersports enthusiasts, the beautiful beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde Bay and Saunton Sands are a must, affording some of the finest windsurfing in Devon, as well as being a haven for sunbathers and sandcastle builders. Wonderful walking and riding can be enjoyed in the nearby Exmoor National Park (6 miles), where red deer roam the rugged moors and magnificent sea views can be admired from lofty cliffs and headlands.
    Among the many places to visit within a 5 mile radius are Arlington Court (NT), with its collection of model ships and Victorian accessories, and Marwood Hill Gardens, complete with its string of lakes, rare shrubs and exotic trees.
