Places to holiday in Woolacombe

The population in the winter months is small but this swells significantly with holidaymakers in the summer. Visitors used to stay in hotels, guest houses and holiday apartments, but times are changing and the best way to see all that this area has to offer is from the comfort of a self catering holiday rental because it offers so much more freedom than a hotel.

Most of the entertainment in the area is aimed specifically at tourists and the crazy golf course in the centre of the village features model buildings of various North Devon Landmarks at each hole. Woolacombe holiday cottages are perfect for exploring the coastal path and the many attractions that North Devon has on offer.
