When you rent a holiday cottage or a holiday rental home in Woolacombe, Devon there's always something for the children to do, come rain or shine

Woolacombe is a seaside resort in North Devon. It is a west facing sandy beach and is called a "combe" because it lies at the mouth of a valley. Woolacombe sands stretches for three miles and as far as Putsborough. This is a good beach for those learning to surf, as is Saunton and it has been awarded "Premier Seaside Beach" and the "Blue Flag" for its water quality, cleanliness and facilities and has been ranked in the world's top ten beaches.

Places to holiday in Woolacombe

Woolacombe Bay is a popular destination for surfing and has many surf schools and places where you can hire equipment. 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.

Woolacombe is a lively village with great café's, restaurants and pubs serving a la carte, pancakes, carvery and seafood, which is why so many people return to their coastal cottage year after year. If the weather turns bad the Play Hut in neighbouring Ilfracombe has an indoor soft play area with slides, ball pits, games, bridges and a great deal more.

Lovely Cottage

Crazy recycling system by the local council. I was stressed deciding which bin I should put my empty can of beer. Brilliant cottage though.
