Woolacombe is famous for its 3 miles of golden sandy beach which has won many awards - Blue Flag, Best Family Beach and Best British Beach, so is popular with families and surfers alike. The beach is patrolled by Life Guards at one end so the children can swim and play safely in the sea and as there is at least another 2 miles of waves to surf the surfers can enjoy themselves as well. You can view our holiday cottages in Woolacombe here for fantastic family beach holidays in Devon.
The village is situated between the headlands of Baggy Point and Morte Point and there are stunning coastal walks either side of the beach. Mortehoe dates back to Norman times and is well worth the lovely walk along the headland. To the other end of the beach you come to Putsborough and then the path rises up to Baggy Point and over the top to Croyde. For a day out, visit Ilfracombe and enjoy the harbour, take a boat trip to Lundy Island or a days sea fishing with charters available daily.

It shares a large roof-top balcony with amazing views right across Woolacombe Bay and is a 5 min walk to the beach and town. A very different property -
Seascape, is a fantastic 5 bedroom house with amazing views across the sea to Lundy.
