Many of our holiday cottage guests love exploring the beach, Woolacombe is an award-winning Blue Flag beach, that is almost three miles long, meaning there is plenty of room for its many visitors to enjoy the golden sands and clear blue seas. 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. The trendy, family friendly village is situated between the headlands of Baggy Point and Morte Point and there are stunning coastal walks either side of the main beach. Within the village there is something for everyone, including traditional pubs, stylish bistros and a great range of shops, so it is possible to never get back in the car once you have arrived at your Woolacombe based holiday cottage home.
Just up the road from our beautiful three bedroom holiday cottage, Sunnycliffe is the small village of Mortehoe, which dates back to Norman times and is well worth the lovely walk along the Headland. The village is also home to some lovely places to eat. At the other end of the beach you come to Putsborough before the coast path rises up to Baggy Point and over the top to the nearby surfing village of Croyde. For a day out, visit the nearby Victorian town of Ilfracombe and enjoy the harbour, take a boat trip to Lundy Island or set sail and enjoy a days sea fishing with charters available daily from the town’s harbor before returning to your Woolacombe Holiday Cottage.
