Self-catering Holiday Cottages in Woolacombe

Holiday cottages in Woolacombe are popular among visitors who want to sunbathe, swim or surf at the village’s vast, sandy beach. Woolacombe is a laidback seaside resort on a rugged stretch of the North Devon coast, at the mouth of a deep valley, or ‘combe’. Located within the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is backed by rolling hills, farmland and woods.

The Southwest Coast Path runs past our luxury Woolacombe Bay cottages, crossing towering clifftops, west towards Croyde, Saunton and the Taw estuary, and east to Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Exmoor National Park. Some of the path’s most impressive stretches are near the village, with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, and the opportunity to spot passing dolphins and seals. Woolacombe Bay self-catering holidays are perfect for long days by the sea.

The beach is a beautiful sweep of golden sand, backed by grassy dunes. It is three miles long, with the majority of our Woolacombe holiday homes are located near the northern end of the shore. Exploring the bay, it is easy to see why it has won many awards and earned a reputation as one of Europe’s best-loved beaches. With exceptional surfing conditions, scenic walks, a huge expanse of sand, and a handful of great places to eat and drink, Woolacombe is the ultimate destination for a beach holiday in North Devon.

How to Make the Most of the Coast on a Self-Catering Woolacombe Beach Holidays

Woolacombe Bay is a three-mile stretch of golden sand, backed by grassy dunes and cliffs. At the northern end of the village, Barricane is a smaller beach with rockpools and an excellent café serving Sri Lankan food. At the southern end of the beach, Putsborough is a sheltered stretch of sand overlooked by towering cliffs. The seafront is a short walk or drive from Woolacombe Bay cottages, and there is parking on the Esplanade, which overlooks the beach, and in a number of car parks in the village. Just behind the beach, Funder Island is a fun, family attraction with a pirate-themed mini golf course and bumper cars. There is a tourist information centre for visitors seeking tips on how to make the most of Woolacombe Bay self-catering holidays. During the summer months, lifeguards maintain safety at the beach, where swimmers and surfers are separated by flags. Woolacombe is a multi-award-winning beach, thanks to its clean water and vast, unspoiled stretch of sandy shore. Letting holiday cottages in the area are particularly popular among visitors who want to spend most of their time on the beach, where there is always plenty of space for sunbathing, building sandcastles, and water sports. The South West Coast Path runs through the village, with spectacular views along the coast and across the ocean, toward Lundy Island. Many cottages near Woolacombe Beach have easy access to the path, which crosses towering cliffs and passes secluded, hidden coves. Further afield, the coast is scattered with ancient harbours such as Clovelly and Lynmouth, and charming seaside towns and villages, including Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, and Westward Ho!

Surfing Near Our Woolacombe Bay Apartments and Cottages

Thanks to its sandy shore, clean water and west-facing position, Woolacombe provides excellent, consistent conditions for surfers of all levels. With three miles of shore, there is plenty of room for everyone to catch a few waves, even in the middle of summer. Unlike many other surf spots on the North Devon coast, Woolacombe produces waves at all stages of the tide, although the quality may deteriorate slightly when the tide is at its highest. When the swell is large or the wind is strong, more manageable conditions can often be found at Putsborough, which is either a short drive or a walk along the shore from holiday cottages in Woolacombe bay Devon. There are a number of good surf shops and schools in the village for visitors who want to take lessons, or buy or rent boards and wetsuits.

There are a number of pubs and bars within walking distance of Woolacombe bay self-catering accommodation. The Red Barn is a local favourite, with a good selection of local ales, an impressive display of vintage surfboards, and a terrace with sea views. On Beach Road, Bar Electric is a popular spot for cocktails or a bite to eat, while Captain Jack’s is a cosy pub with a range of rums. For a night out on Woolacombe beach holidays, see what’s on at the village’s popular nightclub, Marisco. Woolacombe is also home to one of the region’s best fine dining restaurants, Noel Corston, where you can expect superb food prepared with fresh, local ingredients. The beach café at Putsborough provides refreshments for walkers completing the six-mile round trip from our Woolacombe holiday homes. A pair of historic pubs can be found in the village of Mortehoe, a short but steep walk uphill from Woolacombe. Mortehoe is also home to an excellent fish and chip shop.

The nearest supermarkets can be found in the neigbouring town of Ilfracombe, or the village of Braunton.

Croyde and Saunton are both a short drive away, with beautiful, sandy bays and great surfing conditions. There are a few lesser-known spots nearby, too, including secluded Rockham Beach, which must be reached on foot, either on the coast path or from Mortehoe. A little further east, Lee Bay is a rocky beach, backed by fields and woods, with a lovely pub, the Grampus. Many of North Devon’s best family attractions can be reached within a few miles of our luxury holiday cottages Woolacombe, including the much loved Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, home to wolves, lions and remarkable animatronic dinosaurs hidden in the woods. Nearby, Watermouth Castle is another popular family attraction with a theme park, toy train and gardens. The market town of Barnstaple is a short drive southward from Woolacombe, with a variety of shops. Head to Butchers Row or the Pannier Market for fresh produce and gifts.
