There is so much to see and do when staying in Woolacombe. The village’s three-mile long golden beach has been voted twice in recent years as the number one beach in the UK by Tripadvisor, as well as holding the England for Excellence Gold Award for best family resort. The village itself is a hive of activity with a great range of places to eat, and things to do. During the day Woolacombe has a laid-back family friendly atmosphere, which at night turns into a livelier venue with open bars and live music.
Many people think Woolacombe is just about the beach, however there are plenty of other things to do no matter what the weather. At Twitchen House and Woolacombe Bay there is a cinema showing a variety of films, as well as The Art Shed, where you can paint your own pottery. At Woolacombe Bay Holiday Park outside visitors are more than welcome to visit the Wave Ceramic Studio, which is open daily, as well as the Woolacombe Wave and Golden Ten Pin Bowling. Another place to pop into is The Craft Hut, which also does decorating of pottery and is open in the main holiday season.
If you are looking to venture further afield the pretty harbour town of Ilfracombe is just a short drive away, as our several of North Devon’s quaint villages such as Georgeham, Croyde and Lee Bay. All these places have lovely restaurants and tea rooms, as well as some great shops for picking up souvenirs. A larger array of shops can be found in the market town of Barnstaple. Exmoor National Park is also within easy reach of Woolacombe and is a wonderful place to spend a day either walking or admiring the wildlife, make sure you combine your visit with a traditional cream tea in one of the cosy tea rooms, such as Mother Meldrums in the Valley of the Rocks.
