Hiring a holiday cottage or other self catering accommodation in Woolacombe is the perfect family holiday or relaxing seaside break for couples and groups alike. Woolacombe is on the coast of North Devon in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The scenery is dramatic with a large golden sweep of sand that stretches for 3 miles, as well as cliff tops and sand dunes.

As a seaside holiday destination there are plenty of cottages to rent and other rental properties available in the area such as caravans and lodges. Staying in a cottage is ideal for families, especially those with young children, as it means little ones can easily have space to play inside if the good old English weather doesn’t lets you down. It also means its very easy to make packed lunches to take to the beach or on walks. As the restaurants in the evening in Woolacombe are limited especially in low season, then having self catering facilities to enable you to cook dinner is a must.

Woolacombe is a great beach for surfing and many people come from miles away to Woolacombe and nearby Croyde Bay to catch some waves. If you’ve never tried surfing before then the Woolacombe Surf School offers lessons for beginners as well as those wanting to perfect their technique.

If you stay in Woolacombe for more than a couple of days, it is likely you will want to explore the wider area. Woolacombe is very well placed for travel to Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and Combe Martin. Barnstaple is a reasonably large town in Devon, offering High Street shops and a faster pace of life. For pretty coastal towns, Ilfracombe and Combe Martin are lovely places to spend an afternoon, viewing the harbour in Ilfracombe and perhaps tasting a traditional Devon ice-cream or even cream tea in one of the tea shops.
