Woolacombe Holiday Cottages
Woolacombe is renowned for its three miles of golden sandy beaches and incredible surf. The pristine and expansive beach has won multiple awards, most notably being voted "Number 6 in Europe and Number 20 in the World in the 2020 Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice Awards". UK surfers flock from all over the country to enjoy the fantastic waves and the village has established itself as the heart of North Devon's beach culture. Woolacombe offers a friendly, welcoming and lively community that perfectly caters for the needs of visitors.
Aside from popular large beach there are also many smaller, more hidden beaches such as Barricane (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and Combesgate. These beaches offer the perfect escape for people looking to while away the hours hunting in rockpools and collecting seashells.
Woolacombe beach is easily accessed from the village by foot. Our luxury high-end cottages take advantage of the short distance to the beach and the spectacular views over the bay. Whether it's a cottage or penthouse apartment, we provide the perfect base for you to explore the surrounding North Devon countryside and soft sandy beach.
