Wavesurfer is our surfing simulator, it's your chance to ride the waves when the sea's not quite perfect. It's where you'll feel 60,000 gallons of water shoot by every minute, but try not to wipe out, everyone will be watching. It's totally radical, man.

It's unique to Golden Coast - and we don't just mean among our Parks, you won't find another one in the UK - and our instructors will teach you some cool tricks. There's even special kiddy sessions too so everyone can have a go!

Accommodation at Golden Coast

Golden Coast Holiday Park is at the head of a pretty valley and our wide range of self catering lodges, villas, bungalows and apartments are set in a mixture of flat and gently sloping landscaped gardens close to the Park's main facilities.

Our caravans and Cleavewood House are set on a hillside in a separate area of the Park and arranged in terraces, most with private parking, so access is through sloping terrain.

How do I get to Golden Coast?

By Car
If you have a Sat Nav the postcode is EX34 7HW

From Junction 27 of the M5 take the third exit on the left hand and follow the signs for the A361 to Barnstaple approximately 34 miles away. The views from this road are amazing, as there are hills and trees as far as the eye can see, with the odd scatter of houses dotted around the rural landscape. Be aware of speed cameras situated on these open stretches of roads. Approximately 10 and a half miles from J27 you will come to Stoodleigh Cross where for about 10 miles onwards on the left, stags are often seen. Continue along this road until you arrive at the South Molton roundabout housing "The Northgate Inn".

At this point there is a choice of routes. If it is not a busy time it is easier to drive through Barnstaple by going straight over this roundabout and continuing along the link road. However, if it is busy and you don't want to get stuck in traffic then turn right at this roundabout and follow the A399 to Combe Martin; please note that this route is not suitable for touring caravans.

- If You Choose the A399
Turn right at South Molton roundabout and carry along this road, this tends to become very bendy so beware of slow moving tractors. You will come to The Old Station Inn at Blackmoor Gate, continue straight past and follow the road. Approximately 39 miles from the M5 you will see the Bristol Channel at Combe Martin Bay. Along this road you will come across the turn off to your left, sign posted Woolacombe on the B3343. Follow this road for 4 miles until you reach a junction known as Berry Down Cross, Turn left here. Beware of the sharp bend but follow it around to the right. Continue until you reach the petrol station situated at Lynton Cross Junction. Travel straight across the junction and follow the road till approximately 47 miles from the M5 you will reach Mullacott Cross Roundabout. Proceed straight across and follow the signs for Woolacombe.

- If You Choose the A361 towards Barnstaple
Follow the link road for about 30 minutes until you see the town of Barnstaple in front of you. Turn left at the 1st roundabout towards Bideford (as it will be faster than travelling through the town centre) and proceed along the A361 and turn right at the 2nd roundabout signposted A361 Ilfracombe. After a mile or so continue straight through the 2 sets of traffic lights on the roundabout and over the Taw Bridge, turn left when you reach the dual carriage way following the A361 through the villages of Braunton and Knowle until you reach Mullacott Cross Roundabout.

At the roundabout take the first exit which is the B3343 to Woolacombe, after 2 miles you will come to a Y junction. For the Golden Coast Holiday Park follow the road around to the left and you will arrive at the Park on your left.

By Coach

What if I have special needs?

Our friendly and knowledgeable Reservations Advisors are here to help you find your perfect holiday, so please contact them on 0843 2080 377 before making your booking.

We are happy to advise on the accommodation which is most suitable for your needs. We have a Silver Lodge which has been specially adapted at Golden Coast for wheelchair users with assistance.

Most areas of the Park is fairly flat but the area where our caravans and Cleavewood House are located is hilly so you may not be able to get from one side to the other without the use of a car if you have limited mobility. Please check with us for further information regarding the Park terrain.

We try to make our facilities and entertainment venues as easily accessible as possible, however you may find steps in certain areas. Where this is the case we will always have an alternative door for convenient access. Our team on the Park will be more than happy to help in any way that they can.

What do I need to bring?

In your Holiday Home you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, with all the crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils you’re likely to need. But you will need to bring a few things along with you:

  • Tea towels
  • Towels
  • Toiletries
  • Toilet rolls
  • Matches
  • Washing up utensils
  • Cot linen, if you have hired a cot
  • Either pack your own bed linen or hire it in advance – linen is included in selected Holiday Homes, please check your confirmation
  • Your holiday confirmation

Why not pack your swimming costumes and towels in a separate bag so that if you arrive early before your Holiday Home is ready you can head straight for the pool?

Don’t worry if you forget something... we have convenience stores on all Parks with all the essentials you need for your holiday.
