We're perched up on a hill above the bay so you can see the sea from almost every spot. And we've now had an epic makeover, our indoor pool is just wow. But if the beach is calling you, then we're the closest to it.
The beach is so close you might be forgiven if you think it's our main attraction. Over the past two years we've rebuilt or refurbished just about every venue on Park and added lots of new activities to keep you busy. Apart from two great heated pools and a luxury spa, you can take the action up a notch when you take on high adrenaline sports like Segways and zorbing. Just about every spot has a stunning sea view, that's why it's such a special place. And for something even more special, treat yourself to a stay in our new Surf Village... this prestigious development is our vision of the future.
The beach is just a stone's throw from our lofty location and you can walk down in just 15 minutes. But you might want to take our bus on the way back though, it's a little steep.

Accommodation at Woolacombe Bay
Woolacombe Bay Holiday Park is situated on the rolling hills overlooking the beach so most of our self catering caravan Holiday Homes have amazing sea views. Our apartments and farmhouse have fantastic views of the sandy bay, while our lodges with hot tubs and glamping pod are located in a secluded development.
Many of our caravans are set on the sloping hillside and so may not be suitable for guests with mobility difficulties.

How do I get to Woolacombe Bay Holiday Park & Spa?
If you have a Sat Nav the postcode is EX34 7AH
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 Woolacombe Bay Holiday Park take the right turn at the Y junction for Mortehoe, the Park is approximately one mile along this road on the left.

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 01271 872 377 before making your booking.
We are happy to advise on the accommodation which is most suitable for your needs. Part of the charm of this Park is it's stunning sea views from many of the caravans however, it does mean that the terrain is very hilly and we do not recommend this Park for guests with mobility problems.
Woolacombe Bay is a hilly Park 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 will find steps to access the indoor pool on the lower ground floor and restaurant on the first floor. Our team on the Park will be more than happy to help in any way that they can.
What Camping & Touring facilities does Woolacombe Bay have?
We are no longer offering Camping & Touring at Woolacombe Bay.
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
- Toilet rolls
- 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 our Holiday Homes when you book direct
- 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.
