We're perched up on a hill above the bay, the name's the clue that you really can see the sea from almost every spot. A truly epic backdrop to all the family fun on Park. But if the beach is calling you, then we're the closest to it.
So if you ever dream of waking up with the beach on your doorstep, then here you're so close to England's best beach you might be forgiven if you think it's the only attraction. It's just a stone's throw from our lofty location and you can walk down in just 15 minutes. Of course it's not just about the huge sandy bay, there's so much to do at this lively Park having the ocean so close seems almost unfair.

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.

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.
