How to spend a long weekend at Woolacombe

Planning a long weekend in beautiful North Devon? Here’s an idea of the amazing things you could get up to on your visit.

1. Check out the beach

Once you're settled into our accommodation it’s time to explore your surroundings, and what better way to start than Britain's best beach. This beautiful three-mile stretch of sand is the perfect place to kick off your weekend getaway and is within walking distance from all three of our holiday parks. The beach has endless fun activities for everyone, but first why not start by getting ice cream from the many kiosks on the beach and watching the surfers. Once you finish soaking up the view the beach has endless exciting activities. You could go for a thrill in the theme park located right on the seafront. Or, with the beach having some of the best waves in the country, you could go for a swim or surf in the sea.
