Indoor pools for water activities at Woolacombe

We don’t let the fear of a rainy day put us off from making the most of our holidays in Woolacombe. Open all season from 8am to 6pm - extended to 8pm on school holidays and weekends in term time, Twitchen House and Woolacombe Bay have incredible indoor swimming and water activities facilities for the whole family.

Pool sessions are pre-bookable, lasting for 60 minutes (including changing time!) - choose between family fun pool sessions or the more sedate daily swimming sessions if the water features aren’t quite what you're looking for.

Twitchen House Holiday Park indoor pool

The indoor heated pool at Twitchen House called Jungle Falls Fun Pool is home to two epic water slides on a scale not found at any other holiday park in Devon and Cornwall. The Duo Tunnel Slide Ride comes in at 72 metres (236 feet) with special lighting effects. Ride it alone or as an adult and child; perfect for smaller kids who don't want to miss out on all the fun. The Aquatube Speed Slide boasts a 67 metre (220 feet) rapid race to the bottom in a narrower tube for a single rider, with tight turns of spiralling awesomeness on one of the fastest, wettest rides you'll find anywhere.

You’ll also find a designated toddler pool with a mushroom fountain, bubble jets and squirting characters for their first little splashes.
