The waffles are prepared right in front of you, and the toppings are plentiful. They serve ice cream too!

Attractions

Sights and things to do

The beach is indeed Woolacombe's claim to fame, so make the most of the white sand, underwater sealife and brilliant turquoise waters. Surfers are known to enjoy the swell at Woolacombe, while novices are advised to start at Bideford Bay coast. While seasoned surfers master the swells at Woolacombe, landlubbers can always trace the scenic coastal paths with a trusty camera. There are plenty of coffee shops along the way for a much-needed refuel. Keep your eyes peeled for Peregrine falcons, and gorse flowers used by locals to make gorse wine (it tastes just like coconuts).

Take a walk through the old town and indulge in classic fudge treats available in local shops. The town has a bohemian vibe with its interesting shops, cafes and tourism memorabilia. The 3-mile-long beach is home to the International Sandcastle competition that draws visitors from across Britain. Imagine 10m x 10m sculptures creatively crafted from Devon's soft sand. Lifeguards are always close at hand surveying the waters, which is great news for families. A Woolacombe vacation rental is a good idea when traveling with children.

Local Attractions

Excursions galore

Rent a car and head down to Woolacombe's upstart neighbor, Croyde. Alternatively, you can walk along the coast but make sure you're well-equipped with sun cream, sun glasses and plenty of water. Baggy Point and Morte point are good spots for porpoise, seal, dolphin and shark sightings. Plan a day trip to the National Trust Headlands, perfect for long countryside walks. Morte Poine is an exciting headland marked by its wild heather and gorgeous vistas. Drive down to the 18-mile, narrow-gauge of Lynton & Barnstaple Railway, which was opened in 1898 in Parracombe. Fancy riding a wild horse along the coast? Consider Woolacombe Riding Stables, which offers horses approved by the British Horse Society and Pony Club. All rides are escorted. For some more history, visit the Mortehoe Museum, a treasure trove of local shipwrecks.

Why not explore North Devon's stunning coastline with the Ilfracombe Sea Safari? Towering cliffs, dolphins, porpoises, marine and bird life, woody bays and photo opportunities await. Experience Exmoor coast, Combe Martin Bay, Heddons Mouth, Woody Bay, Baggy Point and Lundy islands, all quintessential to the Devon coastal experience. Bull Point meanwhile has its own morbid history of shipwrecks, where men shone lights to attract ships that would smash on the rocks. The ship's booty was then promptly looted. For more smuggling stories, visit Bennett’s Mouth and its shaded woodlands and toad spawns. End the day at your comfortable Woolacombe vacation rental and share all you have discovered with the family.

Woolacombe dates back to the Stone Age and has held on tightly to its savage charm in the face of rampant modernisation. Book your Woolacombe vacation rental and experience all this and more for yourself.
