Cottages near UK's best beach

For two years’ running, Woolacombe has been named as UK’s best beach by TripAdvisor users. Once again, it has kept its number one position in the top 25 beaches category of the recent TripAdvisor 2016 Travellers Choice Awards (February 2016).

North Devon is renowned for its spectacular coastline, its rugged cliffs, beautiful sandy beaches, all surrounded by glorious unspoilt countryside.

What’s not to love about this three mile stretch of golden sand that lies between Mortehoe and Baggy Point. Its great waves attract surfers, body boarders and swimmers. Beach lovers and families enjoy sunbathing, sandcastle building, family beach games, rock pool exploring and paddling in the sea. Dogs are also welcome on the beach all year round (although there are some restrictions during peak seasons). 

The local cafes, restaurants, shops and pubs of Woolacombe village are all nearby.

And of course, don’t forget ‘Putsborough Sands’, it’s the same great beach but at the other end! There is plenty of parking, a great café and shop, plus this end of the beach is often a lot quieter than the top end of Woolacombe. It’s definitely worth a visit!

Fancy a beach holiday in North Devon? We have some great holiday cottages available in Woolacombe, many with amazing sea views, close to the beach and village PLUS we also have some great holiday apartments close to the beach at Putsborough.

So come and enjoy Woolacombe beach this year. Don’t miss out and book today.
