Autumn holidays in Woolacombe

When it comes to popular UK staycation destinations Woolacombe outshines most of the competition. During the summer months the bustling North Devon surf town really comes to life with no end of family holiday activities. As we move into autumn, naturally the number of visitors the area attracts begin to drop off. With this comes a great opportunity to enjoy the area with the added benefit of more space, as well as less time waiting in queues and traffic. Here we look at what make autumn holidays in Woolacombe, North Devon a top choice.

Away from the crowds

If you're travelling to Woolacombe for a holiday either during peak season or in quieter times, Willingcott Valley is the perfect retreat. At just two miles from Woolacombe beach, guests at Willingcott have the luxury of a self-catering and self-contained cottage to themselves for their break. With plenty of outdoor space for the kids to play freely and individual picnic benches to dine al fresco. Therefore, keeping family and friends in one bubble is made much easier. With high standards of cleaning and fresh linen provided, guests get both quality and safety in their stay at Willingcott Valley.

Spacious beaches

We’re not exaggerating when we say that Woolacombe Beach is massive! The 3 miles (4.8 kilometres) of long wide open golden sands, mean that social distancing is not an issue. The second largest bay in Britain gives you a good idea of the scale of the beach. Plenty of room to stretch out and make the most of the last of the summer surf!

Indian summer weather

Of course we can’t promise the weather will always be perfect outside peak season. However, there’s a good chance the Indian summer style weather can last right into September, and even October. Woolacombe and the nearby North Devon beaches provide a perfect spot to catch that dreamy evening sunset.
