Woolacombe campsites and holiday parks for trips surfing, strolling or simply slowing down

Close proximity to the beach – and the sought-after surf – is the biggest draw of settling down at one of these Woolacombe campsites and holiday parks. It is, after all, a well-known fact that this North Devon resort with its three-mile-long stretch of sand is mighty popular with wave-riding folk.

But you don’t need to know how to handle a surfboard to have a fine time here: gentler watersports like sailing and standup paddleboarding are also options, and there’s ample stuff to do on dry land as well, including tottering on the Tarka Trail and South West Coast Path.

Whether you want to spend days surfing, strolling or just slowing things down, have a gander at these Woolacombe campsites to find a spot to suit your holiday tastes and budget.

Which Woolacombe campsite should you choose?

The family parks are fab in Devon, and the tiddler-friendly choices in Woolacombe are no different. Look out for sites with splash-worthy swimming pools, entertaining evening shows and lively kids’ clubs to keep clans busy.

If you’re planning a romantic rendezvous with your significant other, get in their good books by opting for a seriously swanky glamping site in Woolacombe. There are luxurious parks with cosy bell tents including real beds and microlodges that come with private hot tubs.

Caravan sites near Woolacombe with fully kitted-out accommodation are also top options if you don’t fancy packing (or putting up) the tent.

Many campsites in Devon don’t allow single-sex crews for fear of rowdiness, so if you’re weekending with lots of friends, filter for holiday parks in Woolacombe that welcome groups.

If you’re simply wanting a spot on a field at a farm on your Woolacombe camping trip, there are those too a couple of miles from the beach among acres of gorgeous greenery with views worthy of swooning over in the distance.

Some of the best campsites in Devon are in this top town, so browse the listings for award-winning options that will turn a last-minute weekend away into an outstanding one.

Woolacombe’s attractions and activities

Aside from the surfing, the scenery – and the strolls to be had among it – are Woolacombe’s main lures. Wander from Mortehoe to the Morte Point headland to eye up basking seals and swooping kestrels in this Site of Specific Scientific Interest or roam around the Bull Point peninsula towards Rockham bay for a bit of rockpooling.

Another lesser-known cove to seek out is Bennett's Mouth: bumble over here to rove between rock formations in strange shapes. The Torrs Walk in Ilfracombe, created in the Victorian era, is also worth a wander for the cracking coastal views. 

If you’d rather trot atop a beast of burden than totter on your own two feet, Woolacombe is home to a handful of horse riding stables offering lessons. Here for the waves and nothing else? When the swell’s not playing ball, you might very well be convinced to stray from the sea for an hour or so to swing by the Museum of British Surfing in Braunton.

In the evenings, there’s a strong après-surf scene for such a small settlement, with pubs and even a nightclub – the longest-running in England, in fact – to pull up a pew at (or boogie till the early hours). 

And how about some grub to line the stomach ahead of those drinks? Woolacombe has a few restaurants and pubs serving up locally-sourced fare, as well as a fish shop if you’d rather order a bag of freshly cooked chips to eat alfresco by the water with a view of the Bristol Channel.

Fancy a change of scenery…? See what the campsites and holiday parks in Ilfracombe, a 10-minute drive up the coast, have in store for you.
