We (myself, hubby + three children aged 4,3 and 9 months) have just returned from a week long stay at Woolacombe Sands and what a fantastic time we had!
We stayed in an incredibly well equipped, newly decorated, two bedroom Sands chalet, complete with dishwasher, full sized bath with shower over and a lovely outside seating area from which to admire the sea view.
The site itself is beautifully situated, overlooking Woolly bay and is within driving distance of a large number of local attractions. It is an easy walk, even for those with young children, through fields and greenery down to the beach which was close enough for hubby to walk to for a morning surf (a vital element of our holidays).
There is a well stocked shop (with lovely friendly staff), a clean and fairly warm swimming pool, arcades, pool tables, bowling alley and outside play area. There is also a soft play room for small children situated directly off the bar/entertainment area which is fantastic because you can keep a constant eye on the children without having to hover right by them.
The entertainment staff (Kayleigh, Poppy, Faye and Geoff) are all fabulous. However, a special mention has to go to Geoff, who has to be the most genuinely enthusiastic entertainer I have ever met. He has a natural talent for entertaining children. Our children, the four year old in particular, adored him (there were tears when we came to leave). The evening entertainment was also really good. For children this included a bubble man, lots of fun games and of course Woolly Bear and for the later 'cabaret' entertainment; a magician and a couple of really good singers.
All of the staff at the site, from reception to maintenance staff are very friendly, always a ready smile and an hello.
All in all, a fantastic, relaxing holiday. So good in fact that we have already booked for later this year and Easter next year! So, thank you to everyone at Woolly Sands - see you again soon!
