“Very friendly site”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Myself and three teenagers recently stayed at Woolacombe Sands on a 5 day Sun Holiday. After staying at other sites in Woolacombe we were very impressed with this small friendly site. Nothing was too much trouble for the reception or shop staff.
We were allocated a caravan with a fabulous sea view which was far more interesting than the television! The caravan was spotlessly clean and the mattresses and pillows were comfortable (an issue I have had with other sites).
The walk into Woolacombe was an easy stroll along a lovely country path and the riding stables next door were very convenient for wonderful hack out over the headland.
We needed a light bulb changing whilst we were there and this was seen to within the hour.
I can't wait to go back to Woolacombe Sands and can not recommend it enough. Thank you!

We visited Woolacombe Sands for the first time as part of The Sun promotion. We were a little sceptical beforehand, not knowing what to expect but I can honestly say it completely exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay and would definitely go back. The views from our caravan were outstanding, the staff were extremely friendly and efficient and the level of cleanliness was second to none. When we had a minor problem with our central heating, it was rectified without delay. I was completely blown away by how super efficient the staff were throughout our stay - constantly running round ensuring everything was just perfect. As for the entertainers (Geoff, Faye, Kayleigh and Poppy), they were fantastic!!!! I was super impressed at the transition they made between children's daytime entertainers to night time performers. It was clear to see how hard they all work and how they go the extra mile to ensure a 'good time' is had by all. Geoff was great - a genuinely nice guy who seemed to make time for everyone. We were so impressed with Woolacombe Sands that we're even considering a return stay later on in the year. I would definitely recommend it. One of the best, (if not the best) caravan parks I've stayed at. Thank you so much for making our holiday memorable!

My mum and I Just returned from a four night stay at Woolacombe Sands

Receptionist on arrival was very friendly and also staff in shop during our stay.

The chalet we were given was home from home. It was well decorated and really clean. The two bedrooms were good sizes, each with wardrobes and drawers. We had a full working kitchen with everything required and also a dishwasher. Iron and ironing board. Full sized bath with shower. Decked area outside front door with seating. Amazing views. And site is well kept and so clean.

Short walk down to beach, not a bad walk there or back as long as you don't forget to go up the correct path or can be quite hilly, as we found out :o)

Cannot comment on entertainment as we wore ourselves out each day from walking and hiking we weren't able to go out at night.

Ideal location as many places to visit are within driving distance. Clovelly is really worth a visit, make sure you put on shoes that have good grip. Built on a very steep hill.

Was impressed with the Woolacombe Fryer (Fish and Chip shop) and also Sandleigh Tea Rooms, Croyde (Amazing cream teas).

If you like walking, Croyde is a nice but long walk from Woolacombe across the beach or on the coastal path, also helps to walk off them fish & chips and cream teas.

Had a lovely time and would recommend.

Room Tip: The chalets are amazing, but the caravans looked lovely too. The way all the caravans and chalets ar...

Arrived on friday afternoon earlier than planned and the room was all ready for us to get unpacked and enjoy our day. The only issue throughout the holiday was a little hair stuck to the shower head when we arrived but the staff were more than happy to address the situation.

The size of the caravan was just right and the price was even better!

The facilities are just what you expect for a Holiday Park, kept nice and tidy throughout!

The walk to the village centre isn't to far which makes it easy for us to get to the beach :)

Room Tip: Worth the extra amount to upgrade to Silver or even Gold if you feel like splurging!

Just returned from a four day stay. This was my fourth year! Each stay had always been excellent !!!
Arrived at 11 and the kind receptionist let us book in early ( lucky for us the caravan was ready).
The caravan was brand new and lovely and clean .
Entertainment on the evening was brilliant especially if you have young children ! Even if you don't have children the evening entertainment is suitable for all.
You have a short walk to the beach and the town !
Woolacombe sands also has a indoor and heated outdoor pool!
There is also slot machines and pool tables!
Really enjoyed my stay and the staff were lovely !
Overall : excellent.
Be back next year!!!!!!
