Things to Do on Your Stag and Hen Do in Woolacombe Bay

Woolacombe Bay Hotel



Plan a totally different party

Woolacombe Bay has something for everyone, and it is a popular spot for brides and grooms who want to celebrate in style before the big day.
Woolacombe Bay Hotel regularly welcomes groups large and small, but what exactly is there to do at the hotel and in the area? Here are some of the best ideas for brides and grooms to be in and around Woolacombe Bay.

Alchemist Spa
Relax in the Spa

What better way can there be to relax and unwind before your wedding day than by experiencing a full spa treatment?
The Alchemist Spa is the place to go to experience some serious pampering. We offer spa days at the hotel as one-off packages or as part of your weekend experience, and you can even choose an overnight spa break.
A pamper party is lots of fun, and you will enjoy full access to all the facilities of the Thermal Spa including the sauna, jacuzzi and pool, as well as the facilities at SALT Gymnasia. We’ll even provide you with unlimited hot drinks and pastries.
We offer natural vegan-friendly treatments for both brides and grooms to be. Our treatments are gender-neutral, so this isn’t just something for the girls.

Salt Gymnasia
Try a Pre-Wedding Workout

Fancy fitting a workout into your stag or hen plans? We can help you out there! Our very own SALT Gymnasia is the perfect place to fit in a fitness session.
You can book a group training session with one of our professional trainers who can host groups of up to a maximum of four people. This could be the perfect way to learn some new techniques (or freshen up after a night of celebrating!)

Woolacombe Bay restaurant
Experience Fine Dining

Doyle's Restaurant is the place to enjoy fine dining in a relaxing environment, so indulge yourself. It has been awarded 2AA Rosettes for its culinary excellence, so you know you’re in for something special when you book your table.
Or you could opt for the Bay Brasserie, where you will find delicious bistro-style food along with fine wines and a great cocktail menu. Private dining spaces are also available for groups.
Perhaps you’d like to enjoy an afternoon tea as part of your hen night? This can be the perfect way to relax and indulge during your weekend of fun.

Neo cinema at Woolacombe Bay
Enjoy a Private Movie Screening

Our guests love Neo Cinema, our very own cinema right here in the hotel that is new for 2019. You can see all the latest blockbusters here, which makes for a popular after-dinner activity.
The cinema seats up to 30 people on comfy sofas and armchairs, and you can book it out for your event and enjoy a screening of your favourite film. Extras are also available like theme nights and a G&T table service.

Morte Point
Enjoy a Bracing Coastal Walk

After a fun-packed night in Woolacombe Bay, you might be in need of some fresh air. Fortunately, you’re in the perfect spot. The Woolacombe Bay Hotel is surrounded by spectacular scenery and stunning coastal walks both long and short, so you could go for a fresh morning walk or enjoy a whole-day trek.
Discover the best of Devon’s rugged countryside by walking around Morte Point, a short walk that packs in lots of beautiful scenery. Another enjoyable walk takes you to Bennett’s Mouth, a beautiful and secluded spot where you can enjoy nature at its finest.
There are plenty of walks in the area, so just ask at the hotel when you arrive and we’ll provide you with a few options.

Surfing at Woolacombe Bay
Go Surfing

One thing Devon is famous for is its surfing, and Woolacombe Beach is the perfect spot to either take your first lesson or master your moves. There are actually four beaches here, and you’ll also find lots of surf schools where you can book lessons for any level.
The main beach is three miles long and has been awarded a Blue Flag. Lifeguards are also present in the summer, making it a safe place to learn to surf. Or head to Barricane Beach, a more secluded spot where you can often find big waves.
You could even head out to Croyde Bay a bit further afield. This is one of the best beaches for surfing in the UK, but it’s more suitable for advanced surfers.
We can store your boards for you, or we can help you arrange coaching and equipment hire, so just let us know what you need.
