in Woolacombe

If escaping the everyday and setting up home by the beach is your idea of bliss, how does three miles of uninterrupted golden sands sound? Woolacombe has long been one of the most beautiful UK holiday destinations, and with good reason.

We offer self-catering accommodation in North Devon, with two options to choose from: The Beach Retreats and The Bay Lodge Suites. Both offer dog-friendly accommodation. Stays in the Bay Lodge Suites include access to hotel facilities.

If you are looking for a coastal home for your stay, they are the only self-catering accommodation you’ll find in Woolacombe with a heated swimming pool, free parking and outdoor space. A short stroll from the hotel and Woolacombe beach, they are perfect for families and groups. They comfortably sleep 4-6, in 2 bedrooms.

Access to the Mini Lido (heated in summer months)
Free beachside parking (for 1 car)

Mini Lido

With its sun-bleached decking and comfy loungers, the Mini Lido is at the heart of the Beach Retreat village. Exclusively reserved for guests staying in the Beach Retreats, the pool is heated from June – September.

Dog-friendly stays

We are happy to say that the Beach Retreats offer dog-friendly breaks in Woolacombe all year round.

With their epic coastal location, the Beach Retreats are paws down one of the best dog-friendly places to stay in Devon.
