I’m on a fabulous break at Woolecombe Bay in Devon. We are at Twitchen House which is one of the 4 parks that make up Woolecombe bay.
We booked this way back in August, 9 months ago. Initially it was a £48 deposit. £9.50 per person. We booked it via the Sun Holiday deals that they run a few times a year.
I was very happy to be able to get Woolecombe as it’s a very popular site, also after having a quick look on their website the true cost of this holiday would be more like £430 so we’ve saved over £300. This trip in total cost us less than £80. That’s just under £20 per head for a family of 5. To stay in a 2 bedroom caravan for 3 nights. Bargain. There are extras thst you can pay for but we just added the £30 for gas and electric which we had to pay. Obviously.
Of all the places we’ve stayed at via the Sun Holiday deals (and we’ve been doing them for over 5 years) I think this is my favourite. The facilities seem to be up to date and modern and lots to choose from.
We paid £5.00 each for a bus ticket that we could use for the durarion of our stay. It goes to and from Woolecoombe beach stopping at all the other sites inbetween. Woolecombe beach was voted Britain’s best beach in 2015 and 2016 and it’s easy to see why. It’s huge so even on a busy day you don’t feel like a sardine packed in with other people all around you. The views are breath takingly beautiful.
Shops and reastuarants are a short walk away and the obligatory fish and chips are available from a kiosk on the beach.
There were no loud funfairs just kids playing ball games and with a good old fashioned bucket and spade.
Our kids were entertained most of the time with the outdoor (heated) pool and play area at Twitchen House.
I love Devon especially the North. So if you are struggling and have never considered a Sun Holiday do it.
There is so much stuff to do here too much to cram into a weekend so we will definately be coming back.
Our party consisted of 2 adults. 3 children aged 14,11 and 7 and we’ve all had a wonderful time.
