Woolacombe sits on the rugged North Devon coast and amidst the surrounding National Trust land, and is an extremely popular and well known village throughout the UK primarily due to its stunning golden sand beach. Many visitors flock to the area throughout the year but especially through the summer months. The village has an array of facilities which include small independent shops, a selection of cafes, bars and restaurants to suit all pockets and tastes, a medical centre, pharmacy and a primary school which has an 'outstanding' rating from Ofsted. As well as the 2½ miles of golden sand that stretch across to Putsborough, there are Barricane and Combesgate beaches which have rock pools to explore and the former having a beachside kiosk selling delicious Sri Lankan curries through the summer season. There is also Grunta beach which is a smaller and quieter private cove. The surrounding National Trust land and the South West Coastal Footpath provides miles and miles of walking to enjoy some of the finest coastal scenery on offer. There are a variety of leisure facilities and excellent nearby golf courses with the best known being the two links courses at Saunton, one of which is at championship standard. The Exmoor National Park is also just a short drive away.
