The Woolacombe Bay Hotel is in one of the most enviable positions in England. Overlooking one of the finest beaches in Europe and set between two National Trust headlands, the hotel boasts 64 glorious bedrooms, six acres of landscaped grounds, and direct access to three miles of beautiful, golden sands.

The hotel has been lovingly restored from the mid 1800’s, so life at the Woolacombe Bay combines the timeless elegance of days gone by, with all of the special touches that you would expect from a luxury four star hotel. Exploring rock pools, building sandcastles or learning to surf – there are few better places than this hotel to enjoy precious time with friends or loved ones. Exmoor is right on the doorstep, where gentle, rolling hills combined with picturesque pubs, shops and quiet churches lie hidden deep in the countryside just beyond Woolacombe village.

Once you have settled in to your classic room, sea view or luxury suite, you can do a little or as much as you please. At the front of the hotel is The Bay Lido - a beautiful sanctuary for couples, families, and the young at heart. Exclusive to hotel residents, this area incorporates a large outdoor pool, a selection of comfy loungers and a unique fire pit to warm you as the evenings draw in. Inside the hotel is the Haven Spa, where you can enjoy the finest Elemis treatments, a dip in the indoor pool or Jacuzzi, or you time in the steam room or sauna.

For the more active there are two squash courts, tennis courts, pool, table tennis and snooker, as well as pitch and putt on the front lawns of the hotel. There are two restaurants to choose from – the relaxed, understated Bay Brasserie and the magnificent surroundings and opulence of Doyles. The superb kitchens work their magic using fresh, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients to produce exquisite and unusual dishes for you to enjoy. Coupled with this the hotel has an extensive wine list with wines from around the globe to accompany your meal. If it is indulgence you are after, sit on our terrace, enjoy the view of the sea, and tuck into one of the delightful Devonshire cream teas.

If you are looking for a spectacular wedding venue, then you have found the right place. The Woolacombe Bay Hotel is one of the few venues in the UK where you can exchange your wedding vows with stunning views of the Atlantic in the background. With a dedicated wedding planner, a list of recommended suppliers and three rooms to choose from for your big day, the team will ensure that your guests are accommodated in total comfort, and that your special day is a seamless celebration of the start of your married lives together.

If you are planning a private party, meeting or conference, you will know how important it is to find the right venue. The Woolacombe Bay Hotel is set aside from the rest – literally. With a helicopter pad on the front lawn there is no need to drive, and we will put together a package that meets your bespoke requirements. For adults wishing to get away from it all, a babysitting service is available, and for couples wanting a romantic trip away, the Woolacombe Bay Hotel has it all…
