Woolacombe is predominantly a family beach with good surf, lots of car park spaces and plenty of facilities both on the beach and in town. During the peak season there are two bathing areas, if conditions permit.

Woolacombe Sands is an award winning beach 7 miles from Smythen Farm Holiday Cottages, which boasts 3 miles of beautiful golden sand bordered by sand dunes.

The water is famous for surfing and windsurfing, but it is also great for children, with lifeguards ensuring safe family swimming during the peak season. At one end of the beach lies the resort of Woolacombe with beach hire, stores, fish and chip shops, restaurants, hotels and toilets, and at the other end is the village of Putsborough.

Smythen Farm offers fantastic value self catering holidays in North Devon. Situated just 10 minutes away from Woolacome Sands beach, Smythen Farm North Devon Holiday cottages offers the perfect location for families or couples looking for beach holidays in North Devon.

  • Wherever possible, swim at a lifeguarded beach. Find your nearest RNLI lifeguarded beach or search on goodbeachguide.co.uk or the Irish Water Safety website.
  • Always read and obey the safety signs, usually found at the entrance to the beach. These will help you avoid potential hazards on the beach and identify the safest areas for swimming.
  • When on a lifeguarded beach, find the red and yellow flags and always swim or bodyboard between them – this area is patrolled by lifeguards.
  • Never swim alone.
  • If you get into trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout for help.
  • If you see someone in difficulty, don't attempt a rescue. Tell a lifeguard, or, if you can't see a lifeguard, call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
