Reassuring stays...

When you book a stay at the Beach Retreats, you can feel assured that we have carefully considered all aspects of the current pandemic. We've made stays at the Beach Retreats contactless, so you can check-in to your private home in Woolacombe with peace of mind.

Our team will keep you updated on any changes that may apply to your stay as government guidelines adapt over the coming months. Where possible, we are happy to help reschedule your stay to different dates, should you need to following travel restrictions or a local lockdown. Please feel assured: we are dedicated to ensuring you have the time and space to be at your happiest on the coast.


Your guide to staying with us...


Our beachside homes are open and ready to welcome you. Once again you can book your adventure to the North Devon coast, to feel the wind in your hair, the cool saltwater on your skin, the sand between your toes...our diaries are open and we are accepting new bookings.

Our lovely team are available by email:, and by phone from 9am - 5pm daily. We are a small team and we are currently working very hard to help everybody book; thank you for your patience and support during this unusual time.

We have created our own bespoke Beach Retreats roadmap - so we all know what to expect and our part to play. We want you to have complete confidence in our high standards of cleanliness and procedures when you stay with us. From booking your stay to leaving home, traveling to Woolacombe, arrival and departure, this is your guide. 

This roadmap is a checklist of sorts, for both you and us - so you know all about the steps we are taking. It's not exhaustive, but it's a very good place to start if you are planning a stay or have one booked.

  • What's included in my stay?
    We provide all bedding and bed linen, one bath towel per person, tea towels and a dishcloth. There is onsite parking for one vehicle per Beach Retreat.
  • How does check-in and check-out work?
    Your Beach Retreat will be available from 4pm on the day of arrival and check-out is by 9am on the day of departure. A member of our Reception Team will meet you at our main hotel gates and give you directions to finding your Beach Retreat.
  • Where are the Beach Retreats located?
    The Beach Retreats are located within the heart of Woolacombe village, about 300 yards away from the Woolacombe Bay Hotel. They are just a few minutes walk from the sands of Woolacombe Beach - the walk back from the beach is uphill, but isn’t too punishing. Click here for further location details...
  • Do we have to pay a deposit to book?

Of course, we ask all responsible owners to clean up after their dog and be mindful of others whilst staying in the Beach Retreats, click here to find out more about why dog's love Devon...
