If you'd like to know how to find us, this is your guide. If you'd like some inspiration for once you've found us, visit our guidebook. It's full of secret places to satisfy your wanderlust. Restaurants, wild rambles, sandy adventures and shops can all be found on foot.



The Beach Retreats are located in the centre of Woolacombe village, just a short stroll from the sandy Woolacombe Beach. The walk back from the beach is slightly up-hill, but isn’t too punishing.

Once you arrive in Woolacombe, drive along South Street, turning left at the children’s playground. Our self-catering Beach Retreats are ahead and signalled with our beautiful beach hut display. 
The first retreats you will see are the Beach Retreat Flats. These are in small duplex blocks facing West, with the parking centrally located. 

To reach the Beach Retreat Apartments, simply carry on a few yards, and you will reach a second parking area. From here you will be able to see the Mini Lido and the apartments that surround it in a horseshoe shape. There is further parking behind the apartments.
