CONGRATULATIONS TO WOOLACOMBE PARKS

4 August 2015

Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks is crowned 'Britain's Best Park' in 2015

Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks in Devon is delighted to announce that its Golden Coast Holiday Village has been voted by the public as the nation's best holiday park of 2015.
The Park has been awarded this much-coveted prize in a recent Great British Park Off competition - organised by Towergate Insurance - for its exceptional customer reviews, unique facilities - including the 'Wavesurfer' surfing simulator - quality accommodation and all-round family-friendly appeal.

Said sales and marketing director, Kevin Darvill: "2015 cannot get much better than this for Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks. We are thrilled and proud to have received Britain's Best Holiday Park Award which, coupled with the TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Awards naming Woolacombe as the UK's best beach earlier in the year, really is the 'icing on the cake."

"He added, we have beaten off some really tough competition and are delighted that so many of our guests enjoy what we offer and took the time to vote for us."

More than 150 holiday parks up and down the country were judged against criteria which included outstanding customer feedback, choice and quality of on-site facilities, its appeal for all ages and what made this particular holiday park stand out. The entrants were whittled down to a final short list of three, before the public voted for their favourite, with Golden Coast Holiday Village receiving 37% of the total votes overall.

Why Choose North Devon.


The county of Devon is one place but within its boundaries there are different worlds. South Devon went down the tourist route many years ago and as a result is now served by big roads, big venues and bright lights. If that’s what you’re looking for then that’s the place to go. North Devon is a different world. Although we are a popular tourist destination we have not gone for all the razzmatazz that implies. Our roads were built for the horse drawn carriage. Our houses built for families and our entertainment and shopping facilities still reflect this.

Come here to relax and enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.
Don’t rush, take your time and enjoy our slightly slower pace of life. As you work through this site you will find many fascinating places that are well worth the effort to explore. You will find places to eat that still give value for money combined with some of the best food in the UK. Commercial fishing is still part of the way of life and as a result fresh fish is available in many of our quality restaurants. Agricultural is also part of our lives and the produce from this is also available.


Don’t be afraid to talk to the locals, we love to chat and you won’t find a better source of information on where to go or what to do.

Don’t get me wrong, we do have the modern shopping centre's and the big out of town superstores; we also have family owned and run businesses that have been in the same family for decades. We still have the traditional pannier markets (the name comes from the panniers that were carried by horse or donkey to bring the goods to market). We have outdoor markets and tiny shops down secluded streets.


To put this another way we have so much for you to explore. A day trip could sto visit and are still here. It is an area that is so easy to fall in love with.I do this site  because I love the place and want to share it with as many as possible. I don’t do it for profit. It’s my hobby or should I say, my way of life. Now I will let you go to explore the rest of this site. If you have any questions I will be very happy to answer them for you. Just click on one of the e mail links that are on most of the pages and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Include a phone number and I will give you a ring. You can also ring me on 01271 831296 (UK)tart you on a totally different way of life. There are many residents who came here

A LITTLE BIT FROM THE PAST

Adder found on Fremington Field, it's a big one!

A DOGWALKER wants to warn others after coming across a large adder while taking her pet for a stroll in Fremington.

Barnstaple woman Laura Kelly sent this picture to the Journal of a female adder by the entrance to Griggs Field.

Journal wildlife correspondent, the naturalist and vet Tom Williams, said the adder was a large one and most likely pregnant. He advised caution when walking dogs on warm summer mornings on the moors.

Laura said: "I took my spaniel Max for a walk, and on our way back the snake was by the entrance. I took my dog home and then put a post on Facebook to warn other people, as it was so close to the gate.
