Anyone know of a cottage/caravan available for that week, for 2 adults, 2 children? Anything considered. Looking to pay under £400 though.
I've tried trawling the cottagey sites, but I find them EXTREMELY tedious and generally too expensive. It bugs me that you have to go into the details before you find out if its in your price bracket or not!
Can't help with an actual cottage but we used
Really reasonable prices and nice-looking accomodation.
We are in Porlock the same week, with another family (Honormatopoeia, who also posts here)!
Thanks, they look really good. AND the site is easy to use!
Look here... dh's family run it and it's in a beautiful spot.... close to the beach... lots of things to do around the area... fantastic place... well equipped! and just started to rent so it's all relatively new!... and at the right price! Good luck
Ciachmans Cottage Bideford
Thanks Bea, it looks really lovely, but DH isn't so keen, mainly because its on the wrong side of Barnstaple for Woolacombe... We haven't definitely ruled it out though.
MaryBS, have you checked availability for the static caravans ar North Morte Farm, in Mortehoe? That is is the pick of the campsites in the area IMO
Am assuming you have looked at and discounted the giant sites at Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parcs and also Ruda Bay in Croyde?
I keep checking the WB parks for offers, otherwise they are a min. £450. But I've checked North Morte and Ruda, and they've no availability for that week.
Hi, have you tried Marsdens Cottage Holidays (don't know website - based in Braunton) or John Fowler Holidays (in Combe Martin and Ilfracombe). I used to live in North Devon and am racking my brains thinking of somewhere - will have a think and get back.
Try www.mullacottpark.co.uk - prices look OK. The park is about 2 miles from Ilfracombe/3 miles from Woolacombe, and wouldn't be that expensive to get to and fro in a taxi from either, if you wanted a break from driving. The views from the site are beautiful too. Plus I know that the lodges and caravans are pretty knew (spent enough time behind them on windy Devon roads when they were being delivered!!)
Mullacott could be good Mary, although it is such a shame that local attraction Once Upon a Time has closed. We have spent many happy ours scoffing lollies and riding on the pedal snails
Still, there is always the monster truck nites in the field nearby (which I am told are quite a laugh )
The lodges at Mullacott look very nice from the road although I am thankful we never got stuck behind them
Thanks Marina, I looked at Mullacott, they looked quite reasonable.
What I've done though is phone Woolacombe bay and asked for a discount. Because we're going there later in the year, they're giving us a 15% discount, which brings it to under the £400, so we've decided to go for that.
Sassy, I was really tempted by those at Porlock, but what swung it in the end is my Dbro and his family are going down the same week and stopping at Woolacombe bay. So we'll be able to do things together!
No vacancies AT ALL at Ruda that week, though! I looked!
bum I knew there was none for camping (sob we wanted to go) but thought there might be in a caravan.
There's camping at Woolacombe bay. We're staying at the Golden Coast site (we like that one best!)
