JCB + Sand + Beach Huts + Sri Lankan Curry = Woolacombe Summer Season!
Another glorious holiday season is just around the corner and all the signs are there for us to see. Watching the sandy bank for the beach huts being built and The National Trust fencing off the precious dunes brings home that we are about to start sharing Woolacombe with our lovely visitors once again. Barricane Beach Café staff are busy setting up for the fabulous Curry Nights, a real treat for those in the know. Holiday Home Hunter is looking forward to one of our busiest ever Spring Bank Holidays with only 3 places left to sell as of today! The village vibe is really warming up, something we notice so much more since being in our delightful premises in the heart of Woolacombe. So when you are next in Woolacombe come and check out our latest deals and offers and the super ‘newbies’ to the HHH portfolio. See you all soon : )
Easter bookings are cracking on! Only a few places left to sell now so get a wiggle on if you want to be here when the Mr Easter Bunny delivers the goodies! Woolacombe is starting to look like a good bet for Easter 2013 with lots of new additions to our holiday home portfolio and new shops and restaurants opening for the new season, the place is definitely buzzing. Being voted in the top 5 beaches in Europe and number 2 in the UK has only boosted the already enduring appeal of this beautiful seaside resort. People in the know won’t be surprised by that outcome and people who aren’t are now eager to come and see our most stunning attraction. So pack up the car with your loved ones and head for some quality time in our gorgeous resort. But don’t forget to leave a forwarding address to Mr Bunny!
The Boardwalk Bar and Restaurant in Woolacombe has recently been taken over by new owners and Holiday home Hunter are delighted to say that after sampling some delicious Sunday Roasts that this great venue comes highly recommended.

Just present your booking confirmation when you first go in and then sit back and enjoy the food, ambience and discount! To book your sea view table just call Adam on 01271 871115.
Looking for big places to stay in 2013?… then keep a close eye on the super Holiday Home Hunter website for exciting new large houses to accommodate large parties of people. We are constantly evolving our business here at HHH and have gradually acquired some lovely ‘big house’ alongside our delightful range of 1,2 and 3 beds! Our new brochure out soon, has a dedicated section for these splendid new properties and we will be taking bookings soon. ‘Thorpe’, the fantastic large house in Woolacombe with the sea view hot tub is available already and is attracting lots of attention. We look forward to welcoming back lovely ‘Marram’, again with a sea view hot tub and for the largest of families there is always The Burnsides, Lower, Upper and Higher, which combined can sleep up 22 and not forgetting the sea view hot tub!
Stumbled upon this delightful pied a terre on Woolacombe beach today, any offers? Perfect for those who prefer an uninterrupted sea view, small enough to feel cosy over the festive season and no near neighbours for those wishing to ‘party on’. Even comes complete with a cute little doggy for that Boxing Day walk along the sands!
For those who require slightly more space, then best check out the last few remaining places on the website and with that whopping 25% discount on any 7 night Christmas or New Year stay, you can still have an austerity Christmas!
If you are heading down to the lovely North Devon coast soon then you will be lucky enough to see the amazing Soulstress Beverley Knight when she switches on the Barnstaple Christmas Lights. All eyes (and ears) will be fixed on the Soul Diva when she turns on the lights in Barnstaple Square on the 22nd of November, to coincide with the first of the late night shopping nights. So don’t let it be ‘shoulda woulda coulda’! Call Holiday Home Hunter and let us find you a cool place to stay at a cool price. Short breaks are really good value as are weekly stays at this time of year. And while we’re talking diary dates, how about the Red Barn 14th annual beer festival on the 7th to the 9th of December? Acres of ales, copious ciders and lashings of live music. Rockabilly, punk wurzels and soulful ukuleles? Must be Woolacombe!
Any kind people out there reading our blogs will probably notice the gap between this one and the last one, quite big eh? Well the simple reason for that is…..WE’VE BEEN AWFULLY BUSY!!
We thought and hoped our new office in the centre of Woolacombe would prove a wise move and to be honest we have been bowled over! So many customers new, old and potential have dropped by and our new website has really taken off too!
Things are finally cooling down here and so at long last, a Blog. A busy August was followed by an equally busy September and we now find ourselves heading into a very autumnal October. With our last big week to come for the October half term it also seemed a good cue to remind people about the fantastic Bonfire Night celebrations that will take place on the 5th November in the Meadow. There will be a themed Bonfire, live music from the Roving Crows, 2 Bars, 2 BBQs and ultimately, Greg Webb and teams’ amazing firework display! If you fancy being part of this lovely village event why not add a few days onto your half term break? Or how about a long weekend taking in the 5th?It’s an event not to be missed and it seems to be getting more and more popular every year. Check out the special offers page for details of short breaks or call us to book. Don’t stay at home and be a damp squib, come to wonderful Wooly and make it go with a BANG!!
July the 8th saw the delightfully traditional Woolacombe Sandcastle Competition 2012 event on Woolacombe’s main beach. How quickly this seems to come round, year after year and how amazing that the contestants all seem to be so full of original ideas for their creations. This super event held annually in aid of North Devon Hospice is a true favourite in the local calendar!
Now for the ‘Seals’, how wonderful! Several seals have been spotted in the water around our lovely coastline in Woolacombe Bay and Porpoises were spotted off Barricane, reminding us all how beautifully natural our waters still are.
And finally ‘Sales’!! We are really pleased to announce our lovely property owners have in the main agreed to sell 2013 for 2012 prices for the foreseeable future. So, ‘if you snooze you lose’ seems to be the order of the day. HHH staff are ready to take your 2013 bookings or if you prefer you can also book completely online.
