From the sea off Combesgate beach

 

Combesgate beach is a pretty secluded beach located at the far right-end side of Woolacombe offering some attractive rock pools - ideal for children. It is the first true sandy beach as you walk down from Mortehoe to Woolacombe along the coastal road.

Combesgate is one of the Marine Conservation Society recommended beaches,. Flat golden sands, rocks to either side, a gentle waterfall to the rear, hidden in a little cut out.

The best time to visit is between low and mid-tide, when activities can include swimming, surfing, building sandcastles and exploring the rock pools. Be aware that access to the beach itself is via a number of steep, but well maintained, steps. Combesgate is probably not be the best option for families with push chairs or those with mobility in mind.

 


Great Campsite with Picturesque views
This is a very friendly, well run, very tidy caravan site. The staff were very accommodating, and the shower block facilities were as good as any you would find in a top hotel. Absolutely breath taking views, with plenty to do and see. Easy to get to the coastal walks and footpaths.

Great campsite
This is a great site. Staff very helpful, even helped us recycle our tent after the rain got the better of it. Good well stocked shop, beaches with walkable distance and nice Sunday carveries in Mortehoe Will return soon, hopefully in a lovely new caravan.
