The popular North Devon village resort holds the accolade of number 1 beach in the UK in the TripAdvisor awards as well as an England for Excellence award as a family resort.
The all-terrain Tramper scooter available for hire from the Woolacombe Tourist Information Centre now means that you enjoy exploring the coast and accessing the beach whatever your mobility.
Two routes are currently on offer:
- A coastal route follows the popular South West Coast Path through the sand dunes of Woolacombe Warren providing sweeping views of the coastline, headlands and across to Lundy Island.
- A second short route provides access on to the beach so that families and friends can enjoy the sand and surf together. (NB The Tramper is designed for accessing the firm sand on the beach but not for travelling significant distances along the beach or to go in the water).
- It is hoped that an additional route leading up the valley to the north of Woolacombe, and offering spectaular views, will be added in 2017.
A recommended donation of £5 is invited for a 2 hour session and advance booking is strongly recommended - and essential for first-time users.
Call 01271 870553 to make a booking. Note that for safety reasons all users must be accompanied. Due to the larger, robust design of the Tramper scooter it is not suitable for exploring the village itself.
The hire facility has been made possible through partnership with National Trust North Devon and Woolacombe Tourist Information Centre. Many thanks for their support and commitment to improving accessibility in and around Woolacombe. Enjoy this fantastic coastal site!
