We've had many a holiday there over the last ten years, i love the beach there, we always go to the market there....it's great, my Aunt lives in Barnstaple so we go down there every year to see her and we always have to go to Woolacombe, and of course the kids love to pop to Illfracombe for a boat trip :)

My cousin Beat used to live at Eastaway cottage Mortehoe and the view were spectacular [evening though their roof blew off once in a storm]. Jean.

I love it all round there, can't think of the name of it now but there's a beautiful little village not far from there that's all the old thatched cottages, I'd love to live there one day :)

As I've said Beats cottage was in the middle of the caravan park and the lighthouse. What a view will try and find some photo's out. Bye. Jean.

Hi,
I've probably got a hundred photos of Woolacombe and area dating from 1970's onwards, but I'll post one of them. I'd got my ice cream before the tide came further in ! The van number plate probably dates it.
Cheers

I remember 4/5 years ago on that beach, noone realised how strong the sun was and my mom ended up with really bad sunburn on her legs and had to go to Hospital, she couldn't do anything for the rest of the holiday lol

In 1963 no one told us about not sitting in the sun, it was always nice to go home with that nice glowing feeling.
this pic of my wife & I in the dunes at woolacombe laping up the sun, three week of wall to wall sunshine.
The other pic is our car parked on Marine Drive over looking the Dunes & Beach you can see Woolacombe in the back ground (at the time this road to no were was free parking,now it used as an official car park, £5.00/Day)

Where in New Oscott Mossy. I worked at Wyndley for 18 years. Maybe you came in for a swim sometime. I used to take the school children for their swimming lessons. Maybe I taught yours. TTFN. Jean.
