If you must cancel your holiday due to: -
- Serious injury, illness, death, jury service, maternity or redundancy to any member of your party named on your booking form and this can be fully substantiated and has arisen since you made the booking, then you are no longer liable for the balance of your booking.

Woolacombe Sands Holiday Park is sited in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where we have a duty to ensure the park is kept in as natural state as possible. Please note some roads do not have tarmac due to restrictions and may be uneven. Please take care when on site and be mindful that some areas will become slippery when wet or uneven.
Woolacombe Sands Holiday Park is on the side of a Valley and therefore a terraced site to ensure stunning countryside and beach views are maximised. If you have a disability or mobility issues, please contact us prior to your stay so that we can accommodate any special needs or requests.
Our wheelchair accessible caravans are on Avenue 2 which has access to the main facilities excluding the play park.
51. WANEY EDGE COTTAGES
Please note our Waney Edge Holiday cottages are 6 detached bungalows approximately 500 yards off the main site. There is a countryside footpath that connects the cottages to the main site. Please note that this path is on grass and uneven surfaces that may become slippery when wet.
Mobile phone reception is limited at the Waney Edge Cottages. Some cottages have no mobile reception (dependant on the provider).
Wi-Fi is not accessible when staying in the Waney Edge Cottages.
If you have an issue before your stay, please email [email protected] for the attention of the Manager.
In the event of any complaints or dissatisfaction with any matters under our control during your stay (including cleanliness, missing items, broken items or site location), please report them immediately to the main reception desk (or the clubhouse manager if the reception is closed), so that we have the opportunity to rectify any problems or issues at the time. If the main clubhouse is closed, emergency contact telephone numbers (which are operated 24/7) are on the clubhouse door (these do change nightly).
Any non-emergency maintenance issues reported after 8pm, will be rectified at 8am the following morning.
Any claims made outside of your holiday period that we have not been made aware of will not incur any liability on our part.
If you felt the reported matter was not dealt with to your satisfaction during your stay and wish to contact us, please do so within 7 days of returning home from your holiday, For the Attention of the Manager. We will respond to all written correspondence within 28 days of receipt.
