Welcome to the official website of the Woolacombe & Mortehoe Tourist Information Centre

We love welcoming visitors to Woolacombe & Mortehoe, however in these extenuating circumstances we are asking that you do not visit us at this time.

Our hospital, medical centres and shops are struggling to keep up with local demand and additional visitors will have a massive impact on this, and will undoubtedly speed up the spread of this awful virus. Please follow Government advice and stay at home … the sooner we stop all unnecessary travel, the sooner we can get back to welcoming you to our beautiful corner of North Devon

If you have already booked a holiday here in the coming few weeks, please contact your holiday provider and ask about postponing your stay to a later date. (Please bear with them though as many businesses are inundated with enquiries, and will be trying to prioritise bookings in date order).

We wish you all well and look forward to seeing you all in when this is over…. stay well.
