In case you didn't already know, Woolacombe Beach in North Devon was recently rated as the second best beach in the UK and the fifth best in Europe - so why not book a night or two at the Ocean Backpackers Independent Youth Hostel in Ilfracombe and see what all the surfing fuss is about?
Because we are only a 15 minute drive away from Woolacombe, our hostel makes for an ideal homebase for those itching to ride the waves of one of the best beaches in England. We've had guests from all walks of life come and go - from students in university surf clubs, surfing experts and even first-time surfers, and no guest has left the hostel without a mention of how much fun they had hitting the waves at Woolacombe Beach. With easter coming up it's a great activity to try out with the kids. Check on-line for our family room and dorm availablilty!
