Much of the Hotel has been lovingly restored from the mid 1800's, creating it's unique and tranquil atmosphere. High ceilings, chandeliers and comfortable, quiet lounges are a testament to that ...More era, and where first class modern amenities are required, they have been skilfully incorporated into the existing Woolacombe accommodation. We place high value on our staff. Trained to be attentive yet unobtrusive and to provide the kind of personal service that is so often hard to find. Less

Hi, we try to keep The Bay Lido open as long as possible depending on the Great British weather! Usually we stop heating the outdoor pool around mid-late September. While not 100% accurate, I hope this information helps!
