Can locals use the facilities?

If you live permanently in the local area, no further than Barnstaple from Woolacombe, then you are able to apply for a free Local Members card.

This will give you access to use our indoor swimming pools outside of school holidays, entry will be permitted provided there is available space - our holiday guests staying on our Parks will always take priority.

The cost to use the indoor pools is £2 for Golden Coast or Woolacombe Bay, and £4 for Twitchen House where the indoor waterslides are located. This is charged per person for adults, children and babies.

At no time is access permitted to any of our outdoor pools and there is strictly NO access to our indoor pools during ALL school & bank holiday periods.

To apply please click here to email your application and please allow 2 weeks for processing; we'll try to process applications as soon as possible but please be aware you won't be able to use the pools without a valid Local Members card and we cannot take applications by telephone.
