The village has a permanent population of approximately 1,000 people, but that more than doubles in holiday times.
Woodgate Beach has been untouched by commercialism. There are only a couple of small shops to buy essentials, but that is it. It is a perfect place to stay if you want an old-fashioned, family fun holiday.
It is a great spot to take your dogs as well, as two-thirds of holiday properties are pet-friendly. There are two leash free areas at each end of the beach where your dogs can run for miles and explore the shallow water at low tide.
Great spot for you fur babies too
The most popular holiday homes and units are on the Esplanade, where you can step out your front door, cross the road and walk straight onto the beach.
If you prefer to walk on solid ground, then there is a lovely paved path that meanders its way along the esplanade under the shade of the sheoak trees. The path is great for bikes and scooters as well.
