Tiki statue

Welcome to our tropical hideaway, you lucky people you!

Hey! All you kooks & hodads, there’s a new Big Kahuna Tiki in town and he’s keeping an eye on what y’all getting up to down in the Barn. Behave now, no dropping in, or you’ll be cursed!
Thanks go to Neil for the hand carved and painted wooden tiki; custom orders taken. WTF!

Local surf roots

The Red Barn has been home to Woolacombe’s surfers since the sport washed up on North Devon’s shores. Back at the start of the sixties the Surf Life Saving Club formed on Woolacombe Beach, shortly followed by the professional lifeguard service, and with The Red Barn’s proximity to the beach we became an unofficial club house and meeting point for those involved.

The local and visiting surf scene found a welcome home in The Red Barn that carries on to this day. Check out the collection of classic surfboards we have on display in the rafters, most were either made or surfed by local surfing ‘legends’ here at Woolacombe!

The Red Barn is a sponsor of the Museum of British Surfing.
