    The apartment is high spec and very spacious, with very large window width offering fantastic relaxing views across Golden Bay.

  • "We have stayed in Lobster Pot for the last few years now and it never disappoints."

    Stunning views, always extremely clean and well equipped. We would highly recommend Lobster Pot. Also you have the beach on your doorstep and shops and restaurants. You never have to move the car.

  • "We have stayed here before, and will again."

    It is perfect for our needs. Love to sit and watch the sea. Even in January there are plenty of eateries and food shops open in easy walking distance and the bus stop is really close too with bus to Bideford, Barnstaple and Ilfracombe. A great place to stay.

  • "A superb apartment, overlooking "the green" and the beach."

    My husband, myself and my 98 year old Mother spent a fabulous week here. There are absolutely no negatives it must be one of the best holiday lets ever. Cleanliness, comfort, range and quality of equipment provided, and views are all second to none. We were even serenaded by a saxophonist playing on the green each evening. Sykes were very professional advising me that as a first floor property we would be reliant on the lift, this proved no problem, it is specifically designed for the less able guest and very reliable. Once inside the apartment it is extremally spacious wheelchairs or walking frames can easily be maneuvered. Thank you to both Sykes and the owners for a great holiday to remember.
