    The views from the balconies were to die for and even had a couple of sunsets. Very comfortable and well equipped, I thought the bed was a bit hard on first getting in, but slept like a log it was so comfortable. Communication was great and we had a message early to say it was ready so even better! Westward Ho! is lovely with lots of places to eat. Highly recommend the Rock Pool café for breakfast, lovely friendly staff too. The Pig and Olive do amazing pizzas too! Had a brilliant time and will hopefully be back x

    Literally sitting on your own balcony, yards away from the sea, could not ask for better. Everything you could want on your doorstep, what’s not to like?. We were sad to go home, we had such a great time. Many thanks to the Sally and Robert, who must have sat for absolute hours thinking of obscure items that guests might want, well done, and thank you again. Regards Sandy & Joan Laird.

  • "Wow! What an amazing apartment."

    Fabulous location overlooking the sea and steps away from lovely restaurants, cafes and shops. Sitting out on one of the three balconies listening to the sea was just glorious. The Lookout was probably the best apartment we have ever stayed in. It was absolutely spotless and the owners have thought of everything. We didn’t cook as there were too many restaurants to try but the kitchen was fully equipped with plenty of everything. Cleaning supplies, dishwasher tablets etc and the milk and biscuits left were much appreciated after arriving late after a very long journey. Beautiful bedding and an abundance of towels. I really can’t fault it- it was perfect! Thank you to the lovely owners - great communication and we could tell how much the property is loved and cared for. We really didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to come back .

    Spacious and well appointed, the property had a warm and welcoming feel. Our only concern was that there were no stairgates but we appreciate that these would detract from the fabulous aesthetic. We made the most of the position, getting down to the sea, if sometimes only for a paddle, every day. Our son thinks all homes should have that view

    We had booked for last Christmas but due to lockdown were unable to go, so have been waiting 18 months to stay, and well worth the wait!! We stayed for a week over the Christmas period. The actual property is beautiful. It's location is perfect with pub's and restaurants literally next door! The views from the lounge and bedroom were glorious across the sea. The owners are really kind and friendly and had left us a card and bottle of wine, which was a lovely touch. I cannot recommend a stay here enough. It was spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed - plus some! We really didn't want to leave! We will be staying again.

    Ideal Location Lovely Place The Stairs Are A Bit Much By Day 2 The Hot Water System Realy Does Need Looking At The Lady Already Knows Because On Second Day ( SAT ) Morning I Rang Her And She Came With Straight Away She Knew What To Do Straight Away She Said If It Happens Again Wait Until Boiler Cools Down And Press Reset Button On Boiler After The 4th Day If You Shower Early And Get In First Your Laughing The Others Then Wait There Turn

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We have discussed this with the owners of The Lookout and their response is as follows: We are sorry our guests had a problem with the flow of hot water during their stay. The property has a gas combi-boiler, it is checked & tested (heating & hot water) at every changeover to ensure it is in working order and this was the case before our guests arrived. We include water & heating in our information sheet with the advice that the hot tap/s should be turned on slowly to start, to allow the 'flow' to come up to temperature, the flow can then be increased. As responsible owners, the boiler is regularly serviced and a laminated copy of the operating instructions is in the boiler cupboard. We have made ourselves familiar with any faults that can be cleared by us i.e. water pressure. There is an electric shower in the second bathroom which operates independently of the boiler system. It would be helpful if we could be made aware of any problems, as they arise or as soon as possible, to allow, if necessary, a repair to be organised. We are pleased to hear that you were happy with the place and location. Property Owner

  • "Floor to ceiling windows allowed stunning views of the sea."

    However there was no option of screening in the lounge making it virtually impossible to watch television in the late afternoon/early evening sunshine. There are no opening windows so doors had to be left open which is harder to control. The internet was dire and could not support a zoom chat. Had the weather been bad this would have been frustrating. We would recommend the property despite the above. It was smart and well-equipped. The weather was glorious and we spent hours watching the waves.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear you enjoyed The Lookout and you have been able to enjoy the lovely weather and amazing views. The Lookout does have a unique design and the floor-to-ceiling windows are a key point of it. Due to the particular architecture the owners have to follow a uniform look on the inside so they had to opt for venetian blinds for some windows and some with no covering. The television in the lounge can be rotated to help with the glare and the one in the bedroom does have venetian blinds on the windows and direct light can be masked. The owners are already looking into a system that can hold the doors open for an optimal ventilation and will install it as soon as possible. For the Wi-Fi the owner is in contact the the internet provider but North Devon is usually serviced with a basic internet. They are already improving several areas with better infrastructure and new cabling to allow super fast internet but it is a process that requires time. We hope you will visit The Lookout again in the future and will enjoy more of North Devon. Property Owner

The property

Located in the seaside town of Westward Ho!, looking out to the shore-front is this stunning light-filled duplex apartment, The Lookout, with uninterrupted views of the sea.

Suited to a small family looking for the perfect seaside adventure, or a pair of couples needing the ultimate ocean retreat, this wonderful holiday home will fit the bill.

The open-plan living space makes the most of the beautiful views to the sea with floor-to-ceiling windows, you'll have a hard time concentrating on watching the TV sat on the smart sofa and lounge chair arrangement when this incredible vista lies in front of you.

The balcony is benefited by a table and chairs where you can enjoy a spot of lunch in between activities, carefully prepared in the well-equipped kitchen space, which includes all of your holiday essentials such as a dishwasher, electric oven and gas hobs.

To the back is a dining table and chairs, as well as a breakfast bar, so in the evenings the whole family can sit around the table together to eat or play a board game, and in the mornings you can sit at the breakfast bar with a much-needed coffee.

Another balcony to the back overlooking the car park means you are guaranteed the sun all day long if you decide to have a day of staying in the apartment.

When it's time to head to sleep, move to the first floor where the bedrooms lie; a twin room is complete with two single beds and a travel cot available on request for a little one, served by the shower room next door which is also home to the washer/dryer.

Down the hall is the double room which affords you your own private balcony facing the sea, once again with floor-to-ceiling windows, so you can roll over in the morning and face the ocean.

An en-suite bathroom is attached to this light and airy bedroom, including a bath with shower over.

The whole property encompasses the theme of the sea with blue, sand, and cream hues used throughout, echoing the shores below.

Westward Ho! is famous for its two-mile wide stretch of beach, very popular with surfers and swimmers, with a surf academy on the beach if you are new to the sport and want to give it a try.

There are a range of eateries and shops, a golf course, and even a go-kart track for some family competition!

Take a trip over to Barnstaple, within easy driving distance, for the largest town in North Devon home to the Museum of North Devon for some local history, or explore the Tarka Trail, a series of footpaths and cycle paths that follow the route in Henry Williamson's book "Tarka the Otter".

The Lookout will be a delight to stay in, waking up to sea views and having the beach on your doorstep where you can make wonderful everlasting memories with your loved ones.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
