    We have had a fantastic week there, using it as a base to walk a stretch of the SWCP. It was great to come back to Glenwood after a day hiking, and sit on the window seat and look at the awesome view of the beach and Baggy Point. So close to all amenities and the beach, which was perfect for our tired legs! Neighbours helpful and friendly too. I would be very happy to stay here again!

  • "Many thanks to the owners for such a lovely holiday apartment."

    It's perfectly located for a family beach holiday or exploring North Devon. The apartment was exceptionally clean (which always makes me so happy and sets the right mood for the rest of the holiday from the start), we loved the décor and the paintings and the wide window sill in the sitting equipped for looking out at the sea - it is a huge bonus, especially if the weather is not kind. The kitchen was very modern and perfectly equipped with all you need to cook - just like at home if not better. The notice board in the kitchen with all the information about best places to eat and other handy tips about local shops and places was very useful, as well as a special book for guests to leave their notes on good local eateries. The apartment has lots of DVDs, CDs and games in case it's rainy and maps and books/brochures with information to explore the area. I would definitely recommend this apartment to even the pickiest of my friends. A huge thanks!

The property

A well-presented, traditional, second floor apartment situated in the centre of the town of Woolacombe, North Devon.

A lovely seaside base for families and friends wishing to enjoy time together in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

The flat is reached via an external staircase leading to a communal entrance door, shared with one other flat.

The spacious sitting room provides a sociable living space with sea views, plenty of light and an inviting window seat, a sunny spot to sit and gaze out to sea.

The king-size double bedroom with TV and the twin bedroom share a bathroom and completing the accommodation is a fitted kitchen.

The apartment feels warm and welcoming with a hallway for boots and coats, and has the benefit of an allocated parking space.

The award-winning beach and village shops are just a short walk from this lovely apartment where you will find excellent surfing.

Woolacombe holds the ‘England for Excellence Gold Award’ for best family resort and was voted the Best British Beach in the Mail On Sunday for its cleanliness, water quality and facilities.

It is popular with families, as it is life guarded, and surfers, for the magnificent waves.

Apart from beach life, the apartment is a short drive from picturesque Lynton and Lynmouth and the railway.

Alternatively, take a trip to Lundy Island, or escape to the peace of Exmoor where you will find plenty of pretty villages with welcoming pubs.

A wonderful holiday property.
