Seafront location apartment, within the popular seaside town of Woolacombe, North Devon, with the town’s amenities, including shops, eateries and the large sandy beach all within walking distance.

This beautiful seaside apartment overlooks the crashing waves of Barricane Bay.

The apartment is built in an elevated bank of holiday villas, with a gorgeous front garden winding down to the seafront.

Dual aspect windows let that seaside light stream in, giving the room a tranquil atmosphere. Head through to the bedroom for a snuggly, nautical-themed double room with a neighbouring shower room. As soon as you're ready, simply pop outside to enjoy the fresh air in your communal garden with seating areas and BBQ.

Great place for exploring Woolacombe and the location for surfing couldnt be better. Small but really well equipped with everything you could need and spotlessly clean. The owner Phil made us feel so welcome and couldnt have been more helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Lovely little apartment with fantastic views. Small but well equipped. Added bonus of shared decking area with tables & chairs & sea views, room to store boards, rinse wet suits and hang out swim wear. The only negative are steps down from car and up from beach

The accommodation is more than adequately equipped for 2 people & is located across the road from Barricane Beach. Phil, the owner made us feel very welcome which contributed to our stay. Please note that the accommodation is accessed by steep steps,

I can highly recommend this property. Its location is perfect, around 5 minutes walk from the centre of Woolacombe. From our apartment (Shell Bay), you had a Fantastic view of the whole bay allowing you to watch the sun set over Lundy at the end of each day. You could leave the apartment and be at the waters edge in less then 2minutes for that earlRead morey morning dip or stroll along the sands. From the moment we arrived the vibe was total relaxation!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Shell Bay. The cottage was compact but had everything that we needed and was spotlessly clean. The apartment is ideally situated with stunning views and just a short stroll from the centre of Woolacombe. Phil, the owner, was very helpful and on hand when we arrived and available to sort out any slight issuesRead more. Hide
