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.

Woolacombe is a popular destination for holidaymakers, mainly thanks to the town’s stunning sandy beach which stretches on for an impressive three miles and is manned by lifeguards from Easter to September. More adventurous types may like to try their hand at a new water sport, such as kayaking, surfing or paddleboarding, lessons in which are all available at the beachside surf school. For those who fancy spending some time away from the beach, there is plenty to see and do in the area, including boat rides from Ilfracombe harbour and the nearby Exmoor National Park.

This second-floor property is accessed via an external wooden walkway, with a private entrance. Entering into the hallway, a door leads off from here to a shower room with shower and WC. Next there is a small double bedroom and then leading onto an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Relax on the comfortable seating after a busy day and take in the wonderful views across the Barricane Bay, or enjoy catching up on your favourite programme on the TV. The kitchen area is well-equipped ready for the cooks of the party, with an electric oven and hob, a microwave, fridge and freezer.

Heading outside, there is a communal garden area with seating making it the perfect place to enjoy al fresco dining. Here you overlook the beach and sea below, why not have a BBQ. There is parking for one car at the top of the property, access to the apartments is down steep steps.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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! Phil, the Property manager was 1st class... Hide

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
