What our customers say...

Had an excellent few days, the apartment is fantastic. Will definitely try and come back someday and will recommend you to family and friends !

Teresa and Brendan - London and Limerick

Superb, 5 star accommodation. Great location. Didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back! Thanks for a brilliant few days.

Laurie and Colin - Old Basing, UK

Stayed in apartment 7 over the spring bank holiday week. Fantastic 5* apartment, fitted out to a very high spec, fabulous balcony area overlooking lovely gardens. The facilities were great, with the shower and steam rooms just what you need after a day on the beach body boarding. Also, secure surf/body board storage a great touch. Literally 2 mins walk to the beach, so it's also in the perfect location. Will definitely be returning, and highly recommend to anyone else looking for beautiful accomodation in woolacombe.

Andy Perkis - Halifax, England

Brilliant stay at the excellent Garden apartment - all very clean, comfortable and extremely well-equipped. Tom was really helpful and we loved the chocolates and wine that greeted us! Would not hesitate to return or recommend.

Gill Webber - Surrey, UK

Beautiful location and in easy access to the beach. As a party of 8,we stayed in Southover beach apartment which was just perfect for our mid-week break in February.The apartment was well equipped with everything you should need and plenty of space! We can't recommend staying here highly enough, excellent communication with Tom before and during our stay, and the small touches of chocolate and wine were an unexpected treat. We were all very sad to leave.

Luxurious accommodation, magnificent views, wonderful ambience. 'Southover' provides the best that Woolacombe has to offer. Many thank's to Tom and Nicki for being such lovely hosts, we,too, will be back.

Stayed in apartments 2 and 3 as we had a wheelchair user.Beautiful views of beach and accommodation exceptionally clean and comfortable. Tom and his wife went out of their way help and we hope to book again for next year.

Diana Allen/Lockwood - London, UK

We have stayed at Southover Beach Apartments many times in the last two years, and I have to say they are by far the Self Catering apartment of choice in Woolacombe. We have stayed in at least two of the apartments ('Garden' - nice open plan, but only apart. with no sea views, and 'Honeymoon' - fantastic upstairs/downstairs style with a spiral staircase). The front patios/balconies give unrivalled views along the beach to Putsbrough and Baggy Point - what better way to start the day looking down the beach whilst still in bed. The Steam Room is awesome after a days surfing/swimmimg, and the overal decor and layout of the accommodation is just stunning. The couple who run Southover are extremely friendly and willing to either give as much advice and help as you wish, or respect your privacy if you do not! Last time we stayed, we arrived late, and as Food is hard to come by in Woolacombe after 9pm, they even offered us some much needed supplies to see us through until the morning (not including the bottle of wine greeting us on arrival!). So popular is this accommodation, we tried to book to come down in September out of season, and can't get in! If anyone has any doubts about staying in this accommodation, then rest assured, you will not find a better mix of luxury, location and comfort in Woolacombe, or Devon or even the South West for that matter.

Toby Tomlinson - Goring-on-Thames

Stayed in Apartment 7 last August, with my 8 year old son and Boxer dog. Everything about it was truly amazing,from the power shower, to the large balcony over looking the gardens. Have booked again this year, can't wait. Helen, Will and Eva.
