What our customers say...

Brilliant stay in the beach apartments, penthouse. Perfect location, brilliant service with a smile and really good furnishings. So happy about this place we have booked the views apartment for this spring bank holiday! Thanks to Tom and Nicki for a great welcome, and for returning my surf shorts when i left them there!

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.

Hawkins and Eccles - Bath, England

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.

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.

Jack Foster - Warwick, England

Wow it most certainly is. What a find ! The apartment was even better than expected with fabulous views and central location. Lovely extra touches - better than a 5 star hotel. Didnt want to come home. Cant wait to go back.

Laurie and Colin - Old Basing, UK

We spent our 10 year wedding Anniversary in Southover Beach Apartment. Thanks to Tom and Nicki for the decorations, balloons, Buffett, the bubbly and the lovely Gluten Free cake. We had a lovely meal at The Tides Inn with two very special people. Tom and Nicki thanks for been such wonderful hosts and that's why we keep coming back. Visitors and the residents in and around Woolacombe are so friendly.The weather was excellent, apartment is 5 *S. We had lunch at Captain Jacks restaurant, they also provide a gluten free pizza. The staff in both restaurants are just brilliant. See you in the new year. M and M.

Fab apartments, clean, warm and very well equipped. Great location for the beach. Tom very friendly and helpful when booking. It's the little things that count. Thank once again .... same time, same place next year.

Karen Swann - Llanidloes, Wales

Fab location, beautiful, clean, well furnished appartment, plus amazing views. The added extra of a bottle of wine was well appreciated after a long drive!! Looking forward to the next visit. Our three boys said it was better than our foreign holidays in the past.
