What our customers say...

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

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.

We have enjoyed a wonderful week in Woolacombe - our boys preferred it to their main ( and considerably more expensive!) holiday in France this year! The apartment was simply lovely, you have thought it all out so well, everything was perfect. Big thanks, Nige, Annie, Tom, Greg, Matthew and Teddy xx

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.

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.
