Good location, welcoming owners, clean and a hearty breakfast - highly recommend for couples looking to stay in Woolacombe. The coastal walk to Morthoe is great and well worth the effort too. London, UK

Breakfast choices cater for all and it is good home cooking as well. This place is a... More

We were 4 golfers staying for a few days in June 2015. Steve and Shirley were very welcoming, and very helpful with a few of our questions. The smallish rooms were very clean, and probably more suited to couples, as we found the twin beds just a bit too close for friends. Its a shame that the bedside tables are... More

I stayed here with my family in June last year, we had 4 traveling together. The guesthouse is spotlessly clean, we stayed in the 2 garden rooms both had private bathrooms, one room has twin double beds and the other has 2 singles. The hosts Steve and Shirley cannot do enough for their guests, treated more like friends, the views... More

Just spent a wonderful weekend with the family in Woolacombe. The 'kids and Grandchild' were camping at Woolacombe camping park, but we decided to take the soft option and stay at Surf View the B & B next door. The gate at the end of the garden gave us access to the holiday park where we could enjoy the family... More

I got a text during the day saying that the room was ready and I didn't need to worry about waiting til 3. The room was very comfortable, good facilities and the... More
