Sean's property is a great place to stay. There were 27 of us from our cricket club and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. He was a great host, who never got in way and left us to ourselves. 27 blokes could have been seen as problem but we are a cricket club, not a football club. As a result... More

Stayed here with a large group of friends. The hosts were friendly, the building accommodates up to 40 people we had a group of 30 people. This venue is in an excellent location only 12 mins short walk to the beach. Good places to eat around the area. The kitchen, dining and living room were large enough to accommodate for... More

Thank you for your review As with so many reviews they are only done after your stay has ended. When you asked for the heating to be put on it was, no one came to see us about it not working in any room. As far as the showers go we have looked into putting coin operated pumped hot water... More

Great location for surfers, backpackers and a weekend break, friendly staff who are local which is a bonus, can accommodate for large groups (34 in our group & self catering) which is good however some facilities need to be looked into eg showers which didnt work that well but thats something which can be easily sorted.

I think only smelly sods stay here, this would be have been a great place if only the showers were in working order. This place cannot accommodate large parties.my only gripe has been with the showers not working properly either cold water or no water at all. Between 30+ ppl and you have only 1 functioning shower really isnt really... More

I thank you for your review. When I was asked about the showers and hot water I walked round and tested each shower and they all worked as they should, to the point that when the shower was found working one of your group jumped in as I walked on to the next one. The house was built about 1911... More

Had a lovely stay at Northshore, it was quite quiet so I had a dorm to myself. Very welcoming and easy going owners who were very helpful. A lovely home away from home after a couple of long days walking the coastal path. Had to make a sudden trip home from Bude and Janine (one of the owners) incredibly kindly... More

Very comfortable and clean. Well equipped kitchen, no need to bring anything. Room very comfortable and clean toilet. Just give a negative, the bed is short for a person who is more than 180 cm. Perfect for groups of friends and couples Well it located. Easy parking for the car

Such a great place to be. Enjoyed it so much that I stayed for a second week. Travelling on my one I felt never lonely. Have met so great people. Very cozy home. Don't listen to the weather report. Just go. Sunny spot. And there is a lot going on. For everyone. For every age. Martina, Switzerland

I stayed here for 7 nights in one of the 4 bed dormitories whilst walking the South West Coast Path. The rooms are basic (as you would expect from a hostel) but clean and comfortable - I slept extremely well. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the facilities you would need to prepare anything from a simple breakfast... More
