Have stayed here a couple of times now. Nice clean rooms, some with fantastic sea views. Welcoming hosts. Excellent breakfast, good selection of cooked and other options. 10 minute walk to sea front, 2 minute walk to pony trekking.

We stayed for a few days last week and had a wonderful time. Steve and Shirley are warm, welcoming hosts who made us feel at home in their delightful B&B. The rooms were very comfortable, immaculately clean and included many thoughtful little touches. Breakfasts were superb! Surf View is ideally located with easy access to Woolacombe and its fabulous beach... More

We had a week at the surf view for a family holiday and we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. Steve and Shirley are absolute gems and nothing is too much trouble, be it drying our towels off or giving advice on where to go and which road to take. We stayed in a family room which... More

The fridge in the room was an unexpected bonus. Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice and lovely views of the coast from the conservatory. Steve told us how to walk... More

Surf View Guest house really deserves the 5 star rating every ones gives it. It is in a lovely location with a short pretty stroll into Woolacombe and the house itself is impeccably clean and nicely dressed. Our hosts were really lovely with nothing being too much trouble. We also thought it was incredibly good value for high season. We... More

This was our second visit to Surf View and it was just as amazing as our first visit last year! Our room was very bright and airy and spotless, and the table and chairs outside the room was very useful for sitting in the sun and watching the waves at Woolacombe Bay. Nothing was too much trouble for Shirley and... More

We stayed here in a family room whilst attending a wedding. The room was very clean with everything required for a comfortable stay. Absolutely perfect hosts who treated everyone of their guests as individuals. Breakfasts were fantastic every morning, and nothing was too much trouble. Definitely returning !

We stayed for two nights last weekend with our daughter and two-year-old grandson. We were made to feel very welcome by Steve and Shirley, who are wonderful hosts. The views across the fields to the sea, which is just a short walk away, are really impressive. The rooms are comfortable, well-appointed, and extremely clean and tidy. The breakfast was also...
