“Stunning cottage that felt like home”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I stayed here with my parents, brother in law and sister and twin nephews for 2 weeks in August.

I did not want to leave when we had to go home after the holiday! The house is comfortable, light and homely with a lovely feel and decor. The views from top of the garden and lounge and front bedrooms are absolutely stunning and mum and I became addicted to taking photos of the beach and then sunsets.

Woolacombe itself is clean and welcoming.

I miss the house, woolacombe and Devon and can't wait to return again someday.

“Great Woolacombe base”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

House worked v well for 3 generations for a great holiday. There is a steep hill down (and back!) to the beach but well worth it.
The garden is also on a v steep slope so only the very top is useable but there is a nice terrace outside the kitchen door for sunny lunches.
House is very well equipped and v comfortable.

Good to hear you enjoyed your stay with Ocean Cottages. Unfortunately it is because of the hill that you get such beautiful views! Hilly is the nature of Woolacombe but I am sure you agree it is well worth it. Thank you for choosing Ocean Cottages, we hope to see you again in the future

“Cosy Bungalow”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We went as a family of 5 , Mixed ages from 10-74 years old, all our needs where catered for and the bungalow itself was extremely homely and comfortably for our long weekend stay

The view are amazing

the only down side was the smell and visual sights of damp in the bungalow
and second bedroom , the mattress could do with changing as when it gets hot there is a strong smell from it

Apart from that I would Stay Again

“Fantastic Beach, "Surfing" and Walking holiday”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

A lovely property with views over Woolacomb bay and a great base to explore the North Devon coast. You're within walking distance to town & the beach (Great waves!) and dont need the car if your earting / drinking out on the evening. Good size patio / garden for barbequing and some usefull stuff in the gaurage to borrow for the beach.

There is lots to explore on this coast but to me the highlights really are the location where we enjoyed a coastal walk to Croyd with lunch at the Thatch and a surf bus back. Surf lessons and general body boarding were fanantastic and a post beach pint on the terrace of the Tides Inn finished off most days.

“Fantastic Views and Great Location.”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed at this property in the school summer holidays with my wife and 2 young children and we had a fantastic time. The house feels very private and is very light and airy as well as being comfortably equipped. The beach is a pleasant 10 minute walk from the house, past the shops, cafes and bars, and avoids the need for using the car parks. The outstanding feature of this house is undoubtedly the amazing view of the beach and the sea from the lounge and bedrooms in the house. The view from the large private garden is even more impressive and is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sun set!
