Really enjoyed our stay at Surf View. Owners are warm and friendly and have a good local knowledge so can recommend great places to eat. The sunsets were lovely from the patio and it was only a short stroll across the fields to the beach. Woolacoombe riding stables is a 5 min walk away and caters for all abilities. Thanks...

I have just returned from my third stay at Surf View this year. As in the past I received a friendly welcome, the house was clean and fresh, the room was excellent and the breakfast menu so comprehensive it is hard to choose what to have. The garden is very pleasant to sit in with views of the bay and...

Steve & Shirley were most welcoming, friendly, most helpful, and also most kind during our 7 night stay. Our first visit to Woolacombe so difficult to compare B&Bs, but this has got to be the best for all the reasons already mentioned in other reviews, but especially: immaculately clean & quiet room, super-silent fridge, relaxing piping hot water "rain shower",...

Superb setting and views , lovely accommodation , breakfast and hosts . Easy walk to village centre along the valley. Will definitely stay here again next time we visit Woolacombe . You need to book in advance as it is very popular with repeat guests and it also has two spacious family chalet style rooms. Plenty of onsite parking
