Having stayed before on Sunnyside Road we knew the location was great for Woolacombe and the elevated bay/sea views are lovely. The B&B we had stayed in previously had since shut down so I tracked down The Haven which was opposite.
We arrived into Woolacombe for the early May bank holiday weekend at around 10am and rang ahead to see if we could park at the B&B but were pleasantly surprised to find we could get into our room straight away. Ted warmly greeted us and showed us to the room on the ground floor. Although the decor is dated the room size was fantastic and had been set up for us as a family of three. A large room with a double and single, a room off this for sitting/dining with a TV and patio doors opening onto a private patio area with sea views and a family bathroom with large bath/over shower.
We were offered the option of breakfast in our room which was a nice touch but we opted for joining the other guests in the dining room. Parking on the drive outside the patio area was also offered which we took as we had lots of beach toys/coats we kept in the car.
Overall a great stay; the room worked really well for a family, the hosts were very friendly and accommodating and the beds comfortable. Breakfast was nice, the only slight negatives were unsmoked bacon and mushrooms on second day instead of beans - which disappointed my husband! Ted and Rita made us feel very welcome and when asked what her favourite part of the weekend was my daughter said meeting Ted!!
We would stay again.
