Woolacombe, Devon, England
Kittiwake One is a one bedroom self-catering apartment located on a private lane overlooking Woolacombe Bay. From the property's hilltop location, which commands a view across miles of North Devon coastline, Woolacombe beach is a 10 minute walk downhill. The return journey depends on how fit you're feeling, although there is a bus service which drops off 100 yards from the front door!

The location is quiet and peaceful, yet only fifteen minutes from the main facilities of larger towns such as Ilfracombe and Braunton. The apartment enjoys easy access to all amenities, including several centres for outdoor activities such as climbing and horse riding. For those interested in more leisurely pursuits, the walks along the coastal path are hard to beat.

The local restaurants offer excellent choices of surf, turf and everything in betw...

Management response:

We can only agree about the views from the front of Kittiwake One as they really are a superb setting for a sundowner. The walks are great too! Glad to hear you spotted dolphins and seals - they're a rare sight but it sounds like you lucked out! We'll have to update our guestbook to share the advice with others.

I booked to stay at Kittiwake with my daughter late last year for a weekend of walking, photography, and generally getting away from it all. The owners were really helpful in terms of giving me advice before we arrived. It wasn't just the essentials they helped with, but the extras like where the best walks and photo spots are. We...

The instructions the owners gave us were perfect and led us to the impeccably clean Kittiwake one. Has everything you need for a relaxing stay, felt like a home from home with beautiful view of Woolacombe bay. It's a 10 minute walk down a steep hill in to town/ the beach and we did the walk back up once.....and once...

About the neighbourhood
Being a coastal location, Woolacombe has it's own microclimate. As changeable as the British weather can be, sunny days on the beach are unbeatable. However there are lots of local alternative activities suitable for liquid sunshine days, from cinemas and theatres to wine tasting tours and indoor rock climbing. Below is a handful of activities our guests have enjoyed within reasonable driving distance of Kittiwake One:

• Surfing lessons at the local surf schools
• Climbing at one of the many centres in the area, such as the Rock and Rapid Adventure Centre.
• Quad biking and paintballing at Keypitts Farm
• Visit Quince Honey Farm
• Walking along the coastal path
• Catching a show or comedy routine at the Landmark theatre in Ilfracombe
• Enjoying ‘Treasure Trails’ in Barnstaple...
Getting around
You could, if you want, arrive in Woolacombe and forget about your car during your entire stay! Everything you could want a walk away. Groceries, clothing, bars, restaurants, surf equipment hire and a beautiful beach are all available in the town centre down the hill.

If you wanted to explore further afield then your car is the best bet. Use it to travel to Ilfracombe and hop on the ferry to Lundy Island, visit surrounding National Trust properties, or follow the coastal road further south and see the craggy rocks, wild coastlines and ancient lighthouses that await.
