About the property

Apartment in Westward Ho!, North Devon, England - on the waterfront

Our holiday home is in the award-winning Nautilus building situated on the seafront at Westward Ho! with floor to ceiling windows giving uninterrupted views across the bay from Baggy Point to Hartland Point. Westward Ho!’s Blue Flag 2 mile sandy beach is just a stone’s throw away, excellent for learning to surf and offering the perfect setting for a family holiday. Westward Ho! makes a great base for outdoor activities - cycling off road on the Tarka Trail through stunning scenery, the Royal North Devon Golf Club and the South West Coast Path are on the doorstep. The picturesque villages of Appledore and Clovelly are nearby. Alternatively, sit within the comfort of the apartment and watch the waves breaking in front. There really is something for everyone.

Amazing property with unforgetable views

  • 5 of 5

16 Nautilus is a fantastic property with a genuine WOW factor! It enjoys sea views that are hard to beat. The unique design of the apartment provides natural light throughtout the day with floor to cealing glass windows in the living / dining area. The weather was lovely throughout our week stay and we spent lots of time on the balcony (there are actually 3 balconies) enjoying the sun and the sunsets. The apartment was clean, well equiped and maintained and fully met our expectations. The owner provided good customer service from booking through to completion.

We explored the local area and enjoyed evening walks along the long sandy beach. We particularly liked Appledore which was only a few miles away. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation and would love to return.

Great Appartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at 16 Nautilus for half-term with our two boys aged 7 and 3. As the pictures indicate the apartment is right on the beach with just a quiet road separating you from the 2 miles of sand and rock pools which the boys loved. The apartment itself is spacious and nicely decorated, the bedrooms are both a good size and having two bathrooms was very useful. The upstairs living area really has the ‘wow-factor’, the views to the front are stunning from both the balcony and the whole lounge/kitchen. The apartment is so full of natural light that we never felt too guilty about being inside even when the weather wasn't great, when the tide is in you almost feel like you are on a boat as all you can see from the front of the apartment is the sea. The property is also extremely well equipped from the good quality (SMEG) kitchen appliances/wine cooler to the nice (John Lewis) towels, games, binoculars and children’s size cutlery. We found that many of the things that we had brought with us we didn't need as they were already there. We had a great week of beach time in Westward Ho!, crabbing in Appledore and cream-teas locally and visiting places further afield like Tintagel Castle, Clovely Village, Croyde and Woolacombe. Evenings were mostly spent on the balcony with a glass or two of wine while the boys were tucked-up downstairs. All in all a great week, were are planning to return!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The sunsets were spectacular - you have a truly amazing place. Everything was perfect.

I can see why you fell in love with the apartment and it really did make our holiday staying there. We would love to return sometime and continue to recommend it.

When we entered your property we were almost blown away by the welcoming touches that gave what was clearly a beautfiul apartment the real WOW factor. We felt so lucky to have found such a fantastic place, so well equipped and in such a wonderful location.

With more than 2 miles of golden sand, backed by a unique pebble ridge, Westward Ho! is the only beach in North Devon to be awarded Blue Flag status in 2016. Perfect for water sports and bathing, the beach is adjacent to the South West Coast Path. The North Devon Surf School is within easy walking distance.


Westward Ho! is just under an hour's drive from Junction 27 on the M5 motorway. It’s off the A39 Atlantic Highway between Barnstaple and Bude via the A386 from Bideford and then the B3236.

Further Details:

Westward Ho! is particularly well served for a village of its size and has late night supermarkets, a butchers, bakers, newsagents, chemist, post office, as well as surfing, angling and gift shops. All these are within 2 minutes walk of the apartment. The historic port of Bideford is the nearest town with a shopping centre and a Saturday market.
