About the property

Holiday Home in Woolacombe, North Devon - 2 mins walk to the Beach and 15 mins to Village. Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms) + cot

Beautiful 2 bedroom house on the border of Woolacombe / Mortehoe. Southerly facing, looking out over 3 different beaches to the south and Lundy Island to the west. Previously the end of a popular hotel this house is wonderfully sunny and bright without being hot. The bedrooms are all downstairs and open out onto a sunny patio with beach view. The upper balcony has the same view, extending out from the living area, making a great spot to watch the amazing sunsets with a cool drink! Linen, big white fluffy towels and beach towels are included, along with a welcome pack of food and wine. In easy reach of beaches, coastal walks, local bars & restaurants, this fresh, light and modern house makes a superb holiday property providing comfort, luxury and practicality whilst enjoying one of the best locations in the surrounding area. We are a totally "pet free" house so please don't ask to bring one, well behaved or otherwise. We have many people who come back year on year with pet allergies so like to make sure this is a relaxing environment for them and any other non pet families.

About Helen Gray

Hi, we are Mike and Helen who moved to Woolacombe from London in 2006 to start a family. We now live in the village with our 2 children and wouldn't give up the beach life for anything!

We lived at the House at Pebbles initially but after our 2nd child was born we moved to a bigger house, which we also now let in the summer while we are on holiday.

We love our summer holidays and therefore are happy to share our houses with like-minded people who we know will look after it and enjoy the area and the safety for children as much as we do.

Helen Gray purchased this house in 2002

Why Helen Gray chose Woolacombe

We bought the House at Pebbles when it was being converted and fell in love with it instantly, purely because of the view. We like being close enough to do things in the village but far enough out to be quiet and away from the crowds. The short, but vertical walk up the hill to Mortehoe brings you to a quaint little village almost stuck in time with lovely country pubs and beautiful coastal walks.

What makes this house unique

Easy reach of all beaches

Private off Road parking

Not in the hustle and bustle of the main village

Patio with views over the bay

Welcome pack

Guestbook comments from the owner

Spectacularly well equipped and comfortable.

Friendly owners who ensured that the entire family were well catered for. Loved the toy basket - thank you!

Brilliant house, if you ever want to sell it please let us know!

Comfortable and clean with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

A very nice 'upside-down house' with lounge and kitchen upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs and patio with views of both the sea and hillside.

The house was clean and well equipped and the welcome pack of bottles of wine, milk, tea, coffee and the cream tea of scones, jam and clotted cream was a lovely touch.

We would recommend staying here.
