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.

Why Helen Gray chose North Devon

We bought originally to use as an office but decided to redecorate, revamp and holiday let it as so many friends who stayed there said how lovely it was to be so close to everything but still be tucked away in a quiet space.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a brilliant place for couples who just want to chill out. It's central to all the bars and restaurants and easy access to the beach, but is still quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Brilliant for our getaway! Everything was so close and the flat so well equipped."

"We loved the flat. Please let us know if you ever want to sell it?"

Notes on accommodation: The flat is a lovely cosy little place to stay. It is comfortable for 2 people and could fit more on a sofa bed but we believe that is it just right for 2 and don’t want you to be squashed. We have made it luxurious, not cheap and cheerful. The property is a non smoking, no pet property. Outside: The flat has no outside space apart from the stairs outside which does have a rack for hanging wetsuits to dry. The car park is at the back of the flat and is off the road and marked as Private. There is space for one car to park. Utility Room: There isn’t room for a washing machine however the laundrette is in the same street so washing and drying can be easily achieved. There is an airer and also an iron and ironing board. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen and towels are provided, along with tea towels and beach towels etc. The property is cleaned weekly on changeover however for stays of more than a week a linen change can be arranged at your convenience. Other: The flat has full broadband internet access, central heating throughout that is easily controllable by guests but rarely needed.

Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Very good value for money and in a quiet location but only a few minutes walk to the beach. The flat was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed. We appreciated the thoughtful touches of the wine, muffins, milk and chocolates to welcome us. Thank you Helen.

Perfect Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was feeling ambivalent about spending my first Christmas in the UK without my children and parents in the US, so my English husband and I decided to go out of town to somewhere I had never been to cheer me up. We chose Woolacombe and it turned out to be the perfect spot, especially because the scenery and hiking are wonderful and the apartment we rented was just right and very reasonably priced. Helen, the owner, was wonderful to work with before we arrived, making sure I knew when and where to get my grocery shopping done on Christmas Eve and which restaurants were open if we decided to eat out. At one point before we arrived, Helen emailed to ask if we would like a tree and if so, did we want them to decorate or did we want to do it. I knew then it was going to be a wonderful vacation. When we arrived to the apartment, there was a bottle of Proseco, Christmas cake, Italian Christmas cake, a breakfast of scones and clotted cream, and best of all a Christmas tree with lights and decorations ready to be added. It was so perfect. The apartment turned out be clean, roomy, and with a slight view of the ocean, and late afternoon sun in the living room. The wifi worked perfectly on the first try. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen well-appointed, and the shower was sublime with plenty of power to wash my long thick hair. The location is impeccable and it is an easy walk to the beach, Mortehoe, and the local surfer bars. Whenever we had a question, I emailed Helen and she was quick to respond and send us in the right direction. Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this apartment, the fantastic owners, and Christmas in Woolacombe.
