About Lizzie Wright

We are a happy and fun-loving family of 5. We love the outdoors and with three children find a lot of time to explore and discover new things, making Woolacombe the ideal location for our holiday home.

Lizzie Wright purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Lizzie Wright chose North Devon

For more than 30 years our extended family with myself, from being a little girl, have visited Woolacombe every year.

In 2007, whilst expecting our third child, we decided to buy our own property in Woolacombe, which we had always considered our second home anyway. Then surprisingly we received the keys to our newly renovated and refurbished Woolacombe dream pad, hours from our daughter's arrival.

We love Woolacombe and everything it has to offer us now and in the future. We still get so excited about each visit regardless of how many there are each year.

It gives us a base to set so may memorable holidays, with something new to discover each time.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment benefits from direct views across the bay from its private balcony, the lounge and kitchen. And in just a couple minutes, you can walk onto the sand or get into the sea.

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Woolacombe is dominated by its main beach, blanketed in golden sand and stretches from the village all the way to Putsborough. Sand dunes lead away from the beach towards the hills. The quieter Barricane beach is covered in shells washed in by the Gulf Steam and has many rock pools for explorers. Coombesgate beach is more secluded but is just as dramatic. All beaches are within a 7 minute walk of the apartment and all have excellent surfing conditions (usually).

Fantastic apartment with stunning views and only a stones throw away from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a fantastic family weekend away in Woolacombe; many thanks to the owners who were very accommodating and made our holiday that extra bit special. The apartment is in a brilliant location and has parking outside. The apartment is clean, well kitted out with everything you need including towels, tea towels and bedding. It has spectacular views and we loved sitting outside on the balcony in the morning and evening. The location is ideal for exploring the coves, rock climbing, body boarding, sand castles, lazy beach times, shell hunting, local food and best of all for absorbing the beauty of the coastline and sea air. We would highly recommend this apartment to all and hope to return again ourselves in the near future to build even more amazing family memories!

Great location, very comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We had a windy week in woolacombe at the start of September with our two year old. The apartment was great for her - very safe and all on one floor, with a nice bathroom and full size cot which just about fits in between the permanent beds in the second bedroom so we didn't have to share! The master bedroom is a lovely size with balcony and great shower in the ensuite. Unfortunately we didn't get much opportunity to sit out on the balcony due to the weather but the views of the waves and surfers are great.

There's lots to do around the area - we went to the aquarium in Illfracombe, cycling on the Tarka Trail and over to Lynton - all short trips away. The rest of the time we enjoyed being so close to the beaches - a wind break, bucket and spade and a kite we're all we needed! We ate out for most meals - with the Sri Lankan curry at Barricane beach my favourite, although meals at the Boardwalk and Beachcomber cafe also great.

Would definitely recommend this apartment for small families like ours. Very easy and comfortable!

We've stayed here 2 years running and this year we had an even better time! The flat itself is immaculate and in the perfect location. The owner and housekeeper are easy to get hold of and very friendly. We will definitely be back.
