About Mrs Rachel Snaith

The Osborne family spent many holidays at this property when it was The Putsborough Sands Hotel. We always enjoyed family holidays at this beautiful beach and when we had the opportunity to purchase an apartment here( in 1989) we jumped at the chance.

Mrs Rachel Snaith purchased this apartment in 1989

Why Mrs Rachel Snaith chose North Devon

During the conversion from hotel to the present day apartments we were able to choose a prime position, with all six windows directly overlooking the beach. It is still very much a family apartment and although we let it out to holiday guests, we use it ourselves and constantly upgrade the equipment and furnishings.

What makes this apartment unique

Comfortable spacious accommodation in an exclusive and uniquely desirable clifftop setting. Swim in the heated indoor pool which is situated just a few yards away in a separate, locked building, which is for residents of the apartments only. During winter the apartment is warm and cosy with night storage heaters in every room and an electric fire to give a warm glow on chilly evenings.

There are many walks which lead directly from the apartment and walking along the beach to Woolacombe is definitely a family favourite. If you are too tired to walk back you can always catch a taxi! We also enjoy sitting on the balcony and watching the surfers.........even in winter they are out in the surf and it's fascinating to watch them catching the waves.

The apartment is very accessible as our parking space is near the front door. There are just a couple of steps down and along a walkway and you enter the front door at ground level. As the building is set into the hillside you are then high up (3rd floor) when you look out of the apartment windows and the views are fabulous. The architect designed interior takes advantage of the setting from every aspect. Both bedrooms, sitting room and dining area all have windows which look out towards the panoramic sea views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Owner uploaded Review, as requested by guest, therefore no Star Rating....



This year was our fourth year at 21 Clifton Court. We have always felt so fortunate to have our holiday in this excellent apartment.



The sea views from the balcony (and every window) are wonderful beyond belief-as are the breathtaking sunsets. The apartment is equipped with everything one needs and always immaculate. It has a superb kitchen, comfortable sofas, special paintings, games, puzzles, books, DVDs, maps and informative folders on places to visit in this beautiful area. Child friendly too!!



The swimming pool is an extra plus and the amazing beach only a five minute walk away. We love it all!



Finally, but most importantly, Rachel and her staff are always easy to contact, efficient and so helpful in every respect.



Would highly recommend- 5 star with many +++++

Mini break in February

  • 5 of 5

Despite experiencing four seasons of weather in one day , we had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay at this wonderful, very well appointed apartment. The views are breath-taking, and can be enjoyed most especially from the living room windows and balcony. The kitchen is very well equipped which meant it was easy to keep the family happy. The views from the dining table are incredible, and caused us to linger longer than usual over each meal. If you want a few days, or longer, enjoying the beach, surfing, walking or cycling you could not choose a better place. I look forward to returning soon.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. The views from the dining table are indeed breathtaking, so that in winter long leisurely meals are thoroughly entertaining! Watching the surfers, paddlers, dog walkers and occasional group of horses on the sands below never fails to draw you in. We hope to welcome you again in the near future.

Awesome property with views to die for.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in a lot of properties in devon & Cornwall but this one is one of the better ones, every mod con you could need & spotlessly clean it's hard to find one that's pet free , shame we were not informed about the pool been shut for our first 3 days we were there but the owners were quick to sort a refund out but we did get a swim in the pool on our last night & was awesome all on our own now that's rare . Only one thing I would have liked a tv in the master bedroom had to put up with big brother & Corrie hence finding a place I good go for a swim in the evening , would definitely go back & have told my friends all about this place 😀😀

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful flat, both in terms of the view and the comfort and it felt like being at home. Well equipped kitchen, everything spotlessly clean and the rooms were well heated. The pool was very warm too. Well situated in terms of walks and sightseeing. We will definitely return.
