About John and Barbara

We are both retired and live in North East London near Epping Forest. Barbara was an Infant school Head Teacher and John was a Divisional Manager. At least once a year, since retiring, we have done a House Exchange with folks in Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The trips we have enjoyed most have always been in modern homes near the sea so buying somewhere with a real sea view back here in the UK was always our dream.

John and Barbara purchased this apartment in 2015

Why John and Barbara chose Torridge

We rented an apartment at Horizon View, twice in 2014...we liked it so much with its amazing ‘wow’ factor sea view we asked the owners if they wanted to sell! That wasn’t to be but as soon as number 60 came up for sale we snapped it up. Westward Ho! is such a great little seaside town...the kind of place that reminds you of your own visits to the seaside as a child. It has an amazing beach, coastal path, restaurants and cafes and a full range of small shops for all your holiday requirements.

What makes this apartment unique

The extra high ceilings and full height windows in the lounge and master bedroom make the views from this apartment fabulous. It’s furnished in a modern style 'with a twist of seaside’ that we think visitors will enjoy. It’s extremely comfortable and well appointed and sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sunset will give you those extra special holiday memories.

Oak wood strip flooring to living room, kitchen and hall, gas central heating and hot water. Washer dryer, Egyptian cotton linen and luxury towels included. Secure underground car park with lifts to all floors, security gates and building front door with video entry system to let in guests.

Modern beautifully appointed apartment with a stunning seaview

  • 5 of 5

Location of apartment second to none. Fully equipped with all modern facilities. Very quiet and calming. Lovely local walks and a stunning beach mean you do not have to venture far for a relaxing holiday experience. Westward Ho not too commercial so good for grown ups as well as children. Apartment also comes with secure underground parking for peace of mind.

Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well maintained and has stunning views of the sea and the beach. You can hear the sea crashing on the beach as you wake up in the morning and when you drift off at night. Sunsets and sun rises take your breath away.

I will definitely be coming again and Andy the property manager is an invalueable asset.

Los Angeles without a flight!

  • 5 of 5

I travel frequently to LA and stay in a hotel with a view of the ocean. When I sent pictures to friends of the view from Penthouse 60, they thought I was in LA. The view was simply mesmerising. Watch the surfers in the day and the stars at night; study the tide and the waves lapping beneath and you will leave feeling refreshed.

I am a regular traveller for work and pleasure and have been fortunate enough to stay mainly in 5 star hotels; this apartment was really of no less a standard. The attention to detail and cleanliness was superb.

Finally, the owners were a delight to deal with. Extremely courteous, efficient, accessible and helpful even though I booked at the last minute.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Penthouse from the moment we walked through the door. It is clean, bright and airy with the best views over Westward Ho! beach. So lovely to be able to relax on the balcony with a cuppa and enjoy the views. (yes, even at the end of October). We didn't close the blinds once,because it is so lovely to wake up to the changing sky and with the sea just below you - bliss!

The Penthouse is well equipped with all you need for a good self-catering stay. it was nice to be welcomed by Andy (from the management company) and to know that he, or a member of his team, was available if we had any problems/queries.

The building is secure with access to all entrance via a key fob. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from all the facilities that Westward Ho! has to offer.

We hope to come back one day soon.
