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.

The Apartment was everything that you could possibly wish for. Attractive, comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. The views are amazing with some fantastic sunsets and we found it to be an ideal location for exploring North Devon.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is the most idyllic place to be in Westward Ho. A perfect view, in the most comfortable surroundings. Beds so comfortable you don't want to get up, and if you don't you can still lie there looking at the sea. Eating on the balcony in the evenings was wonderful, just watching the tide roll in and out. Access to shops and eateries was really easy, but no piece of equipment missing in the apartment. A couple of spare bin bags would be good, but overall definitely a place for revisiting.

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.

M5- Junction 27 at 40 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Morans Restaurant & Bar at 0.25 Miles Nearest Beach : Westward Ho! at 0.25 Miles Car: recommended

Whilst its hard to tear yourself away from the view at the apartment there is much to do in and around Westward Ho! When the tide is out its a delight to walk along the two miles of sandy beach and when the tide is in the Southwest coastal path passes right in front of our building. Enjoy a coffee in the village two minutes away (we recommend the Rock Pool cafe) or sit on the Green with a locally made ice cream. If you want to eat in, there are three local supermarkets and if you want to eat out locally theres quite a choice. We would highly recommend Cafe Italia Pizzeria and Morans Thai Restaurant. Along the prom is the Pier House with a large deck to watch the sunset. Its best to book in advance at all three. Around/near the Green theres a variety of shops and pubs as well as a few small amusement arcades.

A car ride away are the pretty villages of Appledore, Instow and Croyde, all great places to explore with plenty of places to eat. The many attractions in the area include RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Dartington Crystal, The Big Sheep, The Milky Way, Clovelly, Exmoor Zoo and many more.

Barnstaple is the oldest borough in the country and is the commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. A must visit for anyone seeking serious retail therapy. Saxons first settled in Barnstaple (Barum) over 1000 years ago; In 930 AD it was a Saxon stronghold serving as a market for the surrounding countryside.

Today it has a wonderful mixture of Victorian, Medieval and Georgian architecture and is proud to be a multiple winner of Britain in Bloom. Visit the Barnstaple Heritage Centre, sited in a fine Grade 1 listed building to learn more about the town's 1000 year history.

We have a large collection of leaflets in the apartment of places to visit and explore. Enjoy.
