About Lauren Toates

I moved to Devon in 2014 and I love it! The scenery, the coast, the really friendly people, the cheaper cost of living, all of it. I've never been happier.

I like hosting because I want to share this great place. I also love giving information (just imagine me with my hand up thinking 'I know! I'll tell you!'). So I'm very happy to give help and advice.

Lauren Toates purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Lauren Toates chose Westward Ho!

The views from this apartment have to be seen to be believed and they are amazing at all times of the year and in all weathers.

What makes this apartment unique

The higher up you go the more panoramic the views get, so the 4th floor is excellent. And the position of the apartment means the large balcony gets plenty of evening sun in the summer (many of the apartments don't). This apartment has Wifi and Sky TV including Sky Sports. Plus luxury touches like the Bang & Olufsen bluetooth speaker to enjoy your music.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lauren made us welcomed, the apartment is contemporary and very comfortable, with all the facilities to make a enjoyable break - the wonderful patio doors, lead on to the balcony, allowing the most amazing and stunning sea views, which totally captivated us during our stay, creating the perfect environment to relax and unwind, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to retuning,

I could live here, it was so beautiful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything one would want in a holiday home..

Airy, clean, well presented with all that is needed, home from home and better.

Lauren was a super host without being overly attentive.

The apartment block was well designed for access, parking, and lifts.

The views were breathtaking and listening to the sea all night and day, watching the tide go in and out was extremely relaxing. Sitting on the veranda wrapped in blankets at night was fun.

We started with two of us and ended with four and it was still very spacious.

The local Thai Morans and Italian Cafe Italia were perfect to eat at or get take away.

The cliff walks nearby and local areas of interest were stunning.

It's a gem of a place to the point I almost don't want to recommend it as I want to keep it all to myself!!

A beautifully decorated spacious apartment right on the seafront with superb uninterrupted views across the bay. Very well equipped kitchen, everything of the highest quality. Some lovely personal touches from Lauren to make you feel welcome and pampered. Excellent secure parking too. Some great walks without needing to be get the car out.

The apartment is right next to the 2 miles of sandy beach, known as the Golden Bay, which is great for surfing, bodyboarding, kite surfing, kite-buggies, rock pooling and sand castle building and swimming. Behind the beach is the Royal North Devon Golf course.

The Sout West Coast Path passes in front of the building and there are many great walks on your door step. For cyclists the Tarka Train passes close by.

Westward Ho! has a good selection of shops and restaurants. A few minutes drive away are the Atlantic Village outlet shopping centre, the Big Sheep theme park and the Ultimate Outdoors Adventure Centre.
