About Helen Gray

Hi, we are Mike and Helen who moved to Woolacombe from London in 2006 to start a family. We now live in the village with our 2 children and wouldn't give up the beach life for anything!

We lived at the House at Pebbles initially but after our 2nd child was born we moved to a bigger house, which we also now let in the summer while we are on holiday.

We love our summer holidays and therefore are happy to share our houses with like-minded people who we know will look after it and enjoy the area and the safety for children as much as we do.

Why Helen Gray chose North Devon

We bought originally to use as an office but decided to redecorate, revamp and holiday let it as so many friends who stayed there said how lovely it was to be so close to everything but still be tucked away in a quiet space.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a brilliant place for couples who just want to chill out. It's central to all the bars and restaurants and easy access to the beach, but is still quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Brilliant for our getaway! Everything was so close and the flat so well equipped."

"We loved the flat. Please let us know if you ever want to sell it?"

Notes on accommodation: The flat is a lovely cosy little place to stay. It is comfortable for 2 people and could fit more on a sofa bed but we believe that is it just right for 2 and don’t want you to be squashed. We have made it luxurious, not cheap and cheerful. The property is a non smoking, no pet property. Outside: The flat has no outside space apart from the stairs outside which does have a rack for hanging wetsuits to dry. The car park is at the back of the flat and is off the road and marked as Private. There is space for one car to park. Utility Room: There isn’t room for a washing machine however the laundrette is in the same street so washing and drying can be easily achieved. There is an airer and also an iron and ironing board. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All linen and towels are provided, along with tea towels and beach towels etc. The property is cleaned weekly on changeover however for stays of more than a week a linen change can be arranged at your convenience. Other: The flat has full broadband internet access, central heating throughout that is easily controllable by guests but rarely needed.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Lovely flat in a great location, close to the beach, shops, amenities, and an excellent chippy.

Helen was very understanding and accommodating as wife has some allergies and we needed to cater for these, and made for a very relaxing holiday. Lots of goodies on arrival. Very easy to find using instructions given. First class accommodation, very nicely decorated, and well maintained.

Looking forward to returning.

Very clean and cozy. Located in the centre but without the noise. Very close to the beach. Had a complimentary bottle of wine and scones. Bottle of milk and some celebration chocolates were also there for us when we arrived. A packet telling you all about what to find in the local area. Great communication with owner leading up to our stay but instructions were clear so we did not need to contact whilst we were there. Overall 10/10. A brilliant stay!

Lovely flat , well situated.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely flat in a good position , really clean and welcoming. Couldn't fault it , very comfortable.

Only one little problem ,at the end of our stay the cleaner turned up and said the flat had to be vacated by 10 o'clock and on the the information sheet sent to me it clearly said out by 11. Like I said minor but it meant rushing a little at the end. Would stay here again.

Perfect location in the heart of Woolacombe. Helen was really helpful and the scones/ wine were a lovely welcome. Great shower too! We were attending a wedding nearby so didn't spend much time there though I wouldn't hesitate to book again and will definitely recommend. Many thanks.
