About Stephanie molligoda

We bought Dudley House and the pizza place situated below in 2007 shortly after we got married. We lived there for 5 wonderful years but had to move out when we heard we were expecting our fourth child...we needed a bigger garden! We now live in a village a couple of miles away.

This is a cracking apartment - large and centrally located

  • 4 of 5

We had a week at Dudley House at the very beginning of August 2016. The apartment is great - much larger than we were expecting with everything you need for a break at the UK seaside. It is really well spec'ed and has a home from home feel. Having a table allowed the grown ups to torment the boys with board games. But the fast and reliable broadband meant they didn't feel too cut off. If you have teenagers you understand while this matters.

Husband and 2 teenage boys went off and surfed each day and because the apartment is located within easy walking distant of the beach the damper days of the English summer didn't matter. They just got kitted out in the apartment and went anyway - board under arm for a couple of hours. And when the sun shone Woolacombe beach is awesome. Great for little people and bigger people.

There are plenty of pubs and restaurants within minutes but if you want to cook the kitchen is decently equipped to do so.

Really recommend this property. When we next head to Devon for a surf break we'll be checking availability here first.

Fantastic apartment- beautifully presented, and ideal location for beach, shops and food! Had everything we needed for our week- including a working tumble dryer! Just needs a teapot to be perfect!

Lovely place

  • 4 of 5

Overall a very clean, spacious maisonette which I would happily book again, the best thing about it was how close it was to the shops and bars. We were able to walk into town every evening to grab a bite to eat with the kids.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Jube at 10 Metres Nearest Golf : Willingcott/Easewell at 1 Miles Nearest Train : Barnstaple at 12 Miles Nearest Beach : Woolacombe Sands at 400 Metres Car: recommended


Dudley House is situated approximately 400m (a 2 minute walk) from Woolacombe Beach (voted Britain's number one beach according to Trip Advisor 2015). Woolacombe Beach is famous for its 3 miles of golden sands and is very popular amongst surfers and families for beach holidays. The village is surrounded by national trust land providing stunning coastal and countryside walks and is part of the route of the South West Coast Path.


Our nearest town is the market town of Barnstaple, 12 miles away which has supermarkets, cinema complex, a leisure centre and many other shops and tourist attractions. There are also smaller supermarkets in Braunton and Ilfracombe. Next to Woolacombe is the charming village of Mortehoe which is a perfect spot for a traditional pub lunch and then walk out to the headland to see if you can spot any seals sunbathing on the rocks.

Further Details:

As well as having Woolacombe Beach on our doorstep, we would highly recommend visiting the small cove of Barricane (about 10 mins walk away) for a lovely sheltered spot for shell collecting, rock climbing and best of all enjoying the beach cafe at Barricane which serves Sri Lankan curry in the evenings - simply magic! Within 10-15 minutes of drive of Woolacombe are the beaches of Croyde, Putsborough and Saunton, perfect if you fancy exploring whilst here.
