Just returned from a long weekend in Woolacombe. Steve gave us a warm welcome, lots of useful information and a perfect room for myself, my husband and our 3 year old. The room (6) was modern but warm, with lots of storage space. The silent fridge and the microwave were a godsend and the walk in shower was spacious and...

Beautiful location and beautiful guest house! Shirley and Steve were the perfect hosts and the room was a modern, immaculate pleasure to stay in. The choice for breakfast was awesome, pancakes and maple syrup being my favourite! Would definately stay here again and can't wait for my next visit! Thank you SurfView!

What a superb guest house this is! The bedroom was beautifully elegant with plenty of storage space and thoughtful touches which make all the difference – a fridge, proper milk, bottle of water, wine glasses – besides the wi-fi, flat screen tv, tea/coffee etc. Both the bedroom and en-suite bathroom were absolutely spotless, the bed was enormous and very very...

Steve made us feel incredibly welcome as soon as we arrived and gave us so much information on Woolacoombe. Room was very modern, clean and bright and as requested we had the King Size room with sea view (well worth the extra £10).There was a really wide selection for breakfast and Steve and Shirley made us feel right as home....
