I am so delighted to have been directed to this wonderful Home from Home after a potentially disastrous double booking at another place. Warmest welcome from the wonderful Shirley and Steve, beautifully clean and tidy rooms, excellent breakfast (proper sausages and proper bacon and perfectly cooked eggs!) and the most breath-taking views meant that I ended up with a short...

Stayed over the Easter break and can't fault the accommodation or service we had during our stay. We were made to feel extremely welcome and were well looked after. We stayed in a family room (5) and it was spacious, clean and had everything we needed including a little fridge and fresh milk. Steve and Shirley were excellent hosts and...

Stayed at this guest house on two long weekends in October during family surf trips. The owners were friendly, attentive and helpful. The family rooms were comfortable (room 5 more so than 6), breakfast was decent enough, and the location within 10-15 minute walk of the beach and town was very convenient. We enjoyed both stays and would recommend this...

Really enjoyed our stay at Surf View. Owners are warm and friendly and have a good local knowledge so can recommend great places to eat. The sunsets were lovely from the patio and it was only a short stroll across the fields to the beach. Woolacoombe riding stables is a 5 min walk away and caters for all abilities. Thanks...

I have just returned from my third stay at Surf View this year. As in the past I received a friendly welcome, the house was clean and fresh, the room was excellent and the breakfast menu so comprehensive it is hard to choose what to have.
