Kittiwake One is a one bedroom self-catering apartment located on a private lane overlooking Woolacombe Bay. From the property's hilltop location, which commands a view across miles of North Devon coastline, Woolacombe beach is a 10 minute walk downhill. The return journey depends on how fit you're feeling, although there is a bus service which drops off 100 yards from the front door! The location is quiet and peaceful, yet only fifteen minutes from the main facilities of larger towns such as Ilfracombe and Braunton. The apartment enjoys easy access to all amenities, including several centres for outdoor activities such as climbing and horse riding.

The apartment enjoys easy access to all amenities, including several centres for outdoor activities such as climbing and horse riding. For those interested in more leisurely pursuits, the walks along the coastal path are hard to beat. The local restaurants offer excellent choices of surf, turf and everything in between for those meals when you don't fancy taking the self-catering too literally - you are on holiday after all! Inside the apartment, the living room forms a focal point for entertainment on days in. Lounge around on the armchairs or sofa and make use of the board games and books while you play your music on the iPod dock, or settle down in front of the TV and DVD player to catch the shows you can't live without. Free wi-fi means you can catch up with entertainment or friends online while you enjoy your break. The living room leads out to a patio (sometimes called our breakfast room) where you can enjoy the view across miles of coastline from the picnic table. With one double bedroom, Kittiwake One is ideal for couples looking for a romantic getaway, with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay.More

This is a throughly recommended place to stay, adequate for two people. Self contained, cosy and with beautiful views of the coast. Clean and well furnished. Close to Woolacombe beach/town, 20 min walk but up and down a very steep hill - at least it...More

We were delighted to have you stay and, we agree, that walk back up certainly does justify the pint at the bottom of the hill!

Stayed here for three nights. The flat was very warm and comfortable and had everything you would need. The only downside was the noise that came from the flat above. A lovely place to stay to explore beautiful North Devon.

Stunning views. Disappointed that there was no small folding table to eat from indoors. Not impressed by the lack of deep cleaning, particularly under furniture and in the bathroom. Wet floor mop in cupboard causing 'fusty' smell. Shower drain badly in need of attention. Vacuum...More

About the neighbourhood
Being a coastal location, Woolacombe has it's own microclimate. As changeable as the British weather can be, sunny days on the beach are unbeatable. However there are lots of local alternative activities suitable for liquid sunshine days, from cinemas and theatres to wine tasting tours and indoor rock climbing. Below is a handful of activities our guests have enjoyed within reasonable driving distance of Kittiwake One: • Surfing lessons at the local surf schools • Climbing at one of the many centres in the area, such as the Rock and Rapid Adventure Centre. • Quad biking and paintballing at Keypitts Farm • Visit Quince Honey Farm • Walking along the coastal path • Catching a show or comedy routine at the Landmark theatre in Ilfracombe • Enjoying ‘Treasure Trails’ in Barnstaple and ...
Getting around
You could, if you want, arrive in Woolacombe and forget about your car during your entire stay! Everything you could want a walk away. Groceries, clothing, bars, restaurants, surf equipment hire and a beautiful beach are all available in the town centre down the hill. If you wanted to explore further afield then your car is the best bet. Use it to travel to Ilfracombe and hop on the ferry to Lundy Island, visit surrounding National Trust properties, or follow the coastal road further south and see the craggy rocks, wild coastlines and ancient lighthouses that await.
