holiday review, Westward Ho!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 27-Apr-2009
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2008
What a fantastic property; accurately advertised. Very friendly owners who were approachable and helpful. The apartment was in a superb location, right on the sea front with marvellous views which were ever changing. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday apartment to friends. The surrounding area was beautiful and unspoilt. Not very good eateries surrounding the property so needed a car to travel further afield.

Owner's Response: The "Pot Walloping Restaurant" on Golf links road (only a few minutes walk from Nautilus Appartments) has been highly recomended, it has an interesting menu including excelent fresh seafood. "Memories" Restaurant in Northam (5 mins drive) is recomended and has been listed in the 2009 Michelin Guide.

There are also many Pubs and Takeaways. The fishing village Appledore is only 5-10 mins drive and has several attractive restaurants and pub. We provide a list of eateries both locally and further afield.

Nautilus 20, great apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 24-Sep-2012
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2012
We ( family of 4) had a very comfortable week in Nautilus 20. The apartment is spacious, very well equipped and in a great location for both local amenities and sightseeing. However, for me the best part was the view from the sofa - an uninterrupted view of the sea through the floor to ceiling window, absolutely fantastic! We enjoyed fish n chips from the shop round the corner, had a delicious cream tea from the retro cafe also just round the corner and our children enjoyed the short walk ( literally across the road) to the beach, ice cream shop and seaside amusements. We found lovely pubs within a short drive from Westward Ho for the evenings...particularly in Appledore. We also enjoyed a coastal walk from the apartment to Mermaid Pool and back along the Kipling Tors. Clevelly was a lovely day out, as was our trip to Bideford. All in all, a great week. Thank you to the owners for quickly dealing with our last minute booking. This is the first holiday apartment we have stayed in that we would consider returning to!

First time visit to Westward Ho and recently stayed a this wonderful two bedroom apartment. Amazing view from master bedroom and open plan sitting room straight out onto the sea shore. Property very comfortably furnished in contemporary style and absolutely spotless. We all enjoyed being able to sit on the balcony enjoying ourselves overlooking the never ending sandy beach which also has plenty of rock pools to entertain the young ones. Plenty of information provided for activities and restaurants in surrounding area and beyond. Within walking distance of great restaurants and cafe. A very good base for discovering the beauty of North Devon. Highly recommended.

Fabulous Devon Break

We had an amazing time in Westwood Ho which was made all the better by staying in this apartment. We loved it. The apartment was very well laid out, great parking, great bedrooms, stunning views from the main bedroom and lounge. The kitchen and dining area was great for entertaining, You would be hard pushed to find anything wrong with the apartment, views or the location.

We were able to walk just yards to get to the beach, local Coop, amazing fish and chip shop and other local amenities. The view as you drive into Westwood Ho is enough to make you want to never leave.

We were able to go to other local towns which i visited as child and we also made the drive to Exeter and Lynmouth which was well worth it and easy to get to.

Altogether it was a truly memorable first family holiday for us and our little six month old Daya. Who incidentally was as sad to leave as I was.

Finally I cannot praise Annabel enough for being very friendly and amazingly helpful.

Thankyou Nautilius for a truly fabulous holiday. We shall definitely be back.

Superb Apartment with Outstanding Views

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 13-Apr-2010
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2010
We booked the apartment as a last minute getaway for Easter and could not have been more pleased. We are a family of 5, with 3 kids under 15 but the apartment is so spacious and airy, the bedrooms large and double bath/shower rooms meant we didn't feel we were overcrowded.
The kitchen and living areas are very well equipped and cleverly thought out, the rooms are very warm and cozy.
Last but certainly not least was the view, the sea is so close, it feels like you're on a ship at times. The view is constantly changing and its very easy to sit and just watch the tide roll in and out, very relaxing.

Westward Ho! is what it is, it's a small Devonshire seaside town, not having too many restaurants but it does have plenty of good grocery/bakery stores, a Co-op, and a good butchers, as well as a terrific fish an chip shop and Chinese restaurant/take-away right around the corner.
The car is safely parked within a secure sliding gated parking lot behind the building

It's a great hopping off point for exploring the area and all in all a fantastic holiday apartment.

Must be even nicer in Summer....

Westward Ho! is a seaside town a few miles from Bideford and ten miles from Barnstaple, North Devon's main town. Westward Ho!'s main attraction is the ten mile beach which gained 'blue flag' status five years ago. It is host of a range of water and beach sports such as surfing, windsurfing, sand yachting, kite flying and of course swimming to name just a few. The North Devon coastal footpath is accessible from the town and not far away are the picturesque villages of Hartland and Clovelly. A slightly longer drive takes you to Exmoor unbeatable for walking, riding, fishing etc. Famous coastal towns such as Lynmouth, Ilfracommbe and Porlock are also found there. Westward Ho! has all the usual facilities such as supermarket etc. and it has many pubs and restaurants serving good fresh food and the fish and chips are excellent. Instow and Barnstaple have a variety of restaurants and for those seeking something special, The Masons Arms, on Exmoor (michelin star) is well worth the journey.

Other Activities: Blue Flag beach, particularly well known for surfing,Kiteing and sand yachting ,
