We are both retired and live in North East London near Epping Forest. Barbara was an Infant school Head Teacher and John was a Divisional Manager. At least once a year, since retiring, we have done a House Exchange with folks in Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The trips we have enjoyed most have always been in modern homes near the sea so buying somewhere with a real sea view back here in the UK was always our dream.
John and Barbara purchased this apartment in 2015
We rented an apartment at Horizon View, twice in 2014...we liked it so much with its amazing ‘wow’ factor sea view we asked the owners if they wanted to sell! That wasn’t to be but as soon as number 60 came up for sale we snapped it up. Westward Ho! is such a great little seaside town...the kind of place that reminds you of your own visits to the seaside as a child. It has an amazing beach, coastal path, restaurants and cafes and a full range of small shops for all your holiday requirements.
The extra high ceilings and full height windows in the lounge and master bedroom make the views from this apartment fabulous. It’s furnished in a modern style 'with a twist of seaside’ that we think visitors will enjoy. It’s extremely comfortable and well appointed and sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sunset will give you those extra special holiday memories.
Oak wood strip flooring to living room, kitchen and hall, gas central heating and hot water. Washer dryer, Egyptian cotton linen and luxury towels included. Secure underground car park with lifts to all floors, security gates and building front door with video entry system to let in guests.
This was our second stay, just as amazing as the first. 5* in every way from the magnificent views to the attention to detail and sheer cleanliness of the apartment throughout. We love the pier house ! Friendly, lovely atmosphere and short walk from the apartment. We will definitely be back, thanks again Sharon, julien, jaden and Cody xxxx
I travel frequently to LA and stay in a hotel with a view of the ocean. When I sent pictures to friends of the view from Penthouse 60, they thought I was in LA. The view was simply mesmerising. Watch the surfers in the day and the stars at night; study the tide and the waves lapping beneath and you will leave feeling refreshed.
I am a regular traveller for work and pleasure and have been fortunate enough to stay mainly in 5 star hotels; this apartment was really of no less a standard. The attention to detail and cleanliness was superb.
Finally, the owners were a delight to deal with. Extremely courteous, efficient, accessible and helpful even though I booked at the last minute.
We loved the Penthouse from the moment we walked through the door. It is clean, bright and airy with the best views over Westward Ho! beach. So lovely to be able to relax on the balcony with a cuppa and enjoy the views. (yes, even at the end of October). We didn't close the blinds once,because it is so lovely to wake up to the changing sky and with the sea just below you - bliss!
The Penthouse is well equipped with all you need for a good self-catering stay. it was nice to be welcomed by Andy (from the management company) and to know that he, or a member of his team, was available if we had any problems/queries.
The building is secure with access to all entrance via a key fob. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from all the facilities that Westward Ho! has to offer.
We hope to come back one day soon.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely flat Terrifically well equipped, amazing views that change all the time and good surfing. Nice walks and good places to eat - gorgeous and great value.
Our second visit to Penthouse 60 was fantastic! It will not be our last.
The apartment is clean, fresh, airy and has a modern feel with high quality features and the most stunning views over Westward Ho beach. The entire building is very secure allowing a very relaxed feel within the apartment and vehicle parking. A delightful management team who offer a warm welcome on arrival but remain on hand if required throughout your stay, a bottle of fizz was a lovely touch and offered great refreshment after our 5 hour journey.....thank you. With some lovely coastal walks it offers the perfect mid point between Appledore and Abbotsham.
If you are considering enjoying a break in Westward Ho then Penthouse 60 is the apartment to stay.
Excellent in everyway.... Location, ... Less than a minutes walk from supermarket, bakers, butchers, deli, chemist, cafes, bars restaurants, bus stop, and beach. The apartment is of an excellent high standard with panoramic views of the bay. This apartment must have one of the best balcony views in the south west. We look forward to returning.
Whilst its hard to tear yourself away from the view at the apartment there is much to do in and around Westward Ho! When the tide is out its a delight to walk along the two miles of sandy beach and when the tide is in the Southwest coastal path passes right in front of our building. Enjoy a coffee in the village two minutes away (we recommend the Rock Pool cafe) or sit on the Green with a locally made ice cream. If you want to eat in, there are three local supermarkets and if you want to eat out locally theres quite a choice. We would highly recommend Cafe Italia Pizzeria and Morans Thai Restaurant. Along the prom is the Pier House with a large deck to watch the sunset. Its best to book in advance at all three. Around/near the Green theres a variety of shops and pubs as well as a few small amusement arcades.
A car ride away are the pretty villages of Appledore, Instow and Croyde, all great places to explore with plenty of places to eat. The many attractions in the area include RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Dartington Crystal, The Big Sheep, The Milky Way, Clovelly, Exmoor Zoo and many more.
Barnstaple is the oldest borough in the country and is the commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. A must visit for anyone seeking serious retail therapy. Saxons first settled in Barnstaple (Barum) over 1000 years ago; In 930 AD it was a Saxon stronghold serving as a market for the surrounding countryside.
Today it has a wonderful mixture of Victorian, Medieval and Georgian architecture and is proud to be a multiple winner of Britain in Bloom. Visit the Barnstaple Heritage Centre, sited in a fine Grade 1 listed building to learn more about the town's 1000 year history.
We have a large collection of leaflets in the apartment of places to visit and explore. Enjoy.
