About James McRae

We were one of the first people to buy in Horizon View back in 2008 whilst visiting our family. Reflections was truly special and always will be, In 2010 we decided to purchase Tides, which is virtually underneath our other apartment but has the benefit of immediate access to the grounds for our dogs. It is also bigger and suited us better. We stayed there full time for a couple of years and took it off the rental market while we moved down from Surrey and completed a building project. We have now bought a farm locally and decided to rent it out again.

James McRae purchased this apartment in 2010

Why James McRae chose Westward Ho!

Tides is like a cottage, it has its own front door directly out onto the complex grounds where you can sit in the sun protected from the wind. It is one of the biggest two bedroom apartments and is very special benefiting from a huge three window wide view from both the living room and master bedroom directly onto the sea and bay. It also has a fabulous en-suite with both large shower enclosure, bath, wc and sink. The family bathroom is also much larger than the standard size. With a downstairs wc and two floors both with private balconies this is the only apartment like it in the whole complex and is very special!!

What makes this apartment unique

Huge master bedroom with three window wide view directly out to sea with its own balcony. Massive en-suite with separate shower AND bath. Larger than average main bathroom. Impressive living room, again with three windows looking out to sea with private balcony off. (most have only two windows). Separate allocated dining area and beautifully equipped kitchen with Induction Hob. Protected area outside the front door to sit protected from the wind in the sunshine. This is the only apartment like it in the complex - Unique!!

Wonderful in every way

  • 5 of 5

Reflections is a wonderful apartment with everything you could need and views that made my spirits soar. Even in February there was plenty of choice of great places to eat and things to do. We had a fabulous holiday.

Thank you James for making it such an easy booking process and the welcome goodies including scones, cream and jam 😀?

We have stayed in Horizon View many times and if we can, try and book James’ apartment as first priority. Being on the top floor at the far end of the building allows you the privacy, but more importantly , low enough to see the crashing waves against the promenade. At this time of year these were quite spectacular - we had never seen them so big! We love the high ceiling and massive wide windows overlooking the sea, most have only two and are a lot darker. They are attentive hosts and nothing is too much trouble. There is building work behind the whole of Horizon View but this did not interfere with our stay. In fact we have booked again for Easter!

Amazing views , stunning apartment

  • 5 of 5

The owner was friendly and helpful on arrival and despite seeing pictures we were blown away by the stunning sea views from this apartment . The apartment itself lived up to its billing and was clean and well equipped. The master bedroom is huge and the highlight of the holiday was being able to watch the sea while tucked up in bed.

Westward Ho as a village had everything we needed all within a 5 minute walk and the beach offers both sand and rock pools. We will definitely be coming back and have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay.

Our happy place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Reflections for the past 4 years. We can't seem to face going anywhere else! The apartment is fantastic and has everything you need. The location is perfect. Access to the beach, shops, restaurants and pubs! Despite being in the middle of everything, it still feels completely private. There is nothing better than sitting on the balcony, watching the sun go down behind Lundy. We absolutely love it there and wish we could go more often than once a year. We always have a lovely welcome from James and we will be back again next year.

Brilliant apartment fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Have spent many years holidaying in Cornwall and Devon but never been to westward ho and was not disappointed!!

The apartment was absolutely amazing.

Everything needed to make a wonderful holiday and more beside.

The highlight has got to be going to sleep with the sound of the sea through the huge windows.

Enjoyed it so much we hope to come back for 2 weeks next year.

Immediate access from the flat to the fantastic Blue flag Westward Ho! beach which is great for surfing, boarding, kiting and swimming. Central base to access Appledore, Instow, Woolacombe, Croyde, Braunton, Saunton and of course Cornwall for Bude. Fast coastal road 4 minutes away. Bideford town a five minute drive and Barnstable about 20 minutes away by car.

Many local attractions including the Big Sheep, Milky Way Adventure Park,Exmoor Zoo, Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park and Northam Burrows County Park.

Lundy Island can be reached by ferry from Bideford, it is an island three and a half miles long and half a mile wide and rises steeply from the sea.

Lundy is famous for its seabirds, including a few breeding pairs of the puffins which gave the island its name (Norse for Puffin Isle) but there is also a wealth of other animals and plants on the island and in the waters around it.

RHS Rosemoor is also about half an hour drive away.

Golf: The apartment is located very close to The Royal North Devon Golf Club which is the oldest golf course in England. Additional golf courses are also available in the surrounding area.
