Welcome to Seashells.
The living-area has a balcony with amazing sea views.
The open plan living space is divided by the kitchen-area, with the dining-table at the far end.
The spacious master bedroom also has a balcony the full length of the room.
The master bedroom has a large en suite bathroom.
Seashells is the second apartment from the right - this is the rear of the building that you will see as you arrive and park.
A view to delight each morning.
What a view!
The sleek kitchen is extremely well-equipped. There is now a brand new electric hob, replacing the gas one shown in this image.
This is the dining-area at one end of the open plan living-room.
The master room has been styled beautifully.
The twin bedroom is at the back of the apartment.
Another view of the twin bedroom.
There is a family shower-room.
There are welcoming touches and attention to detail throughout the apartment.
Another view of this dramatic building from its car park. The dining-area is on this side of the building and therefore faces inland.
The Blue Flag beach at Westward Ho! Miles of sand at low tide.
Head to Bideford for the day and maybe a day trip to Lundy!
The joys of the North Devon coast line!
Delightful Clovelly is a short car journey away.
Sit and admire the view of the village from the harbour at Clovelly.
Or perhaps paddle in the harbour.
Appledore looking lovely in the sun.
The miles of golden sands at Instow.
Take the passenger ferry from Bideford Quay and spend the day at Lundy Island.

Outstanding value for money. Equipped with everything you could ever need in self-catering accommodation. And the views of the beach are incredible.

A lovely modern apartment with fabulous sea views and in a convenient position for shops and restaurants

Seashell's is a lovely apartment, with stunning views of the sea. The super king bed is very comfortable. It is also very nice to have secure parking for 2 cars.

Once again a superb holiday in a superb location in a superb apartment.

We were informed the day before our holiday of a roof leak damage on living room wall which should not have affected our stay so we proceeded. On arrival we were greeted by scaffolding front & back which did obstruct our access and view at all times. This was hugely disappointing as the sea view & sun sets are stunning but spoilt by this scaffolding. There is also a road 1m directly in front of balcony which is noisy. Workmen were fixing the roof throughout our stay which did again cause disappointment in terms of privacy and noise. The house is not up to other classic cottage standards that we have stayed in eg. Towels not fluffy, lack of nice toiletries, rug in bedroom looks old/dirty and simple packet of biscuits left rather than hamper we are used to via classic. Although not promised these are nice, low cost touches that improve a holiday.

Thanks for your feedback following your stay at Seashells. We are so sorry that you were dissapointed and are saddened that we were unable do resolve the situation with the scaffolding, which was due to an unforseen roof issue. However, we are grateful that we were able to offer a refund to help offset your disappointment. Your suggestions of adding the toiletries and biscuits are really helpful and have shared them with the owner for consideration. We so hope to welcome you back to a Classic Cottage again in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

We both love Seashells and have been coming since 2013 as it is a real home-from-home with everything you need already there and in great comfort. The views in all directions from the amazing floor to ceiling windows are unsurpassable morning to night. The resort has something for everyone of all ages but ssssh please don’t tell anyone… it’s our secret xx

Excellent in every way.

Great property, we really couldn’t fault it. The views were stunning and the location was amazing. We had a brilliant family holiday and would like to visit again.

Lovely break with beautiful views. The apartment has everything you need, highly recommend.

A wonderful location, superb accommodation with comfort and attention to detail at the centre of the whole experience. We would not hesitate to recommend this property and sincerely hope to return. Thank you for making our week so memorable.

Seashells is a beautiful appartment in a perfect location. It has everything you need to relax and enjoy some family time away.

What a fabulous apartment, wonderful views and very well equipped it has everything you could want. Home from home and more.

Thank you for letting us share your beautiful apartment

Seashells is a lovely place to stay, very comfy, would highly recommend.

A wonderfully situated apartment, with everything you need for a fantastic family holiday just a stones throw away.

We've rented properties all over the world and I've never stayed anywhere as well equipped as Seashells. Rubber gloves, soap, dishwasher powder, silver foil etc... - all these things I normally have to bring with me or go out and buy on arrival. It really was like a home away from home - 10 out of 10 for equipment. The beds were very comfortable, and having a 6 foot bed in the main bedroom is one reason why we picked this property. How couples sleep in a standard double I have no idea! The whole property was clean and spacious. We had a great week aided by being in a lovely property. lots of restaurants close by for eat in or take out, plus Tesco express and the Co-op

This is the third time we have stayed at Seashells. On each visit the apartment has been spotlessly clean, comfortable, warm, welcoming and well equipped and has a wonderful view of the sea. We can’t fault it. Rosy was extremely efficient and helpful. We will return next year.

This is a lovely apartment, very spacious and well equipped. The kitchen had good appliances and was had lots of plates, cutlery, glasses and mugs which was really helpful. The beds were very comfortable and the views and location were great. Safe parking.

Lovely bright, light accommodation with amazing views over the sea. So peaceful and relaxing to watch the tides ebb and flow .

Seashells and its location are so great you will want to move in.

Seashells excellent location just feet from the sea

Superb location,lovely apartment,safe parking,cannot fault it.

We were particularly impressed by how clean and welcoming the apartment was when we arrived and by the nice little notes dotted throughout explaining how things worked.

Seashells is a beautiful apartment in a fantastic location. I can’t recommend it enough.

This was the second time we have stayed at Seashells. The apartment is very warm and comfortable, well equipped and all to an extremely high standard. We hope to visit again.

Had a lovely stay at the apartment, it was great to be able to hear the waves crashing on the beach. The weather was wonderful and we made the most of it with a walk to Appledore and a bike ride Braunton to Torrington on the Tarka Trail. Found a great bike hire in Barnstaple - Bike It. Friendly staff and reasonable rates. This is the third property we have visited with Classic Cottages and as with the others the quality of the accommodation is probably the best we have come across.

Overall a very good property and holiday. Only bug-bear was the lack of a proper shower in the en-suite.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks for your review of Seashells and it's wonderful to hear you had a great holiday overall. The en suite has a bath with hand shower attachment for those lovely long soaks(mentioned in description) but there is also a family shower-room further along on the same floor. Bryony, Customer Support

We enjoyed our holidays in this really very pretty apartment very much. The view over the sea is really wonderful. The apartment is equipped very well and the beds are comfortable. It was very clean. We really liked the pretty decoration in a maritime style which gives the apartment a very personal touch.

Got to be the best place to stay in Westward Ho! A real home away from home - not like a normal rental. If desired you could park your car up and never use it again until you leave (convenience stores and excellent restaurants on your doorstep plus a wonderful beach) but why would you with so many excellent places to visit a short drive away.

We have been to Seashells many times are we fortunate to have a week during the really hot weather so spent most of the time on the beach/in the sea. The property is as wonderful as ever and immaculate thanks to Rosie. The addition of the screen in the lounge was certainly welcome when the sun was so fierce. The only thing I would ask is that a lighter weight duvet be used in the summer months.

Another amazing holiday in what we now consider a home from home. So comfortable and relaxing. Everything needed is in apartment and the views are to die for. Loads of restaurants and supermarkets just steps away and loads of places nearby to visit. Will definitely be back. Love it. Love it. Love it.

Seashells is a beautiful appartment in a fantastic location. The views are amazing and waking up to the sound of the sea is a real treat.

Seashells is a smart, comfortable apartment with a wonderful view from the sitting area. It is very well equipped and maintained.

Wonderful property with first class views and great quality furnishings. Everything you need is here so you can get on and enjoy your holiday in this beautiful location.

We a lovely few days at Seashells. This is a modern two bedroom apartment on two floors overlooking the sea. The apartment is furnished and equipped to a high standard and spotlessly clean. Private secure parking on site is an added bonus. We give this this apartment a 5 star rating.

Amazing apartment, we had a really good stay.

A perfect place to stay! Very convenient, very comfortable, beautifully presented, & wonderful views.

The property was stunning in every respect. The location and views are simply amazing and every detail had been considered in furnishing and equipping the apartment. It was like walking into a show room....but with a very homely and welcoming feel.

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at Seashells. The apartment is absolutely brilliant and it is clear that a lot of thought has been giving to the decor to make it a truly wonderful place to stay. It is well equipped with everything you could possibly need, making it a home away from home. The location is perfect too and the view is breath taking. Thank you so much for fantastic holiday!

Seashells is set in a fabulous location and totally captures the 'by the seaside' theme with beautiful decor and amazing sea views on two floors. We had a great holiday and very memorable experience at Seashells.

Well equipped and spotlessly clean. Really comfortable 6' bed. Fantastic location with loads of entertainment within close proximity. Plenty of local restaurants and food shops, most serving good quality produce.

Seashells is a fabulous appartment with a light airy feel. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

As you have previously published my comments on this cottage, cannot add anything further.

Had an amazing week in an amazing apartment. It was our second visit, the last time was October two years ago so weather not great either time but it just didn't matter. Watching and hearing the sea in such a homely, comfy, cosy apartment is something special. Plenty of restaurants and shops within minutes walk and of course the penny slots - hours of fun. Plenty of towns nearby to visit also. It was our 10th anniversary and my birthday and it made the occasion special and romantic and made me realise how lucky I am to have my partner. Thank you very much Seashells and Classic. We can't wait to go back.

Will definitely be returning to this beautiful apartment. Everything about it was faultless. It was so comfortable, beautifully decorated and well equipped throughout. The beds were particularly comfortable.Little touches made us feel very welcome and at home. Felt as if the owner was delighted to be sharing their home with us rather than just renting it out to us. The views of the bay were stunning. The location perfect. Thank you for a lovely little holiday

Everything within the property was of a very high quality. We would always be happy to give a good review

Lovely homely Appartment equipped to very high standard.We stayed during severe storm and waves from balcony were spectacular .

This was my second visit to Seashells Apartments in Westward Ho, my family and myself were once again delighted with everything the apartment had to offer from the high standards, everything we could need to make our holiday both comfortable and relaxing within beautiful surroundings and spectacular views worth every mile and traffic jam it took to get from Scotland. I would like to thank the owners and housekeeper for providing beautiful surrounds to enjoy a holiday that was everything I remembered from previous visit (that doesn't happen often ) thank you. Looking forward to returning to a place that has made both parents and children happy a treasured time!!

That the accommodation is tastefully furnished and comfortable. That the support staff are all very friendly and approachable and quick to respond if needed.

A fantastic appartment with beautiful views. I would highly recommend it.

It is a beautiful apartment in a fantastic location. It was wonderful to have a view of the sea and to be able to watch the tides come in and out.

Beautifully decorated and maintained with everything you would need for a home from home.

Highly recommend this apartment, immaculately presented and very well equipped. Great views across the beach and out to Lundy Island. Beach very sandy and superb for learning to surf. You will not need to leave Westward Ho! Classic Cottages provided excellent information and support. Thank you we will definitely visit again.

The seashells was a fantastic relaxing experience enjoyed by all family , and ambience just perfect for a relaxing holiday well worth the journey from Scotland , a trip we will definitely make again . Thank you to owners and housekeeper for the the high standards in detail and cleanliness everything about the Seashells had WOW factor. Even the not so generous weather could not put a dampener on our stay as views from balconies more than made up for lack of sunshine. can't wait till next year.

Wonderful property. Didn't want to come home.

We had a very enjoyable stay in an apartment which was furnished to a very high standard (every credit must be given to the owners and caretaker). Views were exceptional whatever the weather! It would have be good to have had blinds in the landward windows of the kitchen/diner area for privacy at night. That aside, a perfect location for a break on Devon's Atlantic coast. We will probably book this cottage again. Thank you.

We would give the cottage a 5 star rating.

A fabulous apartment with a wonderful view. We had a very relaxing and comfortable stay.

wonderful, clean.airy , bright, comfortable, modern apartment. good walks nearby.We had a fantastic time

Very comfortable apartment with high-spec fixtures and fittings (and a particularly well-equipped kitchen). Great location for beach/shops/restaurants. Spotlessly clean and comfy bed.

Amazing apartment with stunning views. Very clean, tidy and comfortable.

Fantastic apartment in a great location with a wonderful sea view. Equipped with everything you would want. Would have preferred a softer bed to sleep on but otherwise faultless. Will be booking for 2015.

Thanks for your review of Seashells, we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Just to confirm, the Owners have now purchased a mattress topper and a new mattress for the bed in the master bedroom (end Sept 2014) to give a slightly softer option - thanks for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Support

Can't recommend the apartment too highly, excellent facilities and location.

Stylish, modern, comfortable apartment, in a great location.

A comfortable apartment in a superb location. Seashells was well equipped and exceptionally clean.

An excellent apartment - spacious, warm & very comfortable - which provided a great base to explore the many local opportunities as well as a welcoming facility to entertain our friends & relatives. We would not hesitate to recommend it to others. V & N South Lakeland

Seashells was the perfect holiday home, beautifully clean, spectacular views and so close to all the amenities. Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended

This is a fantastic modern apartment with beautiful sea views perfectly situated for a beach holiday. This is a great apartment for families and it has all the little extra touches which make it seem like a luxury hotel. The 2 bathrooms and washer dryer become essentia when surfing or on the beach all day . The decor is just as bright and fresh as the pictures show and even grey days look beautiful from seaviews in the lounge and master bedroom. We have just returned from our third summer holiday and still love this apartment as much as wneh we first discovered it.

Excellent location and superb facilities. Thoroughly recommend.

Sea Shells is an excellent property and it would be difficult to find another property to better it. It is well located as a base to explore North Devon and within easy reach of Clovelly and Appledore as well as the RHS gardens near Gt Torrington and other places.

Wonderful apartment, amazing views of the dramatic weather and beautiful sunsets. We will come back again as soon as possible.

Location was excellent, fantastic views. Well equipped and furnished apartment would recommend it and would definitely return again
