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

August 2020

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

March 2020

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.

December 2019

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.

September 2019

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

June 2019

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

June 2019

Seashells excellent location just feet from the sea

May 2019

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

May 2019

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.

April 2019

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

March 2019

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.

October 2018

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.

August 2018

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

August 2018

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.

June 2018

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.

June 2018

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.

April 2018

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.

April 2018

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.

March 2018

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

February 2018

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.

January 2018

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.

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

October 2017

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.

July 2017

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!

May 2017

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.

April 2017

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

April 2017

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

January 2017

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.

October 2016

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

September 2016

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

August 2016

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

July 2016

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!!

June 2016

February 2016

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

August 2015

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.

July 2015

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.

June 2015

Wonderful property. Didn't want to come home.

May 2015

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.

April 2015

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

October 2014

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

September 2014

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.

Reply from Classic Cottages

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

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

September 2013

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

August 2013

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.

July 2013

Excellent location and superb facilities. Thoroughly recommend.

June 2013

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.

May 2013

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

May 2013
