A Stunning North Devon stay at Woolacombe Bay
Nestled in the heart of rural Woolacombe Bay just a stone’s throw away from the ocean is the contemporary luxury apartments is Byron Woolacombe Holidays. These gorgeous apartments are perfect for a long-weekend break with friends, family, or loved ones, and the setting couldn’t be more divine as it’s next to three miles of golden sand in North Devon.
Just a few minutes walk from Woolacombe Beach and within easy reach of three more amazing beaches at Putsborough, Barricane and Coombesgate, Byron is also the perfect holiday base for dog owners. Many of Byron’s contemporary holiday apartments are pet-friendly. Just look out for the paw print when booking.
On arrival at 18 Woolacombe East we were blown away by the sheer size of the apartment, three bedrooms with two generously sized double beds, and one twin room, two large bathrooms, a huge lounge and dining area with every amenity that you could possibly need from board games to champagne glasses and even a bread bin – they’ve thought of absolutely every need, which makes it feel like a home from home.
Don’t even get me started on the outside terrace with a jacuzzi overlooking the ocean and a huge dining table that could fit about 15 people ideal for a spring or summer night.
This trip can be made even more special by local partners, whom you can book in additional ‘add-ons’ to have their arrival. We arrived at a delectable Coastal Cooks breakfast box but you can even book a private chef whilst there alongside a tantalising Chichester Hampers cookie box, plus a bottle of sparkling which got us ready for the perfect long weekend.
With breathtaking views across Woolacombe Bay, voted The Times Best Beach 2021, each modern apartment at Byron benefits from its own private outdoor space via a balcony, patio or terrace. Not to mention, exclusive access to a host of on-site leisure facilities including an indoor heated swimming pool, games room, sauna, gym and treatment room, and priority access to the on-site family restaurant. Ideal for beach lovers, these top-end apartments also offer an outdoor surf shower with an adapted head for dogs to wash off sandy paws, and secure storage for guests’ surfboards, beach gear and even bikes.
If you’d like to sample yoga, pilates or meditation, we’d highly recommend booking in a session with SGP Pilates (sense greater peace), as you can have a 1-1 private session or even yoga on the beach which is absolutely magical. Sue Dawson is an absolute joy of a teacher who draws on her skills and wisdom acquired through years of teaching, training and life experience. She’s got so much knowledge and a really inspirational story.
With properties ranging from one bedroom to four bedrooms including the penthouse, you’ve got so many options and after this stay, I’ll undoubtedly be coming back annually to make my way through these fantastically thought-out stays. You don’t often get this level of attention to detail at apartment lets, which is undeniably refreshing.
