There really is a wealth of things to see and do in the West Country. Not only does it have some of the most breathtaking scenery in the United Kingdom but it has several award winning beaches to relax on.
The climate during the summer is often impressive as the Gulf Stream warms the seas in the area so this means excellent surfing and other water based pursuits.

Both Exmoor and Dartmoor provide wonderful walking and horse riding opportunities with breathtaking countryside, peace and tranquility.

I have stayed in all the apartments in this complex and all I can say is that they are great. They are all finished to a very high standard. Living rooms are comfortable with plenty of space, sofas and table and chairs. They all have large flat screen tvs and wi-fi. The kitchens are well appointed with everything you will need. Bathrooms are also good, some with jacuzzi baths, and some with huge powerful showers. Bedrooms are all large with twin or kingsize beds with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space.
All the rooms are very spacious and light, some with a view of the Hoe and the sea.

Great apartment, well stocked and perfect location on the Hoe.
Only issue was the narrow stairs to the penthouse and the long climb up but once there the apartment was perfect, a great stay... more
