TARTOOGA BEACH HOUSE has 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6 people with the added luxury of underfloor heating, wood burning stove, free WiFi access and parking, always a plus point in Woolacombe.


The main room of the house is divided by a large central oak post with the kitchen along one side and a comfortable sitting area on the other. The room features wall to wall oak flooring, white walls and large windows which enjoy the morning and afternoon sunshine. French windows lead outside up to the garden and deck area. Inside is a large brand new sofa and an oak chest serves as a coffee table. A wood burning stove is available to use in case of chilly evenings. Logs are kindly supplied. There is a flatscreen TV with Freeview, DVD player, DVD selection and WIFI access is included, plus a range of books for holiday reading.


The kitchen fills one side of the open plan living area. Featuring solid oak worktops, Belfast sink and range style cooker, the style is modern yet classic, functional and comfortable. The well equipped kitchen contains the following appliances: Dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, double oven, grill, electric hob, cafetiere, as well as a good supply of quality pots, pans, crockery and cutlery, plus a few essentials like a jug for Pimms!, perfect for those post surf sundowners on the deck. The kitchen table will comfortably seat 6 for meals, and extends to seat 8 people, with an additional breakfast bar for quick bites. In addition, a high chair can be provided at a small rental cost if required.


The TARTOOGA BEACH HOUSE has 3 bedrooms. The 2 main bedrooms are up a set of stairs from the living room, accessed off a landing with a large window with a sea view – the best place for checking the surf from inside the house.

Fully re-fitted as part of the refurbishment in 2011, the bathroom is clean, simple and modern. With all-white bathroom fittings, there is a bath with shower over, toilet and sink, plus a number of shelves and wicker baskets for storage. This is also the location of the airing cupboard.


The TARTOOGA BEACH HOUSE deck and garden is the main feature of the house. The unique layout of the building places the deck on top of the house - the elevated position offers an exceptional vantage point. This is the highlight of the house offering 180 degree jaw-dropping views over Woolacombe beach towards Putsborough and out to the end of Baggy Point.

The large glass fronted deck is the perfect place to spend a quiet afternoon in the hammock or enjoy cold beer or glass of wine in the evening. With garden table, chairs and parasol, you might find yourself spending many hours out here.

In the garden you will find the Moroccan snug and a large lawn area for kids to play on. The garden has been child-proofed as much as possible. There is also a fully maintained vegetable patch - please feel free to help yourself to any veg that is in season.

From the back of the garden a lockable gate offers access to a footpath that leads to Sunnyside Road or Sandy Lane – a handy cut through to the shops or beach.

The North Devon Coast: For spectacular scenery and beautiful beaches whatever the season, there's no better place in England than North Devon coast and in particular Croyde. The beaches are recognised as possibly some of the finest and cleanest in Europe - with two miles of soft golden sand, plenty of rock pools and amazing surf.

The coastline is as rugged as it is beautiful dotted with magnificent cliffs, tiny cove and picturesque harbours. It was once the haunt of smugglers, pirates and wreckers and the fascinating history is retold in many small museums along the coast. Today visitors who love Henry Williamson's famous Tarka the Otter can retrace Tarka's journey by following the Tarka Trail.

Along the coastline surrounding a natural harbour is Ilfracombe with its Victorian architecture, Esplanade and famous Tunnels Beach. The harbour is always busy with fishing boats sailing in and out together with the paddle steamer Balmoral which offers day trips to Lundy Island.

"Beautiful Accommodation in a Beautiful Location"

We were really impressed with this holiday home, the number of steps to the front door were a slight challenge, especially with luggage but the standard of accommodation, the central location for the beach and the town and of course the view from the terrace made it worth it! Our only slight issue was that there appeared to be nowhere to dry washing, beach towels etc - some sort of airer or rotary line would have been really useful! This said we would not hesitate to book this again.
