Pebbles is in unique position on the coast line at Westward Ho. It enjoys far reaching views across Bideford Bay towards Lundy Island and is located at one end of the two mile golden sand beach at Westward Ho! where, at high tide, the waves lap right below the large balcony which runs the whole width of the apartment.
Pebbles is finished to a very high standard throughout. Also as the sea is constantly changing with the weather and tides, the sea views are amazing at any time of the day or month and so whatever the weather, it makes the apartment a wonderful place to stay in any season.
The large balcony has furniture - perfect for casual dining or just enjoying an evening drink whilst watching the sunset over the Atlantic.

Devonshire is a maritime county, 280 miles in circumference - 130 miles of which are coastal. It has a unique and varied landscape including some of the most stunning coastlines and beaches in Britain, the rolling hills of Tarka Country, and the wilds of remote Exmoor. North Devon has a lot of history and has long been a favourite holiday area due to the range of activities on offer.
The area is also home to many Myths & Legends including:
Lundy Island off the North Devon coast, is reputed to be the entrance to Annwn, a place in Welsh mythology where souls that had departed this world went to. It was essentially a world of delights and eternal youth, where disease was absent and food abundant. Now a National Trust property, it is still a favourite place to visit, Ferry crossing available from Bideford or Ilfracombe.
Chambercombe Manor, near Ilfracombe, is reputedly one of the most haunted dwellings in the UK. One of several legends that attempts to explain the mysterious female skeletal remains at Chambercombe Manor found in 1865, is that they are of the owners' daughter who was found shipwrecked on nearby rocks. Her footsteps are heard walking along corridors, and a low moaning has been heard emanating from the former secret room where her remains were found.
Bideford saw the last ever hangings for witchcraft in England. The Bideford Witch Trial saw Temperance Lloyd, Mary Trembles and Susannah Edwards tried and punished in 1682. Nowadays Bideford is home to one of the best New Year’s Eve parties in Britain.
Many TV dramas have been filmed in the region, most recently BBC1's drama, Sense and Sensibility,which was shot in the Hartland area of North Devon.
