The dining table seats 4 and the compact but well fitted kitchen houses all the usual appliances with a 2 ring hob. The windows in the kitchen have super views over to the sea and coastline and surrounding countryside, we love this apartment! There are two good sized bedrooms, the master has a double bed with a small built in wardrobe, cupboards and chest of drawers. The view from the unusual low window and skylight Velux are really pretty. The en-suite has a shower, WC and wash basin. The twin bedroom has a big skylight window with blind and built in wardrobe cupboard. The beds are 3ft comfy divans divided by a bedside unit with lamp. This room has the exclusive use of the family shower room as the master bedroom has en-suite.One of the key features of this beautiful apartment is the delightful gardens and summerhouse which has power and light so is fantastic for storing boards and beach stuff and sitting to enjoy the view day or evening. The patio in front of the summerhouse is great for sunbathing or to enjoy that well deserved glass of wine! This apartment has the biggest outdoor area allocated to it. Although it is not directly off the apartment it makes a special addition to the holiday home as not many of our apartments offer a garden, patio and summerhousePlease note this property is one of nearly 60 other places in Woolacombe featured on my own website called Holiday Home Hunter where you can find more info, updated availability, prices and book and pay online.

Location description from owner

The England region

The North Devon Area Gateway to the Heritage Coast. In an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling snugly amongst the rugged cliffs of the majestic Atlantic coast lies the town of Ilfracombe. The beautiful and breathtaking scenery of the North Devon coast surrounds this charming natural harbour.

The resort has been popular since the 1830’s when the Victorians started to visit the area and much of the architecture today is a reminder of the Victorian era. Many of the large, elegant buildings, have since been converted into quality hotels.

The town has grown up around an ancient harbour where today fishing vessels share anchorage with pleasure craft, and from where the M.S. Oldenburg regularly sails to Lundy Island, twelve miles off the coastline. With its array of shops, cafes and bars, Ilfracombe has an almost continental atmosphere.

Ilfracombe is the base for many varied festivals. The town has a growing reputation for its floral displays and has been the proud winner of many coveted awards in the “Britain in Bloom” Competition. Each year the streets are awash with colour from June to October with baskets, tubs and planters everywhere.

Things To Do North Devon has a wealth of things to do during your stay. With some of the best beaches in Europe, including some of the finest surfing beaches, you can either relax and sunbath or take part in exhilarating water sports.

In the Area

Mortehoe and Woolacombe are within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), providing wonderful walks including the beautiful South West Coast Path. In early May you can join in guided walks in the North Devon and Exmoor Walking Festival.

The Tarka Trail (180 miles of walking and cycling routes through stunning countryside) offers the energetic a perfect opportunity to explore the highways and byways of North Devon. You can download a range of easy-to-follow cycle route to print out and enjoy.

Exmoor National Park also offers the walker a unique landscape to explore with added bonus horse trekking expeditions for those with equestrian interests.

For total peace and quiet and a truly memorable experience there is Lundy Island, a three mile long island, 12 miles off the North Devon coast. A paradise for wildlife watchers it also has a marine reserve which you can dive off.

North Devon also has several golf courses, with the champoinship courses at Saunton and the Royal course at Westward Ho! Locally we have courses at Easewell and Willingcott.

Gardens

The mild climate in North Devon means we have some wonderful gardens to visit. Marwood Gardens is a delight. Arlington Court (NT) has large gardens and the house of the Chichester family. Docton Mill in Hartland is in a delighful valley. RHS Rosemoor gardens at Great Torrington have matured into a selection of specialist areas as well as the original gardens.

Activities

For the energetic why not have a go at Quad Biking, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Indoor Climbing, Paintball and Sailing.

Attractions

The area also has a wealth of attractions including, The Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park, Milky Way, The Big Sheep, Dartington Crystal, Torrington 1646, Clovelly village and Watermouth Castle.

I hope this has helped you find things you would like to do while staying in North Devon.

Esplanade

Situated in North Devon, along England’s western coastline, lie some of Europe’s finest and cleanest beaches, ideal for both families with children and water sports enthusiasts. The village of Woolacombe can be found along this spectacular golden coastline of soft sandy beaches, flanked by the dramatic headlands of Baggy Point and Morte Point.

Almost three miles of golden sands stretch from Putsborough in the south to Woolacombe village itself offering plenty of space for everybody. Bathing is particularly safe in the shallow waters which are patrolled by lifeguards during the main summer season.

The small settlement of Mortehoe is a pretty stone built village mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The village features several tea rooms and pubs, a thirteenth century church and Mortehoe Heritage Centre which recounts the areas rich maritime history. Mortehoe is also the starting point for many scenic walks along this dramatic stretch of coastline. Just north of the village and reached only on foot, is Rockham Beach lying at the base of the 100 ft cliff, an ideal location for a peaceful day on the beach. A picturesque village on a surf spot, what more could you want!

“Quirky but Modern”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

We have stayed here for the last couple of years. Great location close to beach easy to walk in to town. The sail loft is mainly open plan. The beams can be low in places but you soon get used to that. The storage in the bedroom needs to be greatly improved as we were living out of our suitcases !! No phone signal and limited wi fi at times. The TV is very small and could be bigger. The bedding seemed to be old as the poppers would not do up ! The garden area consisted of rusty dirty chairs not appealing to sit outside needs updating. Lots of steps and quite steep hill to get to the property as its located on the top floor it will definitely keep you fit

Thanks for taking the time to review The Sail Loft, as you say some things might not be for everyone but with feedback like this at least future guests can consider the pros and cons.

“Paradise with a View”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

The Sail Loft is the converted top floor penthouse of a renovated Victorian house set at the top of a private and recently tarmaced private lane at the back of the WatersMeet Hotel overlooking Coombsgate beach. We booked this break through 'Holiday Home Hunter' who provide bespoke breaks in luxury properties within Woolacombe and the local area. The property has fantastic panoramic views of the coastline and Lundy, the property is extremely modern and has been adapted within the roof space to incorporate open plan living with plenty of space and a modern kitchen with views. Both bedrooms are spacious and have the luxury of an ensuite with shower and bathroom with over the bath shower. A lovely L shaped leather sofa gives the option to admire the views through French doors and to take in sea air. Although the Sail Loft is accessed by a series of external stairs we found the access easy and also necessity to be able to have such a fantastic vista. The outside of the property is very rustic however I understand that it is due some modernisation to enable a better out door seating area, nearer the flat, however there is a dedicated seating area and summerhouse for soul use at the lower level. The parking is very private and spacious. We will definitely be returning to this property and have used 'Holiday Home Hunter' for many years now due to the quality of their properties and service they provide, we will back.

Thanks for taking the time to send this review, your comments are great for future guests and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Always welcome in Woolacombe!
