This two bedroomed apartment with distant sea views is on a small exclusive site between Westward Ho! and Northam Burrows Country Park with private access to the Northam Burrows which is part of the UK's first designated UNESCO Biosphere which boasts sand dunes, salt marsh, grassland and rocky shore and is teeming with wildlife. Royal North Devon Golf Club can rightly claim to be the cradle of English Golf. Founded in 1864, it is the oldest golf course in the country and is regarded as the St Andrews of the South. The golf course is as tough as any of the UK’s more famous links layouts and has recently been placed in Golf World's "Top 100 Courses in the World" that a golfer “must play”.

The two tastefully decorated bedrooms are on the ground floor, both with ensuite shower rooms and the master bedroom with access to the patio area with table and chairs and hot tub. Carpeted stairs lead up to the open plan kitchen/dining/living area with distant sea views across the Northam Burrows. The kitchen is beautifully designed to make the most of the space and is very well-equipped with everything you’ll need to rustle up a delicious evening meal to enjoy on the balcony. The living area has two comfy sofas positioned to enjoy the large 49" Smart TV complete with sound bar and leads out to the balcony area with table and chairs, an ideal place to enjoy your morning coffee or to watch the sunset over the Burrows.

Situated a short walk from the picturesque seaside village of Westward Ho!, which has everything you need for a great family holiday, with a range of food outlets catering for all tastes (and some award-winning cakes!) and seaside shops to explore. The beach offers lots of free entertainment for children whether it is looking in the rock pools, playing in the surf, building sand castles or flying kites there is plenty for all to enjoy. Venture further afield and explore North Devon with attractions to suit all tastes including Tapeley Park, The Big Sheep, The Milky Way, RHS Rosemoor Gardens and much more.
