Sofa beds available to taking occupancy to 18

Surf Bay is a great option for friends or 3 generation groups to enjoy a fabulous holiday near the sea. One big plus is the fact that the the smaller Surf Bay Lodge offers choice and a bit of privacy for those who want to be part of the gang but would like somewhere quiet to retreat.

The impressive gated entrance leads to secure parking and fabulous accommodation inside and out. Relaxed seating next to the outdoor heated pool offers a lovely spot for guests to gather in order to plan the day's activities. The luxury hot tub is perfect for relaxing at the end of a busy day out.

With the facilities on offer at Surf Bay, it is hardly surprising that many guests are happy not to go far at all. Hours of fun can be spent playing in the pool, topped off by an evening barbecue on the patio and another dip in the hot tub bubbles. The new games and cinema room is where the youngsters might head after food to play pool or table tennis before settling down to watch a movie. On warmer evenings it is really pleasant sitting outside on the patio, otherwise the lounge is a comfy space to chill out and watch some TV.

Bedrooms are a convenient mix of kings and superkings that can be configured as twins, important for a mixed gathering. 3 of the rooms can be entered from the pool side through French doors and 2 share a ground floor bathroom. All are smartly decorated with stylish soft furnishings. Bathrooms are plentiful across the 2 properties.

Westward Ho and the South West Coastal Path can easily be reached within 5 minutes, popular for a full beach day in a small seaside resort and a true family friendly destination. Appledore itself is a delightful fishing village full of pretty houses and bobbing boats, the place to jump on a ferry across to neighbouring Instow. Bideford is definitely worth a trip too with its quayside bars and restaurants, ideal for lunch out and picking up some local produce for supper.
