  • For that extra special touch why not treat your loved ones (and yourself) to a luxury hamper, made in Woolacombe, plastic-free and with freshly made North Devon produce placed in your apartment on arrival.

restaurant recommendations

Woolacombe village offers a variety of pubs, restaurants and cafés for you to enjoy!

  • There are a number of great restaurants & pubs close to Byron. The Jube, The Tides Inn and Bar Electric are all within Woolacombe with varied menus – perhaps good for lunch out or a casual dinner. 
  • For fine dining we recommend The Beach House Restaurant & Bar which offers lunch and dinner with a menu focusing on using local produce and seafood only from the best quality suppliers and freshest ingredients available for each and every dish, all served in a cosy and laid back environment. 
  • Miss Feas in Mortehoe is a lovely to walk to get there especially as you can also explore Morte Point close by. They serve more upmarket food then your usual Woolacombe café and enjoyed by many of our guests.
  • A real must do would be ‘Curry on the Beach’ on Barricane Beach, running most nights throughout Spring/Summer it’s a very special place to sit and enjoy your dinner! You do need to bring your own tipple if drinking and a picnic blanket but it’s a wonderful way to enjoy the sunset and a really good authentic curry!
  • Or if you prefer why not make the most of your luxury apartment and truly relax in the hands of a private local chef with Coastal Cooks!
  • For more information and local recommendations please visit our restaurant recommendations page!

Wonderful apartment. Well-equipped and very comfortable, especially the beds. The large terrace was great, a real sun trap with the added plus of sea views. We would definitely book again.

Gillian, stayed in 1 Middlecombe 28th May – June 4th 2022

We had a very enjoyable stay at No.1 Challacombe. The apartment was very spacious and very well equipped with everything you’d need for your stay. The views are great from the apartment and the ground floor location with access to the communal courtyard worked perfectly for us. The location is great, just a short walk to the beach and a two minute walk to all the bars and restaurants. We’d definitely look to stay here again.

Liz, stayed in 1 Challacombe 29th May – 3rd 2021

Our stay at Byron exceeded my expectations as the apartment was very spacious, well-designed and convenient. Parking was so easy, and the lift really helped with unpacking and packing ready to go. The swimming pool was an added bonus for our beach holiday and lovely and fresh.

Lizzie, stayed in 5 Putsborough 28th May – 3rd 2021

Excellent property. Perfectly located and suited our family. Enjoyed the welcome supplies- tea bags etc as we arrived late at night. Friendly, helpful staff on reception. Thank you for a great stay!
