Woody Bay, Exmoor, Barnstaple, North Devon

You love us

  • Agnes was a great host. She welcomed us to the flat and helped us store our bicycles, despite us arriving much later than we thought we would. The apartment is beautiful and very well set up. I would recommend to anybody looking for a great getaway near the sea!

  • I was looking for a birthday treat for my boyfriend and Wringapeak fitted the bill and did not disappoint. We arrived later than we had anticipated but Agnes was very accommodating, the apartment was beautifully clean and spotless with a real eye for interior design. We arrived in the dark so unfortunately we couldn’t see the view so slept with the curtains open so we woke to the most spectacular view of the bay. The bed was very comfortable so a very good night sleep by us both with no light pollution, so star gazing is a must. We are caffeine addicts so the array of complementry quality teas and coffees were very much appreciated. We are very much an outdoor couple and planned to do lots of walking, but we couldn’t bring ourselves to leave the comfort of the apartment and its heart warming view, we did however managed to take a very short walk to woody bay with its beautiful waterfall which is a must and a wonderful photo opportunity. I would highly recommend Agnes and the apartment to everyone WE LOVED IT THANK YOU. And yes the shower with a (yes I will say it again) fantastic view.

    A very very big thank you from Ian and myself you really did make a weekend to remember. X

  • Agnes was wonderfully welcoming and the accommodation was even more amazing than we could have expected! The rooms are all done out with great taste in a modern, clean and beautifully thought out manner. The whole accommodation is spotlessly clean, cosy and warm. The view out of the living room, bathroom and bedroom on the sea-facing side is simply breathtaking. Exmoor itself is a stunning location filled with rugged, raw beauty, it has to be seen to be believed.

  • Agnes couldn’t have been more welcoming. The flat is as described on airbnb, beautifully appointed, comfortable and with wonderful views. I was so impressed I’ve recommended the place to a few friends. The walking is excellent with paths from the door. Only 10 mins from the flat is a secluded beach surrounded by lush vegetation reminiscent of a jungle.

  • We had a fantastic two-night stay in this modern, beautiful apartment. It really is as good as the photos suggest. The whole apartment was immaculately clean throughout, leaving us to make oursleves at home and take in the stunning views. Everything looks brand new and the showers were amazing. Agnes was great and really has thought of everything you could need on your stay. Really couldn’t ask for anything more. A top apartment – we would definitely return. Thank you.

  • Staying at Wringapeak was a wonderful experience. From the views over Woody Bay in the main room to the attention to detail everything was great. Our hostess Agnes has made this a home from home but without the clutter. It comes with everything you could possibly need on holiday and included a lot, and we mean a lot, of little touches to make our stay great. Wine and beer was left and whilst we didn’t drink it we appreciated the thought. Everything was absolutely spotless and most was very new. If you like music the sound system was excellent as was the list of prerecorded movies on the Sky+ HD box. If that wasn’t enough then Sky movies was also available. The beach is not too far down the road and is worth a trip to see the Victorian bathing pool and lime kiln. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Wringapeak and meeting such a lovely family and would absolutely recommend it to anyone. Oh and did we mention the view from the shower?! Spectacular!

  • The apartment is beautiful. The views onto the sea are truly breathtaking and Agnes’ impeccable eye for elegance translates very well into the design. I would highly recommend.

  • A place very much worth visiting. A walk I particularly enjoyed was from the apartment to a country pub a couple of miles away, with sea views most of the way, a water fountain to cross and enough natural entertainment along the way for the kids.

  • Amazing apartment in a beautiful area, the hosts are pretty cool too can’t wait to stay again….

  • Superb apartment in a beautiful house tucked away among the woods in Devon. The view of Woody Bay is stunning from the living room, as well as the bathroom. There are great walking routes around too. Agnes and Dave are the best hosts, warm, friendly and helpful. I strongly recommend Wringapeak Apartment.

  • We stayed here in mid May 14 and loved it! The views are spectacular and I could have sat on that long bench seat and an endless cup of coffee for many, many hours.

    The twisty country roads might challenge some drivers, but take it easy and you’ll be okay.

    Great setting for country walks or watching a storm through the very large windows.

    Gloriously comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and ace shower.

    Bit of an odd one this but this apartment loo has to have the best view in the whole of the West Country!
