Superb setting and views , lovely accommodation , breakfast and hosts . Easy walk to village centre along the valley. Will definitely stay here again next time we visit Woolacombe . You need to book in advance as it is very popular with repeat guests and it also has two spacious family chalet style rooms. Plenty of onsite parking

Stayed at surf view for 4 nights. Shirley and Steve are great b&b very clean and breakfast was lovely. Short walk to beach was fine even for oldies like me. Beach is great. Only thing for me not many shops to browse around. But would go again and book this b&b.

The rooms were very comfortable, immaculately clean and included many thoughtful little touches. Breakfasts were superb!

We had a week at the surf view for a family holiday and we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. Steve and Shirley are absolute gems and nothing is too much trouble, be it drying our towels off or giving advice on where to go and which road to take. We stayed in a family room which...

Surf View Guest house really deserves the 5 star rating every ones gives it. It is in a lovely location with a short pretty stroll into Woolacombe and the house itself is impeccably clean and nicely dressed. Our hosts were really lovely with nothing being too much trouble. We also thought it was incredibly good value for high season. We...

This was our second visit to Surf View and it was just as amazing as our first visit last year! Our room was very bright and airy and spotless, and the table and chairs outside the room was very useful for sitting in the sun and watching the waves at Woolacombe Bay. Nothing was too much trouble for Shirley and...
