Property Description


I promise you, you will say WOW when you walk into this stunning apartment! Very rarely do apartments in this block come up for sale and that is without doubt testimony to the fact that you will really struggle to find a better waterside location. This impeccably designed and purpose built apartment has plenty of space, approximately 110m2 (1,184ft2), and sits in a superb position within the building, with a sunny southerly aspect, and located on the ground floor. Undoubtedly, the highlight is the truly magnificent setting and outstanding and completely uninterrupted far reaching, stunning views across the whole of Woolacombe Bay and the rugged coastline, taking in the 2 1/2 miles of the golden sand main beach out to Putsborough and Baggy Point, on to Hartland Point and across the Bay to Lundy Island and Morte Point. The sunny, elevated location offers a quieter position away from the hustle and bustle of the village centre yet still allows easy access to the local amenities, the picturesque walks along the South West Coastal Footpath and, of course, the fabulous golden sand beaches. The property provides a great vantage point for the stunning sunsets that are regular throughout the year.

The imposing yet attractive building was built back in 2002 and is a high quality purpose built development. The property sits in large privately owned grounds approached via a driveway and located on the water’s edge, immediately adjacent to the South West Coastal Footpath which meanders its way through the neighbouring National Trust headland. The closest beaches are Grunta, a quieter rocky cove, and Combesgate with its golden sand and plethora of rock pools to explore; both are within a few hundred metres of the apartment. The centre of the village of Mortehoe is just over 500 metres away with the further amenities and beaches in Woolacombe also within easy reach. Within the grounds there is plenty of on-site parking with each apartment having an allocated space but plenty of additional spaces for visitors too.

The current owners purchased the property from new and utilised it as their own second home. The apartment is ideal as a high quality holiday home or holiday let but equally would afford a very comfortable and low maintenance permanent home as well. The building is well-maintained and efficiently run by the Management Company, which is made up of the 14 apartment owners. 3 Castle Rock is conveniently located on the ground floor with easy access to the building from the nearby allocated car parking space.

There is the immediate feeling of space upon entering the apartment into the sizeable entrance hall which has a couple of handy storage cupboards and the video door entry system and intercom. There is attractive solid wood floor throughout the apartment (except the two bathrooms and kitchen). From the hallway, your eye is immediately drawn through the double doors that lead into the main living room and out across the room to wall of glass which lures you into the fabulous views of the sea and coastline. The living room offers space for dining and lounging and is a hugely impressive 31ft long by 17ft wide room which is accentuated by the fully glazed five-sided bay window which provides the real wow factor to the room and perfectly frames the spectacular uninterrupted vista across the whole of Woolacombe Bay and the stunning coastline. It really is very difficult to put into words how impressive the views are! Double doors open from the bay out onto a private paved patio which provides plenty of space for outdoor furniture and perfect for an al-fresco meal or sunbathing.

Moving through the apartment, the kitchen is fitted with a range of modern base and wall units and is equipped with various built-in appliances. There is a central island unit which houses a gas hob and electric hot-plate and has an extractor canopy over. There is also an integrated oven, microwave, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Both of the bedrooms within the apartment are double sized rooms. Bedroom 2 is currently set-up as a double room but could easily provide space for twin beds as required. There is a fully tiled en suite shower room which has high quality fittings including a large walk-in shower cubicle with twin shower heads and body jets. The main bedroom is another very impressive and spacious 16ft long room which has built-in wardrobes to the length of one wall. The bed is carefully positioned to take full advantage of the superb sea and coastal views through the glazed sliding doors which also lead out onto the apartments own private patio. Again, the room has its own fully tiled en suite shower room which has similar fittings to that of bedroom 2. There is also a separate cloakroom/wc which is accessible from the main entrance hall.

The apartment benefits from gas fired central heating and has recently installed replacement double glazed windows and doors. The living room and main bedroom windows have bespoke fitted electrically operated and remote controlled blinds. The furniture and equipment in the property (bar a few minor personal items) is available to purchase by separate negotiation if required allowing for immediate occupation and use.

Outside, Castle Rock is approached via private driveway which leads down to the various parking areas that the property has. Each apartment has its own allocated parking space with number 3s space being conveniently located close to the building and the entrance that serves number 3s part of the building. The large lower car park provides numerous additional parking spaces which are for the shared use of all of the apartments within the building.

The apartment has its own privately owned patio/sun terrace which is immediately accessible from both the living room and the main bedroom. The terrace wraps around the apartment on two sides and there is ample space for outdoor furniture and sun loungers and the entire vista of the bay and rugged coastline is always in full view.


Woolacombe sits on the rugged North Devon Coast and amidst the surrounding National Trust land and is an extremely popular and well known village throughout the UK primarily due to its stunning golden sand beach. Many visitors flock to the area throughout the year but especially through the summer months. The village has an array of facilities which include a variety of small independent shops, a selection of cafes, bars and restaurants to suit all pockets and tastes, a medical centre, pharmacy and a primary school which has an 'outstanding' rating from Ofsted. As well as the 2 1/2 miles of golden sand that stretch across to Putsborough there is Barricane and Combesgate beaches which have rock pools to explore and the former having a beachside kiosk selling delicious Sri Lankan curries through the summer season. There is also Grunta beach which is a smaller and quieter private cove. The surrounding National Trust Land provides miles and miles of walking enjoying some of the finest coastal scenery on offer. There are a variety of leisure facilities and excellent nearby golf courses with the best known being the two links courses at Saunton, one of which is at championship standard. The Exmoor National Park is also just a short drive away. Mortehoe, at the top of the hill, has a village store, post office, two public houses serving food, a church, take-away restaurants and a tea rooms.

Barnstaple is North Devon's main trading centre and is approximately 12 miles away and has many of the bigger name shops, a rail link to Exeter which has direct trains to the London Stations, and direct access on the main A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27. There is a helipad at Chivenor and the nearest airports are at Exeter and Bristol.

A full internal viewing is an absolute must to fully appreciate the grandeur and quality of this outstanding coastal home.


The property is leasehold with the balance of a 999 year lease which commenced on the 1st April 2002. The freehold is vested in the Management Company which is made up of the 11 apartment owners. Peninsula Management are the appointed Managing Agent and they oversee the day to running of the building. The service charge is currently £4,000 per annum which is paid annually in June, this is the same for all apartments within the building. We understand that pets are allowed within the building and a written consent for the pet is given by the Management Company. With regard to holiday letting, any request for any apartment to be holiday let is reviewed by the Management Company and a decision given based on the best interests of all of the shareholders (apartment owners). Currently, there are no apartments within the block that are used for holiday letting purposes but there have been in the past.
