Yet again another great stay at Little Quest, we could not wish for a better place to spend Christmas week. After a horrendous journey down to Woolacombe, what a lovely surprise & welcome sight to see a Christmas tree with presents underneath waiting for Christmas day to arrive for us to open them One of the first things our dog Xyla did was to run through your garden gate to see you you both where in. I know once we leave little quest Xyla will be depressed for 2 months because she does not want to leave Woolacombe as soon as Xyla get here she know where she is (Second home) Plus it is so difficult for my husband Cain to leave Little quest every time we Stay, Now we are on the count down for our August holiday Thanks again for making us feel at home & See you both in August Ayla

We had a wonderful break here in May. The accommodation was pristine and very comfortable. Our hosts were really friendly and very helpful, we were made to feel very welcome and at home. The views and walks surrounding this area are beautiful, we clocked up a fair few miles walking while we were here and went home feeling rested and restored. If you want the perfect private bolt hole for peace, quiet and getting back to nature this is the place for you. Can't wait to come back.

This was our second stay and will not be the last. The accomodation has been enhanced even more by an excellent new bathroom and kitchen. Along with the spot on location and the really nice small garden at the back, it has everything that we, and the dogs, need. A really great place for a holiday.

2000243 - WOOLACOMBE LITTLE QUEST Took my 16 year old away for a break from exam stress and to recuperate from illness. Little Quest was the perfect place to stay. Two minutes from the beach, but a quiet and relaxing environment. Great dog walks on the doorstep too! Jill and Phil were wonderful hosts, friendly and welcoming. Little Quest had everything we needed for a truly fantastic break away from it all. Heading back this October with my partner to share this little gem of a place with him as well. Highly recommended.

We absolutely loved this beautifully presented apartment with fabulous views & everything you could need in wonderful comfort. Having a little private courtyard & garden was so perfect for our dogs & to be so close to beautiful walks on the hills behind the house or down on the beach was awesome. I really hope we can stay again before long!

“Excellent stay at little quest.” Reviewed on Trip Advisor August 2nd, 2015 What can I say absolutely stunning location on elevated location, to the rear national trust land where you can get stunning views of the bay and the beach, only about 300 yards to beach or grassy area for dog exercise. Small elevated back garden (private), from front window views out to Woolacombe down and partial sea view also from kitchen windows. Phil and Jill were extremely helpful with plenty of local info would definitely go again hopefully next year oh and ideal for dog owners very dog friendly resort we took our border collie and she loved it .

“Absolutely brilliant” Reviewed on Trip Advisor May 26th, 2015 Fantastic place to stay with our dogs. Immaculately clean and very comfortable. Everything you need and a few nice little extras thrown in. Close to the beach and places to eat and Phil and Gill the owners couldn't be more helpful !!! I would never stay anywhere on my own usually but I would have no trouble staying here as it's not only cosy but feels 'safe'. Nothing negative to say at all... have been before and will definitely be going again. Would definitely recommend !!

“wonderful holiday, can't wait to return” Reviewed on Trip Advisor January 7th 2015 the new owners Gill and Phill have made little quest a 'little gem'. Clean, pristine with light , airy nautical feel décor it makes a lovely place to stay. Within easy reach of a pub and beach what more could you want - our two dogs just loved every morning on the beach. A lot of the establishments were closed in the town at this time of year but there was more than enough to get your necessities including a good meal at the local pub. Perfect for us - must admit may be hard to entertain kids but we didn't have that concern

Great location with nice views and the owners are very friendly and helpful. We had a great long weekend and found Woolacombe itself to be very dog friendly too.

“Little Quest - great escape” Reviewed on Trip Advisor September 6, 2014 NEW A great little place for a stay with the dog. Little Quest is not so 'little' - its rooms are spacious and the facilities excellent. So near to the town and the beaches but so quiet. The back garden is a sun trap to relax in if the bustle of the town is too much. The off-street parking is a bonus but bring a torch if you arrive at night, it's a bit tricky to find. The owners who live next door are very friendly and ready with advice on where to go should you need it. Woolacombe is a dog-friendly place and many of the cafes are very welcoming, particularly Eddy's, Barricane Beach Cafe and the Puffin. The nearby villages are also worth a visit and Little Quest is the perfect place to return to afterwards. Would definitely return.

“Perfect woolacombe retreat!”TripAdvisor ReviewReviewed June 15, 2014I've just returned from a week at little quest with my husband and two dogs and can't rate it highly enough! It's lovely and close to the beach and town but somehow remains incredibly peaceful, quiet and tranquil. The accommodation is fab, it's such a real gem to find somewhere beautifully decorated and furnished that allows dogs!! Phil and gill who own it are really friendly and helpful. I'm not one for holidaying in the same place twice but we would make the exception to go back to little quest! We couldn't have asked for better!!
