Guest Reviews


    • “Excellent place to stay”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed in this apartment with a 3 year old, a teenager, 4 adults and a pensioner and it was a great holiday. The place is very well kept, is clean and well decorated. The owners were very nice, helpful and gave advice on places to eat and visit. The owners have left toys for the children which is a lovely touch, DVD's and books. The location is fantastic and is between the seafront and the town with a view of the sea from the balcony. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. The kitchen was well stocked with cutlery and crockery and all of the appliances are clean and good quality. There was plenty of space and the bedrooms are a decent size. The only thing that was missing was internet but I understand the difficulty of this. Our mobiles did not get a good reception so this could not be used either but this is probably a good thing as we had a teenager with us :). You will not be disappointed with this holiday home. One piece of advice is to buy a weekly car park pass as this covers quite a few places in North Devon. The person below offered his parking space but as we were traveling around so much, we found this more suitable. It is a bit of a distance but if you get chance, the Williams Arms in Braunton has a fantastic carvery and the building itself is a stunning thatched restaurant. Google it and you will see what I mean.”

    • “the accommodation was very good, plenty of space and the bathroom facilities excellent as we had an elderly couple with us and the walk in shower was ideal. The kitchen was well equipped with amenities and kitchen utensils for everyday use. The utility room an excellent extra room for storing shoes, wet clothes, drying clothes, etc. The beds were all of good quality and good nights sleep was had by all of us. The apartment was extremely clean. Very good location. Could do with a handrail outside up the steps.”

    • “The property was in a great position with sea views of Ilfracombe and we found ourselves within walking distance to all attractions. Overall a good sized apartment for 6 people.”

    Mr Mcfarlane, Leigh-on-Sea, August 2015

    • “The view from the sitting room was stunning and it was a well-equipped property which was very clean & tidy.”

    Mrs Oliver, London, August 2014

    • “The cottage was lovely and the setting was ideal.”

    Mr Torrence, Motherwell, August 2014

    • “The apartment was very nice, a good location between the town and the beach. Everyone had been catered for as there were books, DVD's, toys for children and even a crab line and some buckets. We had great fun fishing for crabs and looking in the rock pools. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who is going to visit Ilfracombe. One piece of advice is to get a weekly parking pass as this will allow you to stay in other car parks in North Devon. Well worth the money. The owners of the property are very friendly and helpful in giving advice.”
