  • "Stunning apartment and very well equipped."

    Very spacious and tastefully decorated. The outside space was superb with amazing views and sun most of the day in June. Some pint glasses and a shaver point would have been handy but they are the only thing. Parking for small car only but Rover permit at £50 a week available online with plenty of car parks close by and you can use at a lot of other places too. Excellent holiday and Ilfracombe itself is great.

    Thank you for your very useful feedback and we are glad you liked the apartment and outside space. We will invest in some pint glasses. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you back again sometime in the future. Suzie Property Owner

  • "Lovely apartment with great furnishings and bedding, nice and stylish very comfortable and a wonderful place to stay whatever the weather."

    Everything seems to have been thought off and all the furnishings, etc. are good quality and in good condition. The parking space is quite tight and not for the fainthearted however, there is in midseason and for parking in town and sometimes for free overnight Ilfracombe is a lovely Town with lots of eating and drinking options we had a lovely meal up the hill Behind the harbor in the lime kiln. My elderly mother found the access steps with the overhang, a bit challenging.

    Hi Claire, We are glad you had a lovely time and hope to see you back in the future. S Property Owner

  • "What an awesome week away in this beautiful holiday apartment."

    No 1Cheyne Beach is so spacious and airy with lovely decor. The kitchen is fantastic and the whole place is spotlessly clean. The veiws outside the rear of the property are amazing. Quite possibly the best sykes property we have stayed in over the last ten years. The location is great too. The town, harbour and coastal path just a stroll away. Woolacombe Beach, just 6 mile away is gorgeous and our border collie Jac loved it there. All in all a fabulous stay and we will definitely be back. Many thanks Kobe McNamara.

    Thanks Kobe for such a lovely review. We are pleased that you had a great week and look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

  • "Very nice apartment in a central location."

    Very newly decorated and lovely furniture and beds. Great view of the sea from the living areas. Quiet. The bedrooms were by the road and as below ground level meant little air came in through the windows and so were stuffy. The third bedroom didn’t even have a window at all. Felt slightly damp in the bedrooms. This was the only negative and would put us off slightly from booking again

    Hi Mark We are sorry you felt that there was insufficient air in the bedrooms. We haven’t experienced this ourselves and stay at the apartment quite frequently. As regards the slight damp feeling, I wonder if this is because the heating hadn’t been on for a while. I will ensure we put it on the day before guests arrive in future to prevent this, but again we haven’t experienced this. Property Owner

  • "Beautifully furnished and very comfortable."

    We have a concern that the property description refers to steps down to the rocks. These steps are extremely dangerous and in fact there is a sign saying that they should not be used. We think that the property description should be amended as this access was an attractive feature to us. The gate at the top of the steps should be padlocked as one morning the gate had blown open and the warning sign was not visible.

    Dear Victoria, We are sorry that you felt that the description of the steps on the Sykes website to be inaccurate - however, it was clearly stated that people use the steps at their own risk. In light of your feedback we have instructed Sykes to amend the description which they have now done. Since your stay, the steps have been cemented so they are no longer loose or uneven. We are glad you found the apartment well furnished and very comfortable. S Property Owner

    ! Only download side of the property was the parking BUT we got lucky with sports outside the apartments xx

    Hi Kerry We do provide parking (but I acknowledge it is a small space, which is why we have stated that it is only suitable for a small or medium car). We have also suggested that guests use the general car parks in the centre of Ilfracombe which are only a 5 minute walk from the apartment. I'm glad the rest of the apartment met your needs.
