  • "Our host Lindsey’s tastefully decorated apartment is situated in an ideal location in the town."

    It’s just a few minutes walk to the local shops, restaurants & local attractions. We had a great time and didn’t want to leave. We’re a family of four and were very comfortable during our 7night stay in Ilfracombe.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We try hard to make the apartment as comfortable as possible for that home-from-home feeling and it's nice to know it was appreciated. Property Owner

  • "Such a lovely place to stay, we loved the amenities provided like washing up liquid, tea towels etc."

    Easy to park for £9.20 per day. Perfect location to explore North Devon. The flat was perfectly clean and had everything we needed for the 4 night stay!

    Thank you for your lovely comment. We like to provide a comfortable base and give a warm welcome to our guests with cake x Property Owner

The property

This stylish and unique apartment sits within the heart of Ilfracombe, just a moment’s stroll from the harbour and Wilder Cove.

Affording sea views and central location in this seaside town, Blue Skies provides an excellent holiday base for two couples or a family.

Leave the car in the nearby public car park and head into the building and up to the first floor.

The open-plan living space rests at the end of the hall and has been stylishly furnished throughout, featuring a chesterfield sofa and two armchairs where you can relax after a day of exploring.

Behind this appealing living area lies a well-appointed kitchen where you can rustle up a tasty dish to be enjoyed at the dining table.

As the evening draws to a close, watch the sunset from the bay window as you sip on a glass of wine.

Start your nightly routine in the family bathroom, before retreating to either of the bedrooms to catch some shut-eye; there is a double and a twin room with en-suite shower.

Just a few steps away lies a popular Italian Restaurant, Giovanni and Luca's Italian, perfect for when you want a night away from home-cooking.

Pick up essentials at the convenience store, delve into history at the Ilfracombe Museum, enjoy some water sports at the new water sports centre, meet the local marine life at The Ilfracombe Aquarium, enjoy gentle strolls along the harbour, catch a ferry over to Lundy Island, or spend a day on the beach: there really is lots to do in here!

Hop in the car and take a short drive to Woolacombe Beach, voted the best beach in the UK, while Croyde Bay is slightly further afield, both are expansive and beautiful.

The market town of Barnstaple hosts a variety of shops where you can purchase a gift to take home, as well as Barnstaple Pannier Market for a great selection of fresh produce.

Head to Combe Martin Wildlife and the Dinosaur Park, sure to be appreciated by the little ones with a zoo and theme park to explore.

Choose Blue Skies for the ultimate break to Devon, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Barnstaple 11 miles.

The bustling seaside town of Ilfracombe lies on a beautiful stretch of North Devon coastline, with five beaches, much of it owned by the National Trust. Ilfracombe is only a ten minute drive from Exmoor National Park, with its rolling countryside and quaint villages. Ilfracombe's heritage harbour and quay are spectacular, with many pubs, shops and restaurants and frequent live music, creating a lively, friendly atmosphere. From here, take a wildlife cruise, a fishing trip or a boat trip to magical Lundy Island, a place of natural beauty, which will provide you with an unforgettable experience. Ilfracombe is the centre for some of the finest walking country in England. Whether you enjoy a gentle promenade walk around Capstone Hill, tackling the rugged coastal path or prefer the river valleys and tranquillity of the moorland hills of Exmoor, you will find the scenery spectacular. Ilfracombe also boasts a number of high-quality eateries, with local fish being prominent on their menus. To the east of Ilfracombe are the unique villages of Lynton and Lynmouth with its clifftop railway, and to the west lie the delights of Clovelly and Hartland. Moreover just a short drive away is the 3 mile long golden beach of Woolacombe Bay, which was been voted one of the top 20 beaches in the world, the perfect place to relax in the sun or catch some waves surfing. Ilfracombe is the perfect location for a North Devon holiday, offering you a gateway to an exciting blend of stunning coastal scenery, seaside fun, rural tranquillity and centuries of heritage and style.
