  • "The Lookout has lovely ever changing views across the harbour, from Capstone Hill to Hillsborough."

    St James Park is also nearby. The apartment itself is well appointed and comfortable. For us it provided an excellent base for exploring the coastal path, using the regular buses, between Woolacombe and Combe Martin.

    Thank you so much for your positive review - the views from The Lookout are spectacular aren't they! And so glad you had good weather for your stay. Property Owner

  • "The Lookout in Ilfracombe was just perfect in every way."

    The décor is relaxing and the facilities in the flat are outstanding. AND THE VIEWS!! The flat’s windows all have stunning views over the sea, harbour and town shops/facilities, all of which are within a short walk. Clearly lots of thought and care has gone into making this a place we are sure everyone will enjoy as much as we did. Inside the flat the rooms are well laid out with a stunning kitchen in which absolutely all equipment you need is provided. Great options for the two good-size bedrooms with bedding and towels provided, so you hardly need to bring a thing for 4 adults or 2 adults & 2 children. Fantastic heating too available instantly, so that this is a flat for all-year round visits. Smart TV, board games provided for a fun night in, or make your way within minutes to all the restaurants in the town. Nothing’s been forgotten and we absolutely loved our stay here.

    Dear Sue, thank you so much for your very kind words. We do indeed hope that all our guests enjoy the flat as much as you did. We do our best to ensure everyone has everything they need during their stay. Property Owner

  • "Great location and the view was stunning."

    Blinds were broke in the childrens room sadly so couldn't close them and to find that we couldn't check in until 5pm on the day of arrival was a bit of a disappointment as we practically lost out on an entire first day. Apart from that the place was very clean and extremely comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday.

    Thank you very much for your review. We are sorry that you had a broken blind in the children's room, but we were unaware of your problem until the day of your departure when the incoming guests alerted us to it. You will be glad to know that the blind was repaired within 24 hours. Property Owner
