  • "The apartment is in a beautiful location with stunning views from the back."

    Ideal for 2 visitors, a wonderful spot. The bed is comfortable and clean and the settee is one that can be well settled into. The balcony is a great spot to listen to the sea, drink a coffee or eat breakfast. Highly recommended. Ilfracombe is also a little gem. Something for everyone to do.

  • "Lovely flat with the most amazing views."

    Great to have such a generous balcony, that is covered, to experience it from. I sat on at least one occasion watching the sea at night with a glass of wine as the rain poured but remaining dry. Excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful

  • "The cottage was lovely except for the balcony which was dirty with seagull droppings and very old furniture."

    Everything in the cottage was lovely except for sofa which was old and saggy and uncomfortable. The bed was very comfortable and we got a really good night's sleep. The cottage had everything we needed and we had a nice break.

    The seagulls are a coastal feature and although the balcony is cleaned weekly, they can still present an ongoing annoyance. Whilst not to everyone’s taste, the outdoor furniture was craftsman built and provides a comfortable resting place to enjoy the spectacular view or an al fresco breakfast. The duck down cushion fill on the sofa occasionally needs plumping up and the two swivel armchairs provide a very comfortable alternative. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely apartment with everything that could possibly be needed."

    The balcony and the view was breathtaking . I had spoken to lesley and she was so nice and thoughtful, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful holiday let to anyone and we will definitely be back. The parking was the only issue gut we were lucky to secure a disabled space for the whole week

    Thank you for your review we are glad you had a lovely break at Vals Seaview. You are most welcome to return . Property Owner

  • "Lovely views and central location."

    Very warm and comfortable with all mod cons provided for. Didnt use the dining room as wanted sea view, would've put the table over looking the view and not the back street. However we sat on the balcony and had tea using the lap trays.

    Thank you for your feedback , glad you had a great time at the apartment. Regards lesley Property Owner

Discover the well-appointed kitchen, where you can rustle up a hearty feast with assistance from a range of appliances, before settling down on the sofa and catching up on your favourite shows.

Step out to the spacious balcony, complete with table and chairs, a lovely spot where you can sit back with a favourite tipple or watch the sunrise each morning with uninterrupted views across the channel which is busy with boats and view of Wales in the distance.

Head through to the bedroom, housing a double bed and ample storage for your personal items.

With fantastic local transport available and a bus that stops at the church, you can travel into the centre to stock up on essentials at the convenience store or treat you and your partner to a meal at one of the restaurants in the harbour.
