  • "A suberp apartment, so clean and tidy ,great instructions and welcome pack ."

    The location is great and close to all amenities. The bonus has to be the private parking available. Highly recommend

    Thank you for you kind feedback. We have an excellent housekeeping team and do a great job ensuring everything is ready for your arrival. We purchased a second car park space a few years back to ensure that we had additional capacity for guests as its so sought after in this area. Property Owner

  • "10 Cove View is a beautiful property in the perfect location."

    The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of clothes storage space in the bedrooms. The decor was of showroom standard and the apartment was spotlessly clean, it smelt lovely as we walked through the door which was immediately re-assuring. The view over the cove was lovely, perfect for enjoying your morning brew. The property is on a bit of a slope which isn’t ideal if you struggle with mobility but it didn’t bother us at all. Parking is easy and directly over the road. I would highly recommend this accommodation if you’re looking to visit Ilfracombe.

    Thank you for your excellent review. Wuth the apartment being east-west facing, it catches lovely sunshine in the kitchen for your morning coffee and light streams into the lounge by the afternoon. There are quite a few hills around this part of the coastline which although challenging for some, make the area very picturesque. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will choose Property Owner

  • "As usual Sykes Cottages did not let us down, and 10CV had every thing we needed which was perfectly clean and tidy which made the holiday very comfortable."

    Although we were initially looking for a cottage type accommodation, the location of 10CV was ideal for the town of Ilfracombe and as a base for the surrounding area - the parking situation was particularly good. This was our second holiday with Sykes for me (age 85) and my grandson (age 19). I look forward to more such holidays.

    Thank you so much for your excellent review which is appreciated and helps to inform future guests. We have an excellent housekeeping team and do our utmost to provide good quality furnishings. We also invested in a second parking space for those coming with two cars as we know parking can be restricted at times. Property Owner

  • "A beautifully presented apartment with lovely furnishings, fully equipped kitchen should you want to self cater and very comfy beds which made our stay even more relaxing."

    The standard of cleaning was also excellent so hats off to the cleaning team. It was an ideal location for venturing on foot to the eateries and bars, harbour and beaches. We would highly recommend a stay and should we visit the area again we would not hesitate to re-book here. Thank you for making our stay so pleasurable.

    Thank you for your very positive feedback which we will also pass on to our housekeeping team. We’ve invested in good quality sofas and beds as we know how vital that is for a comfortable stay. The proximity to everything is one of its best features as it’s so nice to book somewhere for dinner and only have to leave 5 minutes to get Property Owner

  • "The reason for 4 stars is the dreadfully creaking floor boards."

    When in bed down stares it is impossible to sleep for the noise of creaking floor boards if people are walking about up stares. Otherwise we were very happy with the very well equipped and clean apartment.

    Thank you for your mainly positive feedback although sorry that the flooring affected your enjoyment of the property. Being coastal with changing humidity the oak flooring does creak which unfortunately is not something we can eliminate and would require changing to carpet or tiles. Most guests seem to like the feature of natural wooden flooring but I appreciate it was not for you on this occasion. Thank you again for taking the time to do a review. Property Owner

    Thank you for your comments which we have discussed with the owner. The owner's welcome letter clearly explains where the bin store can be found. The key safe is in perfect working order and doesn't need replacing, it is likely that the buttons were not fully pressed (they need to click to operate the safe). 2 lemon squeezers have now been purchased.

The property

10 Cove View is a beautiful, coastal apartment that looks out across Capstone, towards the Landmark Theatre with lovely views of the sea, positioned in the North Devon town of Ilfracombe.

Perfectly positioned for strolling into the town centre, it is the ideal base for a family holiday or two couples looking to get away, offering two allocated parking spaces slightly down the hill, a rarity for properties of this size in Ilfracombe.

Step into a roomy hallway that leads into entering the bright and stylish living room.

Californian shutters and crisp white walls reflecting the East- West sunlight that pours through the floor to ceiling windows and patio doors.

Step out onto the balcony and drink in the superb views as you sip a replenishing drink and enjoy the magnificent sunsets drifting across the sky.

Move through to the dining area from the living room and tuck into a delicious meal cooked up in the kitchen, catching up on the day you've just had and making plans for further adventures during your stay.

From the kitchen are patio doors to another small balcony, which offers views towards Hillsborough, the coastal path and the bustling harbour.

Follow the stairs down to the lower ground floor bedrooms and find a twin with zip/link beds and patio doors out to an enclosed courtyard garden, ideal for enjoying your morning coffee with a good book.

There is also a lovely king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room and a family bathroom, where you can indulge a hot soak in the deep bathtub, on return from a long walk on the coastal path.

You are very close to all the town has to offer, including shops, restaurants, Damien Hirst's statue Verity and the Ilfracombe Observatory.

Just a short walk from the little beach in the harbour and the historic Tunnels Beaches.

For surfers and those who are seeking the large expanses of sands that this coast is famous for, Woolacombe and Croyde are both within easy reach.

With Exmoor National park also on the doorstep, what more could you ask for?

Note: We also provide a pull out bed for an additional child on request at additional cost of £20.00

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
