  • The apartment is on the top floor (approx 60 steps) and has a wonderful double aspect with fantastic coastal views to enjoy rain or shine.

    “The accommodation is light & spacious and we were honestly surprised at how fabulous it was - nothing to fault with the furnishings either. We used the microwave, hob & oven and washing machine and had no problems. The allocated parking space was just across the street, down the hill. We never used the car all week as could walk easily to Co Op and Lidl. ...”

    “The accommodation is light & spacious and we were honestly surprised at how fabulous it was - nothing to fault with the furnishings either. We used the microwave, hob & oven and washing machine and had no problems. The allocated parking space was just across the street, down the hill. We never used the car all week as could walk easily to Co Op and Lidl. Ilfracombe is fabulous for walkers but you must be prepared for some steep hills even in the town itself. We ventured out on various walks in the area. We walked the coastal path to Woolacombe one day & to Coombe Martin on another and got the Filers bus back on both occasions (pay by cash not card!). The apartment is superbly situated just off the high street and just back from the sea front. There are plenty of independent shops, cafes & restaurants and there is a Wetherspoons just down the hill from the accommodation. We were in Ilfracombe 31st Oct - 7th Nov and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, we can only imagine how lively & bustling the town must get in the height of summer! We can honestly say that we would definitely love to return here and stay in the same apartment - thank you.”

The property

Positioned in the centre of the bustling seaside town of Ilfracombe, 9 Cove View Apartments is a superb third-floor apartment boasting gorgeous sea views and a spacious, stylish interior.

With the location affording guests a pick of four beaches, walks along the stunning coastline, easy access to the South West Coast Path and fabulous local amenities and attractions, 9 Cove View Apartments is the perfect pick for a beach break.

Enter into the third-floor apartment via the stairs in the complex after a day on the shores and head to the open-plan living space, reached down the hall and down six steps into the lower part of this split-level apartment, here you can begin to wind down into your evening.

Choose to take in the views from the sitting area, with a sofa perfectly positioned near the window, you can sit with a good book only looking up to enjoy the views, or lounge in front of the Smart TV with a good film playing on Netflix or the DVD player, the skylights creating a light and airy environment for your relaxing evening.

Sea views continue to keep you company from the dining table thanks to the dual aspect windows in the apartment so you enjoy picture-perfect scenery from both sides, dine here with a delicious meal made in the kitchen, home to a great range of appliances in the sleek fitted units.

Settled down in the evening in the spacious master bedroom where a double bed awaits amidst plenty of floorspace and storage, as well as an en-suite shower room.

Completing the apartment layout is the twin bedroom and the bathroom.

Ilfracombe has lots to offer by way of activities, first and foremost being its four stunning beaches, with Rapparree Cove being small and secluded with mostly shingle, Ilfracombe Harbour home to a sandy shore among the moored boats, Wilder Beach resting beside the Landmark Theatre and close to the beachfront amenities, and the unique Tunnels Beaches accessed via man-made tunnels with a lovely tidal pool which is great for paddling with little ones, as well as benefiting from easy access to the South West Coast Path, with its remarkable walks and breathtaking vistas along the stunning coastline of Devon.

Explore the eclectic collections of Ilfracombe Museum, marvel at the wondrous sea life in The Ilfracombe Aquarium offering local fish exhibits and feeding demonstrations alongside its café, or head down to the harbour for a sea safari spotting dolphins, seals, porpoise and lots of birdlife.

Don't miss a chance to visit Exmoor Zoo while you're in the area, at just under 15-miles away it's an easy drive, it's home to the only pair of black leopards on exhibit in the UK, as well as monkeys, cheetahs, reptiles and birds too.

Venture into the Exmoor National Park for stunning views around every corner on multiple footpaths and trails, catch sight of Exmoor ponies, and experience for yourself the epic stargazing available here, with Exmoor being the first place in Europe to be designated a Dark Sky Reserve.

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.
