  • "Amazing apartment with a lovely view from the balcony."

    The facilities within the apartment were lovely & lots of attention to detail to make it home from home, loved the welcome pack & very fluffy towels. Very glad of the lift after the short but steep walk back to the apartment from the town & secure building & had designated parking as described.

    It was spotlessly clean and everything about it is good quality. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is excellent. In addition it has a superb view from the living area / balcony. Good WiFi and having an allocated parking space are a bonus.

    !.The apartment is modern and tastefully decorated throughout, everything we needed within this aptment and Sandy was only a phone call away if w e had any queries.We went for a few walks by the quayside and along the front which were lovely but have to admit we were here for a rest and that is what this apartment delivered in spades. Our highlight was sitting by the window in the reading/viewing chairs ,which are SO comfy. We will be back!!!!

    It it has everything you could need. The location was perfect with great restaurants, harbour and shops minutes away. We went to Woolacombe beach body boarding, its a fantastic beach, Rib boat tour from Ilfracombe was brilliant we saw porpoise, seals and a sun fish. Kayaking in Combe Martin was amazing. We visited Lynton and Barnstable. We loved Ilfracombe try the Thatched Inn , Wards Bistro, Tandoori Nights, Terrace Tapas and Giovanna and Luca all great places to eat. Definitely book restaurants ahead as there are other places we want to go to but fully booked from six weeks before we visited

  • "The apartment had everything you need, it was very clean amazing views."

    We used the apartment as as base, as Ilfracombe is very central to some beautiful places, couldn’t recommend the apartment highly enough as you have your own parking space especially if your travelling with a nice vehicle you can relax that it is safe, but you do need to book restaurants in Ilfracombe well in advance not to be disappointed.

    A lovely place to relax, unwind, read a book, or watch the beach area directly outside. Parking is close by and in view. The apartment is very well equipped to dine in if you choose to, or close enough to walk to all the local pubs, restaurants and cafes although being on the top side of the hill, the walk back uphill will requires some stamina, but more than worth it when you are inside.

Sky sports and movies to keep the adults happy, Playstation to keep the kids happy! (As well as a cupboard full of games) As an apartment, the block is so quiet, yet its just a 10 minute walk to the harbour. Choices of restaurants and pubs around the town mean you wont need to cook!

  • "The Owners of 6 Arlington clearly care for their customers."

    They set out to give everything sensibly necessary. Disappointed to find an ashtray on the Balcony Table having chosen the property because it said 'No Smoking' (It did not cause us any problem). I am afraid that the Lift had a very bad smell noticeable for the entire week. I guess it comes from the 'Rubbish Collection Area' where the Lift possibly rests. (Again did not cause us any problem because it did not infiltrate into the property). I mention it because it is the first thing that a customer encounters when entering the Block and can start off by giving the wrong impression. Everything was well organised from Sykes point of view. Arriving, entering and leaving went like clockwork. The Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch. Car Parking was perfect except for the thousands of messages left by the seagulls. I'm glad that we had Satnav to find the property. You might like to consider a crisper pictorial approach. A little disappointed with Ilfracombe itself. It did not match my memory of the Town arrived at 65 years ago when I was 15 and came to Combe Martin with the Boys Brigade. I guess it is not sensible of me to expect anything else but it now has a 'Blackpool' image when in reality the Town is anything but. Would we book again; Sykes - Yes; 6 Arlington - Yes; Ilfracombe - No. I/we have tried to be constructive based on many years of travel throughout the world. Hope it turns out to be useful to you.

  • "Every year we stay in either Devon or Cornwall, and I must say that this Appartment is by far the highest standard we've stayed at, there is no expense spared, in decor, bedding, kitchen etc, in fact it felt like brand new and that nobody had ever stayed here before, as the decor was superb and immaculate and just perfect."

    We are also impressed by the owner who choose to contact us several times to make sure we are happy, and also to offer advice, once again it's normally the agency or housekeeper that is the main contact, but saying that Michael from Sykes Cottages spoke so high of the property and the owner, which was a good sign. The beach can be seen from the balcony, but it's so quite and not noisy at all. The main restaurants and shops, bars etc are a few mind walk from the apartment and there is a Tesco supermarket a five min drive. We can't rave about this Appartment enough, in our eyes it's just Amazing

Very well equipped kitchen even down to scales, measuring jugs etc. Extremely comfortable lounge furniture and very comfortable beds, excellent location only a couple of minutes' walk to the beach and about 5 minutes walk to the harbour. Lots of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms within walking distance and even a Michelin-starred restaurant a few minutes' walk away. Designated parking space which is essential in Ilfracombe, medium walk/short drive to lots of other lovely beaches. We would happily come back here, probably the nicest accommodation we've ever stayed in on holiday.

    The flat is very new and the public areas are kept very clean and tidy. The Parking is marked out with the flat number the space relates to so there is no prob;em with losing a space. The flat and the amenities supplied by the Owners are much more than we have experienced at any other properties and were very much appreciated. Due to the weather conditions at the time of our visit the owner telephoned us to make alternative arrangements for the booking due to snow and apologised because it had not been possible to arrange an arrival pack. Not a problem for us. We would thoroughly recommend this flat.

The property

This impressive second floor apartment looks out towards the sea, across Wildersmouth Beach and the viewpoint Capstone Hill in the popular seaside resort of Ilfracombe on Devon’s north coast.

Less than a few minutes’ walk from the beach, restaurants, cafes and shops, you have everything here on your doorstep making this a wonderful choice for a relaxing stay without the need for daily car journeys.

Step inside this fabulous apartment to a soothing and beautifully styled, contemporary interior, open plan with large windows and patio doors that lead out onto the seaward facing balcony.

Soak up the coastal views from the dining table or relax in the designer leather recliners perfectly placed to allow you to watch the boats as they travel to and from the harbour.

A large corner sofa allows you to lounge in total comfort whilst you take in a movie, however the most magical position is the balcony where evening sundowners can be enjoyed as you experience the most mesmerising sunsets over the sea.

The apartment offers two superbly comfortable bedrooms, one with king-size bed and en-suite shower room, the other a twin that can be zipped together for a super-king bed on request.

There is a family bathroom, separate utility room and a separate locked store to store a bike or surfboards.

Walk out of the gated parking area and the town shops, restaurants are on the doorstep.

Visit the famous Tunnels Beaches a short walk, the hand carved tunnels created in the Victorian times, that lead through to a sea water pool and two beautiful beaches.

The pretty harbour is also within a short walk where you will find the famous Damien Hirst statue ‘Verity’ that guards over the harbour entrance.

Enjoy a walk to the top of Capstone Hill, the viewpoint from the top is well worth the effort!

Should you wish to venture out of the town, the magnificent beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe are a short drive, both popular with families and surfing.

Take a trip to Lynton and Lynmouth and enjoy a trip on the cliff railway, or don your walking boots and explore the open moorland of Exmoor National Park.

There is so much to do and see in this region and once you arrive at 6 Arlington Villas, we can probably guarantee - you won't want to leave!
