  • "Sea sounds is a lovely and comfortable apartment apartment set close to Ilfracombe harbour."

    The view from the lounge/kitchen area is stunning and we spent many hours staring out of the window looking for seals and other wildlife. Jason manages the apartment and kept in touch to help us with any queries. He also arranged our parking permit which is a bargain for central parking! We would highly recommend Seasounds

    Thanks for taking the time to provide such great feedback, especially the awesome job Jason does in helping all of our guests have the perfect stay. We always like to hear that people get as excited as we do by looking out the window for hours! Hopefully you saw a seal or two but they can be tricky to spot so there's always next time if you didn't. Thanks again for staying at SeaSound and we hope we can welcome you back soon.

    You could enjoy the 'buzz' of Ilfracombe and then come back and relax on the balcony with drink and feel like the only people in the world! Even saw a seal! We will definitely be back!

  • "Everything about the accommodation and location was perfect!"

    The whole family has a great time, the only problem we had and this is really a whole of Illfracombe problem and nothing the owner can do, parking was an absolute nightmare! Even with paying for a permit upfront and having a blue disability badge, we struggled every day to park. The apartment and the views it provided were excellent. Wouldn’t hesitate to use this apartment again, just keep the parking situation in mind, when having days out your best planning to return back after 6pm when parking is a lot better. A fantastic family holiday location.

  • "The apartment was fantastic."

    The view was so Much more impressive than the pictures show. If that is Possible! Everything else In the apartment is so convenient for a stress-free holiday; dishwasher, two bathrooms, lovely decor and decent sized fridge/freezer. Ilfracombe is such a great holiday location we might not go abroad again!

  • "Fantastic location with uninterrupted breathtaking views of the ocean and wonderful sunsets."

    Lovely apartment, clean and comfortable with everything you need. Parking available at the nearby car parks for £42 per week. Fantastic coastal walks from the door step to Lee, Woolacombe, Hele, Watermouth or an easy drive away . Also Valley of the rocks and lynmouth worth a visit . If you want to visit Lundy Island or eat out make sure you book well in advance as everywhere fully booked due to Covid restrictions.

  • "The only problem was the approach to the Apartment."

    Very steep hill, narrow road with parking restrictions if you could park at all which we couldn't . We were on the 4th floor so 3 flights of stairs to climb! This needs to be considered before booking if you have any health issues or unfit! Once inside the Apartment it is excellent, all your needs are catered for, spotlessly clean, fantastic views . The second bedroom is small and really only suitable for 2 chidren as compact. 3 minutes walk to harbour, cafes, restaurants and shops. You couldn't wish for a better location, just bear in mind the that parking outside is very challenging but plenty of nearby car parks where you can buy a weekly permit £42.00.

  • "Generally very pleased about the accommodation."

    Definitely recommend a car park permit. Amazing view from the apartment. Very comfortable. All enjoyed the time spent bodyboarding at Woolacombe and Croyde. Paddle boarding at Combe Martin- girls loved it. One hour Smugglers cave boat trip good value- saw porpoises. Eating- excellent choice of ice cream and pastie shops by the harbour. Giovanni’s was a lovely meal.

  • "The apartment itself is exceptional brilliant views extremely well equipped comfortable warm."

    Couldn’t fault it. The only drawback is the lack of parking and the fact that it is up 3 flights of stairs. We are not as young as we used to be and found this quite difficult at times. e would certainly recommend the apartment for more able bodied people. The service we had from the property manager Jason was excellent

  • "Fantastic ocean views to unwind and relax to."

    Exceptionally clean and comfortable apartment with everything we needed. Plenty of things to see and do from the doorstep including beautiful coastal walks. Greatful of being offered the weekly parking permit and was able to park in a nearby car park for the week £42 .

  • "Fantastic location and views in a lovely modern apartment."

    Very clean and everything you need is there. Parking a little difficult however that seems to be normal in this town so a parking voucher was definately the way to go for the week. Would definately recommend to friends and family

  • "Very special apartment, just that bit extra."

    The photos on the Sykes site are great but cannot do justice to the changing views out to sea. Everything in the apartment was well planned and with a touch of luxury from super comfy beds, expensive towels and box of hand made chocs on arrival. Ilfracombe is a fabulous spot with wonderful coastal walks to Combe Martin and Woolacombe (look out for seals) - the walk from Watersmeet to Lynton/Lynmouth is also beautiful. Great choice of restaurants and cafes from the up market to the local Wetherspoons (great breakfast on the last morning). We were lucky enough to see harbour porpoises out to sea on our final day. Just cannot fault this holiday home for quality or location. Hoping to go back very soon.

  • "We had an absolute amazing stay at SeaSound."

    The quality of the apartment exceeded my already high expectations, the owners had thought of everything for the guests comfort. After a long evening drive from London, sinking into the very comfy bed was bliss. Waking up the next day and enjoying a coffee to the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks and watching the ever changing patterns of the sea made the past busy week at work seem like a million miles away. We had a two year old in tow and the apartment was very child friendly, the second bedroom had enough space for a cot which the hosts provided as well as children’s crockery and a high chair. Ilfracombe itself is a great little town with some fantastic restaurants and coastline. It’s a very convenient base for sightseeing along the coast too. We loved the area and are already craving to return to SeaSound!

The property

SeaSound is a stunning second-floor apartment perched on the cliffs of Ilfracombe, North Devon.

The unique feature of this newly-converted property is the panoramic sea views from the large bay window.

A chaise lounge next to the floor-to-ceiling glass is the perfect place to soak up the sounds of the waves crashing right beneath you from under a warm blanket.

To help you unwind after a long day sightseeing the open plan living area has a large corner sofa and Smart TV, complete with Chromecast.

The modern kitchen has everything you would expect to find in your holiday home, including a Nespresso machine and integrated dishwasher.

Up to four people can gather around the compact dining table to enjoy a home-cooked meal.

Or, if you prefer someone else to do the cooking, the apartment is moments from the harbour’s fabulous pubs, restaurants and takeaways.

Down the hall, you will find two bedrooms.

The en-suite master bedroom offers guests a premium king-size bed with pillow-top mattress: perfect for deep sleep and lazy mornings.

The statement headboard adds to the luxurious and modern feel of the space.

The smaller twin room is well equipped for both adult and younger guests, with storage for personal items and a bedside table and light for reading.

There is a separate family bathroom, with the choice of a bath and shower over.

Both bathrooms dispense UK-made paraben-free toiletries for environmentally-conscious guests. On warmer days the apartment’s small balcony area is perfect for enjoying the lovely sea air.

It comes complete with a set of furniture, so you can sit out and enjoy the views and the morning sun.

At the end of the road you’ll find Ilfracombe’s celebrated harbour, with the striking statue Verity and charter boats for visits to Lundy Island.

In the other direction you’ll find the Landmark Theatre and town beaches within a 10-12 minute stroll.

For those sporty types, get involved in the Tarka Trail, a series of footpath and cyclepaths which follow the Devon coastline. SeaSound is the ultimate family property for an unforgettable seaside experience.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
