A cosy hideaway with far-reaching sea and harbour views in the popular resort of Ilfracombe is a lovely base for exploring the beautiful North Devon coast and countryside. Sleeping three guests across two bedrooms, the first-floor apartment is ideal for a couple or small family. The property is quietly located, yet within a few hundred metres of the bustling high street and historic harbour. Ilfracombe offers a wealth of attractions for all ages, along with a great range of shops and places to eat.
This charming retreat is tastefully furnished in a contemporary style. The light and airy open-plan lounge has glass French doors opening to a spacious outdoor terrace, from where you can drink in the lovely views. There are comfortable sofas, a dining area and a neat kitchen. Soft, neutral tones feature in the two bedrooms—one double and one single—and there is a sleek bathroom. A patio table and seating outside on the terrace are the perfect spot for al fresco dining.
Explore Ilfracombe’s famous, man-made Victorian Tunnels, leading to hidden beaches and make the steep climb to the historic St Nicholas Chapel, a working lighthouse said to be the oldest in the country. Enjoy the wonderfully eclectic collection housed in the town’s museum and take a stroll around the harbour. From here you can embark on an exhilarating wildlife cruise or voyage out to the National Trust’s Lundy Island. Head for the rugged cliffs surrounding Ilfracombe to see spectacular views along the South West Coast Path. Discover the wild beauty of Exmoor National Park (11 miles) or have a beach day on the golden sands of Woolacombe Bay (6 miles).
