Property code: OC-OYSTEC

With the most wonderful panoramic ocean views over the rugged North Devon coastline and Bristol Channel, this stylish and individual first-floor apartment is located in the popular harbour town of Ilfracombe. If you are looking for a sociable long weekend away with friends or perhaps you’re taking a well-deserved week off with your partner or family, this apartment is a real treat.

20 internal steps take you up to the apartment where the centrepiece is the open-plan living area with its generous floor-to-ceiling bay window - a perfect spot to relax over a leisurely meal and admire the stunning vista of waves crashing on the shoreline below, boats passing by on trips to Lundy Island or small fishing vessels on their way back to the harbour. You may even be lucky enough to see seals, porpoises and oystercatchers. A modern, well-equipped kitchen area sits to one side of the living space and from here, doors open out onto the balcony where you can take in the sea air and enjoy a morning coffee whilst planning the day’s activities. The lounge has comfy sofas and a Smart TV for evenings in and the master bedroom has a king-size bed and is served by an en-suite shower room. The compact second bedroom has twin beds and both bedrooms have views across the town towards the Torrs. There is also a main shower room off the hallway.

This stretch of the coastline is known for its dramatic cliff top walks and keen walkers can enjoy the South West Coast Path. For foodies, Ilfracombe’s culinary reputation continues to grow with a choice of quality local restaurants, cafes and bars on offer. Just a short stroll from the apartment brings you to the historic harbour with Damien Hirst's imposing bronze sculpture 'Verity', while shops, pubs, restaurants and the famous Landmark Theatre are all close by for your stay. Spectacular coastal walks, the golden beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton and the delights of Exmoor National Park, are all also within 11 miles.

We had the best week in ilfracombe, the pictures don't do the location justice, the view was just gorgeous! The flat was extremely well equipped and clean, there is lots to discover! The town has lots things to see and we would definitely want to stay here again, if we come back to north devon.

Fantastic coastal views from the lounge/dining area and easy access to the south west coast path from the front door. So well equipped, clean and comfortable. Some great local food to choose from, if you don't want to cook. Further afield, plenty to keep a family occupied and amazing North Devon sandy beaches a short drive away.

We had a great week and found the apartment spotless (apart from some large cutlery - probably the dishwasher and missed by the previous occupants) and very cosy. We wanted for nothing and appreciated the milk and biscuits. I only gave slightly less for location as the parking was tricky (so tight) and the street so narrow with the dead end.

Amazing views of the crashing waves from the apartment from both indoors and on the balcony. Parking space was very accessible 100yrds or so from the property. The apartment couldn't have been any cleaner, it was immaculate! Very well equipped. Great location on the coast path and near the harbour. Bus stop on the High Street for buses to CoombeRead more Martin and a lovely coastal walk back. Hide
