The Garden Suite is a wonderfully spacious apartment located within easy walking distance of the Victorian town of Ilfracombe and famous Tunnels Beaches.  With a great choice of shops, cafes, restaurants, tea rooms and craft studios Ilfracombe has much to offer. There are stunning walks along the coast, a museum, interesting art galleries and an active pier where boat and fishing trips are available.  The informative and popular aquarium can be located here along with Verity, the stunning Damien Hirst sculpture.

The apartment is fully self-contained and private whilst adjoining the friendly owners own home close to the town’s delightful Runnymede Gardens and is a perfect location from which to explore the town and all the many facilities on offer. The gated entrance leads you down the path to the private front door.  The large hall gives an insight to this surprisingly spacious apartment.  A free standing cupboard displays lots of local information, there is hanging space for coats in the cloakroom and an under stairs cupboard for storage. (The stairs lead to the owners’ private accommodation only and are not used by the owners when visitors are in residence).

The large living room is light and bright with Parquet flooring and comfy seating, woodburner and selection of books and games. Two glass cabinets either side of the woodburner add a touch of elegance and grandeur.  From the living area a sunroom with table and chairs means you can sit and enjoy the owner's garden, which is delightful, fully enclosed with plants, shrubs and steps leading to a lawned area. You can enjoy lazy breakfasts in the well equipped kitchen which has plenty of storage space – including a walk-in larder and dresser. A utility/drying room with sink, washing machine, wooden bench and clothes airer is ideal for laundry or drying wetsuits. An ample wet room contains a large headed shower with an additional handheld attachment, wooden bench, WC, basin and the delights of constant underfloor heating. The stylishly decorated bedroom has wood flooring and views to the garden which can be accessed directly via French windows.

Located just a few minutes from the heart of Ilfracombe town centre there is free roadside parking near to the property. However you choose to spend your time in this lovely location, The Garden Suite and its friendly and helpful owners will make you feel at home and do everything to make your stay one that you will want to remember – and repeat!
