A real home from home (but tidier and better equipped in my case!). Fantastic views to Ilfracombe harbour and out into the Bristol channel. A perfect place to sit and watch the sunrise/sunset. Be warned that to get that view, Horizons is at the very top of Hillsborough and at the top of the building too - be ready for a bracing climb especially if you're not driving. Well worth the effort though.

Mr M,

Horizons is an excellent apartment. The furnishings and kitchen equipment are all of good quality. The high point is the view from the front of the property looking down on the harbour. we would definitely recommend "Horizons."

Mr W,

If Ilfracombe or North Devon in general is your destination I can highly recommend this property. Location is first class with views to die for from this 3rd floor apartment overlooking the harbour. The property is clean, comfortable and is one of the best I've stayed in. It is worth pointing out that Ilfracombe is hilly so walking back to the apartment from the sea front may not be to everyone's liking. Equally, the stunning views are as a result of being in a prime location situated on the 3rd floor. As there is no lift, this means that several flights of stairs have to be negotiated. It wasn't a problem for me but those with several cases may find it too much. All in all, a great place to stay !

Mr T,

Apartment was lovely, it was everything we wanted and more. Also lovely view from window of harbour etc.

Mrs M,

Horizons is the most fantastic location and accommodation!! The owner has thought of everything. The accommodation has everything you could possibly need for your stay. With lots of information. The view is remarkable, and our little girls loved watching the boats in and out each day, and the sunsets were breath taking. It’s a very quick walk into Ilfracombe and a good base to get to the various beaches and activities. On previous reviews the stairs were mentioned. There are several flights of stairs but they are worth it for the phenomenal view!! Thanks again, and we hope to be able to book again!!

Mrs M,
