Property code: SMUGC

Lower-ground-floor studio apartment with its own private seafront patio, right on the water’s edge in the popular North Devon town of Ilfracombe, within walking distance of the town’s amenities.

This property enjoys a wonderful seafront location in the harbour town of Ilfracombe. The town has plenty to offer holidaymakers, so much so that some may prefer to leave their car parked up and spend the days wandering the towns streets, browsing the shops, sampling the local seafood, relaxing at the beach, perhaps taking a boat trip from the town’s harbour, or paying a visit to the interesting aquarium. For those who want to explore a bit further afield, the surrounding area is rich in attractions and places of interest including Lynton and Lynmouth, Heddons Mouth, and the spectacular beaches at Saunton Sands and Croyde.

This apartment is set right on the cliff edge, and is approached by an internal carpeted flight of stairs which takes guests to the lower-ground-floor accommodation. This being a studio apartment, guests will find everything they need contained cleverly in one living space, which is dominated by the spectacular views out to sea. In one corner of the room, the kitchen area is well-equipped with an oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, and dishwasher. The lounge area is at the heart of the space and has a folding dining table with chairs, a comfortable sofa, Sky Q TV, a DVD and Wifi.   It provides the perfect space to enjoy the views across the patio garden to the sea through the patio door. The double bed folds down at night from the lounge wall, meaning it can be stowed conveniently out of the way during the day. The property has a contemporary shower room with a WC.

Outside, nestled on the cliff face there is a fantastic patio garden to the rear of the property where care must be taken, a pretty shingled space with attractive plants and a table and chairs from which to enjoy the uninterrupted views of the sea.   Deck Chairs are available in the apartment.  The end boundary of the garden is the sea wall, where there are spectacular views but care should be taken in this area.

An electronic parking pass is provided for car parks which are just a few minutes’ walk from the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The apartment was lovely. In the centre of town and right on the seafront. It was ideal for the two of us with the dog. What made it special was the owners had thought of everything, a welcome bottle of wine, car parking sorted, treats for the dog. Really thoughtful. We loved our stay. Many thanks.
