It has been converted to a high standard from a Victorian sea captain's residence, retaining many original features and yet with all modern amenities making it a superb holiday retreat. Ilfracombe makes a perfect holiday base with its charming harbour, lazy pavement cafes and a wide selection of places to eat, as well as the harbour side restaurant that is owned by the artist Damien Hirst. Just 10 minutes by car are the golden sands of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands.

Beautifull, clean appartment with a lot of space and fantastic views over the harbour and cliffs. Lovely window seats to enjoy the view and a very nice considerate housekeeper who is very helpfull.

A beautiful apartment in a fantastic location. The views are incredible. The photos don't do the views justice. With regards to the steep walk down to the harbour, there is a more gentle sloping path that runs parallel to the harbour from the property. The parking spaces are very narrow. If the others are already parked, you can't get in your spaceRead more and vice versa. The water pressure was terrible. The rainfall shower was literally a dribble and the shower hose in the bathroom didn't work at all. Hide

The apartment was fantastic! It was fitted with very comfortable living furniture the beds however were a bit uncomfortable one was really hard and the wood makes a noise with the slightest movement with both beds. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances. The view is absolutely fantastic which makes up for any bad points, I would definitely goRead more again :) Hide

A nice clean well appointed flat with nice views over Ilfracombe Bay, BUT if you can't do stairs Larkstone may not be for you. This is top floor apartment. The windows (for safety reasons I would think) do not open very far and the flat can get a little hot, Bring a fan.

Lovely big spacious apartment, generally well equipped, stunning views from the window seats a great place to sit with a glass of wine and watch the world go by. We found the apartment to be rather hot particularly the main bedroom as the windows barely open, bring a fan!

A wonderful property, a top floor apartment overlooking Ilfracombe Harbor, a great location with very easy walks Into town. The apartment was spotless and brilliantly furnished with instant hot water, the kitchen was superb with oven, grill cooking jobs etc Possibly the only issues were (1) there are quite a number of stairs to climb to gain accessRead more and if residents are elderly and informed, difficulties could arise (2) the private parking areas are relatively small.
