The property

With the most enviable sea views stretching across the Bristol Channel and boasting two private balconies, this glamorous dual level apartment is but a stones throw from the sea and short walk to the harbour, shops and the famous Tunnels Beaches in Ilfracombe.
Positioned on the headland away from the hustle and bustle of town, Seascapes is a ground floor, reverse level apartment in the prestigious Granville Point, once a grand Victorian Hotel, now converted into luxury apartments with secure access and gated parking. Perfectly positioned to enjoy a seaside family holiday or relaxing escape, walkers can explore the dramatic North Devon coastline along the SW Coastal Footpath that runs close by the apartment. Once a Victorian seaside resort, Ifracombe now boasts a fine selection of fashionable cafes, galleries, shops and restuarants and most recently the bronze Damian Hurst sculpture "Verity" that draws visitors from far and wide. Positioned just a short walk down hill from the apartment, is the truly unique Tunnels Beaches, a popular wedding venue, and a perfect day at the beach for families with children. Walk through the tunnels that lead to the other side of the cliff revealing two small sandy coves providing a rock pooling haven. There is a large tidal swimming pool ideal for children to play, a beach shop and café on site. Close by are some other magnificent beaches in the area in including Woolacombe and Mortehoe ideal for surfing; for families The Big Sheep and Combe Martin Wildlife Park are within twenty minutes, and if you enjoy a round of golf The Ilfracombe Golf Club welcomes non members.
