    “This is a lovely third floor apartment -very clean and tidy - in a beautiful location and thankfully serviced by a very efficient lift.”

    ...

    The apartment has wonderful northerly sea views across to Wales and side views from the balconies towards Capstone Hill and Ilfracombe itself. We can definitely recommend 'Seasiders' for its quiet, relaxing location and being well provided for comforts wise. On a small point: In all other holiday apartments we have been pleased on arrival to find a 'Welcome Pack' containing such as: Milk, bread, tea / coffee, Scones, jam, cream (or similar), bottle of vino - sadly nothing on this occasion. Bearing in mind that bookings are from Sundays at 5pm and that the local Lidl and Tesco shut at 4pm, hopefully guests will have brought their own provisions or made other arrangements/on-line delivery etc. To make life easier; some coat hooks on the wall - just inside the apartment entrance corridor - would be useful for outside coats & hats, as would a 'plastic' tray for wet/dirty shoes. Likewise a couple of 'Suitcase' stands would be helpful - they fold up easy when not in use. However, these are only small points because otherwise everything you might need is to hand with an excellent supply of clean / new cooking utensils and the oven was a pleasure to use, being so clean (albeit during our stay the main oven light was not working). Personally we found the main bed mattress to be rather on the firm side and care was needed to avoid the bottom corner bed-leg when walking past. However, all the bed linen was very clean and the white towels beautifully soft and spotless. Finally, having said all of this, we would gladly book this apartment again and will definitely recommend it to our family and friends - it is so relaxing.

The property

Magnificent sea views greet you from every window of this idyllic apartment, its two balconies affording a panoramic vista of the North Devon Coastline, Ilfracombe bay and out over the English Channel towards the distant coast of South Wales, clearly visible on a good day.

Occupying part of the third floor of the luxurious Granville Point development formally a grand Victorian Hotel, Seasiders is one of a select number of prestigious holiday apartments with secure access and gated parking for visitors.

Elevated over the bay and harbour of Ilfracombe, the town's amenities, shops and the Landmark theatre are within a short walk down hill from the apartment.

Also positioned at the base of the hill just minutes from Seasiders, the truly unique, historical Tunnels Beaches, where four tunnels through the cliff provide access to the coastline, coves and two small beaches.

A rock pooling haven, there is a large tidal swimming pool perfect for children, a beach shop, cafe/bar and play hut.

A haven for walkers with the SW coastal footpath running close by to the property, explore the dramatic coastline by foot or take a trip across to the peaceful unspoiled haven of Lundy Island.

For those with young children The Big Sheep and Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park are both within a twenty minute drive and with outstanding sea views from almost every tee, the Ilfacombe Golf Club welcomes non members. Arranged over one level and presented to a high standard throughout, the open plan living room boasts a quality fitted kitchen, integrated appliances and granite work tops.

About the location

ILFRACOMBE

Barnstaple 11 miles.

The bustling seaside town of Ilfracombe lies on a beautiful stretch of North Devon coastline, with five beaches, much of it owned by the National Trust. Ilfracombe is only a ten minute drive from Exmoor National Park, with its rolling countryside and quaint villages. Ilfracombe's heritage harbour and quay are spectacular, with many pubs, shops and restaurants and frequent live music, creating a lively, friendly atmosphere. From here, take a wildlife cruise, a fishing trip or a boat trip to magical Lundy Island, a place of natural beauty, which will provide you with an unforgettable experience. Ilfracombe is the centre for some of the finest walking country in England. Whether you enjoy a gentle promenade walk around Capstone Hill, tackling the rugged coastal path or prefer the river valleys and tranquillity of the moorland hills of Exmoor, you will find the scenery spectacular. Ilfracombe also boasts a number of high-quality eateries, with local fish being prominent on their menus. To the east of Ilfracombe are the unique villages of Lynton and Lynmouth with its clifftop railway, and to the west lie the delights of Clovelly and Hartland. Moreover just a short drive away is the 3 mile long golden beach of Woolacombe Bay, which was been voted one of the top 20 beaches in the world, the perfect place to relax in the sun or catch some waves surfing. Ilfracombe is the perfect location for a North Devon holiday, offering you a gateway to an exciting blend of stunning coastal scenery, seaside fun, rural tranquillity and centuries of heritage and style.
