  • “Having read previous reviews, we went prepared for a few minor issues (there's now a storage container in the walk in shower :) ) - but actually, any issues were very minor indeed.”


    Yes, the balcony is a bit mucky - but it has been cleaned recently and short of house training the seagulls, there's not much you can do. It can get a bit windy out there so the doors do need the hooks repairing, but propping them open with the chairs worked fine. The shower over the bath does need attention - it's fine as long as you like a hot shower, but the temperature control needs fixing. I used it every day though as that bathroom was so spacious and the other one was very small. I'd have preferred the TV from the mezzanine in the bedroom - but then we didn't have kids with us! That's it - nothing worth mentioning really, except I wanted to update previous reviews. So now to the positives! The view! Breath taking! The photos don't do it justice. I could have just sat and watched the changing colours for the whole week! We put the table just inside the doors to eat - beat any view from a restaurant in town. The flat is well fitted out - clean and everything we could possibly need, including some tea and coffee etc to get us started and even a pair of binoculars and some games. The fan was very welcome as we had a hot week and it was nice to have plenty of coat hangers for a change (I always over pack!).The instructions were all there - but we didn't need them. The location was perfect - literally a 2 minute walk from the harbour and right on the coastal path. There were plenty of shops on the high street - about a 15 minute walk but be prepared for the hills - or stop off at Tesco's on your way into Ilfracombe. There are LOADS of amazing restaurants - everything from Michelin to fish and chips - BUT - most were fully booked up for weeks to come. Book well in advance. We did eat at The Smugglers on the harbour as they weren't taking bookings - we queued at 4pm when they opened but you go on a waiting list and they would call when a table was available - usually about an hour. Well worth the wait. There's also a Wetherspoons 5 minutes away and a Maddy's chippy, virtually outside, is not to be missed. We did the 2.5hr boat trip - fantastic afternoon. On our last day, we got a taxi to the car park for £6 - saved a lot of hassle. All in all a fab week - we'd definitely go back. Beautiful place and a lovely apartment. I'm already missing that view!!! Thank you to the owners for a very special holiday!
