    “Our host Lindsey’s tastefully decorated apartment is situated in an ideal location in the town.”

    It’s just a few minutes walk to the local shops, restaurants & local attractions. We had a great time and didn’t want to leave. We’re a family of four and were very comfortable during our 7night stay in Ilfracombe.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We try hard to make the apartment as comfortable as possible for that home-from-home feeling and it's nice to know it was appreciated. Property Owner

The property

Only a short stroll away from the harbour and Wilder Cove, in the heart of the seaside town of Ilfracombe, is this stylish apartment, Blue Skies.

Tastefully presented throughout, Blue Skies is a wonderful base for a family or two couples looking to a holiday in this popular Devon location.

The open-plan living area is located at the end of the hallway and serves as the social hub of the apartment; it includes a chesterfield sofa, two armchairs and a Smart TV where you can unwind after a day of sightseeing.

A well-equipped kitchen awaits behind, where you can conjure up a nice meal to be enjoyed at the dining table: watch the sun set from the bay window as you reflect on the day's adventures.

Before retiring to one of the bedrooms for a good night's sleep, freshen up in the family bathroom.

There is a double and a twin room with an en-suite shower, each beautifully presented with fresh linen.

A well-known Italian restaurant, Giovanni and Luca's Italian, is just a moment's stroll and is perfect for treating the group to a meal out.

There are many things to do in the town; learning about local history at the Ilfracombe Museum, participating in water sports at the new water sports facility, visiting the Ilfracombe Aquarium, enjoying leisurely strolls along the harbour, take the ferry to Lundy Island, or simply spending the day on the beach.

Get in the car and drive a short distance to Woolacombe Beach, which was named the best beach in the UK.

Croyde Bay is a little further away, but both beaches are sizable and stunning.

Barnstaple is eleven miles away and features a number of shops for the essentials, as well as the Barnstaple Pannier Market, which has a wide variety of fresh goods.

Visit Combe Martin Wildlife and the Dinosaur Park, where there is a zoo and theme park for the kids to enjoy.

Blue Skies promises a holiday to remember, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


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.
