Loved the off road parking with the cool electric gates making it very secure. The flat is on the top floor and we decided to use the the very handy lift. Inside we were amazed how homely and welcoming the flat is but also with lots of modern touches. The art work and photos in the walls work really well. We loved being able to use the balcony overlooking Ilfracombe bay and town very romantic setting and listening to the sea. Would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone who wishes to have that extra special experience whilst holidaying here. Will certainly be looking to return soon.
