From the moment we booked, Helen was outstandingly helpful and friendly. All of the room were spacious and comfortable and the communal areas were in excellent condition and large enough for our whole party. We had a perfect and seamless stay. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here, can not say enough nice things about this place.

There are three bathrooms, two are ensuite to the bedrooms. The kitchen is large and also has a breakfast area. The lounge has two very large sofas and also a more formal dining area. This made for comfortable viewing during the duration of the Olympics at Rio. The apartment has obviously been refurbished recently as everything is clean, tidy and in very good order. It also has some nice touches for example a shelf full of holiday books to read. The garden is large with a badminton net, recliners and a seating area next to a lovely stream at the bottom. The apartment has the added advantage of being very close to all the main attractions in Ilfracombe without the parking problems. We had two cars and there were always parking spaces available. The owners are very welcoming, attentive and friendly. I recommend this apartment, we had a super week in this beautiful part of Devon.

Owners have done a very good job of restoring this cottage & making it into a very cherning and cosy location for a family holiday.
