The photos on the web site are very true to life. The downstairs area comprises a living /dining / kitchen area with a stunning view over the beautiful Woolacombe Bay. The main bedroom is light and airy with good storage space and a sea view. The second bedroom has two comfortable single beds adequate storage space , a TV a view of the private road , houses and a field with some very handsome cattle. There is a small modern bathroom with a jacuzzi bath - which I could not get to work- and shower in the bath. There are generous size terraces on both floors both receiving sun all day . The owner Lindsay was a pleasure to deal with both prior to our trip and also dealt promptly with an electrical problem that occurred during our stay . I can thoroughly recommend this apartment and if we stay in North Devon again. we shall definitely stay at Ocean Heights.

The owners Ann and Graham are very nice and welcoming and made us feel very at home. Will definately return and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to go to Ilfacombe. Fanastic views from the private patio. We had a super and relaxing time
