About Stephanie Fitzwilliams
We spent 2 years looking for the right property in many locations, including abroad, and fell in love with this apartment. The location is quite outstanding and the views from all windows are exceptional. Ilfracombe is ideal for walkers, cyclists and holiday makers looking for a relaxing beach holiday, or, for the more energetic, there are fantastic surfing beaches just down the road. We are within a couple of minutes walk of the famous Tunnel Beaches which is nestled amongst the most beautiful setting where they hold weddings and events. Even during the winter months we have found that there are still activities going on and the coastal walks are beautiful. We are a busy family with 2 children and a dog and we always look forward to coming down and re-charging our batteries. If you book our apartment, we hope you will find it as tranquil and idyllic as we do.

Why Stephanie Fitzwilliams chose Ilfracombe
Our apartment is located literally on the water front. We are on the top floor and the views are phenomenal from every window. We can see out to sea towards the Welsh coastline, out over the town of Ilfracombe and also towards the Harbour. We have secure gated parking, lift access and when the weather proves chilly, underfloor heating. The apartment has everything you should need for a relaxing stay and an added bonus is that there is plenty to see and do within walking distance. Saunton Sands, Woolacombe Bay and Croyde Bay are a short drive away and we are not far from train stations that can take you to London or down to Cornwall.
What makes this Apartment unique
What makes this apartment unique is the layout and outlook. We have a turret on one side looking out over the sea and a tower on the other side looking out towards the town and harbour. When you open the door to the living room, it is hard to choose where to sit as the views are just spectacular! The balcony looks out over the sea and the town and feels private being up on the 4th and top floor. The main bedroom has windows the length of the room overlooking nothing but sea. Having secure gated parking is a bonus as the car parks in the Summer months get very busy.

The parking was excellent, the elevator was convenient, the view was spectacular. The owner responded right away with an issue with the kitchen tap. It was clean with great appliances.
Wonderful apartment. Quality furnishings, comfortable beds. Fantastic views.
My husband and I needed a base for three days (2nd-5th October 2018) whilst in Ilfracombe attending a wedding. Our daughter was matron of honour to her best friend so she and our son-in-law stayed in accommodation at the venue ('Tunnels', just a few minutes walk down the hill), and our six month old granddaughter stayed with us in the apartment. A cot and high chair were provided, saving us from having to travel there with bulky items. Everything was spotless and fittings, bedding and towels great quality. This has to be the best apartment in Ilfracombe and we would have no hesitation in recommending it. The weather was reasonable, although overcast most of the time, but still warm enough for us to make use of the balcony and watch boats and ships, both from sitting in bed with our morning tea and from the seating areas. The sea view must be even better when the sky is blue and the sun shines. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't think of anything we could have needed that was not supplied.
Top class apartment with stunning views

What fantastic views
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful apartment. The views from every window were stunning and the sunsets were beautiful. The apartment is very spacious, we were 4 adults & it was not at all crowded. The welcome basket was most 'welcome' and the kitchen had everything you would need. We ate out most evenings, however on the days we were tired from galavanting around North Devon, the Lidl around the corner from the Tunnels was visited a few times. Nice Prosecco on offer! Although parking near the apartment didn't seem a problem, having your own parking space was really handy. The apartment was in a really good location, just far enough away from the busyness of the main area but only 10-15 min walk to the harbour. The block itself was really quiet, slept well with the window open listening to the gentle waves. If you like walking then the apartment is on the South West Coast Path. We had a really lovely time in Ilfracombe & the surrounding area's, boat trips & sightseeing during the day but relaxing evenings playing the available board/quiz games with a glass of bubbles or two! Would highly recommend this apartment.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your time here and I am so glad that you found plenty to do and that you enjoyed being in our apartment and making use of the games!
