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.

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.
Fabulous views and well equipped property.
Superb Apartment with excellent views
On entering the apartment it was clear that, for us anyway, this place had the wow factor. Very spacious, spotlessly clean, very comfortably furnished and equipped with everything that anyone might need for their stay. Really great views from every window with something to see whatever the time of day or night. Infact the views were that good that we never had the tv on once while we were there. The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable affording a good nights sleep even on the first night of our stay and how good was it to open the bedroom curtains in the morning to a fantastic uninterrupted view of the sea!. Also it was only a very short very pleasant walk to the sea front, shops and all amenities. The only disappointment to us was the furniture on the balcony, which in fairness is exactly as it is shown on the web site. It was clean and perfectly usable but the chairs were quite uncomfortable after a very short period of use which was a shame as we would have liked to have spent more time sitting out there. All in all though a great place to stay
The property was beautiful and well positioned for the perfect holiday
Beautiful property, well equipped and very comfortable . Lovely position overlooking the town . Will come again
Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you found our apartment comfortable and that you enjoyed the views. Even in less than favourable weather the views make up for it a little!
A very well equipped and modern apartment with stunning views from all of the windows,
Thank you for your review. I am glad you found the views stunning - I totally agree - and I am glad you found our apartment comfortable.
Incredible location, very comfortable and spacious apartment.
We visited Ilfracombe for a wedding in the Tunnels (a wedding venue only a few minutes walk away). We were more than delighted with our choice of accommodation. This is probably the best located property in Ilfracombe. It's on the top floor of a building prominently placed overlooking the town and coastal areas. The view is a 270 degree panoramic one which we couldn't take our eyes off!!! Furthermore the apartment is very cosy and spacious. We were 5 people and we were not crowded. It was a very cold and wet weekend (Easter) but the apartment was nicely warm and cosy. It's well equipped and appointed. It's also very handy for the town; just a few minutes walk to the main area and the harbour. We dined at the Quay which we would recommend and at the Watersmeet Hotel in Woolacombe, where the food was high quality but was a more formal environment. Lots of walks to do if the weather was better; we only ventured on the magnificent beach at Woolacombe! Overall, a great weekend and we recommend this apartment wholeheartedly.
I am so pleased that you enjoyed our apartment and the incredible views and it sounds as if you had some tasty meals. If you choose to come back, we welcome you wholeheartedly and hope that you get to see it in the sunshine - the sunsets are amazing!
