All on same level and large portico over way in so even in rain it makes things easier to unload/load. Wonderful views from the windows of sitting & kichen/ dining area. Large spacious rooms (except second bedroom which would be more suitable for children as single beds at right angles to each other). Shower room smallish, Parking tight- allocated Read morespace but need to reverse off street. V good for harbour if you are fit. Pull up otherwise. Netflix on smart TV. Hide

Lovely apartment in a great location above Ilfracombe Harbour. Well equipped with nice views. Short walk into town, shops and restaurants. It is high up so the climb back may not suit some people. The second bedroom is small so the apartment would only suit a family with children if fully occupied.

The location is on a hill with a nice view of a part of the harbour. It is on a main road, and some road noise enters the single glazed bedroom. En suit bath is nice. Large lounge and kitchen. Washing machine is available but not a tumble drier. Parking is very tight and a larger car may be very difficult to park.

The apartment is nice, spacious and has amazing views but we thought it is wrong to advertise a patio when its just the window ledge which you can sit on, it cant be accessed from the property, you have to go out the front door and walk around the property to get to it, this was not explained on the listing. One of the reasons we chose this apartmeRead morent was that the listing said it had a patio and guests would love the outside space etc. We had a 19 month old in the flat so couldnt use it at all Hide
