Lower-ground-floor studio apartment with its own private seafront patio, right on the water’s edge in the popular North Devon town of Ilfracombe, within walking distance of the town’s amenities.

Located right on the water’s edge with a private patio garden boasting panoramic sea views, this lower-ground floor studio apartment is ideally suited for adventurous couples looking for excitement in North Devon. The popular harbour town of Ilfracombe is a fun destination in itself, with plenty of local seafood to sample, shops to explore, an aquarium to visit and much more right on your doorstep.

No space is wasted in this cosy studio apartment. Cleverly implemented features allow you to convert the space to suit your needs, such as the easily hidden wall mounted double bed. Step in for a break from seaside shopping to a space bathed in natural light, subtle decor and sea views from almost anywhere in the open-plan living area. A shower room tiled in ocean colours is handy for rinsing off sandy feet after a day on the beach, then for a perfect evening follow this up with a drink on the patio watching the waves lap at the shore as the sun sets.

There are plenty of things to do close to Smuggler’s Cove without ever needing to get in the car. Take a trip to Tunnels Beaches, where for a small fee you can access an incredible private beach; explore rock pools and walk through tunnels carved in the 1820’s. Further around the coast, you’ll find the larger sands of Woolacombe and Putsborough beaches just 7 miles away. Alternatively, for the chance to visit historic caves, witness wild seals and deer and experience a truly unspoiled British gem, boats to the majestic Lundy Island leave frequently from Ilfracombe Harbour.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The apartment was lovely. In the centre of town and right on the seafront. It was ideal for the two of us with the dog. What made it special was the owners had thought of everything, a welcome bottle of wine, car parking sorted, treats for the dog. Really thoughtful. We loved our stay. Many thanks.

This accommodation was perfectly placed to enjoy a few days exploring the area. You are on the costal path yet close to the pubs, restaurants and all local amenities. Fully equipped with everything you could possibly need on your stay. Welcoming fizz was appreciated. A great location and great value for money.

This property is located perfectly. Great views of the rocks and sea from the courtyard and close to the pubs/restaurants in the town. It could probably do with a little modernisation but it was cosy.

The location and property were absolutely spot on. Negatives would be lack of parking, and during our stay builders and scaffolding were intruding on our stay. Builders shouting and radio blasting away.

Superb 7 day stay, everything was in place for our needs, the small secure courtyard that backed onto a great rock/sea view was brilliant for the two small Yorkie dogs we had with us to wonder in and out of the cottage. Some would say compact but it worked for us and only 5 mins walk to the harbour. Great view, good walks, car parking organised andRead more a nice welcome pack to enjoy, all good. Hide
