Description from owner


benefiting from private parking, Cove View is an immaculately presented apartment, perfectly situated just a couple of minutes' walk from Ilfracombe's picturesque sea-front and scenic harbour. Superbly appointed with contemporary styling throughout, the apartment features a king sized bed and enjoys uninterrupted sea views from both sea facing balconies at the front, and town and coastal views from the balcony off the bedroom. The apartment is ideally located for exploring the outstanding North Devon coast and countryside. It is also perfectly positioned for access to all that Ilfracombe, North Devon's premier resort, has to offer. We provide a free "meet & greet" service and welcome pack containing fresh milk, biscuits, tea, coffee and sugar sachets, sponge and tea towel. Cove View is so conveniently placed - an easy stroll to many great pubs and restaurants, the pretty harbour and the Damien Hirst Statue and new restaurant "11, The Quay". There is so much to do in Ilfracombe, Exmoor and the surrounding area. Ilfracombe and North Devon are renowned for fabulous beaches, a breath-taking coastline and wide range of major tourist attractions including the famous “Tarka Cycle Trail”, Clovelly, Lynton & Lymouth and the West Somerset Steam Railway. Take a boat trip from Ilfracombe's historic harbour to Lundy Island, or try your hand at fishing, surfing, horse-riding or pitch and putt. Ilfracombe has something for everyone and activities to suit all tastes.

Getting around

Whilst a car would undoubtedly be a great asset to enjoy all that scenic North Devon has to offer, travel by bus to neighbouring towns is always an option. Please check on-line for the latest information on bus services to nearby towns such as Bideford, Appledore, Barnstaple etc. The famous Tarka Cycle Trail is easily accessible via bus to Barnstaple where cycle hire is available. Interestingly, Ilfracombe is one of a very small number of departure points for ferries to Lundy Island. Please check for seasonal schedules before travel.

Interaction with guest

We offer our guests a personal meet and greet service, showing you to your private car parking space and accessing the apartment. We will be pleased to assist with any information to ensure a comfortable stay.

“Beautiful appartment in excellent location”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2019

Excellent location and a perfect base to explore the surrounding area. We walked along the coastal path from Ilfracombe to Combe Martin and from Ilfracombe to Woolacombe beach, the scenery was stunning and it was nice to leave the car behind. Lynmouth and Lynton were well worth a visit and we walked from there to the valley of the rocks it was beautiful. We also biked along the Tarka Trail from Braunton to Bideford. Clovelly was also well worth a visit. The weather was perfect and we run out of time to do everything, we would like to have visited Lundy so will definitely return. I only have one small niggle, the holiday said it provided a meet and greet service but we did not get that, a key was left in the safe and a code was sent to me via text, which was fine but it shouldn’t have been advertised as a meet and greet service. All in all though a wonderful holiday thank you!

“Lovely Apartment”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2019

Stayed for a week, very well equipped apartment, very close to sea front, harbour, pubs and restaurants, nice views, sunrises from bedroom, sunsets from living area, perfect for a relaxing break, would recommend.

“Beautiful view, cosy, large apartment and warm indoor pool. Great for families looking for beach, pool, walks, villages”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2018

We are 4 adults and two toddlers/girls. We were really lucky with the weather as we got the last of October’s warm weather! We spent our days in the pool and on the beach. Walked along the beach to Woolacombe which is about an hours walk carrying little ones, otherwise 45 mins. It was perfect distance and we went along the beach on the way there and coastal path the way back (which was warmer as it was a windy day) and just made it back before the tide came in. Two of us went body boarding one day, we drive to different villages and towns nearby and spent lots of time in the apartment cooking in the kitchen which has everything you may need. Be aware that it is not a party apartment as the walls are quite thin above and below. It has a nice little balcony and ours had a lovely big bath. The drive to the apartment is a little scary at first as it’s the road to the beach and it’s narrow. There are curved bays to pull into when a car is coming the other way though do you get used to it.

Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely review but I'm not sure it was meant for us. 3 Cove View is situated on a normal width one way road next to Ilfracombe town and 50 metres from the Sotuh West Coast Path. We also enjoy stunning sunsets from our balconies, and have a well equipped kitchen and family sized bathroom plus shower-room. Perhaps your review was inteded for an apartment of a similar name, but thank you anyway for posting. Best wishes, James

“Fabulous holiday flat”

If you want to stay in a fabulous, well-equipped flat, with town, beaches and great walks right on your doorstep....this is the place for you! Safe parking, so park your car and use your feet. A variety of eateries close at hand.

Response from the owner Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed the fabulous walks nearby. I look forward to welcoming you back should you return to North Devon. Best wishes, James

Lovely apartment with everything that we need. In the best spot to get to the harbour and the High Street. Another massive bonus is a parking space.

Response from the owner Thank you so much for your kind comments and have noted your observations about the goegraphy of Ilfracombe and complaint about our apartment having too many bathrooms. Previous guest's feedback has tended to compliment the usefulness of two having two bathrooms for the purposes of being able to get ready at the same time and for the additional privacy it offers. However in recognition of the issue you raise I have now fitted an additional mirror next to one of the many plug sockets in the bedroom which will be ideal for use while drying hair. We generally use the full length mirror next to the plug socket in the hallway for this purpose, or the mirror above the shower-room basin which is in quite close proximity to the bedroom.I'm so sorry to hear that this detracted from your enjoyment and do hope you'll return to stay with us at a future date. Kind regards, James
