About the property

Stunning house with amazing views located in the heart of Ilfracombe

Great location to investigate a beautiful part of Devon. 5 min walk from the harbour, shops and the stunning 'Verity' statue.

Designed with couples in mind this is the ideal romantic getaway in an upmarket, stylish house refurbished to exacting standards.

Originally a four bedroom house the house now offers open plan sumptuous accommodation, reminiscent of warehouse conversions, with access to outside space and stunning views on the first and second floors with a roof terrace and balcony

This perfectly located holiday home is set back off Fore Street in the heart of the bustling seaside town of Ilfracombe with its heritage harbour and quay. The many pubs, restaurants and shops that create a lively, friendly atmosphere are only a couple of minutes walk away.

From inside - and outdoors - guests are offered fabulous views of Ilfracombe harbour and the rugged coastline beyond. You can even see Damien Hirst’s impressive “Verity” sculpture through the stunning arched window in the main living area. There is even a look out at the top through a 'secret staircase' from the master bedroom.

Technically a 1 bed room property set over 4 floors there is a sofa bed that could be made up - we have hotel quality linen available for hire or bring your own.

The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped with internet access and bath towels included.

This property offers the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful area of North Devon.

Coburg Villas- Stunning house with amazing views, over looking the harbour
average rating of 4.25 based on 4 reviews


  • 4 of 5

This beautiful home as been well restored and developed. Rooms are spacious and the bath/shower room was great. The house was clean and the linen was crisp and fresh.

It is in a good location and all facilities in Ilfracombe are in walking distance.

The 44 steps up to the front door were challenging to ageing knees! Would suggest packing small bags and cases when visiting. Noisy seagulls are part of the seaside scene!

Angela was very helpful with a couple of internet issues we had.

Thanks for a great holiday!!

Quirky property with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

The house is approached via 44 steep steps up from the road, and there is no dedicated parking - only council car parks nearby. Once you get to the house, the views over Ilfracombe are amazing. The house itself is unusually laid out, with a first floor lounge overlooking the town, and a quirky bathroom, complete with a roll-top bath in front of a bay window. The second floor open plan bedroom is 28 stairs up from the kitchen. Minus points - no microwave; overgrown garden; no DVD player; aggressive nesting seagulls made it impossible to use the second floor sundeck. Plus points - stunning views over the harbour and hills; great location close to the harbour; the house has clearly been modernised with care and style.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the wonderful views! We apologise for the seagulls and any inconvenience that they may have caused. We have plans to add netting on the property roof to prevent nesting in the future as soon as the chicks are grown enough to leave the nest so that it can be removed. We have also taken measures to ensure that the garden is under better upkeep, with the weekly checklist in place to include gardening. There is as you mentioned not a DVD player in the property but there is a smart TV in its place. It´s great to hear that you enjoyed the property, as the owner has put a lot of thought and love into the refurbishing. Thank you, we hope to welcome you back to Coburg Villas in the future!

A Home with a heart and fab views

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this elegant home. The attention to detail yet simplistic styling created a wonderful environment for us, to enjoy each other's company. Cooking in the quaint beautiful kitchen, meals around the dinner table and the wonderful views leave a lasting memory. The local area has lots to see, with Woolacombe and Saunton Sands beaches close by, which was great for the kids. We had great weather that week. The speed and efficiency with which, the reporting of a broken bed was mended was compendable - Thank you to Michelle (on behalf of the owner) Car Park close by. Be prepared for a number of steps to the entrance of the property but well worth the climb. A little treat for the kids were the baby seagulls nesting on the roof of the lovely lookout at the top of the house. We visited each morning to see how they were doing! Mummy seagull proudly guarding her brood. Hoping to return.

Aussergewöhnliches Haus mit super Ausblick auf den Hafen

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist perfekt in der Altstadt von Ilfracombe gelegen und sehr sehr geräumig. Man hat alles was man braucht in einer Ferienwohnung, eine super Aussicht und einen perfekten Ausgangspunkt für alle Ausflüge in Nord-Devon. Wenn man bereit ist 5 Minuten zu laufen, kann man auch noch im Hochsommer kostenlos parken. Für uns hat alles gepasst. Preis-Leistung passt absolut für England.
