About the Owner

We live in the Midlands in England. Our 4 grown up 'children' have almost flown the nest! We spend as much time as we can enjoying holiday breaks and love Ilfracombe. We bought 8 Searock 2 Bed in September 2010. I came across the property in a 'random search' one Saturday, fell in love with it, went to see it the following Tuesday & bought it on Wednesday! We have spent lots of time improving it for our guests to enjoy. The apartment overlooks the promenade and sea with a balcony to appreciate this and glorious sunsets.

We bought 9 Searock 1 Bed in October 2012. Both are near the harbour, bars, restaurants and town. The area offers beautiful scenery, surfing, golfing and walks & cycling on the Tarka trail to say the least. Reasonable prices & breaks of 3 days minimum are available.

Great apartment, in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location, next to Capstone Hill, with views out across the bay towards the Landmark Theatre. All of the Ilfracombe attractions are right on the doorstep.

The apartment itself is modern (the building is old - a former grand hotel - with a lovely ornate staircase), with everything you need included ... plus welcoming tea, coffee, milk and biscuits! Most importantly, it is spotlessly clean, with a fresh, sunny, feel, with lovely little seaside touches, and local views hanging from the walls.

Good communication with the owner, and the housekeeper was very helpful and friendly.

Recommended.

Loevly Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little apartment in a fantastic location. Well equipped with fantastic views over ilfracombe.

Lots of stairs but this just makes it easier to justify all the fish, chips and Pasties.

Owners were a pleasure to deal with right from the start as was Sarah the cleaner who had to wait around for us while we were stuck in traffic on the motorway. If you are looking for an apartment in Ilfracombe the I would highly recommend this place.

Cracking larger apartment with super balcony

  • 5 of 5

This was our return to Searock having previously enjoyed the smaller apartment this time we tried the larger of the two and as before we thouroghly enjoyed our stay.

The big difference with this apartment is the wonderful balcony, I think it's west facing so in the afternoon we were able to enjoy the sun, I know it was February half term but honestly with a jumper on, the wind being from the east and in the sun we eat lunch out there, in the summer I'm sure it's amazing!

We had a particularly windy week the sea really came alive outside the harbour, then in complete contrast we sat on the sand against the harbour wall eating ice cream......we could have been a million miles away,

Like I said this was a second visit for us, Loretta does a top job and I know we'll be back, a 5 star holiday, thank you Loretta.

Well located apartment with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday in this very clean, very comfortable and well equipped apartment. Lovely sea views from the lounge and centrally located to the beaches and restaurants. The booking process was easy and I would definitely use Owners Direct again in the future.

Great flat in central location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely 5 days, the flat was comfortable and very well equipped.

The flat is very central being in a prime location right where you would like to be close to pubs, restaurants, the harbour and beaches.

Two highlights were the lifeboat practice evening on the Thursday and the walk with a fab view back over the town from Hillsborough and the walk along the coast path to Woolacombe and the new James Bond film at Ilfracombes cinema and the real ale in The Ship and Pilot.

Only frustration is having returned home I've had no response from the owners to my emails requesting our deposit back!

If I do hear back from them, I'll update this review accordingly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review - I really appreciate it. You were so 'action packed' during your break! Really sorry about the delay with email - you will now know that I hadn't got access & that your Security Deposit refund is on it's way in the post, along with the mobile charger you left behind. Hope you come back to us another time - you could treat yourselves & have the 2 bedroom one. Kind regards - Loretta.

Location

From the Owner

Ilfracombe is a beautiful town to enjoy, in a picturesque setting and a perfect base from which to explore the fabulous surrounding coast and countryside. A short walk up the hill is the fascinating and historical Fore Street with its 'hotchpotch' of cottages, inns, warehouses & workshops dating back to the middle ages. One of the original buildings is the George & Dragon tavern dating back to 1360! Fore Street is still a centre for 'meeting & eating' with quality restaurants, bistros, bars, pubs & cafes. The town centre dates from the 19th century with traditional greengrocers, butchers & bakers, handed down through generations. A visit to the town is a treat not only for shopping but to enjoy the historical Victorian architecture.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Our apartments are 500m from the nearest beaches and a 15 min. walk from nearby coves. The famous surfing beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde are 20 mins. drive away.

Cliff top walks can give amazing views as far as Wales!

Travel:

The National Express can offer services which take you directly to the bus station which is just behind the apartments, a 3 min. walk away.

The nearest train station is in Barnstaple and buses to Ilfracombe are regular from the station.

Distances:

Ilfracombe is ideally situated for you to explore the spectacular coastline and the delightful moorland reaches of Exmoor with its rolling hills and quaint villages; to the east are the unique villages of Lynton and Lynmouth with it's cliff top railway, and to the west the delights of Clovelly (wear strong shoes or trainers!), Appledore, Hartland and the market town of Barnstaple with its famous Pannier Market and Butchers Row. Barnstaple is 12 miles away.

Further Details:

A local bus goes to TESCO each day from the bus station behind the apartments or other stops in town and Lidl is within walking distance just past the Landmark Theatre. We find a folding trolly bag really useful!
