About Loretta Jewitt

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.

Why Loretta Jewitt chose North Devon

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Situated on the sea front and close to the harbour, beaches & town, our apartment has everything you need for a really enjoyable holiday or break! Despite the many cafes & restaurants, our apartments are well equipped for you to enjoy easy, 'home from home' living. The 8 Searock balcony offers a perfect place to take in the scenes and sunsets and 'chill' with your favourite beverage and food. There is something for all ages, whether you just like to browse the vicinity at a steady pace & take in the beaches, bars & restaurants, tackle the Tarka Trail on foot or bike or explore the attractions for children nearby. We are 'on the doorstep' of the Tourist Information Centre which has a wealth of knowledge about local sights and attractions to suit all ages.

You should definitely stay here!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this apartment is absolutely perfect in every way. The location is perfect, right in the centre of Ilfracombe with the harbour (and Verity) on one side and the Theatre and Tunnels on the other. You really could not choose a better place to stay. Even though you are in the very heart of the village, the apartment was very quiet. The apartment was very clean and welcoming with a lot of little finishing touches to make your stay perfect from the welcoming tea and coffee to the gorgeous shower gel in the bathroom.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and I am hoping to book again later in the year. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Ilfracombe. If you get the chance to book the two bedroom apartment, take it. It is so nice to sit out on the balcony in the sunshine with a large glass of wine just passing the time.

Excellent apartment, good views, good location, just be aware that there are 53 stairs up.

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room, with extremely helpful Sarah to give us the keys on arrival. Very thoughtful to provide 2 door keys. Everything spotless, and well equipped. Only thing to bear in mind is that it is on the top floor, which is great, but you do have a long climb up. Parking is rather a problem, the cheaper weekly ticket only entitles you to use outlying parks, and if using a blue badge you must pay normal parking fees. We had a super holiday, the coves around Ilfracombe with lovely beach cafes and pubs were such a treat! Lovely scenery, good for a walking and/or driving holiday.

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.

Perfect holiday

Perfect central location. Excellent flat that wants for nothing. Everything we needed was thought of. Stunning views of ilfracombe. Literally a stones throw from loads of places to eat or drink. Brilliant !!!

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.
