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.

My husband and i Stayed at Searock 9 for 4 nights from Sept 4th 2015, and we couldn't have had a better break. The building is bang smack in the centre of everything, accross from the promenade, the Torr and round the corner from the harbour. Fore street and the high street are right behind it up the hill. Excellent location.There are restaurants and shops to suit all tastes and budgets, and so, so much to do. I cannot express how much we fell in love with Ilfracombe.

The apartment itself was fantastic. Somewhat bijou, but absolutely PERFECTLY formed. The Accommodation is very high spec and feels like a real home-from-home, with everything we needed and more, as if they had thought of my personal comfort and just for me. The bed is the most comfortable bed i have ever slept in when i have been away from home, i had four excellent nights sleep. There are 3 flights of stairs to traverse, but that made me feel better about all the chips i ate while i was there!

Tips for prospective guests: Parking- we obtained a 7 day rover permit from the tourist office and safely parked at Jubilee Gardens with no issues. Fish & Chips: The Ilfracombe Fryer was fantastic in both value and taste. See everything.

I cannot praise this place enough and we will be back next year.

Owner's Response: This is a really fantastic review - it is everything I would want our guests to know & more. I am so grateful. As you say - Sea Rock 9 is somewhat 'bijou' but whenever we stay there I feel so comfortable & cosy! Really pleased about the bed - I love mattress toppers! Many thanks again & please do come back.

Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

Choice this appartment due to price and location and was not disappointed. Loretta met us on arrival and was very welcoming and even showed us their other appartment with stunning views, we were jealous!

This appartment is excellent value and almost perfect after a long day of walking, just remember to save some energy at the end for the 50+ stairs! We were certainly a lot fitter at the end, so all was good!

We're planning a future Christmas let in the other flat.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for this lovely review.It's good to have such comments for our 1 bedroom place, which we feel is a perfect haven for couples but can be booked with the 2 bedroom apartment as an 'annex'! It was lovely to meet you - obviously a rare occasion, since we live so far away & do not get to meet guests very often. You will love Christmas there! - Look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes - Loretta

Gorgeous Apartment

  • 4 of 5

On Areival to the apartment we were ment by Pauline who could not have been anymore helpful, with places to see where to eat and what to do. The apartment was a gorgeous little one bed but was big enough for the two of us and had everything we needed. Everything had Ben thought of and we couldn't ask for more. It is right in the door step to whether spoons which is ideal after you have a had a long journey and need something stronger then a brew! The sea front is just seconds from the from door and the view is amazing especially walking up the cliff. The main high street is just a few minutes up the hill and has a great variety of shops. Of course the whole of Devon is minutes by car to explore and to take in more beautiful sites of the countryside. Fantastic time had and would love to return in the future.
