About Letitia Borsey

We live and work in Hampshire with our 13 year daughter. I have a tour operator and hotel background but later retrained and now work in healthcare. We have enjoyed holidaying in North Devon for many years in tents, B&B's and holiday lets. Holiday apartments were our favourite as they were the most comfortable and gave us the flexibility to eat in or out. We are delighted to be able to offer this ourselves in a coastal town with its own unique charm. There are plenty of coastal pursuits on the doorstep as well as many great places to eat just around the corner from upmarket restaurants serving oysters to traditional fish & chips. The harbour has a good range of shops and art galleries to browse within a few minutes walk of the apartment.

Letitia Borsey purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Letitia Borsey chose Ilfracombe

We took the plunge to buy 10 Cove View in May 2013. This apartment, in our view, had it all. A high end contemporary feel, a great view, central location with everything walking distance such as shops, restaurants and the harbour. It also crucially had its own parking space which we knew anyone like us driving miles to get here would not want the worry of finding a parking space. This area has the most beautiful beaches, coastal walking, stunning views and friendly people. This year will be our 5th season and we are delighted with the positive feedback from our guests who love the apartment and area as much as we do. It has been popular with families and couples getting married at Tunnels Beach, a great venue for those planning to tie the knot in a picturesque location. Our highlights are body boarding in the sea or sand dunes at Woolacombe, coastal walking to Lee Bay with a stop at the Grampus Pub and being able to step out in the evening to find so many great places to eat to Ilfracombe. Our housekeeper is local and does an excellent job of meeting all our guests on arrival and being on hand in the event of any problems.

What makes this apartment unique

The best points about this apartment are the location, sea views, the light, lovely decor and having its own 2 parking spaces. Staying here means you rarely have to get in your car. The location is so central you can enjoy the promenade cafes, the harbour with its galleries, shops & eateries, scenic coastal walks, local beaches or the Landmark theatre within a few minutes walk. The apartment offers a great space for entertaining with its sea views, high ceilings and contemporary decor. It is dual aspect so we get morning sunshine through the kitchen doors for breakfast and afternoon sun through the lounge in the afternoon. We can now offer guests the option two reserved car parking spaces in the car park opposite the apartment, essential in such a busy little town. Ilfracombe in early May sees Maypole dancers whilst throughout the year there are bouncy castles and minigolf on the promenade. You are spoilt for choice with restaurants - pub lunch, tapas, fine dining - all tastes are catered and just around the corner on Fore Street. The South West coastal path runs through the town. A short 10 drive takes you to the stunning surf beaches of Woolacombe & Croyde or rock pooling in Lee Bay. Activities like Paddleboarding and Jet skiing available nearby at Watermouth Cove.
