About Mr and Mrs N J Boulton

We are a recently retired couple, who fell in love with the apartment and Ilfracombe and now live in the town. We love being by the sea and going for long walks along the coastal footpath. The views along the cliff tops are truly stunning and the sea air is exhilarating. Our children and grandchildren love to visit and we all go surfing, kayaking or even swimming in the sea.

The restaurants are excellent, often run by husband and wife and offer very good value for money. We enjoy visiting the local theatre and cinema - it is all on the doorstep!

Mr and Mrs N J Boulton purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Mr and Mrs N J Boulton chose North Devon

As soon as we walked into the apartment we were struck by the stunning view of the sea and coastline through the huge bay window. It is like having the sea in your living room!

We never tire of sitting looking out of the window at the sea and passing boats - the sea looks different every day, sometimes rough, sometimes calm but always interesting. The difference between high and low tide can be an amazing 10 metres.

It is wonderful to be able to sit on the balcony in the summer, and wander around the harbour area and up Lantern and Capstone hills.

North Devon and Exmoor are beautiful areas with excellent sandy surfing beaches and dramatic scenery - we love it!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is only 100 metres from the harbour and the sandy harbour beach and is on the coastal footpath. Amazing restaurants and pubs and the town centre are all within easy walking distance. Walk out of the apartment and up Capstone Hill for excellent views over the town and out towards Wales and Lundy Island. Walk in the other direction up Hillsborough for more fantastic views. There is always something to do or see, whatever the weather - enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a lovely relaxing time in your stunning apartment. What a fabulous view to wake up to each morning. Thank you for all the little touches which were very welcoming.



We have fallen head over heels in love with your seaside flat and beautiful Ilfracombe. Such a rejuvenating stay! We've loved the local walks, strolls along the coast path and watching the sun both rise and set over the sea. Such an amazing stay, we have loved every minute!



We have had a superb break in this lovely flat, watching the rocks appear and then disappear at high tide. Thank you so much for allowing us to experience your wonderful flat. Hopefully we will return in the future.

Comfortable, modern apartment with superb views

  • 5 of 5

Views, views, spectacular views! The apartment is immaculate and had everything we needed, a real home from home. The welcome tray of locally sourced treats was a very nice touch on arrival. It is superbly located to explore the coastal path and towns or to sit in and look at sea views if the weather is not so good. It is centrally located in Ilfracombe and therefore close to all amenities. We would definitely stay here again if visiting North Devon.

Modern well equipped apartment with a stunning vie

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic apartment in great location near Ilfracombe harbour. Little touches by the owners really make the stay special. We arrived to a welcome pack of wine, chocolate etc. Also there was beach mats , wind breaks and body boards available for us to use. Numerous restaurants in the surrounding area but get booked up quickly.

Owner's Response: There are some very good restaurants in Ilfracombe, often quite small and run by a husband and wife team, but they do get booked up especially in the summer holidays. Next year we will send a list of them a couple of weeks before the booking, to enable guests to book a table.

This property is absolutely stunning, the views fully living up to those in the listing. also located so close to the centre of Ilfracombe so everything is on your doorstep as are many local scenic walks. Ifracombe is also a fantastic place to explore this part of the country should you want to go further afield.

But back to the property. As previous reviewers have mentioned the provision of a welcome pack and a parking permit really give this rental a sixth star. The furnishings in the apartment are beautiful with the most comfortable beds I can remember sleeping on. You really feel like you are borrowing someone's home

Wendy and Neale proved very friendly and helpful in the build up to the holiday quickly responding to emails. Thank you to the both of them for making this such a fantastic holiday for us. I cannot praise the whole experience highly enough

Beautiful apartment & wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

Apartment exactly as described, very clean, well maintained with everything provided with a lovely welcome pack which was really appreciated. Called the housekeeper once and she was most helpful. Without a doubt would recommend this apartment with the views, privacy, quietness and easy access to the harbour, local facilities restaurants etc. . Visitors book was helpful as previous visitors had listed places to visit, eat and things to do. Excellent service from the owners with full instructions. Highly recommended.

holiday from Oz

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very well equipped but bathroom facilities for four adults a little lacking - ensuite almost too small. OK for a couple of children 'tho. Parking away from the unit is not ideal and it will be much better when all renovations in the street are complete. We were clouded by our very fond memories of Devon some 40 years ago and should not have tried to revisit them. The weather did not help!

Owner's Response: There was a lot of work going along the road when you were staying, and sadly the weather was also not very good. The works outside have now finished.

Beautiful, spotless apartment in dramatic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days in this gorgeous apartment.

It seemed so clean that we were convinced we were the first guests until we saw the visitors book and the many glowing reports inside.

The owners had obviously gone to great lengths to make the place seem like home and had left a very generous welcome pack. Heartfelt thanks to them. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a stylish apartment with a view as from the bow of a ship!
