About the property

Ilfracombe, North Devon - Walking distance to harbour, beach and a great selection of restaurants and pubs.

Verity views is a large three bedroom, two bathroom apartment. It has a fully equipped modern kitchen and two modern bathrooms. There is a balcony which runs across the front of the apartment, providing stunning views across the harbour and sea beyond, which can be accessed through the french doors in both the lounge and master bedroom. There is central heating in each room and an electric fire in the lounge.

Ilfracombe is a bustling town in North Devon with an historic harbour, ‘The Tunnels’ beach (holders of a blue flag and seaside award) and a large array of restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops.

With a number of points of interest including Hillsborough Hill (the site of an iron age fortified settlement), the architectural-award-winning Landmark Theatre with its unusual double-conical design, Trinity (a13th-century parish church) and the Damien Hirst owned statue, Verity, Ilfracombe is a great destination at any time of year.

You will find plenty to do in and around Ilfracombe with a large range of activities available to suit all tastes including walking, fishing, horse riding, cycling, surfing, walking, sub-aqua diving and clay pigeon shooting.

Ilfracombe is the perfect location to be based to take advantage of all that North Devon has to offer. There are a number of award winning sandy beaches within a short drive of the town which are perfect for children to play safely and also offer some of the best surfing in the UK.

With the South West Coast Path National Trail on your doorstep, rated as one of the top walks to be found anywhere in the world by Lonely Planet and voted Britain’s best walking route by the readers of walk magazine, it’s easy to explore the 630 miles of spectacular coastline.

Exmoor National Park is close by, containing an amazing variety of landscapes such as moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland within its 267 square miles. Within the National Park are the unique twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth connected by a cliff top railway and Combe Martin whose beach is famous for its safety, fun activities of kayaking, rock pooling, dolphin watching and general cleanliness.

To the West are the beautiful Hartland Peninsula and the market town of Bideford. On the coast and Estuary you will find Appledore, Westward Ho! and Clovelly, one of the last feudal villages. South of Ilfracombe is Barnstaple with its famous Pannier Market and Butchers Row.

About Kristy O'Connor

I live in Bristol and work in London so really enjoy taking time out to head to the coast and relax on the beach or go surfing. North Devon has always been one of my favourite places to go as it has some of the best beaches in the country.

Kristy O'Connor purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Kristy O'Connor chose North Devon

I had been looking for a property in North Devon for a long time as I regularly travel back and forth from my home in Bristol to go surfing and generally relax by the sea. When Verity Views came onto the market I knew it was the perfect place for me as it was based in Ilfracombe which meant I was within a 20 minute drive of my three favourite beaches (Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton) and it had the most amazing view which I can just sit and watch for hours.

What makes this apartment unique

There are so many great restaurants and pubs in Ilfracombe that you are spoilt for choice every day and they are all within a short walk of the apartment.

There's also a parking space right outside the property which is rather rare in the town and great when you're arriving late at night after work.

Fabulously located apartment on the hill above the harbour in Ilfracombe

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property and I would thoroughly recommend it. The location is outstanding, and the apartment itself is in a Georgian building which means lovely high ceilings, and a sense of spaciousness. The main bedroom and the lounge rooms are a good size and get the view. The other two bedrooms are well equipped; the back one is a single and is small, but perfectly adequate. There's loads of hot water, and the kitchen has everything you need. Having two bathrooms does ease the bath time load! However, only one WC in the shower room. Apartment was spotlessly clean on arrival. Overall, a very well equipped and comfortable place to stay. We loved it, and would come again.

Restaurants: I'd recommend Alfie and the Kaiser for a great steak meal, and order the sweet potato fries; they are delicious! Also the Rising Sun pub in nearby Lynton gave us a delicious Sunday lunch, which is worth a day trip ,especially to see the cliff railway. Do not visit La Gendarmerie; they wrote down the booking time incorrectly, were entirely unsympathetic, despite the restaurant only having 6 people in it , so they were virtually empty, and then gave our table away on a special birthday meal for family, turning us away, which left us traipsing around town for an hour and thankfully Alfie & the Kaiser came to the rescue, but not an ideal start to the evening. But we didn't let it spoil the holiday, and had a great time. Incidentally, there are lots of restaurants in town, but my advice is to book as they were all full on Saturday, and get it in writing if possible.

Lovely property with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Verify Views. The view from the window was beautiful and the apartment was very clean. The parking was very tight, and with having two cars we had to leave one overnight in a near by car park, but we then found you could park on the road between 6 pm and 10 am. Bit of a pain moving cars around but better than leaving the car in a possible empty car park overnight for a week. If we had any complaints it was the fact it was stated as two bathrooms, but there is actually only one toilet. The single bedroom is perfect for a child but is no where near the other bedrooms, luckily we had taken the monitor for our young daughter.

We had great communication from the owner, she was very helpful and responded to our questions and everything you need is supplied.

We did need to ring the housekeeper whilst we were there as we couldn't find the black bin to put our rubbish in, but she was very helpful and even came to take it away for us midweek!

We had good weather so had plenty of beach time, but we had lots of activities lined up if we weren't able to get to the beach.

We would definitely return to Ilfracombe and Verity Views in the future!

The property was easy to find, well decorated, clean and in a great location to walk into the town of Ilfracombe.

The town itself has plenty to offer, as does the area. Great for kids and adults alike. The town of Lynmouth was particularly lovely and we liked the beach at Hele Bay.

I would happily recommend the property to friends and family and wouldn't hesitate to stay myself again.

Amazing views at Verity Views

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment with amazing views, tastefully decorated, well equipped, very clean. Negatives:- dingy, dark shared hall & staircase, parking very difficult and only suitable for small cars, soft lumpy mattresses.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind words about the apartment and I'm glad you enjoyed the views, they are spectacular. I'm so sorry you had a lumpy mattress, these are new this season so if you're able to email me to let me know which room you stayed in then I shall get it replaced. We are working through a schedule of refurbishments of the communal areas, the outside of the building was decorated last week, and will be updating the hall shortly. The parking can be a bit tricky if the other spaces are occupied but being able to park right outside the front door is a bit of a luxury in Ilfracombe so I hope you felt the need for a bit of manouvering was worth it in the end.

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation is ideal for a family of 5 with teenage children. The apartment interior is well equipped, spacious, tastefully decorated and spotless. It is ideally located for a relaxing, peaceful holiday, throughout the week we only used our car once!

Ilfracombe is a pretty seaside harbour town, with plenty to do for a week, within walking distance of the property. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a tranquil stay in the North Devon area. And the views are second to none!

It sounds like you made the most of everything that Ilfracombe has to offer, and I hope you had time to try out some of the great restaurants within a stone's throw of the apartment. I look forward to having you to stay again in the future.
