About the Owner

We are Darren and Leanne Weekes and we live in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire with our 2 children. We fell in love with Ilfracombe and the rest of North Devon in 2007 when we came on holiday here with our 2 girls. We genuinely believe Ilfracombe is the nicest town in Devon and we are amazed every time we come here just how much one small seaside town has to offer. We also think that the restaurants offer some of the nicest food around and the people are so lovely and welcoming.

We bought No. 5 Searock in March 2014. We had been searching for our perfect holiday ‘bolt hole’ for over a year. The apartment needed a bit of refurbishment, which was completed in July 2014.

Great apartment for short getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here two nights in October 2016. Ideal location, fantastic views and brilliantly equipped kitchen. Everything you could need and more in this great apartment. Very clean and modern, right on the seafront in Ilfracombe with all the attractions within easy walking distance, just make sure you get the allocated parking space. Loved it and will be back.

Fantastic Apartment with balcony and stunning Sea Views

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant holiday staying in this fabulous apartment. The apartment is clean, luxurious and has everything you need, including some children's toys and board games. The balcony is a great feature where you can spend many hours enjoying the views and people watching. The apartment is in a good location, only minutes walk from the harbour, pubs, shops, high street and restaurants. The bus stop is also just over the road. Despite being so close to everything there was no problem with noise. We would highly recommend this apartment and Ilfracombe is a beautiful place, with lots of great coastal walks and a very pretty harbour. We will definitely stay, and holiday here, again.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

Clean & well equipped but could have done with a pair of oven gloves as we cooked a few meals in the apartment! Wifi would have been great but after talking to locals I understand that wifi signals aren't great in Ilfracombe. Lovely holiday overall. Thanks very much Leanne. 😄

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are really glad you enjoyed your stay. We are looking into getting WIFI into the flat and hopefully it will be in place very soon. Also, thank you for letting us know we need to buy a new oven glove (the one we had may have gone for a wander).

Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a perfect location with a lovely sea front view from the balcony. Shops, bars and restaurants are all within easy walking distance and the picturesque harbour is situated minutes away. The layout of the apartment is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped with everything needed to prepare meals (although with the range of restaurants nearby it is tempting to eat out). There is plenty to do in the area with Coombe Martin wildlife park and Watermouth castle being among our favourites.

From the Owner

Ilfracombe is a fantastic town to enjoy, in a picturesque setting and a perfect base from which to explore the fabulous surrounding coast and countryside. The apartment block could not be in a better location with an amazing view from the balcony that has the most beautiful sunsets.

Searock apartments are 500m from the nearest beach and a 5 minute stroll from the famous and beautiful harbour. It is just a 15 minute walk from nearby coves and the amazing Tunnels Beaches. The famous sandy surfing beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde are a 20 minute drive away.

Wonderful cliff top walks, dramatic beach coves and quaint villages are just minutes away (including walks and cycling on the Tarka trail).


The apartment block is at the end of Wilder Road (on the seafront), located between the church and the Wetherspoon's pub. It is directly across the road from the crazy golf course.

The National Express runs a coach service directly to Ilfracombe. The bus station is a 3 minute walk away from the apartments.

The Victorian Tunnel Beaches (with a great cafe with children’s play area and free wi-fi) is a great place for the kids and family members of all ages. Emmanuel Church opposite the museum, holds regular art exhibitions.

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.

From the Owner

Situated on the sea front and close to the harbour, beaches and town, our apartment has everything you need for a really enjoyable holiday or short break. Despite the amazing food the restaurants have to offer, our apartment is fully equipped for you to enjoy easy, 'home from home' living. The South West facing balcony captures the sun all day long and offers a perfect place to take in the scenes and sunsets and to 'chill out' after a long day sight-seeing, surfing or ‘hanging out’ in North Devon. The apartment suits families, couples and friends who can do as much or as little as they like.

Although there is one free parking space allocated to Searock No. 5, to the side of the building we cannot guarantee that it will be free for our holiday guests.

Currently, a Long stay parking permit for 1 week is only £20.80 and can be used in all long stay car parks in North Devon, which is well worth purchasing for a week’s holiday.

Utility Room: Communal Utility Room across the hall from the apartment has washing/dryer machine and an ironing board.
