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 North Devon

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 3rd 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

Inside the apartment offers a great space for entertaining with its sea views, high ceilings and contemporary decor. Staying here means you rarely have to get in your car. Once parked up in the private space provided, you can enjoy the promenade cafes, the harbour with its galleries, shops & eateries, scenic coastal walks, local beaches or the Landmark theatre. A short drive takes you to the stunning surf beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde or Saunton. 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. Being a new conversion, everything is decorated to a high standard and there is a modern thermostatically controlled heating system and for reassurance, a new carbon monoxide alarm installed May 2015.

Perfect location and apartment.

  • 5 of 5

From booking this place to leaving, it has all been a very pleasurable experience.

Letitia the owner and Angela who manages the property were both very helpful giving advice on the local area, as for the property it was first class.

Everything that you needed was there, from a fully fitted out kitchen to body boards for use on the beach. The location was spot on right bang in the middle of everything, restaurants were minutes walk away, harbour 5 minutes and Woolacombe 20 minutes drive away.

Would we stay here again?.........absolutely!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

My grandmother and I stayed at this wonderful apartment for 3 nights and we had the most wonderful stay. The private parking was easy to find and we were met by Angela as arranged. We were given 2 sets of keys (always useful if 2 couples!) and let ourselves in. We were blown away by the apartment as soon as we entered; It is stunning! Modern, bright, beautifully clean and tastefully furnished and accessorised. In the lounge there is a fantastic large TV and PS4 for those chilly evenings in, and fantastic views out of both sides of the apartment. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side being early march, so we were not able to enjoy the courtyard garden or either balconies, but i enjoyed the views through rain splashed glass nonetheless!

The kitchen diner is large and very well equipped, and the small touches we found on arrival such as tea, biscuits and wine made us feel right at home. The bedrooms are warm and welcoming and the beds amazingly comfortable. Both bathrooms are big, well designed and sparklingly clean.

Location-wise, this apartment is smack bang in the middle of everything; mere minutes from the harbour, most restaurants (something for all budgets) and the High street. There is easy access down the hill to Wilder Road to be able to drive and explore further afield, or buses can be caught just accross from the bottom of the hill.

The place oozes luxury and convenience, and I have never stayed anywhere so nice until now. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay :) I will definitely be back later this year!

New home from home

  • 5 of 5

We come to Ilfracombe regularly to visit family and have been looking for a new base.

Details and reviews of 10 Cove View looked encouraging and reality did not disappoint.

We loved the modern,light style of decorations and furnishings especially in the spacious living and kitchen areas.

We were greeted by the mangment team who were ensuring a sparkling clean welcome and who were helpful and efficient with a couple of queries during our stay.

Our favourite eating places, Giovanni and Lucca's and the restaurants in Fore Street, are nearby and it is a convenient walk to family homes.

Easy private parking is much appreciated.

It was ideal to be able to talk with Letitia about our needs and access arrangements.

We look forward to many happy returns.

Very well maintained with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a really enjoyable few days in Ilfracombe despite the variable weather. We liked the position of the property which was close to the promenade, town and harbour. The owner was very conscientious and the contact in Ilfracombe was very helpful. All in all excellent holiday.
