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 Ilfracombe

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.

Views to die for

  • 5 of 5

The property is next to the sea, 10m away, and just sitting watching boats sail by and fishermen retrieving lobster pots is so therapeutic. What a joy. The property is very clean inside and vey little noise from adjoining properties. The seagulls can be annoying but that is what you have to bear with and does not detract from the quality of the apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Thanks apartment was lovely with a tremendous view.The only thing it lacked was some cooking pans etc Ilfracombe itself is a bit of an egnima as most of it is run down and scruffy but the harbour is lovely as are the views and most of the shops,bars and cafes in that area.

Owner's Response: There are plenty of cooking pans available in the apartment, so don't understand this comment. We love Ilfracombe - it is a very genuine working town.

A perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautifully appointed with quality equipment. Every need was catered for and the towels were a touch of luxury. The generous welcome gifts were a lovely surprise. Everywhere was beautifully clean and well maintained. All facilities were as described and all instructions and advice for keys etc. were easily followed. The view was amazing with mesmerising waves, whatever the weather. The apartment is situated very close to the harbour and we enjoyed walking round and choosing from the many places to stop for coffee, lunch or dinner. There is a great choice of restaurants. It was a perfect place to take walks by the coast and circle round through the town. The small beaches nearby were just lovely for checking out the rock pools. We had a wonderful restful holiday . The owners have shared a gem of a place with us and one we would certainly recommend to others and revisit ourselves. Hopefully very soon.
