Centrally located for Ilfracombe’s main attractions, this apartment boasts amazing views from the living rooms and bedrooms.

The Admiral’s House - five well-furnished and equipped apartments (three feature here) - is stunningly located on the edge of Ilfracombe’s Heritage harbour with great harbour and beach views from all living rooms and bedrooms. A steep terraced garden accessed from the 2nd floor of the house is ideal for sunbathing, as a picnic area and for more great views. The Admiral’s House is centrally located for Ilfracombe’s main attractions. There are friendly pubs and restaurants, including Damien Hirst’s The Quay (opposite side of harbour), and shops, cafes within a few minutes’ stroll. There are local boats for trips and fishing; for special experiences, the summer Lundy Island ferry runs from the harbour, sometimes the famous Waverly Paddle Steamer offers coastal cruises. The Admirals’ House is a
5-minute walk to the Landmark Theatre; the path at the front of the house is the start of the coastal path leading to Hillsborough Nature Reserve and the coves of Reparee and Larksdown. Hele beach is a short walk, or there is paddling on the sandy beach just below the window. A great base for touring - surfing at Croyd and Woolacombe; cream teas at many gardens, NT properties; unspoilt Exmoor; the Victorian cliff railway at Lynton and Lynmouth; many mini theme parks within a short drive. Returning to the harbourside holiday apartment, fishing boats can be seen landing their catch, and crab and lobster can be bought for supper! Shops 100 yards.

Entrance with stairs to second floor: Living/dining room. Fitted kitchen. Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Stunning harbour views.

    Brilliant break just to be able to sit in a quiet spot immediately overlooking the harbour and the sea beyond whilst watching the cycle of the tides through the various windows is very therapeutic. The comfortable apartment on the top floor of this historic grade 2 listed building is ideal for two with a good size lounge and bedroom all overlooking the harbour and sea whilst the dining area, the well equipped kitchen and the ensuite bathroom face the large terraced garden at the back. The apartment reflects well on the friendly owners, Debs and Alastair, who do all they can to please whilst seeking to ensure that the accommodation is well maintained and equipped to a high standard. From this location everything in the town is within a short stroll. We would recommend considering contacting the Tourist Information in advance to get a parking permit as free parking in the road immediately outside is limited.

    We stayed at beginning of October. For us the mattress was too hard for comfort and the quilt was stiff and heavy - we did not sleep as well as we would have liked. We found the sofa uncomfortable as well. Very good location but not cosy.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. You will be pleased to know we have added a topper to the mattress and the sofa and armchair have been replaced.

    Great location for a break in Ilfracombe. We were made very welcome by the owner on arrival, however, we felt that kitchen could do with updating as this area let the rest of the apartment down. The sofa and chair were very uncomfortable as there was no support in the seats. These items of furniture, in our opinion, need replacing.

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am sorry you were disappointed in the apartment, you will be pleased to know the sofa and armchair have been replaced and the kitchen will be freshened up this year.
