“Illfracombe's 4 star secret”
After having a stressfull few months since my husbands stroke, we had an all too short stay (4 nights), in this wonderful apartment. I am a very fussy "renter" - the first impression for me is the smell of a rental. The smell in Cove View was clean, clean, clean, which reflected the cleanliness of the whole apartment. Whoever has furnished and outfitted this apartment has done it with comfort in mind. The bed is heavenly, the sofas, (more later), really comfy, the bathroom and the en-suite are perfect, and the kitchen and dining area lack for nothing. Being a bit of a foodie, I always take my own sharp knives, but, mine weren't needed. Back to the sofas - they are usually an area that gets a lot of use in rentals and some show signs of age, but these are wonderful, I even watched tv in my pyjamas sat on them. I love balconies and this apartment has THREE! It was really warm when we were there, we opened the doors, put bags and chairs to stop them banging, and had a fantastic through breeze - heaven. Perhaps I shouldn't be singing this apartments praises too much, we might find it difficult to find it vacant next time, but, it's one of top three that we have stayed in, along with rentals on Cape Cod and Captiva Island in Florida. Clean, fresh, homely, comfortable and centrally placed. Good food at La Gendarmerie, 11 The Quay (Damien Hirst's restaurant) and Giovanni and Luca's. Have a pint of real ale at the award winning Ship and Pilot. Thanks James and Angela (caretaker), we had a much needed break in a wonderful setting.
Just returned from a short break to Cove View in Ilfracombe. Have stayed in many high quality hotels/apartments and have to say this property is up there with the best of them. Every creature comfort you could want, furnished to a very high standard, and the bed!! The comfiest nights sleep we've ever had! Amazing places to explore locally, be sure to check out the Sea Safari (ask them for an additional 1/2 hr if you want some serious addrenalin fun! Good restaurants locally and brilliant for exploring the gorgeous coastline. All in all a top stay, We will definately be back!
Thank you for your review of 3 Cove View. We're really pleased you liked the apartment and enjoyed your stay. Best wishes. James Low
