From the owner

On the Rocks is a much loved, well equipped, two bedroom holiday apartment with panoramic sea views over Capstone. The apartment is on the first floor of a Grade II listed Georgian terrace, in a peaceful, serene location, overlooking the historic Brockshole Field (complete with grazing sheep) to the sea. Ilfracombe Harbour and Fore Street are within a 5 minute walk, and offer a selection of excellent restaurants, including a newly awarded Michelin starred restaurant, Thomas Carr at the Olive Room (the Olive Room is small, so book early to avoid disappointment!). The Tunnels beaches are also a short stroll away.

This ideally located apartment has two bedrooms (one with double bed, one with twin beds) and can comfortably sleep four adults, with room for a travel cot (provided, along with high chair) in either bedroom if needed. Both the master bedroom and the living room have large sash windows with fantastic views out to sea. The living room has plenty of comfortable seating and a Smart TV, with BBC, ITV and Channel 4 iPlayer, NetFlix, Amazon on Demand etc. There is also a DVD player, with a good selection of DVDs, books and games. The living room adjoins a well equipped kitchen area (including washer-dryer), with a dining table which can comfortably seat 4-5. Free Wi-Fi is also provided.

There is an allocated parking space at the rear of the terrace, where the communal entrance is located. However, you may not need to move your car, as there is so much within walking distance: for nature lovers there are beautiful coves and cliff top walks; for culture lovers there are art galleries, cinema and theatre, and of course, Damien Hirst’s gallery and sculpture “Verity” at the end of the harbour wall; for foodies there are great pubs and restaurants, and an excellent local butcher, fishmonger and greengrocer as well as several bakers. Further afield, it is a 15 minute drive to Woolacombe Beach, Croyde and Saunton Sands - and Exmoor and the Tarka Trail are on the doorstep. We love Ilfracombe, we hope you do too!

Changeover day is generally Saturday but may be negotiated out of peak season. Arrival time is usually after 4pm and departure is by 10am although this may be flexible when discussed with our Housekeeper.

Short breaks (minimum of 3 days) out of peak season can be arranged.

Note: The rear entrance is sunny and welcoming, however, there are some steps leading down from the car park to the ground floor entrance, and some stairs internally to the second floor, so it may not be suitable for people with mobility issues. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on this, or on anything else about On the Rocks.
