Lower-ground-floor studio apartment with its own private seafront patio, right on the water’s edge in the popular North Devon town of Ilfracombe, within walking distance of the town’s amenities.

Located on the stunning North Devon Coast with its own seafront patio, this pretty studio apartment is the perfect choice for a romantic break along with the two furry loves in your life. Enjoying a great location in the harbour town of Ilfracombe, it’s within walking distance of dog-friendly beaches, restaurants and shops. It’s also ideal for exploring the South West Coast Path and nearby Exmoor National Park.

This charming home is enviably situated on the cliff edge and offers a homely and relaxing base for your break. It’s accessed by a flight of stairs which take you to its lower-ground-floor location. Inside, you’ll find everything you need cleverly contained in one living space, which is dominated by spectacular views out to sea. Whip up a tasty snack or a meal for two in the well-equipped kitchen, before taking a seat at the fold-out dining table. Open the patio door to the garden and let the hounds wander in and out as you settle down on the sofa to enjoy a film together. The double bed conveniently folds down at night, meaning it can be stowed away during the day to maximise the room’s space. Step outside and enjoy some al fresco dining in the patio garden, as you watch the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean.

Wander around the town’s harbour area where you’ll find some super places to shop, eat and drink. Hop on one of the many pleasure cruises that leave from here - many welcome well-behaved dogs! Don’t miss the chance to visit Exmoor National Park (11 miles) which offers some fantastic rural walks. The popular beaches of Woolacombe (6.5 miles) and Putsborough (9.5 miles) are also great for restless paws wanting to let off some steam.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The location and property were absolutely spot on. Negatives would be lack of parking, and during our stay builders and scaffolding were intruding on our stay. Builders shouting and radio blasting away.

The flat is in a fabulous location, walking distance to everything. It's very quiet and relaxing, you can hear the waves on the rocks below and the seagulls. It's comfortable and equipped with everything you need.

Superb 7 day stay, everything was in place for our needs, the small secure courtyard that backed onto a great rock/sea view was brilliant for the two small Yorkie dogs we had with us to wonder in and out of the cottage. Some would say compact but it worked for us and only 5 mins walk to the harbour. Great view, good walks, car parking organised andRead more a nice welcome pack to enjoy, all good. Hide
