Up above Ilfracombe, a short (steep) walk from the high st. Great views of Capstone Hill and the sea on each side. Well equipped, clean and tastefully decorated (well, it suited our taste!). We loved the comfy bed, decor, views, allocated parking place, attention to detail, floor to ceiling sash windows. Would recommend a thermostatically controlled shower mixer (2 taps are tricky to set & maintain temperature), and a second shower if there are more than 2 staying (bathroom accessed via a bedroom).
Stayed here for a fantastic weekend. Perfect location overlooking Ilfracombe with an amazing sea view. The apartment is very clean and well looked after. We found cooking and cleaning essentials provided... everything we needed apart from the food really. The apartment has everything you need for a nice stay. The only criticism I could think of is that wheelchair access is restricted as you enter via a set of steps but apart from that PERFECT !
We stayed for the first week in May, the apartment is great, very good location, it's own parking, very well equipped kitchen and good quality beds and sofas, oh and my wife loves the curtains.
We stayed here as a family of four over the Easter holidays. We stay in self-catering accommodation a lot and found this apartment to be one of the nicest properties we have stayed in - very good value for money. The property was tastefully furnished and everything supplied was good quality with John Lewis crockery, decent glasses and nice little touches with seaside themed mugs and décor. We enjoyed exploring the local area and the range of galleries in Ilfracombe to potter around and good places to eat - all very easy to access from the apartment. The kids decreed that Joey's down near the harbour did the best icecreams which we enjoyed tucking into after walking the coast path from Lynmouth to Woolacombe over two days of the holiday (stunning views and scenery but very hilly!). We took the kids (15 and 12 years) to the Ultimate Adventure Centre in Bideford for a morning of activities which they loved - recommend that for anyone with kids looking for something fun to do. All in all it has been a great week and we'd thoroughly recommend On the Rocks.
The apartment is beautifully furnished and the utensils and accessories are all of high quality. We stayed over New Year and although the weather was not the best we did not mind, the apartment was comfortable, warm and spacious, just right for wasting a winter's day with a good book. We arrived on Friday evening in thick fog - what a wonderful surprise when we woke the next morning, the apartment is in an elevated position which overlooks a small field and beyond the rooftops on the other side is Capstone Hill and the sea - beautiful! Eager to get out, the walk to the point we could see took about 15 minutes (mostly downhill!) and from there we walked along the coastal path and watched a school of porpoises. Ilfracombe was very quite, most places were shut for winter but that did not detract at all; we had a very relaxing few days and we would highly recommend this apartment, clean, warm, extremely comfortable and a beautiful view, perfect.
On The Rocks really is a gorgeous apartment. It is spotlessly clean and all the decor is beautiful and so tasteful.
The view when you first walk in is literally breathtaking, in fact it's breathtaking everytime you walk back into the apartment!
It's all very well equipped to a very high standard. The double bed is extremely comfortable and warm. The welcome milk in the fridge and tea and coffee is a lovely touch.
It's just a couple of minutes walk to the high street and just under 10 minutes to the harbour which is beautiful, such a lovely place to sit and relax. The walk back is up a steep hill,although I am unwell and not fit I managed it perfectly well at my own pace and it was definitely worth it to stay in that apartment.
All of the correspondence with the owners was very efficient and friendly.
We really haven't got anything negative to point out. We had a wonderful relaxing week in a beautiful apartment which we would highly recommend and we very much look forward to returning!!
