On arrival to the apartment, we were amazed at how clean and sparkly it looked, it was as good as new. It was very spacious and had a lot of light coming in from the floor to ceiling window. The view was amazing, and the 8 sheep outside had a lot of character, especially when they had a mad 5 minutes chasing and head-butting each other! The apartment catered for all ages, my 4 year old daughter was very pleased with the choice of DVD’s, games and children’s books and my Mum, Dad and I were equally as pleased with a selection for us too. We all had a good few games of Jenga! There is everything you could possible need in the apartment, and instruction manuals for just about everything. My daughter was pleased to have kids cutlery with crabs and starfish on, that made her day! The apartment is beautifully decorated and nothing can be faulted. The beds were extremely comfortable as were the sofas. The doorstops were a nice touch and also the lovely pictures on the wall, I could have spent a long time studying the map in the kitchen. The wifi worked well for us, it dropped out a couple of times, but who needs wifi when you have the delights of Ilfracombe right in front of you. The apartment is very close to the High Street shops and it’s not a long walk down to the harbour via Fore Street. There is so much to see and do in Ilfracombe, this apartment is in the perfect place, it’s a little gem!
Thanks to the owners for letting us stay and to Claire for the welcome message and doing a great job, we’ll be back in August.

We have rented “On the Rocks” apartments for 3 years and if never fails to meet our expectations. Very clean and confortable with great views. Thank you

The service offered was courteous & friendly from beginning to end. The property could only be described as excellent. We arrived at night, so on awakening the next morning were delighted with the view. A few hundred yards from town down a steep hill, with the seafront about the same distance beyond that. We had a lovely week and would happily recommend to others. Thank-you.

This place is a jem. Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and with huge windows with views out over the town and the sea. I would recomend this to anyone.

The apartment is fully equipped and beautifully decorated. The views are stunning with the harbour and high street only a short walk away. We would love to stay there again.

Lovely stay at On the Rocks 12-19 July 2014. Well equipped and spacious apartment with fantastic views, and just a short walk in to Ilfracombe. Will recommend!

We had a wonderful stay at ‘On the Rocks’. The apartment was beautifully furnished and very comfortable and the views were just stunning. Ilfracombe is a great base and a nice place with some lovely restaurants.
Many thanks

The apartment was fantastic , so peacefull and in a superb location for travelling around!

Elizabeth & Chris 2014.4.21 08:36
Chris and I had a fantastic break in Ilfracombe and the apartment played its role in that. It was absolutely prefect, the interior design was of such a high standard, and it proved to be an extremely welcoming space to arrive back to after a day’s coastal walk.

Sue Bruce 2014.4.1 16:28
A lovely apartment, really well equipped and comfortable with the extra bonus of a parking space. The view is stunning and the short but steep walk to the town and harbour kept us fit! Many thanks for a great holiday – we will be back.

Gillian & Martin 2013.9.18 14:38
We enjoyed staying in your apartment. Everything was very bright cheerful & clean. It was so nice to wake up with a sea view. and we enjoyed watching the sheep. The seaside pictures & nick nacks were just perfect and we were pleasantly surprised by the wine & chocolate. Thanks for making this such a nice apartment to stay in

We recently got married at the Tunnels Beaches and booked the apartment for a week. We were so please we did! It was the perfect place to get ready for our wedding and to enjoy our honeymoon after. Jim and Lynne were so kind- on arrival they had left us a ‘congratulations’ card, and wedding gifts! We were really wowed by the apartment and the kind generousity of the owners. The apartment was beautifully decorated and well equipped- everything you could need and of high quality. The DVD’s and board games came in handy to keep our son occupied on rainy days! Location was great with sea views and we could easily walk down to the harbour and beach. Thanks again ‘ on the rocks’. We will definatley be coming back!

Julie & Emily 2013.6.26 19:59
Jim and Lynn, Thank you so much. We’ve had a lovely stay at your beautiful apartment. It’s a really peaceful and idyllic location with a lovely view and you made us feel very welcome with your arrival drinks and chocolates! We must compliment you on the decoration! Also you’ve thought of everything with your well stocked cupboards and drawers of books, games, DVDs and of course local brochures. We hope to be back again and hope you have the availability for us!

Many thanks

The apartment is beautifully presented and has everything you will need for a stay in Ilfracoombe. Lovely comfortable beds, large bathroom, well equipped kitchen and even a great selection of DVDs which kept the children happy when the weather was wet.
Thank you for a lovely stay and the chocolates… much appreciated!!

Eine wunderschöne Ferienwohnung, toll eingerichtet und super ausgestattet. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und alles funktinierte. Der Ausblick auf die See und auf den Sonnenuntergang war herrlich. Die Wohnung entsprach voll unereren Erwartungen. Sehr zu empfehlen diese Ferienwohnung.

Arran & Chloe 2013.5.10 19:36
I highly recommend this beautiful apartment. We felt at home as soon we arrived, everything you could possibly need is available for your use, this is the type of place you could stay in for weeks and weeks. You can tell a lot of hard work and money has gone into the refurbishment, and the end result is absolutely wonderful. We were really impressed with the amount of entertainment provided – from a range of contemporary DVD’s to board games, suitable for all ages. The beach and the harbour are both a short walk away from the apartment, and there are a large variety of places to eat out. We recommend this place to anyone, and we can’t wait to come back!

We spent a few days in Ilfracombe at the end of April 2013 for our daughter’s wedding at Tunnels Beaches. The quality of the apartment was excellent. It was very clean and well decorated and furnished and well equipped which was important as we had to cater for the bride and bridesmaids prior to the wedding. The weather was quite chilly but the central heating was efficient and there was plenty of hot water for showers etc. Booking the apartment was straightforward and the owners were very helpful. If we ever return to Ilfracombe we would book On the Rocks again and would certainly recommend it to family and friends visiting the area.

Mark H 2013.4.18 17:38
I have to agree with all other guests. On The Rocks is a fantastic, spacious apartment, finished and furnished to a very high standard. The huge windows in the lounge and front bedroom give great views over Ilfracombe and out to sea. A parking space is provided at the rear, plus wifi and dvds and board games – if you’re at a loose end. Thoroughly recommended – we’ll be back.

Colin and Janet 2012.12.31 16:16
A lovely apartment equipped and decorated to a very high standard. Felt at home as soon as we arrived. Every thing spotlessly clean. The apartment is modern but still maintains that warm comfortable feel. We had a great chill out week over Christmas. The internet allowed us to communicate with the family and we could even get a telephone signal in the back room. There is a dedicated car parking space so no need to worry about this every time you go out. Great views from the front apartment. Highly recommended.

Mark Lloyd 2012.10.23 17:21
A lovely apartment – great location, beautifully presented, wonderful views. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week there and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Margaret & Ron 2012.8.27 20:12
On the rocks is a lovely apartment, well equipped, beautifully presented and with a great sea view. It’s in a good location for walking down to the harbour area (and you get fit walking back up the steep hill!) and we would highly recommend it.

Mark and Hils 2012.8.22 21:40
An excellent apartment with everything you could ask for. We really enjoyed our stay. The bedrooms are spacious, very nicely decorated, and the whole apartment is contemporary and clean. The view is fantatic. And plenty of DVDs, books, games, etc for when the weather is off. The location is very good, although not for the infirm (it’s on a steep hill), and a 5 minute walk takes you to the sea front or Fore Street, which has the nicest restaurants in town.
The owners are very quick to help in all respects if required.
We really enjoyed our trips to nearby Woolacombe (15 minutes), Puttsbro Sands (15), and Lynton (25). A lovely place to stay.

Tony and Helen 2012.8.2 13:54
We had a very nice week in Ilfracombe at ‘On the Rocks’ in June. The apartment was bright, with a lovely sea view, nicely decorated, very comfortable and clean. We would definitely return to the apartment if we were in North Devon again.

Karen Farmer 2012.7.15 21:32
I just have to share my thoughts about this apartment and hope it inspires you to book too!!
What a wonderful weekend we have just had. Two dear friends and I now have an abundance of wonderful memories… starting with the moment we stepped inside this immaculate apartment….. breathtaking views, every home comfort you could wish for, plush surroundings, clean and fresh and so so welcoming.
Ilfracombe is such a pleasure to visit with a working harbour, individual shops (no same, same chains we have had to endure with many towns!) and great places to eat…. Our choice was a fish restaurant with fresh catches of the day and tastes we all drooled over!!
The following day we took the short drive to Putsborough Sands and walked along the sandy beach barefoot to Woolacombe Bay where we sat on the beach with fresh cooked fish and chips enjoying all the sights and sounds of happy people and families soaking up the well needed British sunshine 🙂
This weekend was about chilling, laughter, fabulous food and the icing on the cake for me….the best night’s sleep I have had in months…..”Just the Tonic”… my respect and a huge thanks to the owners for an unforgettable experience. xxx

what can i say about perfection
the apartment is the nicest accomadation ive stayed in in a long time in england
spotlessly clean throughout,beds comfortable,pillows heavenly,fully equipped kitchen,consant hot water
the long weekend in june we stayed were very wet,it was great to get back to apartment after being out and about getting soaked to get a drink and look at views or pick a dvd to watch if nothing on tv or read a book from a selection there as i forgot to take my book with me.
its all the extra things the owners of this apartment have thought of that makes it home from home well done

T Jones 2012.6.4 10:44
We had a great weekend in Ilfracombe. What a lovely apartment, beautifully decorated throughout. The children loved their room and loved the map jigsaw (which was done several times!) and books. Every little detail had been thought of.

Rachel M 2012.5.22 21:33
We had a lovely week staying in the appartment which more than lived up to it’s description. ‘On the Rocks’ has a spacious relaxed feel with great views from the two large front windows to Capstone Hill, sea, sheep and sunsets! Ilfracombe and the surrounding area has lots to offer. We did a variety of scenic walks from the appartment.

Gary & maxine 2012.5.3 19:20
We had a fantastic weekend in a beautiful apartment. It is beautifully decorated to a high spec with perfect views. We will be definately be going back and would highly recommend ON THE ROCKS.

N Barton October 2011 2012.3.24 20:35
On the Rocks is a fantastic holiday rental. As you enter the flat you are taken back by the amazing view from the large window. The flat has everything you need and more. Very clean and tidy .Stylish interior. Position of the flat in Ilfracombe is central to everywhere. 10 mins from Barnstaple & Saunton Sands & short distance from Lynton & Lynmouth. Will definitely be returning.

Jackie M October 2011 2012.3.24 20:34
We really enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again. The apartment is spacious, spotless and has the most wonderful views. The finishing touches such as the games and dvds were a delight to find. Incredibly comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen were the icing on the cake! Very happy to have found this place and hope to return soon. thank you.

An excellent, well equipped apartment. Superbly located for exploring North Devon.

Holiday 186424 2012.3.24 20:32
We had a lovely stay in Ilfracombe but was that was also down to coming home to a beautiful apartment after a busy day. The apartment is so well equipped you don’t need to take anything with you, it is bright, clean and modern. we were very impressed.

Tuktuktours July 2011 2012.3.24 20:32
The apartment is equipped to a very high standard with everything you need for a holiday – with a lot of thought to those with young children. Beautifully clean and well maintained it was a fantastic place to stay and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

Janbry July 2011 2012.3.24 20:31
Really love this apartment which is in a great location with amazing views from the large sash windows. It’s really spacious, clean and the decor is gorgeous, just how you want a seaside home to be. Wi-fi is an added bonus. You are soon down the hill into town for shops and eating places, of which there are loads to choose from. The apartment is well equipped with everything you could need and also loads of information on places to go, things to do etc. Nothing not to like.

Ladyjhep June 2011 2012.3.24 20:30
Had a fantastic week away in a comfortable, well appointed, modern and clean apartment. The views from the bedroom and living room were stunning. The beds were so comfortable and the rooms spacious. There was lots of information to hand to help you plan your holiday and plenty of games and dvd’s to keep you entertained. It was well fitted out for babies and young children, with a high chair, cot bed and bedding. Ilfracombe has something to offer everyone, however if you wish to travel a bit further there is lots to see in Devon too. A fabulous holiday.

Peter & Roelinke Streurman 2011.10.3 07:51

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your superb hospitality and for the wonderfully furnished and comfortable apartment you created. It was my pleasure to stay there. There wasn’t a single thing that wouldn’t work or that I could fault.

The Hollowood Family 2010.11.1 21:29
Thank you so much for a really wonderful place to stay in Ilfracombe. The apartment was everything we could have wished for and more. Extemely well equipped and our children loved finding the DVD’s, games and books – they felt really spoilt ! Beautifully decorated throughout and unbelievably comfortable bed in main bedroom, we didn’t want to come home. Thank you once again for making our stay a very comfortable and relaxing one.

Catherine and Anthony 2010.9.6 17:35
We have just had a glorious sunny week in North Devon made even more special by the beautifully decorated, luxurious and extremely comfortable apartment. The attention to detail is very impressive and gives a real boutique hotel feel to the apartment. We would happily recommend this apartment and would definitely visit again.
