The apartment was beautifully furnished and decorated as well as very clean.. It was very warm and comfortable and well equipped.
There was a stunning view from the dining table and the bedroom.
We found the owners very helpful and friendly.
It was centrally located and we found Ilfracombe to be a beautiful town in a lovely part of Devon.
Beautifully situated for the harbour and town.. The view from the windows was wonderful overlooking the harbour beach. Parking can be a problem, but we did mange 4 out of 7 nights in the road outside the flat - no charge. We did not buy a weekly parking permit but would advise it in peak holiday times. Two of the three nearest car-parks have free parking after 6.00 pm through to 8.00 am. So get up early to feed the parking ticket machine for any extra time you need. The long term car-parks are the most economical but not the nearest to the flat. Overall a great flat and location, would use again.
Jellicoe is one of 5 apartments in the building and the only one with 2 levels.. The other 4 appear to be 2 bed apartments and they are all on one level each.
It is possible to view the harbour at Ilfracombe as the property has a Tourist department webcam mounted on the roof of the building. This gives a number of views of the harbour area and a better idea of the facilities locally. The link to the webcam is here:
Although the Sykes description indicates that parking is available outside the property, in practice it was impossible for me to get a spot. Solution is to buy a 4 or 7 day long term parking ticket costing approx £12 for 4 days and £20.80 for 7 days. Long term parking is only about 200 metres from Jellicoe. The ticket also allows parking at some other towns long term parking across the North Devon area, including Lynmouth esplanade.
