A clean, comfortable and well equipped apartment offering great value and views. The bathroom is en suite to the second bedroom but as we didn't have teenagers with us, that was no problem and there is a separate cloakroom. Access is via fairly steep steps and the property is quite high up the hill, so not ideal for the infirm, but it is close to amenities, with several excellent restaurants nearby.
Beautiful apartment which has been thoughtfully put together Spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend; I would though point out isn't necessarily suitable to anyone with mobility problems as the apartment is up a steep hill, which affords it breathtaking views, there are also a number of steps leading to the property.
Finally, the owners were extremely helpful from the word go and up to the day of departure when they confirmed the return of the deposit.
The apartment was beautifully decorated and well equipped - we loved the games cupboard. The views are amazing and you can watch gorgeous sunsets from the comfort of the sofa. Nearby Woolacombe beach was great for body boarding and we really enjoyed visiting Exmoor Zoo. The owners could not have been more helpful when we had a problem with the washing machine and communication with the owners was excellent. Thanks for a really enjoyable holiday.
Great week at Seagrass. Ilfracombe is a nice town and it was great to only be a few minutes from the centre (albeit with a steep walk back). We have a big car and the parking had plenty of space for us. The Internet was good and Netflix meant rainy days were covered. All in all, a stress free week in a clean, cosy and quiet flat with a fantastic view of a lovely and reasonably priced seaside town.
Lovely break in well furnished apartment
What a lovely break! We've enjoyed 4 nights at seagrass, and would happily rebook/recommend!
The climb to seagrass is quite steep and was a workout with a pushchair, and the apartment is down a number is stone steps then up to the apartment once in the building, but it didn't pose a problem for us and we don't travel light with a 7 month old!
The photographs of the apartment don't do it justice! It is a good size with a large bathroom and second bedroom. The kitchen is really well equipped with plenty of crockery etc, and even sandwich boxes for picnics! And there is lots of storage space. The owners have provided pretty much everything. The high chair was clean and in good condition, as was the travel cot, there are even buckets for making sandcastles!
The Seaview is far more spectacular than the pictures suggest and the apartment is well insulated so that we heard nothing from above or below. The double bedroom did get hot with the 3 of us in there, so if taking a baby be sure to take their summer bedding! Also we took our gro blackout blinds which was really useful as the rooms are very bright in the morning (we were lucky to have sunshine!)
Communication from owners was excellent and the deposit was refunded quickly. Ilfracombe is a delightful place with plenty to do. Would recommend Woolacombe 15 mins away for a gorgeous sandy beach!
Real pleasure to book and stay.

Seagrass is a clean and beautifully furnished apartment with fantastic views of Ilfracombe and the sea. It had everything we needed for our week long stay and was just as comfortable as being at home which was important as we were bringing our 4 month old baby and therefore going to be spending evenings in...Netflix and wifi were definitely a bonus! It had central heating so we were cosy when the wind was howling outside and the beds were very comfortable. The car parking space was handy and we were a short walk away from centre and harbour so the flat is in a great location. Communication with the owners was really good and we enjoyed trying out the places to eat that they'd recommended and also buying meat from the local butcher they'd suggested to make our evening meals at home in the well equipped kitchen. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend Seagrass to friends and family if they were ever going to Ilfracombe.
