Andy met us at the flat and showed us where to park the car (manoeuvring in and out could be a bit awkward if you have a long car). The flat is superb. We found it warm and cosy. The bed is comfortable, and the shower powerful and hot. The views from the lounge and kitchen are amazing. It’s in a great location, just a very short walk into town. We’d definitely book again.

A superb apartment with views overlooking the sea splashing against the rocks and within a few minutes’ walk from the harbour and shops and pubs/restaurants. A clean and comfortable ‘home from home’ feel on the top floor of a building with added benefit of parking space. Large bedroom with lots of clothes storage, lovely lounge with large comfortable sofa/bed. Fitted kitchen with all appliances, powerful shower. The owner’s communication was great from the outset. We’ll definitely be back!

Crest Apartments Apartment 4 is beautifully furnished throughout. It is spotlessly clean. The kitchen is well appointed and has all the facilities to cook a sumptuous meal if you so desire. Andy the owner met us at the front door to show us around. He was most helpful having even put some milk in the fridge and warmed the apartment through. Everything for the holiday maker is included in the apartment. Andy was also able to recommend a good Indian restaurant which proved to be a good choice.

This is a pleasant apartment with all amenities for 2 people. It offers a fantastic view of the sea. You will be at 5 minutes walking distance from the port and the coast path starts just outside the door. Please note that the apartment comes with a reserved parking space. This is convenient but the space to drive in and out is particularly tight, especially if you have a fairly large car. Apart from that, this is a perfect place to stay for those who want to explore the North Devon coast and Exmoor. Communication with Andy was smooth and the apartment fully matched the description.

This apartment has the wow factor with regard to the view. We loved listening to the sound of the sea and watching the early morning sunrise which is spectacular. The apartment is situated in a perfect location, is spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment or make a further booking.

We arrived early, but our host (Andy) was very accommodating and allowed us the key early.. ..The flat is absolutely amazing....a real home from home.....Everything is catered for you washing machine, dishwasher, fridge & freezer..Decent shower, and the Bedwas very comfortable. But the most spectacular thing about this place is the view, it absolutely takes your breath away. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Crest Apartments .Thank you Andy, we'll be back.

We had 11 very cosy, comfy nights in this little gem of an apartment with fantastic sea views and an ideal location in Ilfracombe near the harbour and the coast path. It definitely has a wow factor in furnishings & facilities with plentiful toilet rolls, cleaning items, dishwasher & washer/dryer. Andy even left us some fresh milk & biscuits as well as tea, coffee & sugar. Every day we were out walking the South West Coast path in all weather's so coming back to a super warm home was just what we needed in February. We definitely enjoyed (possibly too much!!) having the Admiral Collingwood pub in walking distance. Having a dedicated parking space was great too and communication with Andy about our booking before our arrival was much appreciated. I can't recommend this place enough!! I was sad to leave but with Storm Eunice on the way we definitely chose the right week!!

About the neighborhood
Ilfracombe is a traditional and historic Victorian seaside town on the spectacular North Devon Coast and is extremely popular with holiday makers young and old. The harbour area features a variety of shops and resturaunts, including Damian Hursts, and from here you can book a fishing trip or embark on the Lundy Island voyage. Across the harbour is the imposing Hillsborough cliffs with its nature walk and Iron Age fort Also nearby is the Capstone hill and the Torrs walk, a fabulous walk along the cliff edge which can take you (if your feeling fit!) to Woolacombe and its beautiful beach. The busy high-street features many independent retailers and has a old-worldly and friendly feel, and the town also has more nationally recognised shops with Tesco and Lidl nearby.
Getting around
If you don’t want to use your car the nearest bus stop is 2 minutes walk from the Apartment, buses run every 20 minutes and will take you Braunton or to Barnstaple for the more major shops. Why not venture further to Bideford or Westward Ho! or to beautiful Clovelly?? Travel East and visit Combe Martin or the Valley of the Rocks! Go explore North Devon!!
