The Garden Suite is a spacious, grand apartment sleeping two people (adults only). Situated within walking distance of Ilfracombe’s town centre and the well-known Tunnels Beaches, access to the apartment is through a gated entrance, down a path and to a private front door. The large living room has a woodburning stove for cooler evenings, a Parquet floor, plenty of comfy seats and two opulent glass cabinets either side of the fireplace. Guests are welcome to use the owners own garden. A sunroom overlooks this and is a mature, enclosed garden and has seating and a table; whilst the large kitchen is well-equipped and has a walk-in larder for extra storage. There is a useful utility/drying room with a washing machine – perfect for drying wetsuits and walking attire. The bedroom is, like the rest of the apartment, beautifully furnished and has patio door leading out onto the garden; and the modern, fully-tiled wet room has a large headed shower with an additional handheld attachment. The Garden Suite is a short walk from Ilfracombe town centre and harbour area, which has a wide choice of shops, restaurants and bars. Outdoor activities available include coastal walks, a variety of boat trips from the pier including one to the dramatic Lundy Island, the popular Tunnels Beaches and seeing a show at the eye-catching Landmark Theatre. In a 2005 Radio Times opinion poll, Lundy was named as Britain's tenth greatest natural wonder. The entire island has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and it is managed by the Landmark Trust on behalf of the National Trust. Ilfracombe has a delightful mix of Victorian and Regency architecture, pretty harbour, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. The harbour, along with Damien Hirst’s bronze statue Verity, is just a few minutes’ walk away, along with the award-winning Ilfracombe Aquarium, fascinating Ilfracombe Museum, Larkstone Leisure Park, Hele Cornmill and Chambercombe Manor - one of Britain's most haunted houses.

Lyn and D,

We had a lovely week at The Garden Suite. Such a well appointed place. We enjoyed trips to Lynmouth and Woolacombe. Really enjoyed the banana cake! We'll be sorry to leave. Thanks again

Enjoyed our stay very much! The Garden Suite is simply beautiful, you have thought about everything. All your little notes and tips have been so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for you. Thank you.
