Smeatons view is a beautiful holiday apartment. The views are amazing from all rooms in the property. The property is well equipped and has everything you need for a break away.

I would certainly recommended this property to family and friends it's wonderful. I should also mention that this property is only a short walk from some great shops, bars and restaurants.

Beautiful views

August 2016

Smeatons view is an amazing place to stay. My first stay was 3 years ago and I have returned once a year since. The views from the property are out of this world. The property is very clean and well equipped with things you may need on your holiday. The town centre is also very close to smeatons view roughly 10 minutes walk. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in the town centre. Over all my stay at smeatons view has been great and no doubt I will be returning there next year.

March 2016

The views are amazing, you are away from all the crowds in the town and the walk back up keeps you fit!

September 2015
