Cooked breakfast was very good, with several options available, and served in a large, comfortable breakfast room. Caroline and Jon were helpful and accommodating. Short walk to the centre of Ilfracombe. It was ideal for our visit. Hope...

Our room was very generously proportioned with a similarly generous ensuite. The whole accommodation was spotlessly clean and kept that way throughout our stay. Caroline and Jon were exemplary hosts...

“Room 2 on the ground floor is in between the reception and dining room so perhaps less private than other rooms.”
