After a wonderful relaxing and eventful week at this beautiful hotel I am very sad to be home! The hotel is clean and comfortable with excellent hosts and fabulous Breakfasts!

Just got back from a lovely couple of nights at Score Valley. Jenny and Roger are perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. Jenny's breakfasts are amazing and the menu is varied so if you don't want a full English there are plenty of other cooked options! Our room was beautifully decorated and spotless as was the... More

From the very warm welcome, to the wonderful room and the very good breakfast, everything about this hotel is to be recommended. Both Roger and Jenny are excellent hosts both available and unobtrusive. I would whole heartedly recommend this hotel. The only advice I would give to other travellers is to ask about the alternative exit from the driveway

We spent 3 nights here as part of our ruby wedding celebrations. We were greeted by a very welcoming Jenny who had left a personally written note under the fresh roses in our room.

Thank you so much for your very kind feedback. We are so pleased you had a enjoyable time and even happier that we were able to contribute to it.

We are very grateful for your very generous review. This area lends itself perfectly to walking dogs as, apart from our own land, there are pleasant walks down the lane to Bicclescombe Park or across the Cairn Nature Reserve opposite. We sincerely hope that if you are able to come we will be able to provide a much warmer welcome... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Score Valley Country House is a licensed hotel set in its own pleasant grounds in a peaceful secluded valley on the edge of Ilfracombe, making it also an ideal base for enjoying the vast sandy beaches of Woolacombe and the Golden Coast or exploring the wonders of Exmoor. A husband and wife team we take pride in the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of the hotel offering a good nights sleep, a hearty breakfast and are always happy to offer ideas and advice to ensure you get the most from your visit to this beautiful area. We have plenty of free parking. Due to the age of the property and the running streams we regret we do not consider it suitable for unsupervised young children. We are pleased to take small/medium dogs on request. ... more   less
