The hotel is very nice, full of character. We got a warm welcome from Roger, and that continued throughout our stay. The hotel is in a lovely spot, down the end of a track, and feels completely un-overlooked and within the countryside, though it's very close to Ilfracombe Breakfast was cooked fresh, and was tasty. Would definitely stay again. The... More

We stayed here for one night on Easter Sunday evening following a weekend in Ilfracombe to attend a wedding. The weather surprised everyone by being beautiful over the Easter and the sunshine showed off this country house B and B to its best, gloriously bathed in sunshine with spring flowers all around. Its dog friendly which is great if you... More

Thank you very much for your frank and honest feedback. We are very pleased you enjoyed a comfortable stay. I would just like to take this opportunity to clarify a couple of points. We are aware that not everybody likes to pre-order breakfast but believe that as we are only a husband and wife team this enables us to provide... More

As part of my lifestyle I spend at least half of my time staying in hotels and bed and breakfasts and I can say that Score Valley is, without exaggeration, one of the finest country houses, I have stayed at. A truly beautiful riverside location, perfectly placed for Ilfracombe and Devon in general, and a simply exquisite property, with a... More

Stayed in the Score Valley Hotel for one night to catch up with friends. The hotel was very comfortable and the service was really good. Set in lovely scenery and in a very quiet area, also within walking distance of Ilfracombe itself. Will definitely return for another stay.

This lovely country house is run by husband and wife team. It is comfortable and spacious. Everything you could wish for in a getaway from it all holiday. The gardens are secluded and you are oblivious to the outside world. The bedroom has a small fridge which you can fill with your own things. But there are a couple of... More

We have been to score valley twice because the owners made us feel very welcome, nothing is too much trouble and they are very genuine. We have been in other hotels and was always glad to go home but felt so relaxed at Score Valley. And where the hotel is you have trees and nature all around you. We will... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights in the summer and had a fantastic stay, the location is peaceful and the setting is stunning. We had a room on the top floor which was spacious, the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. The only complaint about the room would be the shower - we... More

This was our first stay at Score Valley, but would certainly return when in the area again. Roger and Jenny made us feel very welcome, and were very accommodating as to the needs of our dogs food being kept chilled, as this is often a problem in some hotels. Our room was quiet spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast menu... More

Thank you very much for your kind review. We believe Score Valley lends itself perfectly to dog owners with plenty of pleasant walks in the immediate area so we are pleased to take small to medium dogs. Having said that we are very much aware that not everybody appreciates dogs in a room so we only take a dog in... More
