My Girlfriend spent three nights here as a base for exploring the north coast of Devon. The hotel was easy enough to find, down a narrow drive and ends at a very secluded and quiet area. The proprietors were very friendly and welcoming. Also very useful when it came to parking and local beaches, directions etc. The room was spacious... More

Oh dear it was always going to happen one day, a city boy startled by that natural phenomenon known as the dawn chorus. I do know from experience that it also happens in towns and cities the main difference here is that it is not masked by traffic noise. I can only apologise but would respectfully point out that closer... More

When you first turn off the very well signposted road, you wonder where your going to end up, but don't let that fool you, a pot of gold awaits you at the end of the rainbow. From start to finish everything was good, inc Breakfast...lol

Excellent short break. Quiet location above the town in a beautiful wooded valley. Large airy room. Lovely selection on tea tray. The most wonderfully comfortable Super king size bed. Breakfast choices superb and cooked freshly. Would thoroughly recommend this to any wanting an away from it all escape.

A warm welcome from Roger the owner. A clean and large room with en suite. A very good hot shower in the bathroom, no bath. Breakfast was included which was the usual cereal, toast and full English but no other meals served throughout the day and so we had to go out for dinner which was a bit disappointing to... More

Roger was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome everyday. Breakfast was wonderful in the morning and we made the most of it. Really was a fantastic stay and... More

Stayed there for two night. I was on a scuba diving trip. Very accommodating of our late arrival due to half term traffic and 250 mile journey and early start due to the tides. The beds are comfortable, shower hot and the breakfast was great. Jenny and Roger are very welcoming.

We stayed here as a group on a diving trip out of Ilfracombe. The hotel is in a beautiful setting and is very nice and comfortable. Very friendly and welcoming. We were a large group and they were very accommodating including putting up with our annoying request for different breakfast times on the last day. The only thing they could... More
