I had to phone to ask a few questions before making a booking for a couple of nights in rainy Devon and Roger was friendly and welcoming. We paid £83 for Room 4 made up as a twin room. It has an en suite with a shower and heated towel rail (very useful), and the room had a TV, tea... More

Wonderful place! I was made at home from the moment I stepped into the Country House, Rodger and Jenny very friendly and amusing. It was great break from the city and set in a lovely green location. Rodger saved the trip by pointing me in the direction of a less crowded beach for a surf, thanks mate! The breakfasts were... More

This hotel is set in a very peaceful location ideal for discovering the wonderful north Devon coast. Its a nice easy walk into Ilfracombe but found the short journey back by taxi expensive. The breakfasts were varied and good ,the bedroom with kingsize bed was comfortable and clean and Jenny and Roger very obliging

Very comfortable. Breakfast menu has a varied choice and plenty of it. Roger was very knowledgable about local area and very... More

Lovely place to stay...quite and relaxing location. The building is 300+ years old and we stayed in Room 8, which was a large room with en-suite bathrooom with roll-top bath. There is a small bar to use in the evenings which was nice. The breakfast was lovely and the hosts were very pleasant without being 'in your face' all the... More

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
