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.

Thank you for your generous review. Could I just clarify that all but two of our Double Rooms have Super king (6') beds, our Rooms 2 and 6 have King size (5') beds. More

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

We had a wonderful stay during May half term in this beautiful country house. Our rooms (1 x double and 1 x single) were excellent, clean and very comfy. 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

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

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.
