This privately owned family hotel is nestled deep in little valley just off the main road to Illfracombe. It is quaint and a little old fashioned but that is its charm. The 8 or so rooms have tea making facilities and complimentary wash gels. The bedrooms are a little dated but very clean. The main house has a breakfast room... More

We found the hotel easily as it is nestling in a quiet valley. Our hosts were very nice and nothing was too much trouble. The room was comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was lovely and no problem to pre-order from a list of requirements. It's about 25 mins to walk down into Ilfracombe but it's also a good idea to catch... More

What a find this was - a haven of tranquility tucked away in a wooded valley and yet less than a mile from the bustling seaside resort of Ilfracombe. The approach is down a narrow winding lane but this eventually opens out into a large car park. The hotel itself has a charming period feel with a spacious lounge to... More

I Just loved Score Valley Country House, obviously the Proprietors have thought of everything that quest would require, a warm welcome, the bedroom and ensuite shower had everything one would need, complimentary drinks tea/coffee towels soap and hair gel, a lovely lounge with bar, and a choice of breakfast, I went for the full English which really set me up...

I'm sorry to say we would not stay here again. The ensuite was so dark and tiny and in desperate need of updating and nowhere to put our toiletries. The bed was very hard and lumpy so didn't sleep very well. And the pillows had a funny smell. The public areas were cold with a damp smell. We had to... More

Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry that I am at somewhat of a loss as to how to best to respond. The room has been freshly decorated and carpeted this year. Any conversion of a Georgian room to incorporate an en suite will always be a compromise and can never equate to that of purpose built premises.... More

Didn't feel welcomed.......no offer to help us (aged 64 & 87) with our luggage to and from the second floor room. Single beds were only 2'6" and very small ensuite's door didn't close properly. 'Generous hospitality tray' was only basic compared to others I've had. I feel this room should be charged at a lower rate. I wouldn't stay here... More

Thank you for your feedback and we are extremely sorry you were disappointed. As you are aware this booking, made through a third party site, was most unfortunate on almost every level. On noting your requests we did contact you immediately by email and subsequently spoke on the phone to point out that we were unable to fully honour the... More

Couldn't have picked a nicer place. It ticks all the boxes we'd certainly return here, and I'd highly recommend it. The food was delicious the staff were so friendly nothing was too much. The location was spit on too.

Score Valley was a perfect change from the heat and hurried pace of Orlando, Florida. I enjoyed the history of the hotel and the surrounding countryside but most of all the care taken by Roger and Jenny to see that all of my needs were met in such a lovely manner. This was a great vacation and I cannot wait... More

Thank you for your kind feedback. It is always a pleasure to help to enable overseas visitors to experience the beauty of North Devon especially when the weather is behaving itself. I hope you enjoyed our hot, dry spell even though as a Florida native you probably still appreciated a cardigan!! More

My sister and I stayed here for two nights whilst visiting relatives. Access off the main road is a little tricky but once down in the valley there is ample parking in front of the house which is a rare find in Ilfracombe. Our room was homely, clean and comfortable, much more pleasant than the sterile, overheated rooms you find... More
