Stayed for a week at the end of August . Looked at all the reviews before I booked and can honestly say they are accurate. Spotlessly clean rooms etc. and the breakfast was amazing. Just ask and Mr Mrs Holdsworth will do their best to oblige, nothing too much trouble. All rooms themed to movie idols of the golden age... More

We stayed for one night and wish it could have been for longer. A warm and friendly greeting was just the beginning. The room was lovely, clean and nicely decorated. It was light and airy. In the morning the breakfast was amazing and even though we had checked out Marianna let us leave the car in the car park while... More

I have been going to Coastal Fringes for many years now and I have just returned from my annual visit and as always it was a joy. Spotlessly clean and most welcoming the food was first class and because it is not a huge establishment I enjoyed the personal treatment and service i had come to expect. The room are... More

This B & B has a good location with parking just a short distance from the centre of Illfracombe. There are only 3 rooms - we stayed in the Joan Fontaine suite which contains memorabilia related to the actress. The room was very spacious and clean. The hosts, Marianna and David, were warm and welcoming. Suggestions for walks in the... More

Marianna and David were the perfect hosts throughout our stay from welcome on arrival to the goodbye at the end. We stayed in the "Joan Fontain" room which was spacious, comfy and quiet and had everything you could wish for, books, magazines, DVD's, puzzles and games. The homemade cookies added to this lovely stay. Food was excellent and plenty of... More

Stayed at Coastal Fringes for 3 nights in the Joan Fontaine Suite. Beautiful room, very comfortable. Those little extras were very thoughtful from face wipes to home made biscuits, DVDs, books, magazines. Nothing was too much trouble. Even had local walks available and printed out for you. Breakfast fit for a king. Will definately go back. Would most certainly recommend.
