From the time of arriving to time we departed we felt welcome and relaxed. The rooms had all you need for a comfortable stay and the service was first class. We stayed for a wedding at the tunnels and took up all the rooms for a couple of nights. Everyone commented on how clean and well run the place was.... More

We had a fantastic experience at Epchris House. We live in London but had decided to get married at Tunnels beaches and were looking for somewhere nice and relaxed to stay during our wedding period. We definitely found a perfect home from home in this guesthouse, it is homely, warm and relaxed and the running of it is very professional... More

This excellent B&B is a lovely old house in a neighbourhood of stately Victorian brick homes. Very friendly owners! Our room was bright, clean and lovely, with an immaculate bathroom. Epchris House boasts a fabulous garden with a patio, a swimming pool, and is a short walk to downtown Ilfracombe. Delicious, generous breakfasts start the day off right. A winner... More

We occupied all 9 rooms for our daughter's wedding at Tunnels Beaches in June. The setting with lovely gardens and outside seating were perfect as we had a pre-wedding buffet for 50 organised by Nicky and family along with a local Deli - all excellent and stress free due to the care and attention provided. All rooms are spacious, well... More

We have just returned from staying here for 4 nights for a Family Wedding at nearby Tunnels Beaches, and couldn't have been more comfortable or well looked after. Nicky and family are very attentive and helpful. The rooms are all superb (we occupied all 9 rooms for one night) and are beautifully decorated and clean. There is a stunningly beautiful... More

Just got back from a two night stay in Epchris House. From enquiry to arrival and beyond this was one if the best BBC experiences we gave had. Nicky was really helpful, the room was superb and the honesty bar was not only reasonably priced but exceptionally well stocked. Can't fault the whole stay, thanks Nicky and Rob, highly recommended!

Myself and my husband stayed at Epchris house on Saturday 10th May. What a beautiful house, in a great setting not far from the town centre. We stayed in a loft room, which was nicely decorated and overlooked the garden. The breakfast was lovely, another good feature was the honesty bar, you take your required drink, put your name in...
