My husband and I stayed here in April this year. We went to a wedding of a friend at the Tunnel Beaches. First of all, Ilfracomb is a really nice small town, near the sea. And Tunnel Beaches is truly a beautiful venue for a wedding. We were advised to stay at Epchris House by Tripadvisor and some other guests... More

This is a gorgeous house in a lovely location and is beautifully maintained and presented. Stayed one night in double room which had stunning views but it was a bit small for two of us. The loo was crammed in the corner of ensuite, but the bath was a treat. Lots of hot water and room to stretch out (I'm... More

Nicky E, Owner at Epchris House, responded to this review

Many thanks for your review. I would like to respond to a few points you have made. Mattress comfort is so individual, we made a decision to go for a good quality medium/firm range, which we have to appreciate will not suit all, but has generally been well received. We do however provide upon request, mattress toppers. Pillows are the... More

We came down from Leeds for a wedding and was overwhelmed by the amount of guest houses to choose from. It was purely pot luck we ended up here but boy what good luck that was! The staff are fantastic and definitely go above and beyond what you would expect from a guest house with excellent local knowledge, fast and... More

We have just returned from a short break in Ilfracombe and have to say after checking Epchris House on Tripadvisor before we booked we were not disappointed with our stay. We were warmly greeted on arrival and shown to room 3 on the first floor over looking the garden. The room was very spacious. It had a lovely ensuite shower... More

The Epchris House BnB is anything but ordinary. On our arrival we were met by the owner and instantly feel in love with the charming BnB. We were given details of the local area and taxi cards plus a walking map so we could easily frequent ourselves with the beautiful town of Ilfracombe. We had chosen to stay in the... More

I stayed here with a group of friends and can't fault the place. The room (room 1) was very large, with a comfy bed and a lovely big bay window. The bathroom was clean and well equipped and everything felt clean and fresh. The honesty bar was ideal for our group - with a great selection and a great way... More
