The 2 of us and my collie spaniel dog stayed at epchris house for 3 nights and we had the most incredible time. We stayed in the premier room which offered more space which was useful. Nikki was truly exceptional and I have never been made to feel so welcome anywhere else. Ilfracombe is a beautiful town and recommend this... More

From the minute I arrived I was welcomed and nothing was too much trouble, the owners were friendly, helpful and made me feel at home. The room was beautiful, clean and spacious. The gardens were stunning and enormous and the food and service excellent. I could not find one fault the the entire stay

We stayed at Epchris with our family in July 2014 for our wedding at Tunnels Beaches. The house is lovely with beautiful grounds and a swimming pool! We had the Garden Room which is perfect for the bride & groom and is plenty big enough for bride and bridal party to get ready together in the morning. We spent a... More

From the moment we arrived we were given a warm reception from the very smiley owner (Mrs Edwards) The property is away from the town centre therefore quiet and peaceful. A stroll to the harbour only takes 15 minutes and once down the hill a pleasant walk. During our stay Mrs Edwards could not have done anymore to make our... More

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
