Went for a weeks holiday with our 11 month old Springer and had a fantastic time. The hotel was just what we needed - 2 rooms both en-suite and a fantastic breakfast to start the day. On arrival we were shown round by Graham and he offered to set up a breakfast table in the Bar area so our young... More

Stayed here with a couple of friends as part of the Devon Coast to Coast bike ride. The hosts were great, the food is terrific and plentiful, and nothing is too much trouble. Secure bike lock up and a good location will have me coming back next year.

Have just returned from a great weekend in Ilfracombe and relaxing stay at The Sherborne Lodge. We are a family of five and it's not always easy to get the right accommodation but we were well served with Graham and Alison. We shared family rooms, two bedrooms with ensuite, we had a wonderful breakfast every morning and were made to... More

We were delighted with our short stay at this B&B this week. Alison and Graham are gracious hosts who think of everything, including maps of the town showing the gradients on the various walks into town, a great advantage in a hilly place like Ilfracombe, but are always looking to improve their already excellent service. When the vegetarian sausages weren't... More

Had a wonderful 3 nights at the Sherborne Lodge. Ideally situated within a short walking distance from the heart of Ilfracombe, enabling you to leave the car parked safely in the car park when wining and dining in Ilfracombes restaurants or heading to the beach for the day. If your expecting the Ritz then this isn't the place for you... More

We stayed at Sherborne Lodge one day either side of the Easter weekend. Could not have been made more welcome! Both Graham and Alison were great hosts and helpful in every way. It's a great location, close to the town centre but also easy access to the N. Devon Coastal path which is a fantastic place for walking your dog(s).... More

We stayed here when attending a wedding at tunnels beaches - literally 2 mins away. Graham could not have been more helpful. Hearty breakfast, friendly staff. Highly recommended. We are considering going back next year with a group.

We stayed here two nights each side of a two week holiday on Lundy. The owners were very helpful letting us leave our car in their car park for the two weeks. Good rooms very comfortable. Breakfasts very good. We only stayed one night each time but would happily stay here for a week's holiday. It is dog friendly and... More

A very friendly and helpful business run by Alison and Graham. We were staying there due to walking the Coastal path with my Jack Russell and the owners were very accommodating with arrival and departure arrangements. Some places say they are pet friendly but this place lives up to the statement. Plenty of advice given on local restaurants for us... More
