This is a very comfortable place to stay. Parking is easy and it's not too far to walk into town to eat. Dave and Sandie are very friendly and were happy to recommend places to go. The breakfasts were delicious. The room was great; it was nice to have a sofa to sit on and watch TV. We would stay... More

Great hosts and a nice breakfast. Rooms clean and comfortable with the added bonus of off street parking and decent free wifi. Tea and Coffee facilities free in room. Recommended for business or pleasure with or without the kids.. would definitely consider staying again on our next visit to "sunny" Devon.

Lovely couple, lovely B&B I'll definitely book here again. I've known Dave and Sandie for years and they always aim to please. Off road parking is a bonus. I had a large airy room that was well appointed. Just a cracking place to stay.

David and Sandie were the perfect hosts and their home was a wonderful place to stay during a holiday to explore North Devon. The room was a great size, offering very comfy beds, blackout curtains, fresh water/tea/coffee facilities with biscuits and a great power shower. Breakfasts (with both hot and cold options) were made to order and were perfectly turned... More

We stayed here with friends in May 2014 and have nothing but praise for this lovely guest house. The rooms are extremely clean and the breakfast nice and well presented. A short stroll to the shops / pubs / restaurants. Would recommend this guest house for a stay in Ilfracombe.

We stayed fir two nights at this charming guest house. The room we booked had everything you could want including a king-size bed that was very comfortable. The nice extra touches included shampoos in the bathroom and face flannels adding to the overall impression. Breakfast was a delight, well cooked by Dave and served by Sandie, clearly nothing was too... More
