Went for a long weekend with three friends to do some surfing at Woolacombe beach which is about a 10 minute drive from Ilfracombe. So pleased that my friend organised us to stay at the Acorn Lodge. It was perfectly adequate for what we were after - great location in the Ilfracombe town, near the waterfront, hilarious and very hospitable... More

Made to feel most welcome, pot of coffee on arrival served on front terrace (fortunately weather not to bad). Brilliant breakfast, comfortable bed and convivial hosts. Excellent b&b would not hesitate to recommend to others
