A very friendly establishment run by a husband & wife, Rod & Helen, not more than 1 10 minute walk from the harbour. The bedroom was comfortable, the breakfast was excellent value for money and the service was of a very high standard. I shall definitely return for another visit.

Always welcomed, easy of road parking, excellent breakfasts. The rooms are well furnished and the upgraded bathrooms with power showers are excellent. WiFi is available and tea and coffee facilities provided. A large comfortable lounge allows one to relax and have a quiet read or chat. There are nice walks into Ilfracombe and plenty of footpaths to walk our dog.... More

Have now stayed at Varley House twice and would highly recommend it. Clean, comfortable rooms, welcoming tea and coffee on arrival. Easy walk into Ilfracombe and close to lovely walks including the coastal path. Dog made very welcome. Beds very comfortable, very quiet area and lovely breakfast.

This was a last minute booking for NYE. Great find, it was perfect for our stay. Our room had a fantastic view, very clean and comfortable. We stayed with our 2 year old son who was made most welcome. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Home from home with a delicious breakfast. Thanks.

After severe storm warnings issued for the south we rang first to ask about available safe parking (we were in a rental car).
