An overview of Rocky Cove, friendly, clean, well situated for all of Ilfracombe amenities and a place we would recommend. Arrived mid afternoon at Rocky Cove to be greeted by the most friendliest proprietors we have stayed with for a long time. John and Polly. After the niceties, John helped us to our room on the top floor looking over... More

We found this place at the last minute on a trip to Devon and it turned out to be a great find. The location is ideal being close to the harbour and the town, our room was spacious and clean, the cooked breakfast (with fruit and cereal) absolutely delicious, and most of all the hosts John and Polly were super...

Stayed here over a weekend with the Mrs and it didn't disappoint. People who own it are lovely and very welcoming. It was very clean, good location, breakfast was lovely and a varied choice. Couldn't ask for more really.

Me and the better half stayed for a couple nights whilst visiting friends. The owners are lovely people who were very friendly and the room was done to an amazing standard, so much so we were taking pictures to take back to our house to redecorate. Highly recommended!!!

The owners are so very accommodating. The top family room (4) was extremely spacious with a huge bathroom. Walking shower with a lot of pressure. Very very nice breakfast buffet and cooked breakfast. The location is ideal with one of the best seafood and fish restaurant just at the bottom (nespresso). We will come back here when we go back... More

Stayed on Good Friday having booked at short notice. Lovely couple running the place and the room was spotless, comfy bed and relatively well priced. Lots of places to eat in Ilfracombe but the most popular you'll need to book. If the modern bedroom had been marginally larger and the ensuite had been equipped with a towel rail and loo... More

Fantastic b&b. John and Polly were very accommodating and welcoming, genuine lovely couple. Made me feel at home which was greatly appreciated as i was staying by myself (for a work trip) Rooms are clean, spacious and light. Very relaxing & nice breakfasts too! Thankyou for a great stay :)

We stayed at Rocky Cove for 3 nights recently. The owners John and Polly could not have been more accomodating, they gave us invaluable tips on the local area which enabled us to visit places we would otherwise not have known about! As for the room, everything was lovely and also spotlessly clean. The daily cooked breakfast was delicious and... More

My husband and I visited North Devon for a wedding last weekend and were very impressed with the B&B - Rocky Cove. This was our second trip to this B& B after it was recommended to us previously by a friend who had stayed. We were not disappointed! The friendly owners really made our weekend with a lovely breakfast and... More
