What a lovely bed and breakfast in a superb location in Ilfracombe, 5 minutes walk to the harbour and also fore street where there's lots of lovely restaurants.

If you are a light sleeper the seagulls might disturb your sleep. There were no complaints about the B&B though. The landlady was friendly, the room was clean and the breakfast was more than adequate.

Lovely staff who couldn't do enough to help you. The room was very comfortable, fabulous breakfast, great location and not far at all from the harbour. I can't recommend this place enough! The owners had great local knowledge and went out of their way to help make our stay great.

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
