As two walkers of the SW Coastal Path, we needed an accessible and friendly B&B - that's what we got! Sharon was friendly and efficient. Her B&B is well placed for the SWCP - the food was just right. Phill

Just back from a 4 night stay in Ilfracombe, first ever visit to the North Devon area, and I must say we loved every minute of it. As a family of 4 we found lots to do and explore, but to top the trip off our stay in the collingdale. In a super spot, a few minutes walk down to... More

The guest house is run by a lovely couple for whom nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is spotless and the breakfasts are beautifully prepared and more importantly taste great. I would recommend the smoked haddock with poached egg as it was stunning. It was a delight to wake up and draw the curtains each morning and look out... More

Our room had fantastic harbour views, which was only a few minutes walk away, was spotless and comfortable and breakfast choice and quality was exceptional. Would highly recommend The Collingdale as your base whilst in the area, with lots of restaurants, bars... More
