We stayed at The Norbury for a couple of nights for a wedding. The hosts were lovely, friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really really good and set us up for the whole day, which considering we were at a wedding was just what we needed. The room (3) has a super view and the bed was really comfortable.

Stayed 2 nights in top floor room. Room large with imaginative use of space to create bathroom. Excellent breakfast, freshly cooked to order. Victorian villa built into the rock retaining many original architectural features with quirky decor. Adam the co-owner is passionately enthusiastic about his home, the town and the area. Bovril, the very large friendly dog is equally enthusiastic!... More

We have been visiting Norbury House for about 8 years and continue to receive a very warm welcome from Adam and Paula. This is our home away from home. Bedrooms are comfortable and the whole house is stylishly decorated. There is a great selection of breakfasts prepared with locally sourced produce. If you need advice on places to visit or... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay (family of four) in Ilfracombe where we attended a family wedding. Right from the start we were warmly welcomed at Norbury House and made to feel comfortable. Adam & Paula's local knowledge was a godsend and we dined in a fab seafood bistro on the Friday evening. We also had the... More

We recently returned from a three night stay at the Norbury house. We went with our two year old daughter and found the whole experience excellent. Rooms nicely appointed with great attention to detail and Adam could not have been more welcoming and helpful with lots of recommendations of locals attractions. Bovril the dog was a huge hit with our... More

This is our second visit to the Norbury and it was even better the second time round. It was wonderful to see Paula and Adam again and of course Bovril the famous dog. You really are made to feel at home the minute you arrive, greeted by fresh tea, coffee and home homemade biscuits. Breakfast each morning is made amazing!!... More
