Just returned from 4 nights at the Norbury house. This was our first holiday with our little girl and we were very impressed with the room we stayed in (room 5). Adam and Paula made us feel very welcome from the time we arrived to the time we left. The breakfast was lovely too with a good selection to choose... 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

A very warm welcome, a cup of tea and a feeling of 'this is where the holiday starts'. The owners have a manner which is welcoming, casual and very efficient at all times. The breakfasts are fabulous, cooked fresh to order with a culinary flair which is worthy of any chef. The bedroom was clean and roomy, well equipped with... More

Stayed in room 1 for 3 nights.Bathroom is fairly small but main bedroom is a good size.There is an additional "dressing room" available which we found most useful. The breakfast is a very high standard (try the warm croissant with melted cheese and ham - awesome) with lots of choice. House is furnished to a high standard with a most... More

We travelled to a wedding in Ilfracombe and took pot luck when we booked a hotel for two nights. Norbury House Hotel proved to be a diamond, from the first moment we set foot into the beautifully decorated lounge area, we were greeted warmly, tea and biscuits were produced and both Paula and Adam took the time to chat to...

Paula and Adam are the perfect hosts, the couldn't have made us feel any more welcome and they were just fabulous with our baby boy. Nothing was too much trouble and had lots of advice and knowledge of the area. Delicious breakfast after the best night sleep ever. Our bed was just devine! The communal areas were comfortable, beautiful and... More

We're not usually the types to stay in small bed and breakfasts or guest houses, preferring our own cottages when in the UK, but after not finding what we wanted for this weekend I turned to searching this category of accommodation and came across Norbury House. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Adam who spent time explaining... More

Our hosts, Paula and Adam, were very polite and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Our room (number 5) was clean, spacious and well decorated with an exceptional view. The honesty bar was an innovative idea, typical of our hosts laid back approach. Breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked to order. Should we return to Ilfracombe again we will definitely... More
