We stayed one night in this lovely hotel. It was not easy to locate, but is in a quiet street overlooking a beautiful garden which we were able to explore. We had a large comfortable room with everything we needed. The breakfast was very good and the owners were so accomodating. They even let us use their computer to book... More

This hotel is situated in a very nice location at the top of the hill, it is very quiet. The garden is beautiful and the staff is lovely. We had a very good English breakfast which was freshly cooked. I would recommend this hotel!

The breakfast was really well laid out and was lovely and filling. Our room (room 10) was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed and linen were really comfortable to a point... More

We returned from a 6 night stay at the Woodlands last weekend and had a brilliant holiday. The guesthouse is in the perfect location as it is an easy walk into the town but is far enough out to be nice and quiet at night. We had room 11 which was on the first floor and was spacious, light and... More

The Woodlands is situated in a peaceful location, yet only a fifteen minute stroll away from Ilfracombe Harbour and shops, (up-hill on the way back to the B&B). This is a very clean and comfortable B&B and the hosts, Chris and Christine, were very friendly and helpful in giving advice about places to visit, both locally and a little bit... More

The Woodlands is a grand old house in the Torrs Park area overlooking the lovely town of Ilfracombe and very easy to access the coastal path walks from. Chris and Christine are friendly, helpful hosts and the full English breakfast well cooked and made using locally produced, quality products. Our room (11) was large and comfortably furnished with crisp white... More
