A good quality TV and a DVD player with a large choice of films downstairs in the hallway. We had a fridge and a mini-bar which was really useful and downstairs in the lounge, there was another bar.... More

This review somewhat belated 2012/2013 . Loved this quaint friendly B&B in Ilfracombe. Stayed here 4 nights after the long haul from Adelaide arriving Boxing Day to attend Wedding In Woolacoombe.

we found the welcome of julienne and pete warming and natural. the room was superb and cleanliness was excellent. the bed was big enough for four. the variation of breakfast on offer was of local produce and cooked fresh. a perfect base for any hoilday maker visiting north devon . very highly recommended. many thanks jo & dougie

We were two couples on a short break. Spacious rooms (1 & 5), comfortable beds and helpful, friendly hostess. Julienne's fruit compote and home made marmalade were delicious and, although we never saw Peter, I think he was responsible for the tasty cooked breakfasts.

Stayed here for one night, during a weekend getaway. The room was lovely and spacious, nothing was too much trouble for Julienne. The breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day! Great value for exploring North Devon from.

Stayed for 2 nights and wish it had have been longer. Spotlessly clean good sized room; stayed in room 5. Nothing was too much trouble to Julienne, a definite home from home. Breakfasts second to none. Would most definitely stay here again. Thank you!

We had a lovely two night stay. The room was nice, clean and bright, had everything we needed and it was good to have a sofa in the room so we could relax. Julienne was very friendly and welcoming and Peter cooks a good breakfast!!:-) Highly recommend this lovely guest house.
