I visited Woolacombe with my daughter and we stopped in this beautiful B&B. The room & en-suite was spotless. It was very well furnished with a modern nicely fitted en-suite. Lovely views of the beach and surrounding countryside.Breakfast was served in the conservatory and was really good. The proprietors were very welcoming & friendly.

Lovely room, with amazing sea views on your own balcony. Very warm owners that helped make our stay that little more personal. Fantastic breakfast and the full English was excellent with limitless coffee. You feel totally at home. What more could you ask for?? Would highly recommend if stopping in woolacombe.

Breakfast was lovely, everything you would expect from Croissants to fruit, cereal and cooked breakfast or any combination of cooked items you care for and tea and coffee... More

We just came back to Canada from our Honeymoon in England and The Downland House was by far our favorite accommodation of the trip! Keith and Cilla are extraordinary hosts who are as charming as they are hospitable. Our room was so clean and made us feel right at home, not to mention the spectacular views of the ocean we...

Downland House is a very comfortable, family run Guest House with just 3 rooms. The rooms all have sunny balconies overlooking the valley away to the beach and sea view. The breakfast is everything you could wish for and more and Cilla and Keith were the perfect friendly hosts.
