I had intended to stay at the renowned Woolacombe bay hotel, but having seen that I would have to remove several limbs in order to do so I chose to look elsewhere.

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.

This is a beautiful B & B. We stayed 3 nights in Room 1. Which is tastefully decorated and has a sumptuous king size bed. The views from the room are spectacular. 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
