We had a lovely few days at Ossaborough House. Trevor snd Rosie are wonderful hosts as is Rosie's breakfast snd Trevor's impeccable service. Our family were staying at Golden Sands and we could even see their tent through the garden fence from our patio so it could not have been more convenient for us. The accommodation is very clean and... More

We found Ossaborough House quite by chance after a very long day. We hadn't booked but we were made more than welcome. Our room was well appointed with the luxury of a large sofa to watch television without having to lounge around on the bed. It was exceedingly clean and I loved the age of the house and its setting.... More

We have been to Ossaborough House quite a few times over the last 3 or 4 years and we absolutely love it. It is situated about a mile from the beach but the location is very peaceful. Rooms are available in the main building but we always stay in one of the garden rooms, these have the benefit of their... More

Went to Ossaborough House for my girlfriend's birthday. We stayed 2 nights & will definitely stay there again the next time we visit Woolacombe. Our room was very cosy, clean & well maintained. We were a stones throw away from tennis courts, an outdoor & indoor pool, which we took advantage of, and a nice little pub next door! The... More

My wife and I were looking to have a break during which we intended to do stages of the South West Coastal Path walk. The weather was against us, unfortunately, but Ossaborough House and its owners more than made up for the disappointment. Both Trevor and Rosie could not do enough to make our stay more enjoyable, we felt very... More

Both myself and my partner really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We stayed in one of the garden rooms which were just like the pictures. Very clean convenient parking and the owners were lovely. Would certainly stay again.

Visited Ossaborough House for a family wedding. Hospitality second to none and the substantial breakfast held you in good stead for the day. Great location in a beautiful setting with wonderful views. Rosie and Trevor did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ossaborough House bed & breakfast is a 17th century home from home, family run guest house, with panoramic views overlooking an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The golden sands of Woolacombe Bay, a beautiful Blue Flag beach are but a mile away with the wonders of Exmoor just a further short drive. We have a golf course for the keen golfer and the Tarka trail for cyclists, both within four hundred yards. If you do not feel so active why not enjoy the scenery in full, when choosing one of our newer “garden rooms”. Relax on your own patio whilst sipping your wine, (glasses and corkscrew provided) or if you prefer, move inside to your comfy sofa with the view still to be appreciated. As an alternative, within the house we have rooms with an “older feel”. All are en-suite, have spacious seating areas with comfy sofas. The public areas abound with the “olde world” charms of beams, thick cob walls, gleaming copper and brass. Rosie’s succulent breakfasts are always freshly cooked to order with use of local produce wherever possible, including free range eggs direct from our neighbour’s farm. We serve breakfast in our cosy breakfast room, which boasts a log burner for the colder, winter months. Our guests have always been in raptures over the breakfasts at Ossaborough as can be seen by the ecstatic comments in the guest book. For romantic and other special occasions we can arrange for Flowers, Champagne and Chocolates to be provided as a surprise for your loved one, on your arrival. Over the fourteen very rewarding years that we have been at Ossaborough House we have made many friends with the people who have stayed with us, many of whom return year after year. We have added enjoyment to their holidays and we would love the chance to add enjoyment to yours. ... more   less
