Thank you so much for taking the time in your busy programme to think of us and for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet the three of you.

Located at the bottom of a valley surrounded by trees, this was our perfect get away from it all destination. Close enough to the sea and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of everyday Devon. Yes the wifi is poor and phone reception is not good but that's what makes it perfect.

Thank you for your very generous review. Sadly we doubt that mobile phone reception in North Devon will ever improve much but we are delighted to report that we are now able to provide a good level of wifi throughout the building. More

Have returned to Score Valley after several years to find it is still as beautiful and peaceful as before. Jenny and Roger have made a number of improvements including flat screen TV's etc. but the wifi is still mainly only available on the ground floor but is free of charge. Jenny's breakfast's are still excellent and very substantial.

All the rooms we saw were of a good size and tastefully decorated in keeping with the house. Both Roger and Jenny were extremely accomodating and the breakfast certainly... More
