Cheap & clean B& B. Situated 10 minutes from the town. Very nice breakfast served in a somewhat dated room. Nice walk through a park. Half way down you can find a pub with a thatched roof. They serve dinner in or out on a big terrace. The only nice things to do or see around are the costal paths.

Just had a long weekend in Ilfracombe and stayed at Varley House. The hotel is spotless, we had a room with a fabulous view and the bed was very comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming. The highlight however was the breakfasts, they are to are to die for and really set us up for the day. What a selection of lovely food. If the sea air doesn't tire you out then the walk up hill from town certainly will. Highly recommended and definitely would stay there again. Thank you for looking after us so well.

We stayed just one night, however, the hosts were brilliant, friendly and very accommodating. We had two bicycles with us, and Rod made sure they were securely stored for the night. We had a nice room with a panoramic view of the sea, comfy bed and pillows. Breakfast was superb, cooked fresh and plenty of variety. Would definitely recommend Varley House.
