We would recommend The Woodlands for anyone wanting to stay in Ilfracombe, everything was clean and tidy, with a great breakfast and friendly hosts. Also everything is within easy walking distance of the town :) Look no further...

Ilfracombe is one of those seaside resorts that may have seen better days, but it retains a certain quirky charm. We stayed at the Woodlands over the Easter weekend, and it was an enormously enjoyable stay. The owners are hugely welcoming and charming, and are getting the small hotel experience just exactly right. The bed was huge and comfy, and... More

Really enjoyed our recent stay here. Our room was bright and clean, modern but home-y with a nice view over the garden. Cooked breakfast was very good, with several options available, and served in a large, comfortable breakfast room. Caroline and Jon were helpful and accommodating. Short walk to the centre of Ilfracombe. It was ideal for our visit. Hope... More

My wife and I recently visited Ilfracombe to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary. I was fortunate to happen upon the Woodlands and booked Super King Deluxe accommodation for the week. Our room was very generously proportioned with a similarly generous ensuite. The whole accommodation was spotlessly clean and kept that way throughout our stay. Caroline and Jon were exemplary hosts... More
