As soon as you arrive at this B&B you feel at home. A huge pot of tea and homemade biscuits are waiting in the cosy sitting room overlooking the woodland valley leading to Lee Bay. The rooms are light and airy and prettily furnished with a lovely mix of antique and contemporary furnishings and are en suite, but you can also use the main bathroom with its 6ft long roll top bath. This is the most relaxing bath I've had! Lots of hot water, plenty of towels, candles, and a choice of magazines, fantastic! Topped off with one of Julia's delicious evening meals which more than catered for my vegetarian needs. Grey Cottage is well placed for exploring the village of Lee Bay and the coastal paths and accessible by public transport (I took the National Express to Ilfracombe and the local bus dropped me at the top of the drive). Julia is a generous and welcoming host and her professional catering experience shows in the breakfast (lots of choice) and dinner and yummy snacks in between. The only trouble is making room for a cream tea in the local pub!
