Epchris House is a stunning place full of character set in spacious grounds and with wonderful hosts.We were upgraded to the premier room which was spacious with a fabulous en suite, mega comfy bed and a leather settee. The breakfast as previously mentioned on other reviews is indeed legendary, full english, plenty of it and the bacon is to die for!! We have stayed in many hotels and guest houses over the years and this one is top of the tree,
Thank you Nicky and family for a great stay

Room Tip: Epchris set in a quiet part of town so any room you get will be a brilliant one

We booked the Epchris for us & all our close family & friends who were going down to Ilfracombe from Manchester for our wedding and I don't think I could have picked a better place. Nicky & her family were so helpful, especially when my hairdresser cancelled 2 wks before the big day, she had me sorted out in a matter of hours. Nothing was too big an ask & every little detail was thought about to make me feel special on my big day. Plus when the weather wasn't too good, the beautiful inside helped make my photo's just as amazing. We will definately be back for many an anniversary xx

Room Tip: The new garden room is a must for any bride-to-be, loads of room for your dress & all your bride...

I stayed here for a friends wedding. The rooms were all clean and the owners were more than helpful and could not do enough for us, even handing out tissues on the way to the wedding. The breakfast was also fantastic! If i ever go back to Ilfracombe, I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We booked at Epchris House for a wedding with our family, so we had all but one of the rooms. All were good, clean and comfortable,

Breakfast was excellent and the owners were friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful week-end at Epchris house! The hosts are very friendly and welcoming; they go out of their way to help, providing information and suggestions for walks in the area. The room we had was spacious and comfortable, and since we travelled with our dog, we were accommodated in a larger room. Very helpful! The breakfast is delicious, with a variety of options, including vegetarian (full english, smoked salmon, cereals etc). There is wifi, and a small lounge/bar area guests can use as well, complete with maps and guidebooks. For those who want to head into Ilfracombe, it's only a short walk into town and to restaurants. It's a great place to stay when exploring north Devon.

Booked for my boyfriends birthday - we stayed in the new Garden Room, which is set aside from the house itself. It was beautifully done, contemporary but cosy in terms of decor. Very comfortable, with it's own balcony overlooking the huge garden and swimming pool. Minibar too. Bathroom was lovely with large shower and seperate bath. Breakfast was lovely - proper English but not too greasy - bacon was particularly nice! Also becuase we were in our own building really (although just a few steps from the house) we were pretty much undisturbed. Like a home away from home! Nicky was lovely, very accomodating and her son (I think) very quick at serving and taking orders for breakfast. Lovely - would definately recommend. Location was great - about 15-20 minutes walk to centre of town.

Room Tip: Garden room was really lovely - well worth splashing out for a romantic getaway.
