Stayed one night, room large and comfortable, Greg and Abi work very hard at making people feel comfortable and go out of their way to be helpful (Abi booked a table at the local restaurant for us). and the breakfast was excellent.
Good value would recommend it

We stayed here last Easter on a short break with our three children (all under 10 yrs) and we are back again this year. A beautiful Georgian building that has a relaxed family feel so it feels like a home from home (though a grand version of home!). The children were looking forward to the breakfasts (pancakes were their favourite) and we had a lovely big room with a newly fitted en suite bathroom and sea views. Abi and Greg work hard to keep everything looking great and the room was spotless. They were also really helpful when recommending places to visit or local restaurants. Would highly recommend for anyone, not just families. I'm sure we will be back again. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We have stayed here three times so far and would not hesitate to stay here again. Greg & Abi are delightful hosts who are really committed to you having a great stay. The rooms are spotless and the three rooms I have stayed in all had a sea view. The walk into the harbour only takes about 10 minutes as it is downhill, the walk back however all depends upon how fit you are. Breakfast is included and is delicious with locally sourced ingredients.

We look forward to staying here again.

Stopped here last summer for my birthday. It's run by a really nice couple who seem to genuinely care about the service they are providing. The house itself is beautiful snd the room was clean spacious with sea views. Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay in Laston House. Comfy and spacious rooms with a super view over Ilfracombe and the sea. The hosts Abi and Greg were friendly and welcoming and the guest lounge was a great place to relax at the end of the day before going up to our room. Guidance on walks and maps were available to help us plan our walks. The location was perfect as we were just a quick stroll from the harbour yet the house seemed peaceful and away from any hustle and bustle. We are already planning our next stay here.

Great loaction handy for walking to the town centre or harbour. The house is quiet probably because its set in it's own grounds. The room was spacious and clean. Comfortable bed. Really enjoyed the breakfast.
