“Fabulously well equipped house in excellent position”
Reviewed July 30, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Have just returned from a week's stay at this exceptional holiday rental. Visited with my husband, two daughters, son-in-law and two grandchildren.

The house was spread over three floors with three double bedrooms, a single room and a room with bunk beds. There were two bathrooms containing baths and rainforest showers.
The loungle was a good size and very comfortable. Wi-fi was available. The kitchen was well appointed with all appliances including dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and microwave.

What set this rental apart from the rest was the provision of all household items you could possibly need. There was also a welcome booklet with lots of local information and a "how to use" booklet for all the appliances. Fresh flowers had been placed in the kitchen together with a starter pack of milk and bread.

A lot of thought has gone into this holiday rental and we as a family would not hesitate to return. It actually felt like a home from home. For anyone looking to stay in Ilfracombe this is the place to rent.

“Superb base for a lovely family holiday”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Stayed here over half term with 4 kids and 4 adults.

Amazing house, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully fitted out.

Great communication before and during the let, with really nice touches like bread and coffee / tea / milk already there.

Highly recommended, we will be back.

“Excellent holiday let”
Reviewed April 7, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Primrose House over the Easter weekend. The house is lovely, decorated very well and very homely. It is very spacious and easily accommodated 6 adults and 2 children aged 12 and 10.
The house makes an excellent base for exploring Devon. A great time was had by all the family and we would definately recommend Primrose House. (My son especially liked the playstation!) Thank you Caroline

“Even better 2nd time”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Second year running at the house and it was just as great as last time. The bath rooms put many expensive hotels to shame. Other friends joined us this year and they were amazed at how good this place is. The games kept the kids occupied when we weren't going karting, quad biking or down to the beach and there are lots of good walks to take the dogs on. We are already planning to come back next year!
