“Perfect house! Perfect location!”
Reviewed 2 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just stayed here with a group of 20 friends for a 40th birthday. We were all so impressed - beautiful house and perfect for this kind of event. Was spotlessly clean and everything you could possibly need was there and the communication with the owners before our arrival was excellent too. The pool was amazing as were all the other facilities and the bonus of a group of Alpaca's in the field behind the house. We were very kindly invited to go and meet them during feeding time and the gentleman who introduced us was lovely as was his wife - super friendly. We all had such a great time and part of this was down to the fact that we didn't have any stress in trying things we may need to help our weekend go smoothly - it was all there! Lots of space, fabulous rooms - really can't recommend this place highly enough. Thank you!!

“Ticked all our boxes”
Reviewed 6 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We were a group of 20 mixed age adults celebrating a 40th birthday, but this house is well suited for families with children of all ages and they are well catered for. There are lots of separate areas for relaxing, socialising and hide-and-seek :-). The kitchen is comprehensively equipped for a large group, with some initial cleaning and condiments supplied. The pool and hot tub were well used, and the pool wet room showers were very handy for when the shared bathroom wasn't available. The house is comfortable and was very well heated. The parking was just adequate, we did a fair re-creation of the opening scenes of the comedy series "Butterflies", but we did have probably more cars than normal. The outside area would be lovely in warmer weather. Bedding was clean and beds comfortable, well mine was and I didn't hear any complaints. All-in-all a successful choice for a celebratory weekend away.

“Fabulous trip bringing the whole family together”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The house is set in a beautiful location within walking distance to a park and Ilfracombe, not so good for anyone who struggles with walking. The swimming pool is fantastic and the house has plenty to do if you are unable to get out and about due to the weather. The house is well equipped and furnished to a high standard in most rooms. We were a mixed family group ranging from 3 months to aged 85 and will be hoping to stay again in the future. Would thoroughly recommend this house you will not be disappointed!

“Fab facilities, great location, would highly recommend”
Reviewed 12 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at Bicclescombe Grange for a joint 30th birthday with 22 guests and had a fantastic time. The indoor heated pool, hot tub and indoor table tennis were favourites, and the pool, darts and piano were great too.
It was the perfect setting for a large group of friends to spread out over a long weekend, and all the rooms were surprisingly large with very comfortable beds.
The location is perfect - we enjoyed a day surfing in the sunshine in Woolacombe, walked along the coast and spotted seals at Mortehoe followed by afternoon tea, watched the sunset on Ilfracombe mount and then visited Croyde bay on our final day.
This is a fantastic house, especially as it is very hard to find one with such modern facilities of this size. Allison and Andrew made the booking process very easy using their online system, and were very helpful before during and after our stay.
I would highly recommend it to anyone and will certainly be back.

“I would recommend Bicclescombe Grange to anyone.”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We needed a large property in Ilfracombe which could accommodate a large group including families with infants and children, couples (young and mature) and singles. Bicclescombe Grange fitted the bill very well. Bedrooms are plenty big enough, and even though most were not en-suite, there were enough bathrooms for all the guests to manage well enough. The kitchen is large, well equipped and well laid out with additional fridge and freezer space in the adjacent utility room where the washing and drying facilities were also located. The dining room is huge and has capacity for additional guests if needed. The lounge doesn't have such a large capacity but the adjoining conservatory gives additional seating. The separate games room is unsuitable for children ( snooker and darts and a piano) and because it is below the accommodation of the owners parents cannot be used late at night.
The indoor swimming pool however is much better than would normally be found in a private rental property of this type. It is a very good size and is warm enough even for infants and young children, and the pool area is also kept warm. There is also a very good hot tub and the whole pool area seems to be well looked after.
The gardens are extensive, attractive and very well maintained. There is parking for about about six cars adjacent to the house.
The WiFi was a little unreliable if a lot of people were trying to use it at the same.
