Every thing we needed in accommodation. Clean bright welcoming with a great host who is friendly and nothing too much trouble.Lovely breakfast each morning. Great place to explore the surrounding area by foot or car. Don't miss the walk by cliff and fields to Lee stunning views.Enjoy the harbour shops and surrounding walks.Visit the Victorian beaches from the tunnel cut out by the minors. Plenty of selection for eating out. A must to see and enjoy will staying in a top spot. Andy and Iris

Room Tip: I think all rooms good. probably back better but we were at road front and it was fine.

We had a lovely stay in this gorgeous guest house. Very warm greeting by Julieanne and Peter and great service throughout. Comfortable, spacious room. Within easy walking distance of the very pretty Illfracombe. Parking on site. Great breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer.

A lovely room, superb facilities, friendly hosts and an outstanding cooked breakfast made our 2 night stay a joy whilst visiting Ilfracombe for a wedding.

The Guest House was ideally located and when comparing it with the accommodation of other wedding guests we got a better stay for less money when comparing it to similar venues nearby.

Room Tip: The family suite was very spacious and quiet.

Very helpful and supportive when we had car troubles. Seen some comments about distance out of town but we didn't find this a problem. There are regular buses past, with the stops right outside the house. Buses run late into the evening.
