Located at the bottom of a valley surrounded by trees, this was our perfect get away from it all destination. Close enough to the sea and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of everyday Devon. Yes the wifi is poor and phone reception is not good but that's what makes it perfect.

Thank you for your very generous review. Sadly we doubt that mobile phone reception in North Devon will ever improve much but we are delighted to report that we are now able to provide a good level of wifi throughout the building.

Breakfast every morning with a variety to choose from, had no issues for parking or needing anything as beds and room cleaned daily with plenty of parking space. Well done guys for making our visit what we wanted....peaceful! Sarah...

A lovely quaint hotel tucked away in a wooded glade but near enough to the town. The staff were very friendly, the food was great. Overall this a very well looked after hotel. I would recommend this to anyone

Have returned to Score Valley after several years to find it is still as beautiful and peaceful as before. Jenny and Roger have made a number of improvements including flat screen TV's etc. but the wifi is still mainly only available on the ground floor but is free of charge. Jenny's breakfast's are still excellent and very substantial.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Score Valley Country House is a licensed guest house set in its own pleasant grounds in a peaceful secluded valley on the edge of Ilfracombe, making it also an ideal base for enjoying the vast sandy beaches of Woolacombe and the Golden Coast or exploring the wonders of Exmoor. A husband and wife team we take pride in the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of our home offering a good nights sleep, a hearty breakfast and are always happy to offer ideas and advice to ensure you get the most from your visit to this beautiful area. We have plenty of free parking. Due to the age of the property and the running streams we suggest that you consider this before bringing very young children. We are pleased to take small/medium dogs in three of our rooms on request. Please check availability of these before booking. Our double rooms are equipped with zip and link beds making us completely flexible to accept single sex groups or couples for walking, golfing or shooting holidays etc. ... more   less
