Fantastic hospitality at this lovely B&B! The hosts are the most welcoming and friendly I have ever known with an excellent knowledge of the local area. The room was clean, light and airy. Really good location and parking available. Can't fault it!

We stayed for a week in July 2016 and really enjoyed having David and Marianna’s hospitality longer than most guests. They are welcoming and friendly whilst still being professional, and have a wealth of knowledge about North Devon and things to do in the area. They have produced driving and walking tour cards that you can take out with you,... More

We enjoyed the homemade, bountiful breakfasts; the rooms, though simple, were filled with old Hollywood charm; the hosts were knowledgeable and full of character. A lovely place in a lovely town. Timeless!

The owner was so gracious and inviting, and was very helpful with suggestions on things to see in Ilfracombe, and she also gave us the very best instructions on the most scenic drive east. It was truly... More

The rooms were immaculate and decorated very modern we had a choice of 2 but opted for the smaller Ann harding room which was very beautiful. We... More
