Chris and Derek were very welcoming. The food was excellent; delicious cake and tea on arrival and fresh fruit with breakfast were the highlights. We would certainly stay again if we are in this part of Devonn.

Arrived Saturday PM after a longer than expected drive due to motorway delays. Met by Derek the proprietor who helped with luggage and showed us room. Absolutely gobsmacked it was fantastic! Large bedroom with king size bed,tv wardrobe, bedside cabinets and dressing table with mirrors and plenty of plug points. The room was bright having 2 double windows overlooking fields and coast. Beautifully decorated with new carpets and fittings of the highest standard. But that wasn’t it all . It had another room with comfortable sofa and large wall mounted TV , Tea and Coffee and biscuits all supplied, and a great view of Coast . Fabulous en-suite, shower boarding throughout and a great shower cubicle. Cannot find fault in anything. Breakfast was massive, offering everything you wanted, from fruit , cereal , Yogurt, full English vegetarian. Home made bread in white or whole meal. Tea , coffee and a welcoming conversation. Cannot speak anymore highly of this accommodation. Thoroughly recommend, and great location for Woolacombe and Ilfracombe and surrounding area

Great welcome with tea/coffee/cake appreciated. Breakfasts - fantastic, huge portions - last all day! Comfortable sitting room with books/magazines/games/TV which could be used any time. Lovely large fluffy towels! Bedroom with all usual facilities, plus extras like the voluntary provision of plates/napkins for snacks, extra coffee and fresh milk! Fresh flowers and fabric napkins and tablecloths! A high standard in all respects, the hosts could not do enough for us.

Tips:

Restaurant fifty yards away. All the facilities and entertainment from several interesting seaside towns within a very few miles. Zoo, Wild-life park (though not very suitable for wheel-chair users as terrain spectacular but with very steep gradients; Swimming pool; An excellent place for a holiday for adults and children.

Very nice comfortable B&B. Very warm welcome from Derek and Chris. The tea and cake on arrival was very welcome. We really liked our room with its own sitting room.

Tips:

Try Ebrington Arms at Knowle and especially the garlic mushrooms (one portion is more than enough for two) and the main meals are huge. We also liked the Ship Aground at Morthoe.

Just left after a wonderful 4 days here with my mum. The owners are so lovely it feels as though you are visiting family rather than staying at a bed and breakfast. Location is perfect just 2.5 miles from ilfracombe or woolacombe. Rooms are lovely and comfy and the breakfasts are amazing all cooked fresh to order as well as fresh fruits yoghurt and cereals. Was a lovely treat getting welcome with tea and home made cake on arrival too. Thanks for a lovely stay we will definitely be back

What a lovely welcome from Chris and Derek, we had a cafetière of coffee and delicious Victoria Sponge on arrival, much needed after a 6 hour journey. We were staying in the suite which was fantastic, bedroom, bathroom and sitting room. There was a t.v. In the sitting room and in the bedroom, so no argument when the football was on. The breakfast, well there was everything you could possible want, fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, juice and a good choice of cooked breakfast. May I say the best poached eggs I've had, so good I had them every day and my husband loved the full English. Chris and Derek were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location was great for us as it is on the road between Ilfracome and a Woolacombe with their own parking. This was great for us as parking can be a problem in the towns and we could head off in either direction as the fancy took us.

What a lovely 4 day stay we had! Derek and Chris are perfect hosts, we were greeted with delicious homemade cake and coffee. The breakfast was amazing, fresh raspberries,strawberries,blueberries etc. The full english was delicious, very filling and constant refills of coffe,toast if you wanted it. We had the suite at the top of the house, it was so comfortable and warm ( as unfortunately a bit chilly the days we stayed) The views from our windows back and front were amazing. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to High Ways House next time we visit Devon.

Tips:

RHS Rosemoor is well worth a visit, Arlington Manor also just to see the Golden Coach totally beautiful.

This is a lovely place to stay in a good location for exploring North Devon. The place is spotless, Derek and Chris are very friendly and welcoming, the breakfasts cannot be faulted and our room, the double suite,was really lovely with a king size bed, en suite shower room, sitting room with sofa, 2 large TVs, tea and coffee and fantastic views when the mists cleared. We were even given tea and cake on arrival. We would definitely stay here again if in the area

Tips:

Good places to visit in the area include Marwood Hill Gardens, RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Clovelly, Lynton and Lynmouth. We struggled to find good places to eat in the evening not knowing the area well but Derek and Chris's suggestion to eat at the Smugglers in Ilfracombe was a good one and we ate there twice. We wouldn't recommend the Muddiford Inn as food wasn't very good and we also ate at the Beggars Roost near Lynmouth which was ok.

The hospitality from Chris and Derek was superb, striking a great balance of being attentive without being overbearing. They are natural hosts and made me feel very welcome. The facilities are tidy and clean, nicely decorated and great value for the price paid. The breakfast is cooked to perfection, with quality ingredients, and I left the hotel full every morning! I have absolutely no reservation in recommending High ways hotel to anyone for quality and value. It will be my first choice if I am ever in the area again.

Tips:

Chambercombe Manor Interesting for the history and the ghost stories, although I saw no ghosts! RNLI lifeboat ride in Ilfracombe Interesting tour of the coastline with a narrative of the landmarks and history. A chance to see see native sea life such as Seals and dolphins, but again I was unlucky and saw neither Exmoor Zoo Intimate zoo with good and knowledgeable staff and a variety of different animals to see. Opportunities to interact with and feed the animals. All were very interesting and represented good value for money

Then drive up to the car park which overlooks the beach [ your hosts will know the one], get some folding chairs out of boot [or behind the seats dependiing on your vehicle] and eat your cod and chips while watching the sunset. [WEATHER AND FOOD PREFERENCES PERMITTING]. As my mate says "LUSH!!!"

Jon and I would like to thank you for a wonderful stay. We thought you were friendly and very helpful and accommodating. We received very good advice on where to go and where to park. We particularly found it useful to have our own key so that we could come and go as we needed. I would also like to say a very big thank you for arranging the birthday cake.

Tips:

High Ways House is perfectly located and takes only a few minutes drive from woolacombe and Ilfracombe. We ate at several different restaurants and all the food was amazing. The fudge and clotted cream ice cream is highly recommended! We had an amazing time and we hope to return for another holiday soon.

The owners were just lovely and helpful. Breakfast was great. The room was spotlessly clean with a teeny ensuite. It was a little old fashioned with some crazy decor combinations!

Tips:

The house is located quite a distance from both woolacombe and ilfracombe so not walking distance. We had planned to cycle but the rain stopped us from doing this, particularly in the evening for dinner. The bus service did not seem to run in the evenings so we ended up driving to get to nice places to eat and consequently no boozy drinks! Having said that if you plan on driving everywhere then it's perfectly placed between the two towns. There is a fab seafood restaurant in ilfracombe called 'espresso' that offered fresh local produce. Woolacombe just seemed to offer lots of fast fried food, albeit nice.

There is a shorter route to/from Croyde that the owner told us about which made life easier. The house is well located for exploring the area.

Upon our arrival, we had a very warm greeting from our hosts, Derek and Chris and were given tea and cake (beautiful), which was a welcoming surprise, in the communal lounge and we immediately feel at home and chatted to them and their friend for quite some time. Our room was just perfect in every respect, being beautifully decorated and pristine, with a lot of attention to detail and quality of furnishings, including ornaments and a splendid picture above the bed. The breakfast was a real treat and of a standard that couldn't be bettered, with a vast choice, including fresh strawberries and raspberries. The full English breakfast was a feast for the eyes apart from the stomach and be assured that you won't go hungry during your stay. Derek and Chris are very knowledgeable about the local area and beyond and will give good advice on places worth visiting. They certainly helped us. Although we only stayed a few days and it was our first visit there, we felt it had been longer and had gained two new friends. It was sad to leave, but I know we will be back.

Chris and Derek were a lovely hospitable couple. They made us feel at home. Nothing was any problem. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. I liked the little incidentals, such as, the offer of a cup of tea as soon as you arrive. After breakfast they would bring themselves a coffee and chat to us. Anything we ever wanted to call them.The whole place was spotless. They must work very hard. Brilliant

Tips:

A good central spot for Woolacombe beach, Ilfracombe, Barnstable and surrounding countryside.
