Great location. Not too close to the beach but easy reach to it. Not overcrowded. Nice garden to have breakfast there. Hotel needs a bit of refresh, but we still enjoyed the stay.

Tips:

Ilfracombe - 7min drive, Italian restaurant next to wheatherspoons serves the best calamari, food was amazing. Lee bay - hidden beach behind the rocks, amazing views if going up the hill from there. Beaches are sandy. Just need the waves

The Manor House, though a little run down and in need of refurbishment in places, is utterly charming. We fell in love with it at first sight and we hope to return to savour it's wonderful views in other seasons.The restaurant served excellent breakfasts with a very accomodating and helpful chef. We had only one dinner as the restaurant is only open on Friday and Saturday evenings. The meal was delicious and we were sad that it was not open more. The swimming pool is warm and inviting and we made good use of it. The staff are all helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome. it would have been nice to use the tennis court but it is overgrown with weeds and in need of attention at the moment.

Tips:

We visited the near by National Trust property of Arlington Court which we can highly recommend. We also went to the beautiful Marwood Hill Gardens (leaflet in Hotel reception) which was absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit. We ate at The Crown in West Down a couple of evenings and had very nice reasonably priced meals. This is just a 10 minute drive from The manor. The fish and chips at Morthoe were lovely for an Al fresco meal and Ilfracombe has a super little Italian restaurant.

A delightful place to stay especially good for those with dogs. A lovely holiday for them too. I especially like being able to use the warm large indoor pool, and sauna. The wildlife menagerie of peacocks, ducks, Guinea fowl, emus was a joy not far from our accommodation, was a delight. One small criticism; Charging extra for a zedbed because there was only one double bed , I considered a bit mean. I was on holiday with my sister.

Tips:

Putsborough Beach fabulous ( less steep to Walk down than Woolacombe ) Friendly people with dogs. We were so lucky with amazing sunny days. Georgeham, small village between Trimstone and the coast . Two welcoming pubs. The Kings Arms the better. We tend to eat dinner quite late. Don’t be caught out by last orders for food at 9pm! Thank you

Really lovely place to stay, lots of original features, nice and cosy. Bed was super comfy and nice new bathroom with a great shower. We stayed here for a triathlon in Ilfracombe and the staff were really helpful and accommodating as we needed a really early breakfast that morning. They provided porridge pots, juice and fruit as well as a really good selection of tea/coffee/hot chocolate etc in the room. Normal breakfast the second morning was cooked to order and there was also a nice selection of cereal/juice etc etc. Great find, we will stay here again.

Tips:

Great location for Ilfracombe. The Coach House restaurant by Michael Caines at Kentisbury Grange is about 6 miles away and is an ABSOLUTE MUST

A peaceful, idyllic location close to Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. Warm and welcoming staff who were incredibly friendly but not intrusive. The decor was a bit outdated; this was not a major issue and didn't detract from our holiday. A great location. A great stay. We are going back in the summer. Highly recommended.

A great location for exploring North Devon and Exmoor.

Peaceful, quiet location- just exactly where I can have a perfect me time. Attended my friends' wedding, had a goodnight sleep before it and just absolutely had a relaxing day in the hotel after. Staff are pleasantly accommodating, courteous and kind. My room was clean and lovely, with a garden view. I love watching the sun rise every morning from my window while having a cup of tea. It's not like one of the modern hotels but it's where you would want to stay for a couple of days to unwind. If you're looking for an escape from your busy routine, it's a relaxing place to be. If you just want a place to sleep, you'll surely have a safe and good night.

Tips:

Only had breakfast at the hotel, loved it. Loved the garden, just sitting there alone for an hour while chatting with friends on Fb :) Didn't have lots of plan during my visit but I really had a wonderful stay.
