This was a last minute stay and we found the Hotel in a great location, away from the noise and hassle of the town. Donna and Paul made us the other guests feel welcome. Breakfast was great and the bonus of allowing dog's helped us make this choice.

Such a welcoming atmosphere and had some lovely chats with Donna! Didn't meet Paul but his breakfasts are excellent! Also our beds in room 5 were super comfy and we both slept very well indeed.

Tips:

Ilfracombe pubs/restaurants: The Pier has amazing sunset views from the "Poop Deck"! The George & Dragon, The Smugglers are excellent. Woolacombe pubs/restaurants: Captain Jacks, The Captains Table, The Pasty Shop. The Old Station pub at Blackmoor Gate. Watersmeet, Heddon Valley, Woolacombe to Mortehoe Valley of Rocks are all fabulous scenic walks. Lyndon /Lynmouth and the cliff railway.

Tips:

We went to the Grampus Inn in Lee Bay which had an open mike session with good music. It is very popular and it would be advisable to book a table if you wanted to eat there. In Ilfracombe we liked the Grassroots cafe.

Score Valley Hotel is a quaint family run gem of a hotel on the outskirts of Ilfracombe. Situated in a quiet valley it is extremely peaceful, with no sound of traffic or daily life apparent. The gardens are safe for your dog-friend to play in, and have a rustic charm. The landlady is both local and really friendly; nothing being too much trouble. The breakfast was nice and filled us up for the day. We will definitely book here again.

Tips:

Ilfracombe is a quaint Victorian town that has benefited from much improvement over the years. It is ideally placed for touring north Devon. The Pier pub on the harbour is recommended as a genuine dog friendly pub, with good food

We enjoyed a welcoming if brief overnight stay, being greeted warmly by Donna and her family on our arrival. Our room was spacious with a very comfortable bed and the bathroom was fully equipped with hairdryer, plenty of towels, toiletries etc. A good breakfast the following morning set us up for the day. The gardens were wonderful with lots of hidden corners just perfect for our dog to explore and my daughter particularly enjoyed the swing over the stream.

Tips:

We stayed very briefly but visited Ilfracombe in the morning. Looked like a lovely little town with various beaches, sandy and rocky, and which was very dog friendly.

We had a lovely welcome at Score Valley. We were travelling with a dog, so it's also important that our dog is welcomed and he definitely was here. The room was very clean and we had a lovely view from the window onto the garden. It's a bit out of the way in beautiful woodland, so don't count on walking into Ilfracombe for dinner if you intend to come back after dark, but it's a very tranquil setting and worth the seclusion.

Our recent stay at T Score Valley Country Hotel was most enjoyable and would liked to have stayed longer in the interesting old house cared for by it`s owners, Paul and Donna, a great couple who go to great lengths to make sure all their guests are comfortable. The breakfasts, taken in the lovely old dining room were superb and made a great start to the day. We will certainly be returning there. A rare find.

Tips:

We suggest Weatherspoons restaurant on the seafront at Ilfracombe is probably the best local eating house as the food is very good and reasonably priced but there are plenty of others to try. Boat trips along the local coastline or to Lundy Island are worth considering as are visits by car to Lynton and Lynmouth or Woolacombe with it`s lovely beaches

If you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track but close to facilities this is an excellent choice. Located out of town it’s quiet and peaceful but a short walk (30 minutes we think) to the centre of Ilfracombe, a little further to the harbour. The breakfast is outstanding as was the service we received. It felt like nothing was too much trouble and the honesty bar was very reasonably priced. The room was lovely with great views across the Devon country side. The location is highly recommended.

Tips:

We ate in the take thyme fish restaurant one night. A great fish restaurant where the food was delicious and the service excellent. I would advise booking. We did it on line via email and it was simple. We also visited Nells tea room on the high street. An excellent selection of homemade cakes and snacks. We read on line that they provide “the best cream tea in North Devon” We saw nothing to suggest this was not the case. The home made jam (plum and ginger) was delicious again would recommend booking - we were just lucky and got a table on spec.

Owners were very kind, made us feel right at home and were on hand to help at a moments notice. Will definitely be back.

Tips:

The walk down to town is lovely if you take the little lane and go through the park, its all downhill and can be done in 20-25 minutes, don’t be tempted to take a taxi :)

The clue is in the name of this Hotel, if you are looking for production line hotel with the usual long corridors and rooms leading off this is not for you! it is a large rambling country house and you can take great delight in what that means. large rooms reached by wide stairways, lovely lounge to relax and help yourself from the 'honesty bar' ,hosts who make you feel at home and who provide you with lovely breakfast all set in lovely rambling gardens in beautiful wooded valley. absolute heaven! We are sure its a dream come true for the owners as well as a nightmare! This old lady(all homes are female are they not?)must need lots of TLC both in and out and every task is no doubt fraught with problems you don't get in modern buildings, buts that's part of the charm and though an on going project, and probably a never ending one! the owners have managed to create an environment you van really unwind in and forget the world we live in, yes even Brexit! All this and we had the best nights sleep ever! We shall return!

Tips:

Each to there own, just relax in lounge and read or talk, wander the grounds and surrounding valley and woods and enjoy the beauty around you ,both animal and plant and be thankful for such places!

A lovely place with a warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are cosy, clean and comfortable and we loved how they are decorated and the garden is great too. It feels like a hotel, feels like home and feels like we are on holiday all at the same time.

We took the local bus to Woolacombe Bay and had a lovely walk on the beach and coffee, spent a pleasant couple of hours there. Beck to Ilfracombe and enjoyed a coast ride on the Ilfracombe Princess. Great commentary, well worth the trip. Very friendly people there too.

A traditional country house,that sits in a beautiful valley setting. It has large, interesting garden and grounds to explore, and there are many original features inside and outside of the property. We booked in at the last minute at the guest house,due our camping trip come to an abrupt end because of heavy rain. Score valley luckily had a cancellation and we was rescued from the bad weather. Donna made us welcome and was very helpful giving us directions to the guest house and any information she could. Our room was clean, cosy and comfortable. Donna had set up a cot for my baby and even hand made a little quilt to go in the cot. My baby was very comfortable as were we. The room has supplies of toiletries, tea/coffee facilities and a television with many channels. We had a full English breakfast served to us in the dining room, with tea and toast, all cooked perfectly. There were also fruits, breakfast cereals , and juices available. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend score valley guest house to anyone looking for homely accommodation at a very reasonable price.

Tips:

Ilfracoombe town is a short drive away and has a combination of of pubs, cafes and restaurants available. The local beaches are very scenic and are worth a visit.

An old house, converted into what it is now; some anomalies in the course of the conversion: masses of space, no mirror above the washbasin, lack of pressure in the shower, and a slightly humid feel when we walked in. That said, Donna's welcome was, well, welcome, the breakfast was spot-on and the house a delightful up-and-down, roundabout old-English place; long may it continue!

Tips:

We can recommend the fish & chip shop on the harbour road (was it called the Dolphin?), and Thyme (Out, was it?) in Fore Street. Damian Hirst's 'Verity', a travesty inspired by Degas, is worth a look, and the heart-rending memorial to Ekaterina Forlov, aka Kate, is a must, and well worth the cimb!

It had everything needed for an overnight stay. I liked the fact it was very quiet. The only slightly negative comment was that the bed springs were quite noticeable in that I could feel them, either a mattress topper or new mattress would solve that. In warmer weather I would have liked to be able to open the window a bit more, I wasn't game to try.

Tips:

The guest house is about a mile outside of the town but its possible to walk into Ilfracombe via a road that joins up with the main route in which we did to go to the fabulous Take Thyme fish restaurant. Just be aware if dark on the way back you'll need a torch as the final part is not lit...its also uphill. We enjoyed the walk.

Warm friendly welcome from the owners. Very spacious comfortable rooms with welcome tray filled to the brim with tea coffee milk and what ever else you could think of after a long journey this was most welcome. Bathroom had plenty of toiletries the owners had thought of everything.we were able to park our car earlier than booking in which gave us piece of mind and the opportunity to explore ilfracombe. Breakfast was outstanding with everything you could wish for and Donna was on hand at all times making sure you had enough.

Tips:

We ate in Smugglers which is in the Quayside area of ilfracombe for main meals good value for money and service very good we also ate the Naked cake Cafe which again. Was outstanding. There are plenty of places to eat however they get very busy so you may have to wait but we'll worth it. A visit to Linton and Linmouth is a must beautiful scenery and plenty of art and craft shops to visit. Also a drive to Dartmoor is worth the drive outstanding scenery. Ilfracombe has plenty to do from beautiful Clifftop walks to a trip through the tunnel to secluded beaches and Rockpools Also the harbour where you will find Verify a 66ft tall Damian Hurst statue

Tips:

I used this hotel to be close to Woolacombe beach. It is about 5 miles away by car and easy to get to. The hotel is in lovely secluded grounds and is very private. There are several places to eat and drink in both Woolacombe and Ilfracombe. Lots of things to do from country/coastal walks, learning to surf, boat trips...etc. I recommend eating at Bar Electric in Woolacombe as the food at the Red Barn has become very much like school dinners which is a shame as the location is lovely.

On arrival I found the bathroom light had just fused. This was fixed immediately and cheerfully. The atmosphere was very cheerful and friendly throughout my stay.

Tips:

I was walking sections of the coastal path, and this is an excellent base, with bus services into Ilfracombe from other centres. The access drive is not only narrow and dark, but steep and rather bumpy. Do not rush it! One snag about the Ilfracombe area is that it has very patchy mobile phone access.

Felt welcome as soon as we arrived, check in very simple, no fuss and bother. Loved the peace and quiet surroundings and could have heard a pin drop. Roger and Jenny are on hand should you need anything, but leave you to do your own thing. The room was pretty spacious (Room 7) with a nice sized bed, plenty of tea and coffee, some biscuits also :) The room was lovely and clean, the bath was sparkling clean, with nice towels supplied also. Breakfast was at a nice time and no rush rush, to get you in and out, the food was very nice and served at your own pace. We stayed 2 nights, and would have stayed more if we had time, would definitely come back here, if we come back to Ilfracombe in the future. Really enjoyed the stay and would recommend staying here anytime. Thanks for making our holiday enjoyable.

Tips:

Ilfracombe town is pretty busy, with lots of restaurants, Witherspoons is pretty good with its rooftop area, and Maddies chip shop is nice too. But there are plenty of places to eat, etc.

A lovely old fashioned place hidden away in the greenery. Although it's on the outskirts, it feels like it's in the middle of the countryside. Roger and Jenny are very friendly helpful hosts (who were able to accommodate a visiting local friend of ours for breakfast one morning) and the whole stay was very comfortable.

Tips:

It poured on Saturday so we drove an hour south to RHS Rosemoor which has spectacular gardens even in the rain (restaurant and gallery too). Cliff and beach walks at Lee and the Grampus pub there recommended.

friendly and welcoming, helpful and genuine. A pleasant place to stay just outside the hustle and bustle of the town. A very good breakfast to get you started.

Tips:

Very well situated for anyone doing any of the walking around this area. It's well off the road so it's quiet. It's an easy walk to town, in, say 20 mins, but be aware that the return walk is a gradual uphill with a steepish uphill bit at the end. It depends how much walking you've done during the day.

The lovely couple that own this B&B are always really friendly and you never feel like anything is too much trouble. They accommodated our surfing needs by allowing us to store our wet, sandy wetsuits etc in a covered area of the garden which meant that we could just get up and go each morning. Breakfast is to die for always too and I have visited a good few times now and will again!! Fabulous place to stay!

Tips:

Hele Billy's in Hele Bay is a must for dinner as its amazing food and very friendly for families and couples alike! Booking is essential though. Also the cream teas at The Mill in Hele are superb value and enormous!

Loved the serenity of this peaceful property. So many other B&B's are located on a busy main road that runs thriough the village itself. I found that this was a great option if you are travelling with a vehicle. My room was comfortable and had a window that opened onto a garden view . Good wifi was available from the downstairs sitting room althought not in the bedroom which might be a problem for some. Limited phone reception too but seems to be a reoccuring problem in all North Devon .

Tips:

I enjoyed my visits to Woolacombe Beach and the village of Mortehoe which are close by if driving . It has good dining options, shopping, beach walks and coastal scene walks watching surfers enjoy the waves.. Ilfracombe is down the hill and has an interesting High St and interesting pier area.

You will probably need a car to stay at Score Valley. It is not very far from town centre but walking is not recommended in the dark as there are no street lights near the B&B.

Clean, comfortable and characterful property with efficient, friendly and helpful people to provide a homely and welcoming time in a delightfully attractive area.

Tips:

Lundy is good for exploring. The complimentary lift in a Landrover to and from the pier and village is a great help for the less mobile and those with push chairs as the walk is a bit rough and steep in places. Hele Billy's was a good place to eat. It is popular so gets very busy at times making booking worth doing if time of eating is important otherwise they are willing to fit people in when things get quieter. Parking is at the kerb-side and limited but the public car park is a little farther on down the road to the harbour and free after 6.00pm We enjoyed the worship and welcome at the church of St Philip and St James (known to them as Pip and Jim's Church). Parking is in the church grounds and plentiful.

Tips:

It's a 5 minute drive from the town with lots of shops including a bakery and a co-op which came in handy. Was a 10 min drive from the harbour where we watched sunset and ate dinner outside along the seafront. Went to a gorgeous village which was 15mins drive away and ate at Ye Olde Globe which allows dogs. Wish we had more time there, restaurant was 14th century and village was gorgeous. Highly recommend staying at this hotel and exploring the local area which is so close to many bays and harbours.

We had a wonderful stay at Score Valley Country House and would definitely recommend a stay here to other travellers. It is ideally situated for the best of both worlds, close proximity to Ilfracombe but very relaxing and peaceful for a great nights sleep. Roger our host was attentive without being intrusive and Jennies breakfasts were great. All in all a lovely break, we shall return.

Tips:

Head for Lynton and Lynmouth for a trip on the cliff railway!

Although we were only there for one night to attend a wedding, we found it very pleasant and Roger was very friendly and accommodating to our needs. The room was very nicely decorated with good working facilities, and the bed and pillows were very comfortable giving us a good nights sleep compared to some places we have stayed.

Tips:

Didn't have time to sample any local ammenities.

Even though we have only stayed once before the couple who own this b&b remembered us and gave us the same superb service that we had a whole year ago!! Friendly and superb service and home comforts to make us feel welcome.

Tips:

Highly recommend Hele Billy's bar and restaurant for dinner but booking is a must. Only a few minutes from Ilfracombe town centre and about ten minutes from Score Valley itself.

Wonderful location, wonderful hosts. Will definitely stay again when we return to this area. Huge, comfy beds and very peaceful. WIFI availability on the upper floors would be a great addition, although I appreciate that it's not always easy in older buildings :)

Beautiful country house. Quiet and secluded yet within easy reach of the town and beach. Large spacious bedrooms with large en suites. Lots of original features in the house. Comfortable bar/lounge with attentive service. Just the right level of attention from the husband and wife hosts. Beatifully cooked breakfasts, with excellent service. I love the idea that the whole house can be booked for a group and you can tailor the stay to suit your party.

Tips:

Tunnels beach. Cafe blue at the entrance serves wonderfull meals and has both adult only and childrens play areas. Easy access to other North Devon coast towns. The chocolate shop/museum is well worth a visit. Make sure you leave plenty of room for Hockings icecream.
