Hotels

Watermouth Lodges

A399, Watermouth, Ilfracombe EX34 9SJ, UK – 01271 865361

We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 year old daughter and we had the most amazing time! The lodge was wonderfully clean and we had everything we needed. Although fully booked when we stayed it was so peaceful and we all slept really well. The facilities were fantastic and our daughter loved the pool, indoor and outdoor playground and we enjoyed drinks outside by the outdoor pool and lovely food. We loved it so much we have already recommended to family and friends and we will definitely be back! Thank you for a lovely short break!

Stayed here for a week, a fantastic location with loads to do nearby and great facilities. Enjoyed the stay very much, the lodge we stayed in was pretty basic but had everything we needed for the week and a few things we didn't expect like a clothes iron and DVD player for the TV. The room could have been cleaned better, we had to give it a once over with the brush and mop to get up all the dust and grass off the floor. If you're the type of person that checks on top of the cupboards for dust this probably isn't the place for you. But other than that it was as expected. Reception and bar area are good and staff are helpful and friendly. The pool (I only used the indoor one) and spa pool are ideal for the size of the site. Overall giving Watermouth Lodges four stars, could be improved by giving the lodge a deep clean.

Imperial Hotel

Great place to stay with easy access to the town staff in the hotel are very friendly. Clean and tidy in all areas of the hotel, plenty of places if you like walking.

Nice, clean hotel. The meals were great. Varied menu. Staff are brilliant. For the price that we paid, it was excellent!

Pubs, Gastro Pubs and Bars

The Pier Brewery Tap & Grill

The Quay, Ilfracombe EX34 9EQ, UK – 01271 865516

Friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Great Food and Helpful and welcoming Landlords and staff. Great position (right on the Pier and harbour approach) Thoroughly recommended. 5 Stars from me

A quirky pub along the edge of the harbour. Good selection of drinks. Haven't eaten here yet. They also have live music.

Very helpful and lovely cute old pub. Great view on the walk from Ilfracombe harbour as well.

Cook Island Freehouse

Mullacott Cross, Ilfracombe EX34 8NY, UK – 01271 865500

after reading some of the reviews we weren't sure what to expect but we decided to try the buffet breakfast and found it to be excellent! friendly staff,tasty food and a very reasonable price. i dont know what the other moaning b*******s on here are complaning about.

At 8pm on a Tuesday evening the bar was quite empty which was a bit off putting as it is in the edge of a holiday park and within easy access of a few more parks. However the staff are pleasant and the tables clean. The menu was not outstanding in it's selection of dishes but there was a reasonable choice. The prices are on a par with similar establishments in the area . We both chose the salmon fishcakes which come with salad and the fish cakes were lovely. The salad was all fresh and crispy if a bit unimaginative. I would certainly visit again .

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!

The Sherborne Lodge

Torrs Park, Ilfracombe EX34 8AY, UK – 01271 862297

Wonderfully quirky b&b, just off the centre of beautiful Ilfracombe. One of our all-time favourite UK break locations. Highly recommend.

A simple guest house with clean rooms and friendly staff. It looks a little tired but that is reflected in the price. Great breakfast!

Acorn Lodge

4 St James Pl, Ilfracombe EX34 9BH, UK – 01271 862505

Fabulous little place. I have stayed twice now. The first time I booked though a Booking site as it claimed to give the best rate! Then the 2nd time I booked DIRECT. This was by far the best way and BOOKING DIRECT through their own website gives the best value for money. BEST TIP. BOOK DIRECT.

Very nice people. Good breakfast. The area, both the city and the hills are very beatiful. We stayed there for three nights.

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!

Campsites and Caravan Parks

Mill Park Limited

Mill Ln, Berrynarbor, Ilfracombe EX34 9SH, UK – 01271 882647

On easter morning, woke up to a small nest outside my door with lots of chocolate eggs in it. Lovely touch. Cant fault this site, its clean and very well maintained although my preference would be for it to become child free...

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Mill Park Ltd. It is a great base to explore North Devon. The staff were helpful and courteous and the site is really well maintained, despite the fact they had had awful weather prior to our stay. The site facilities are clean and well kept. We stayed in the Top Field and the showers weren't the best in the world, but more than adequate and very clean. We enjoyed the onsite bar in the evening which is great for families. We will definitely return.

Watermouth Valley Camping Park

Watermouth, Ilfracombe EX34 9SJ, UK – 01271 862282

We spent our 2 week holiday at Watermouth Valley campsite. We were staying in out trailer tent with our 15 and 12 year old sons. we were also with three other parties, all staying in tents. We found the owners to all be polite and extremely helpful. The ground we were allocated was nice and level and even though we did get some heavy rain there was no puddling. there are two shower blocks. One with 5We wet rooms and a larger block with separate shower cubicles. the shower cubicles have an area to change with a shelve to put your clothes with a shower curtain. We saw the showers being cleaned at intervals throughout the day. The beach behind the campsite was greatly enjoyed by us, especially by the kids. It's not sandy, like in the picture. It's shingle, but brill for a swim in a calmer sea and to take the dogs. Beware, the walk down is 240 steps, some quite steep, so don't go carrying lots of stuff! If you have dogs it's a great campsite with the coastal path running right through it. Overall it was clean, welcoming and very reasonably priced. Definitely recommend it.

A friendly family run site welcoming walkers of the SWCP . Beautiful valley stunning views of golden cove.

Little Meadow Camp Site

Watermouth, Ilfracombe EX34 9SJ, UK – 01271 866862

The view from our pitch was stunning, what ever the weather. Really liked the 'alcove' layout of the whole site. The entrance by car is tricky as not sign posted before the turn off and a blind turn out onto the road. Pedestrian access is also tricky as there isn't a footpath all the way along the road (which cars travel very fast along) and the path from the site was treacherous on the one occasion we used it. A quiet site which is nice but 9pm a little early! As with other sites that charge per pitch for 2 people, not sure why I have to pay full pitch price + dog price per night although just me and the dog. I paid more than my 2 people companions.

Me and my husband stayed here for 5 nights. On arrival we were impressed with the lovely view from the site and the facilities were nice and clean, not mind blowing but considering they were free they were all you could ask for really. We didn't really feel like we had a very warm welcome, there was just a note left outside the reception hut telling us to camp where we liked and to call back at another time. The whole time throughout our stay we only ever saw anyone in the reception about 3 times between leaving notes on a chalkboard outside. If we had a problem we would've had the inconvenience of walking up to the farm and bothering the owner. Also hearing complaints about their guests wasn't very pleasant, if you're going to run a campsite at least show your face and show interest in your guests. On our last day, we stayed until 12:30, you're meant to check out at 11 but once again there was no one around to wish us fair well so we thought why not? 😂. Although a nice walk down to the local cosy pub (which does amazing food and give you a great welcome) we won't be visiting again.
