If you are looking to spend time in and around the Bideford area, you cannot go wrong staying at this lovely B&B. We were going to Lundy island on a day trip for my partners 50th, and needed to be close to Bideford quay. Ellerton fitted the bill perfectly. We received such a genuinely warm welcome by the lovely landlady... More

The bedroom initially seemed fine and it is in a good location near bus stops, Morrisons and only short walk from town. Plenty of tea and coffee and chocolate biscuits. Furniture tops were clean but some cobwebs around ceiling and dirty skirting boards. Shower worked well but the wash basin is very small. TV had an external aerial that you... More

Thank you for pointing out the problem with the tv aerial. I found the aerial lead had been loosened in the tv socket. Pushing it back in gave full reception over the first twelve channels, at least. No doubt over-zealous dusting! Sorry if you found a ceiling cobweb. I've been round with the feather duster. I do all my own... More

As a cheap place to bed down for the night it's ok, but ... There are cobwebs round the ceiling, dust on the wardrobe tops (admittedly I'm taller than most) grubby marks on doors and around light switches, scorch marks on sheets (No Smoking policy???), the odd hair in the bed & round the sink, and the decor is firmly...

I am delighted the gentleman and his wife enjoyed a restful night's sleep and a good breakfast at our bargain prices. They booked two rooms at £35 per room, one of which was a double en-suite. I take all criticism seriously and am pleased to report that the single room in question has been restyled for the 2015 season. I... More

Loved our stay in Bideford. Thank you, Annette for the lovely accommodation and breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Good pubs and restaurants within walking distance, and the walk did us so much good after all the big breakfasts! Thank you, Annette for a memorable stay. Col & Bev Page, Newcastle, Australia.

I booked a night at the Ellerton at very short notice, and it took only a few minutes to walk to the house from the tourist information centre. My room was fine and breakfast was good, at a great price. Bus stops nearby are served by regular services that allow rapid access to Appledore, Westward Ho, Bideford, Instow, Barnstaple, Braunton...

Rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained with en-suite. It's also situated in a quiet area, which makes for a relaxing visit. It's close to town and there are attractions within walking distance. The owner offered helpful advice and had local knowledge of where to visit.
