About
Description
We are an independent family run hotel. The building was built in 1921 and still retains many of it's original features. Set in it's own private gardens, but a short walk down to the town centre and high More street shops and the beach. We also have two self catering cottages both sleeping just four persons, set in our gardens with amazing views over Ilfracombe. Less
