A lovingly restored period house, a little like something out of Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca! We had a gorgeous, large, well-equipped room (with a tiny bathroom) that had inspiring views from the first floor of the sea and dramatic coast. We didn't receive the warmest welcome and there are one or two small things, that if rectified, could make the...

Beautiful house set in wonderful setting but only a short walk to town. Comfortable and spotlessly clean. Single room not en-suite but dedicated shower room which was next door. Breakfast was quick and slick and perfect. Hosts were very helpful and friendly.

This house is, sometimes B&B, sometimes holiday let in it's entirety, our party of 17 had it to ourselves for a week and all agreed that it was a super place for a family holiday. I'm not being critical, far from it, but the decor and furnishings are, well, unremarkable, everything works without making one fearful of causing damage when...

This is kind of like staying in someone's house, but a beautiful manor house. The property overlooks the water. There is a great little thatched pub nearby. The breakfast is tasty, and the room you eat it in is stately, with a view of the side yard. The location is perfect; we had no problem walking to the town centre,...

A mix of Georgian grandeur and shabby chic gives this place a comfortable yet special feel. The interior was great and you can see the owners are still working at some parts of the exterior. I was more than happy with the breakfast .. the home made brown bread being particularly excellent. Yet no 5 star? Unfortunately the shower was...

Fantastic B&B run by a lovely couple. Very family friendly, they even let us use their private lounge for entertaining our little one after breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble, the cooked breakfast is fantastic and the rooms are very clean and well equipped. Has a really nice homely feel to it and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone.

We stopped at Laston house back in March this year for 3 nights. We had a sea view room on the ground floor and had excellent views across to the Bristol channel. The rooms itself was clean and well appointed with flat screen TV and a nice comfy bed. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice and great quality....

Perhaps the bed is a bit squeaky in the very large room we were in but the outlook through the bay windows compensated. Very pleasant hosts, a good breakfast and a nice pub very close by. We should have stayed longer in Ilfracombe, a very pleasant place. Wifi available but not good in room itself.

Recently had the privilege of staying 1 night at Laston House and was astounded. . This beautiful building is being lovingly restored by the current hosts to a high standard with attention to detail being carefully considered. When entering the building the hall and entrance immediately stuns you with the size and how it has been maintained and furnished superbly....
