Varley House was built at the turn of the 20th Century for Officers recuperating from the Boer War. Hence we have grand rooms with high ceilings which make your stay even more pleasant than you expected. We have a spacious lounge where you can sit and chat, play games, or just read whilst enjoying a drink purchased from our bar.This is a nice quiet establishment ideally suited for the coastal path for walkers, opposite Hillsborough Nature reserve, and a good stopping point for those wanting to travel to Lundy island. Also all of our rooms have a stunning view of our local scenery. Come and enjoy the personal touch from ourselves, where we go out of our way to help you enjoy your stay no matter how short

We loved this place! The decor is very traditional which framed our English seaside visit perfectly. Everything was spotlessly clean, and host Rod provided a wonderful, friendly welcome. Our room was sweet, with a sea view, comfortable beds and a nice, new en suite. Breakfast...More

Stayed here either side of a three day trip to Lundy Island. Convenient pleasant stay. Nice location with a good local pub for food. Nice braekfast. But why must the review be 200 words, when the count is in characters with a 200 minimum???
