Fantastic place - set in the most beautiful location, the building have undergone a stunning restoration. The room was luxurious, beautifully furnished and finished to the highest possible standard. Breakfast was food and to cap it all there was a fantastic welcome and the most hospitable service you could ever want. In all, one of the best places I've had...

We were greeted by ann-Marie and were taken to our room. What a fabulous room it was (room 14). Very spacious and well kept. Really clean. Bathroom was beautiful and shower was good.

Wildercombe House is a great place to stay and is more like a small boutique hotel than a regular b&b. Anne Marie was amazingly helpful (ordering cabs for us) and the facilities were perfect. State of the art showers and beautiful bathrooms, and the best bedlinen I've ever slept in while away. The eggs benedict in the morning were delicious....

Lovely welcome, fabulous social areas, comfy beds, spacious rooms and wonderful breakfast. We were leaving early for Lundy so they were happy to do a cooked breakfast early. Just a shame we were only staying for one night.
