Just returned from a very enjoyable stay at the Woodlands. Caroline and Jon were very welcoming and also knowledgeable about all of the local attractions. The location is very convenient for walking into town or getting up to the stunning views from Torrs Park. Breakfast was a fine experience and set us up perfectly for our days activities . We...

It's my third time staying with Caroline and John at The Woodlands, and each year it just gets better. The location of the house is absolutely stunning! With amazing views over Ilfracombe, a long meandering garden that takes you to a gentle and relaxing stream and easy access to some of the best coastal walks. John and Caroline are brilliant...

Visited ilfracomb for a wedding at the tunnels, great location to the wedding and town centre. Lovely place to stay, home from home, owners very welcoming. Clean, comfy, lovely views, tastefully furnished & decorated. Breakfast was excellent, would certainly recommend this B&B. Only feedback would be the showers low water pressure.

Warm welcome and lovely room with big balcony overlooking the lovely gardens! Great selection of hot drinks available in the room. Had a great sleep in an extremely comfortable bed after a pleasant evening spent in Ilfracombe. The full English breakfast the following morning was absolutely fab and in a lovely room again overlooking the gardens. HIGHLY recommend

My partner and I spent a long weekend at the Woodlands and we loved it! It is a beautiful and very relaxing place, run by great people. We stayed in the top floor self contained apartment and the view was great. There is lot of space and the bed is super comfortable. The great bonus is that Caroline is one...

We booked for 2 nights, but ended up staying for 3. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, Jon & Caroline. Cooked to order breakfasts are really top notch. Eggs Benedict, although not on the menu, were produced the next day! Overall, an extremely pleasant stay.

We had a lovely stay at The Woodlands during our holiday in north Devon. It was a delight to go back to our beautiful rooms (we stayed in three different ones) in the evening after a long day of sightseeing and exploring. The rooms were comfortable, quiet, clean, with beautiful views and had everything we needed plus more. The breakfast...

My wife and I married at the very popular Tunnels Beaches in Ilfracombe on 17th September 2016. We decided not to stay directly at the venue and instead booked 3 nights at The Woodlands, about 2 minutes up the road. The first thing to mention is that the couple who run the hotel are brilliant. They were incredibly friendly and...
