“Even better 2nd time”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Second year running at the house and it was just as great as last time. The bath rooms put many expensive hotels to shame. Other friends joined us this year and they were amazed at how good this place is. The games kept the kids occupied when we weren't going karting, quad biking or down to the beach and there are lots of good walks to take the dogs on. We are already planning to come back next year!

“Fantastic house”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We've just enjoyed a weeks stay in Primrose House. Huge property with plenty of space for the 8 of us. Fully equipped with everything you need and more. The children loved the games and the dvd collection, our 11 month old had a brillant time in her walker, whizzing round the downstairs space. Lovely views towards the Torrs. We visit ilfracombe every year and have always struggled to find accomodation big enough for 8 but Primrose House ticked all the boxes and is by far the biggest property we have stayed in. I would highly recommend it.

“great house”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

happy to recommend Primrose House to any one looking a large spacious house that is really well equipped to a high standard. Caroline, has added lots of nice touches and thoughtful help- eg bread and milk on arrival, fresh flowers, games and books ,wi fi. The house is spotless with lovely linen and kitchen items. The harbour is a 15-20 minute walk . No real problems parking outside house . would be happy to go back
