We had a fantastic experience at Epchris House. We live in London but had decided to get married at Tunnels beaches and were looking for somewhere nice and relaxed to stay during our wedding period. We definitely found a perfect home from home in this guesthouse, it is homely, warm and relaxed and the running of it is very professional and efficient. Nicky is SO accomodating and helpful and her expertise didn't stop at her wonderful guesthouse, she helped us with several other things like finding a local florist too!
The surroundings are also fantastic, which include the lovely pool. The bridal suite is spacious, beautifully decorated and very fit for purpose! Our wedding weekend was made very special by staying here. Thoroughly recommend! Ps Breakfast is yummy too!

Room Tip: If you are getting married or just want space choose the garden room, if not all the other rooms are...

This excellent B&B is a lovely old house in a neighbourhood of stately Victorian brick homes. Very friendly owners! Our room was bright, clean and lovely, with an immaculate bathroom. Epchris House boasts a fabulous garden with a patio, a swimming pool, and is a short walk to downtown Ilfracombe. Delicious, generous breakfasts start the day off right. A winner of a B&B!

We occupied all 9 rooms for our daughter's wedding at Tunnels Beaches in June. The setting with lovely gardens and outside seating were perfect as we had a pre-wedding buffet for 50 organised by Nicky and family along with a local Deli - all excellent and stress free due to the care and attention provided. All rooms are spacious, well furnished with an apart style room ( garden room) taken by the bride and groom - ideal for wedding preparation. Breakfast - very good and freshly cooked - great room for gathering of friends and family. Nicky extremely helpful and went the extra mile prior to our visit on many planning issues towards the wedding. Weather was also glorious!

Room Tip: All spacious and well furnished.

We have just returned from staying here for 4 nights for a Family Wedding at nearby Tunnels Beaches, and couldn't have been more comfortable or well looked after. Nicky and family are very attentive and helpful. The rooms are all superb (we occupied all 9 rooms for one night) and are beautifully decorated and clean. There is a stunningly beautiful garden (just wish we could have had more time to enjoy it) and a large sunny patio. Dog friendly too which is a bonus. We would definitely like to come back and stay here.

We stayed here for three nights. We were fortunate to be upgraded to th garden Room. this was huge, with a large en-suite bathroom and walk in shower. There was also a private veranda. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good, with a lot of choice. The hotel is about twenty minutes walk from the main restaurants which was not a problem for us., but you can get a taxi for £2- 3.

Room Tip: If you can afford it the garden room is excellent, but it looks as if all the rooms are good.
