Reviewed 4 July 2014

Stayed here 1st July 2014 for 2 nights.
Beautiful house with loads of lovely features. Beautiful bedroom overlooking the gardens and sea views we had a modern shower en-suite with a range of toiletries. Bedroom had drink making facilities, tv and DAB RADIO.
We had such a warm welcome and our hosts made us feel very welcome. Thank you for all your walking and eating advice.
The B & B is a 10 minute stroll into Ilfracombe harbour. The Old THatch pub is less than 2 minutes away.

Highly recommended

Room Tip: We had room 6 - king size bed for the price of a double

This is the second time we have had the pleasure of staying here, both times in June, and the weather has been wonderful. Only for one night as we were here on business.
The overall stay was quite frankly superb. We would not even attempt to stay anywhere else on our return.
The rooms are big and spacious and most ( I think) incorporate a sofa which is a nice touch rather than sitting on the bed or one of those hard chairs that you so often find.
The ensuites have all been refurbished to a very high standard and are spotlessly clean All with large white fluffy towels. Owners are friendly and polite and cant do enough for you.
The breakfasts are superb , good choice and well cooked with quality ingredients. Bread is brown grain and freshly baked not out of a cellophane bag!!
The views are wonderful and its only a very short walk down to the harbour or there is the thatched cottage which does ( I understand ) good food.
It has plenty of parking . If you are like us and want some peace and quiet in a hillside setting away from the noise this is for you.
I understand that this is an ongoing project and I really wish you every success as you move forward with this . Hopefully as we said will return next June

Fantastic accommodation, location & friendly efficient owners with superb attention to detail - highly recommended. Our bedroom huge, really comfy super king bed, everywhere spotlessly clean, lovely new large shower. Breakfast was superb and the sausage/bacon especially delicious. We were totally spoilt and well looked after, there was even cake on our arrival and for our journey home - lovely touch. The period house has lots of character (photos don't do it justice) and all recently decorate in a classy chic style and even easy walking distance (3mins) to town. We are very fussy customers and this ticked all our boxes, even towels soft and fluffy. We would highly recommend Laston House for B&B or even to hire the whole house which has everything for a great holiday. Kitchen is well equipped and lovely to cook in with new cupboards and appliances. Garden pretty and views stunning!

Room Tip: All rooms are well appointed, decorated and luxurious - my favourite is the room with the super king...

We stayed at Laston House in May and hired it for a self catering holiday. We had four generations stay in the wonderfully decorated bedrooms all with en suites. We made good use of the grand living room and enjoyed a BBQ twice during our stay. Abigail & Greg were good landlords, enabling us to enjoy our privacy, but knowing they were close to hand if anything was needed. I would recommend Laston House for a large group wishing to meet up. Another bonus was having a very good pub at the bottom of the drive!

Fanatic weekend at Laston hotel. Owners went out of their way to make us welcome and even got me soya milk for the bedroom and spread for breakfast as I have dairy allergies. Wonderful building, great food and outstanding hospitality . Great location and views, very clean and great value for money. Thank you!!!

I booked Laston House for 15 of my friends self catering, I thought it would be nice but actually the pictures don't really capture how AMAZING the place is. Every single room was lovely, fresh, digital radios which we loved. I had also miscounted how many friends I was bringing (ooops) and so we were one bed down, which I thought...we could just share. But actually one call and the owner was straight back round...setting up another bed, no problems. We also had fresh bread, eggs and a delicious Lemon Drizzle cake waiting for us.
The views are stunning and just a short walk to the harbour.

I can say that ALL 15 oh hang on 16!!! (keep getting that wrong) LOVED the weekend and its is mainly due to this house/location and how friendly the owners were. I will be back probably this year and im certain most of the others will too. Incredible value for money.

Looking at a few of the previous reviews I was expecting a nice but slightly shabby place. But not AT ALL. There isn't anything any of us would change...

We've stayed at the Laston 3 times now. The latest being with our little daughter. Every effort is made to put you in the holiday mood. Hospitality is second to none. The rooms are extremely good value for money, breakfast is fit for a king with a ample selection and the location I central to anywhere practically.
