“Wonderful”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

A wonderful guest house very welcoming, clean and in a perfect location with an excellent host (Sharon) and the breakfast was top class, I take it Daryl is the chef!
Lots of information for your visit supplied in the rooms or in the lounge area in the guest house.
I will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: The top rooms had fantastic views but I found them rather small so good for a couple of days only.

We are 4 keen walkers who returned to Ilfracombe for the second year in a row, due to the great location and superb B & B run by Sharon & Daryl. We were booked into seaview rooms which were lovely and clean and quiet. Breakfasts were great too.
Sharon is a great hostess and nothing was too much trouble. She was always ready to give advice when asked and has a great knowledge of the local area and places to eat.

4 nights stop with the wife and two daughters 12yrs and 10 yrs. This was our second stop and we will undoubtedly return. The place has a lovely feel and Sharron and Daryl are welcoming and helpful. The family room is ideal and the place is clean and ideally located looking out over the harbour. It's a few minutes walk to the harbour, restaurants and bars which is ideal if you want somewhere where you don't have to consider driving. Ilfracombe itself is located nicely if like us you enjoy a trip to Croyde bay for bodyboarding, Woolacombe for the beach, Paracombe for the beech and rockpooling. a little further a field to Lynton/lynmouth and Clovelly. A lovely stop yet again. Oh and the breakfasts are renowned.

With 4 other business travelers from Florida we all found this to be a welcome change from the usual sterile hotel environment. Sharon was just outstanding in her helpfulness and while we never met Daryl we certainly enjoyed those "Full Devon" breakfasts. The attention to detail is just amazing with the smell of fresh flowers filling the whole house. The history of the Collingdale is fascinating and it was very enjoyable to see how the past has been tastefully retained along with the latest in modern convenience. Highly recommended for anyone especially if visiting one of the local companies and a must if visiting the area on vacation.

Room Tip: South side have outstanding views.
