Having just spent the Christmas week on Lundy Island, we were looking forward to spending the New Year in Ilfracombe and were blown away from the very minute we opened the front door of Wildercombe House.
Anne-Marie and Barry have lovingly restored this building and the care and attention to detail feels very personal indeed; they should be extremely proud of what they have achieved.
Our room was extremely comfortable and up there with some of best boutique hotels. Breakfast was excellent but again this is down to care and attention to detail. Two of us had the Eggs Benedict and one the poached haddock, all of which was faultless.
We spent the New Year's Eve with friends but enjoyed a lovely Prosecco in the bar before venturing out for the town celebrations. Those who enjoy craft beer should take a look at the range of local beer, Lundy's Gold comes highly recommended.
Breakfast the next morning set us all up for the day ahead and rounded off a perfect festive holiday. We hope to visit Lundy again in spring and will look to stay at Wildercombe before, after or maybe both. Wildercombe is by far the best place to stay in Ilfracombe and we would strongly recommend you take a look.
