Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

My husband whisked me away for the night for our anniversary. Our first night away with our baby. Ann-Marie was so helpful. We had a lovely big room with a fabulous view, plenty of room for the travel cot which was provided. We were even provided with a baby bath and nightlight. The welcome folder mentioned that a monitor and babysitting services were also available although we didn't use these. The bed was lovely and big and comfy, the bathroom was very luxurious with lovely smelliest and big soft bathrobes. The only 2 downsides to the room was that the sofa and chairs creaked when you sat on them and the tele being on to the side of the bed rather than facing the foot of the bed. The chairs had me panicking I'd wake my daughter up if I sat in them. Breakfast was lovely and a high chair was provided. My daughter has only just started on solids but the range of food available meant that she could have a very small amount of a variety of suitable things.

Wildercombe House offers everything you could possible wish for on your holiday. The rooms are fantastic, clean and spacious and your are made to feel very welcome by Anne and Barry, the breakfast you get in the morning sets you up nicely for the day. The location is perfect for all those days out around the coast and North Devon. Thanks for the lovely break.

I can not recommend this guest house enough!
Super friendly owners and staff! Lovely wheelchair accessible rooms. All you need when you are a wheelchair user without it feeling specially adapted. Breakfast was superb and a lovely title bar!

This is isn't just a newly refurbished hotel. It is fitted out to the highest quality, far superior to any of the more popular hotel chains. Solid oak furniture adorns all rooms including the bedrooms and has been tastefully done. The service is excellent and Ann-Marie and Barry certainly add that personal touch. Great value for money and I’d recommend Wildercombe House to anyone.

I booked in two of my staff for a one night stay last month after finding this venue online.
I had to give the venue as call as I required an early breakfast for the both of them and no other venue was prepared to offer this service.

I spoke with Anne-Marie personally and explained what i required and she was more than happy to help me. She arranged breakfast for my guys who were on a very early start that morning.

Our other minor problem was that we were arriving in a LWB/High top van and thus would take up extra room in the car park. This was also no problem. She arranged for two reserved parking spaces with no extra charge ! Now thats service!

Food was both excellent and plentiful. All of the staff of site were friendly and nothing was "no trouble at all".

The venue was peaceful and very very clean and tidy, the rooms were spotless which shows real care and attention by the staff.

This venue is a real Gem, staff brilliant and worth every penny.

Highly recommended and will certainly return. Thanks so much
