“Fantastic stay at Primrose House”
Reviewed 16 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a great stay at Primrose House in August. The accommodation was everything we'd hope for and more and it's in a great location for town and also for exploring the area. This was our first experience of booking through Tripadvisor so we were a little wary but Caroline is a fab host who made everything so easy for us, especially the lovely welcome of milk and biscuits!

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this accommodation if you're visiting Ilfracoombe.

“The best ever holiday home ☺”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Primrose house in ilfracombe was a lovely place to stay with our family. It was well equipped with modern amenities and had a welcome pack of groceries. All the rooms were spotless and spacious with 2 large bathrooms​. Altogether the house is maintained to an extremely high standard and we would recommend it to others.also it's within 15 minutes walk to the harbour and 10 minutes walk to the shops.

“A fantastic play to stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This lovely house lived up to all expectation and a welcome pack on our arrival was a special touch. There is a great view of the Torrs from the front and it is in an ideal location both for access to the town and the beautiful surrounding area.

The rooms are spacious and it was ideal for our large group of mixed age range. There is also an enclosed outdoor space with barbecue which is very useful for outdoor eating and fortunately the weather was very kind to us so we were able to make much use of this. A lot of thought has gone into what the holidaymaker might need for their stay and so we found the kitchen to be very well equipped and children are catered for with books, DVDs and games.

The stay at Primrose house was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thank you Caroline

A lovely house well kept, views looking over hills.
we went for our daughters wedding at the tunnels, a wonderful wedding venue looking over the sea. The beaches are black sand but that doesn't stop you having fun and there are swimming pools in the rocks when the tide is out, beautiful and pictorial . The house we stayed in has everything provided from high chair to all kitchen needs including t' towels and all towels for showering, we love to 2 big baths also great for after being out all day a nice long laze in the bath but the showers are brilliant too. Basically if you think you might need something you most probably won't because it will be there. Good size kitchen diner , large lounge, loads of videos grown up ones and children's. top floor is like a private on-sweet as bedroom door next to big bathroom and bunk beds for the kids next to bedroom.

“Look no further - perfect house!”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great location, clean, fresh flowers on arrival, fresh linen.

Loads of space and fully equipped, info files really well laid out so all questions answered.

We were a mixed family from 12 years old to 82 and everyone was happy.

Ilfracombe is a great town to base your stay - walked into town for great restaurants £££££ and £!
