“Lovely holiday home, hope to return some day”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Jo and her family have created a wonderful holiday home and we thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay there.

What I personally really liked about the property was that it was fresh and modern with all the staple (and some luxury) amenities to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.....it is however not so "showhome-like" to make you feel uncomfortable using any of it.

The hot tub was great and we enjoyed that on a couple of the better evenings we had.

We found the house v clean and tidy and was left a nice welcome basket which was a nice touch. The couple of minor queries/issues we had whilst we were there were dealt with v courteously and promply and couldnt have asked for more.

Just do be aware that the house is situated rather high up in the Ilfracombe hillside; I'd rather forgotten how hilly North Devon is having not visited since I was a child and getting to and from town whilst short in distance did prove rather a workout! Also the driveway access can prove quite tricky even for a confident driver....definitely do not try to reverse down or up the slope to get in or out as you will almost certainly come a cropper!

If we ever find ourselves looking to visit the Ilfracombe area I will be sure to contact Jo as would relish the oportunity to stay here again.

“Splendid views, home comforts, roomy, spa pool is the cherry on the cake!”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have a had a lovely week in Devon, reuniting family from around the globe! The 3 shower rooms made mornings easier and the conservatory meant we could spread out on rainy days. Having 3 TVs to choose from was a bonus as was the efficient BBQ. We walked into Ilfracombe a lot and ate at the Thatch pub which was worth a visit as was Damien Hirst's bar/ restaurant ! We made use of the wet suits in the garage and would have taken the kayak out had we had a roof rack! Croyde bay remains a lovely beach to surf on providing you take care and Lynton is worth a visit! Having Tesco up the road was very handy and I think we may have boosted their profits for 2015.
We will seriously consider returning to the Hideaway, maybe out of season next time!

“Relaxing break with all the comforts of home”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Hideaway was (is) a lovely home away from home with all needs catered for. We even had jam, cream and scones and a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival which was a real treat!
The decor and the standard of finish was perfect. We even had an extra room that we weren't expecting. Our teenage daughters spent most of their time in the jacuzzi and we would either join them, or sit in the conservatory watching the sun go down with a glass of wine ... bliss.

We went to the beach at Woolacombe a couple of times and took the wetsuits and surf board that were in the garage - brilliant!

The harbour with Verity and all the eateries was just a short walk down the hill, although it became a rather long walk back up again at the end of the evening!

If I had a write a negative it would be that Ilfracombe doesn't have a lot to offer teenagers, however ours were happy with the hot tub!

All in all it was a very relaxing break and I would definitely recommend The Hideaway. Thank you to the owners for putting the extra thought into the holiday experience.

“Total relaxation from the start”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We spent a wonderful break at the Hideaway - the bungalow is extremely well equipped and has been decorated to a very high standard throughout. There was plenty of space for six of us to stay comfortably. The bathroom and two ensuites are very modern, well finished and clean. Everyone enjoyed the use of the hottub / bbq.in the evening as the weather was great during our stay. Our teenagers found plenty to do as Woolacombe is nearby - they went surfing every day and it was safe enough for them to walk into Ilfracombe alone at night to the amusements. The harbour area is great for eating out and we even spotted a dolphin one evening! We will definitely be rebooking the Hideaway again.
