We were truly amazed about the quality of our stay at West Down. Brenda and Roger have created a superb holiday experience. The rooms are superbly fitted out, the welcome was the best we have had in a very long time. Brenda and Roger have created a unique holiday experience that ensured we were all included in the party atmosphere.

Room Tip: All are excellent, two on ground floor, two with stair access.

Our second visit to West Down. This time we took a friend as well. Brenda and Roger are fantastic hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Brenda always provides lovely food and Roger provides the laughter. Room was spotless with everything you could possibly need for your holiday. We can't wait to return.

Our first stay here and we found the room (Swallow) well adapted for my wife who has limited mobility.
We had a delightful time, very relaxing location and atmosphere with plenty of opportunity to photograph birds feeding.
A convenient location for discovering the delights of North Devon. Brenda and Roger are excellent hosts.

We have had three visits all brilliant. The food is really good and Brenda and Roger are such great hosts. We will be going again but must try out a different time of the year. Hopefully we will be able to sit out in the garden and enjoy the lovely view.

We had been to Ilfracombe visiting relations and wanted a two night stop over in the Chittlehampton area to catch up with friends staying there for a week. I found West Down on the Internet and my what a find!! We stayed in the annex - a lovely room and Brenda had thought of everything. Spotlessly clean and so...... Comfy. The breakfasts were amazing and all in all a great find. We shall certainly be back.

Room Tip: The annex is perfect for families

We have been coming for 14 years and this was the best holiday yet. Brenda's food is always good but she tried out some new recipes this year and they were even better than usual.
We had our 3 year old granddaughter with us and there was another young child and Amy did a wonderful Egg Hunt for them and the conservatory was decorated by the Easter Bunny!
This really is a family friendly place and the whole family join in to make guests welcome even the grandchildren.
Even the weather was good if cold. Can't wait to go back. Thankyou Brenda and Roger and all the family.

Room Tip: The outside rooms are best for guests with limited mobility but they are all great.
