    Many part of this town including its HIGH STREET are looking terribly run down and rough. So too some pubs ... I'm sure it will perk up in higher season but money needs to be spent on its appearance . The streets felt as safe as most places in Britain and some Bistros and cafes were delightful. Roads are narrow and some extremely vertiginous . Parking can be an issue in high season I guess.

    Ilfracombe is worth a visit and is probably better in the summer than when we visited. We preferred Woolacombe and Puttsborough beach is great for surfing. We walked around Baggy Point and saw some amazing views. Well worth a visit.

    There were some really lovely parts of Ilfracombe and some not so nice , like most towns . Most of the architecture is stunning with old and new together but some new don't fit in. The scenery on the coast is amazing with lots of craggy coves and you can walk along the South West Coast Path . There is a small harbour where a stunning Damien Hirst statue is of Verity ,Statue of Justice if I remember correctly Parts of Ilfracombe are quite steep but there are slopes and some roads on the flat. We ate Sunday lunch at the Thatched Inn , had Breakfast at the Lime Kiln Cafe down by a cove . We loved it.

    Lovely rugged coastline all still very natural.

    Lovely rugged coastline all still very natural. The town however was a little disappointing in terms of felt a bit run down and lacking in investment in some areas. Worth a visit altho not too long as I think more useful to use as a base to travel than a holiday in as wasn’t enough to offer.

    As we were attending a wedding it was a good location for us but probably not the right time of year for shopping etc as most of the shops were empty or closed down. I'm sure its much better in the summer!

    Ilfracombe town is a solid favourite of mine, boat trips, fish and chips by the harbour, walks, cream tea (hele corn mill). Watermouth Castle. Newly opened place to eat The Lime Kiln Cafe. Coastal walk to Hele. Chapel of St Nicholas

    Cairn House is perfectly situated for exploring North Devon. The room we stayed in was great - large, clean and comfy and the hosts Nick and Margaret were super friendly and welcoming. The Honesty Bar is a fab idea, we enjoyed a couple of drinks on the picnic bench in the front garden. The breakfasts were lovely, plenty of choice and were served really quick, meaning we could make an early start and the most of our days. We had a fab time in Ilfracombe and wouldn't hesitate in rebooking to stay at Cairn House.

    Everything! If I could give this hotel an 11 or 12 I would. It's truly exceptional. Run by a warm and engaging couple who deliver an outstanding service despite it being just the two of them. The breakfasts were wonderful and the place is immaculate. Great attention to detail with everything thought through. We loved Ilfracombe for its accessibility to the south coast trail, and the walk to Woolacombe is truly stunning! I would highly recommend this hotel, especially for keen walkers.

    I actually booked this for my daughter & son-in-law as a short break for their birthdays. Unfortunately my daughter fell on arrival in Ilfracombe ( before even getting to Acorn Lodge). The owners were so helpful, when she ended up on crutches / in medical boot after trip to A&E. Nothing was too much trouble. They loved the hotel, the breakfast ( including the veggie option) and location so close to the harbour. They couldn’t speak highly enough of it and would love to return one day.

    Everything. The stay, hotel, and hosts were perfect. I had a gorgeous room overlooking the harbour - so comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic - I'm vegan, (but my parent's aren't, & loved theirs too.) Quick, friendly responses to queries pre-arrival. The communal areas were gorgeous, clean, and welcoming. Ilfracombe itself is also gorgeous. Thank you!

    The location of the hotel is outstanding. The staff is welcoming and being and old property, it was having it old charm. The patio is right on the harbour and present a incredible view of pier and iconic places in Ilfracombe like Verity and St. Nicholas Chapel. The property is right in centre of village and it can not get better than this.

    The hotel is in a very good location for all the amenities in Ilfracombe. The breakfast was very good, freshly cooked and tasty. The owners were very attentive, nothing seemed to be too much trouble and they were very good with my husband who has many food allergies. They were always happy to help and worked so hard.
