Bertie and his family were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, lovely people.
We stayed in the medieval apartment on the ground floor, no noise whatsoever, great. It was one door down from the main guest house – so out your front door, past the guest house next door and into Ilfracombe House. Ilfracombe House had a seating area outside the front so as it was nice we sat there and had a drink and you could see the sea, it was in a great position – away from all the action but close enough to walk to it all.
The walks to the sea front were lovely, along the cliff top with lots of seating areas, well kept gardens and picnic areas, and the views were stunning of the sea. The apartment, although dated was clean and had everything you could want – cooker, fridge, washing machine and TV in the lounge and both bedrooms. A good size apartment. It was a lovely touch to find some fresh roses on the dining table – thank you. The breakfast was superb and the tables were set beautifully. Bertie was there to welcome us and even made our toast.
Self service – fresh orange, apple juice, tea, coffee – cereals, toast, jams, marmalade’s, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs (Bertie said he would make us poached or fried if we preferred) tomatoes, beans and hash browns. I’m sure there was more but I can’t remember. The atmosphere was totally relaxed thanks to Bertie. The only negative I have is that the front of the apartments outside (not the guest house), need a good clean and the area needs weeding. There were lots of cigarette ends and general untidiness, it wouldn’t take much to sort it out and would make a better first impression. But that wouldn’t stop me staying there again.
