Perfect place for a overnight stop while cycling the Devon Coast to Coast route from Ilfracombe to Plymouth. The en-suite family room was basic but clean and comfortable and the staff were all friendly and helpful. We walked into town for our evening meal but...More

Many thanks for your feedback. We agree that the Devon Coast to Coast cycle ride is fabulous. It's a great challenge to attempt this ride and we often have cyclists using our facilities in both directions, during the July/August period and week-ends between May and...More
