      Excellent hosts. Have already started to improve the accommodation since taking over this year. Very nice bar and dining area and bedroom with original features. This place will only get better as they go.

      Chuck and Lewis go above and beyond the line of service. Offering valuable insight of North Devon, flexible support in all aspects of travel and comfort, are excellent cooks, hosts, and charming people overall. Loved just about everything except the tight parking lot. The parking spaces were not the most fat friendly. Good thing they are within walking distance of the harbor and boutique shops. Would love to visit again. I highly recommend The Earlsdale if staying anywhere near Ilfracombe.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      This is a lovely Victorian style building which has been altered and modernised to suit the purpose of a guest house. There are a few very minor cosmetic areas that can be improved on but the owners, Lewis and James have only been in the property a few months and are working their way through a plan of refurbishment. As they say, you can't do everything at once, and the few small things that need attention certainly don't detract from a pleasurable stay. Lewis and James are wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are absolutely wonderful too. We will certainly be back and we can't recommend this guest house highly enough. We also like the fact that it is for adults only and no pets are allowed. There are times and places where we just enjoy peace and quiet. Thanks so much guys.
