Lovely, warming, welcoming; an absolute pleasure!

I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Devon with my girlfriend, we just wanted a relaxed couple of days out of the city and obviously with Christmas on the horizon I really didn't want to break the bank.

This place was absolutely perfect; not big but unbelievably cosy.

We were greeted at the door by Christine who straight away couldn't do enough for us but was in no way overbearing; once we had our key and the relevant information she left us to settle in, and at this BnB that was not difficult. The bedroom was excellently furnished, with plenty of lovely Devon touches, and the bed was so comfortable it was a struggle to leave the next morning. The breakfast was exactly what you needed to kick off the day; a pristine full English cooked on the aga with a just as impressive vegetarian option for my girlfriend, accompanied by fresh coffee, orange juice, toast, cereals and more. Would absolutely go again, but maybe when there's a bit more sun and a bit less wind!

Fabulous B&B

A girlfriend and I travelled to Ilfracombe to celebrate some friends wedding at the nearby Tunnels Beach.

I am so glad we stayed at this great little guest house. We were greeted by the owner and what a lovely lady she is. Instant welcoming feeling and were shown to our quaint, quiet, clean and fresh room. Our bedroom had a separate private bathroom which lead out onto our own private balcony with comfy chairs to relax on (and star gaze!) Free wifi with a good connection and great tea & coffee facilities. We were offered a choice of breakfast and swooped up the opportunity of a full English breakfast. Well portioned, well cooked and her homemade whiskey marmalade went down a treat. Although we were there for 3 nights, we didn't take advantage of the living room and Sky TV but worth a mention of that's your kinda thing. Great location, 3 minutes walk to Tunnels Beach, 5 minutes to the High Street and a 15 minute stroll to the harbour. Winner all round!. Thank you!. :)

Great accommodation, lovely hosts

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again.

The rooms were well presented and the bed very comfy. The hosts were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was really lovely and the waitress was very attentive.

Great Stay. Highly Recommended.

Our stay at Brookdales was an immediate hit.

Having been greeted at the door by our wonderful host, we were shown to the room, which was clean and the bathroom was equally spotless.

The bed was firm and comfortable. We both enjoyed a brilliant nights sleep. Breakfast was superb, with lots of choice on offer. Our breakfast was cooked to perfection.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay, I recommend Brookdales.

Excellent value B and B was just the ticket for us......

Our 1 night stay at Brookdales was just what we needed....

nice friendly welcome, and the house was conveniently located a short walk from the town and harbour.

Parking may be an issue in high season, though when we were there late march we found a spot in the road right outside. Our double bed was comfortable, room fairly clean and welcome tray with tea and coffee which I always like. Nice breakfast which was included in the price. Nice little touches like proper napkins, not paper ones. All in all an excellent value for money guest house, and yes, would stay there again.

Excellent value and presentation

The accomodation was excellent.

A friendly welcome and for the money you really could not fault it. The room was nicely furnished and had all you needed for a comfortable stay. Excellent shower room. A good nights sleep was had in a comfortable roomy bed with quality linen. Generous tea and coffe with real milk.
