Reviews - Score Valley Country House Hotel

2Self Classified Guest House Ratings explained
Off St Brannocks Road, Score Valley, , Ilfracombe, EX34 8NA
In a peaceful, secluded valley between Ilfracombe and Woolacombe hidden from the road behind a band of tall trees, this splendid 18th-century country house is surrounded by gardens, woodland and streams with plenty of free parking. An ideal location for enjoying the vast, sandy beaches of North Devon's Golden Coast or exploring the wonders of Exmoor. The hotel has spacious, well equipped rooms individually furnished with generous hospitality trays many of the rooms retaining their original period features. We take pride in the relaxed, friendly atmosphere of our family run hotel. Our breakfasts are freshly prepared to order using local ingredients and we are able to offer a choice for vegetarians also, with prior notice, we will try to cater for other special dietary requirements. The hotel is licensed so you are most welcome to unwind in the evenings in our comfortable Bar where in the winter months you will find a roaring log fire. Alternatively you could take your drinks downstairs to our Games Room and enjoy a game of Darts, Pool or try your hand at traditional Bar Billiards or Shove Ha'penny. Remarkably all of this is only a pleasant 20 minute walk from Ilfracombe with its beautiful harbour, shops, Landmark Theatre and other attractions. The walk down the lane follows the stream as it makes its way through Ilfracombe's awarding winning Bicclescombe Park. The hotel is also adjacent to an entrance to the Cairn Nature Reserve which is an enjoyable walk offering spectacular views across Ilfracombe and over the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coast. There is much to do in North Devon in all seasons so the hotel is open all year round to enable guests to enjoy the many attractions or golf, walking, surfing or shooting breaks. If this is your first trip to North Devon be sure to make time to visit Clovelly, Lynton and Lynmouth, Dunster or to take a boat to Devon's own Atlantic Island Lundy. There are also a number of beautiful gardens most notably RHS Rosemoor.

good news and bad news
Good and bad. We stayed in Mid December.
Good: Nice sized room (we got tthe largest room with a big bathroom for £84). Quality of food at breakfast. was good.
BAD: FREEZING! no heating on in the whole house. The house and rooms were literally below freezing. Each room just has a small electric radiator. No other rooms in the house were heated, Advertised 'Open Fireplaces' aren't they are closed off. Advertised 'Roaring fire in winter' not lit, so 'games room / bar' was unusable as it was below zero. Breakfast room icy cold and unheated. Complained to owner who laughed. Complained more and he kept laughing more. Told me they cant get gas heating in the valley. Would not reccomend.
