“Fantastic property with great views over part of Ilfracombe and the sea. Sit on the patio and admire the view with the cream tea supplied by the hosts, lots of goodies in a lovely wicker basket which was above and beyond! Plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses and cooking equipment. Large fridge freezer, washer, dryer and dishwasher. We found the bed very comfortable, not hard or too soft. Property was well cared for and clean. The owners were fab hosts, welcoming but unobtrusive, available if needed.Great location to travel around North Devon. The walk into town is downhill, return very steep, suggest a taxi!Super week!”

“Excellent property. Very clean and well equipped. Sea views wonderful. Owners very kind and helpful. Welcome hamper was really lovely. Heating was on and the property was very warm and cosy. Easy to walk to the harbour. Very steep hill back up to the property, but taxis are available. Harbour car park was free after 6pm when we stayed. Lovely theatre near the harbour. ”

“Farthings Nest has wonderful sea views being so high above sea level and a lovely enclosed garden. The property was really spacious, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There was a hamper waiting for us on arrival, milk and even a cream tea in the fridge! Such a thoughtful welcome surprise. We met the owner who is lovely. Just be aware the walk up from the town is very steep.”

“Location was on top of a rather steep hill so not perhaps suitable for those with any mobility issues. Walking into town was also very steep . After eating out we took taxis back, rather than face the hill!Property very good and you could eat meals in the garden overlooking the sea. Everything else very good.”
— Mr P, 21 June 2023
