    Great B&B

    Rocky Cove is a friendly B&B in the centre of Ilfracombe, clean, comfortable and a very good breakfast. Rooms are up to date and fully equipped.

    Outstanding accommodation in Ilfracombe

    Excellent communication before we arrived put us at ease. We were walking along the South West Coast Path from Coombe Martin to Woolacombe and as we passed through Ilfracombe Jonah and Nicki were extremely accommodating to us, allowing us an early check in, so that we could drop off our backpacks before continuing our walk along the South West Coast Path for the day. Our room was well appointed with a luxurious free standing bath and double shower, which was much appreciated after our long walk. The icing on the cake was Jonah’s home-made fudge given to us before we left, after a very tasty and freshly cooked breakfast. We can not recommend The Rocky Cove highly enough.

    Amazing B&B and great location

    One of the best B&Bs we've stayed in. Our room was elegant and cosy. Breakfast was great and the hosts Nicki and Jonah were lovely. This was our first time in Ilfracombe and it was nicer than we had expected. Wish we'd stayed there longer. We will definitely be back.
