    Historical Traveler Reviews Norbury House Hotel Ilfracombe

    Loved it!


    Paula and Adam are fabulous hosts who made the stress of London simply drift away, they even let us take Bovril their labrador/newfoundland cross for a lovely walk on the beach Saturday afternoon followed by tea, cake, wine and beer - perfect!

    Paula really has the personal touch and its like going to your best friends place for the weekend, having people to stay is Paula's speciality subject - something so rare to find at so many hotels, you actually feel incredibly welcome!

    Breakfast at Norbury House was delicious, you can walk into town and have a great meal at Damien Hirsts place or jump in the car and visit the beautiful countryside. Paula and Adam can recommend great places to visit, some of the girls went to spa, horse riding and the boys took to the quad bikes.

    I can't recommend it highly enough, give yourselves a treat, if you go give my love to Bovril!

    Loved everything!


    If your looking for somewhere to stay in and around devon/ilfracombe, I highly recommend Norbury House. It's without doubt the best place we have ever stayed. Our room was amazing, with beautiful views overlooking the sea and the gardens. Our host, Paula, was incredibly friendly, helpful, and made us feel very at home. The coastal path is a 5 minute walk away and the 10 minutes to the town/harbour. We definately intend on returning to Norbury house in the future as we enjoyed our stay so much!We especially loved the owners dog...Bovril!! Me and Nathan would love to thank paula for a lovely stay :)

    Seaside and Country Coolness!


    We were in the search for fresh air, sea and have not been disappointed by Paula, Adam!

    Though Ilfracombe is not St Tropez, it certainly has a lot potential as a very suitable alternative for a long weekend less crowded than the beaches south of London.

    Being so close to Woolacombe as a beach haven is a great plus.

    Also we only have praise for the personally lovingly cooked breakfasts by Paula.

    We found a cool hangout for our future seaside trips.

    We wish Paula and Adam all the success they deserve in their venture!!!

    Fab Stay at Norbory House


    We have just come back from a wonderful weekend stay in Devon. We stayed at Norbury Hose and it was just fabulous!

    Paula & Adam, the owners are extremely guest friendly and you feel welcome before you even arrive. Breakfast was lovely and the whole service 5-STAR! The hotel is superbly decorated and the' thinking corner' and the slot machine are brilliant!

    The hotel is located near the sea and there is a very easy acces to the forest and the walking pads along the sea front. The views are magnificent. The town offers lots of nice wonderful restaurants and shops, so you don't have to go far.

    Really fantastic place for a nice weekend away!

    Fantastic stay - thanks


    We had a fantastic stay, thanks primarily to the warm hospitality of Adam & Paula.

    The Norbury is a cut above other B&Bs we have stayed in. It modern, yet relaxed. They were very welcoming to our family (incl 2 children - 7 years & 10 months old), and made to feel at home.

    Our room was very clean and newly decorated. Breakfast was great too - all locally sourced produce, served promptly with a smile.

    Really would recommend Norbury House to anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

    Loved the chilled atmosphere and the breakfast


    This hotel is really sweet - not your traditional grotty seaside B&B where you are ushered straight to your room and not allowed to show your face until breakfast time. Its got a lovely living room wtih a bar where we had drinks before going out and a conversatory that overlooks the town. Bedrooms were super comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. I would definitely stay here again - in fact i am staying here again in 2 weeks time and am looking forward to it!

    I came across Oscar


    We went to Norbury House with my partner and two nephews for a long weekend. We had the family room which was fantastic as I could keep a close eye on the two boys. Paula was fantastic, she organised so many activities for the kids and myself, they included:- Mackrel fishing, quad biking and horse riding, not to mention all the information about the wildlife park and beaches in and around the area.

    The hotel was really comfortable with the great idea of an honesty bar. The bedroom we stayed in had everything you could possible need, and the bed was super comfortable. The full English breakfast has everything you could imagine from a great quality hotel. This B&B is the very best I have come across in all my travels and I wish the owners Paula and Adam the very best with their business.

    A little gem


    Paula and Adam have certainly taken Norbury House and made it their own, from the stylish lounge to the faultless hospitality this hotel HAS to be stayed in.

    I look forward to spending many more happy stays at Norbury House - you would be fools to miss out!

    Really smashing


    friendly proprietor, great breakfast, lovely room...what more could you want, we'll be back.

    Lovely Guest House


    We stayed here in July and loved it. The owners were really friendly and greeted us with a pot of tea on arrival.

    The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The bathroom was very clean and had decent complimentary shower gel, shampoo etc.

    Breakfast was great and well worth the money - notting was too much trouble.

    The Norbury House Hotel is up a hill a little way out of the centre of Ilfracombe but we enjoyed the walk into town.

    There is parking at the hotel but can be difficult to part as it is on an angle up a slope - suggest parking on the road.

    The hotel has a bar and it was not too much trouble to request some drinks on the terrace outside.

    We will definately go back.

Slate entryways were worn just like the wood entryway at the Ellingson homestead. She has 2 daughters 15 years younger than mine. The Dunstaple Rum & Raisin ice cream was superb.

    Setting off early from the farm we headed down the tiny country lanes, getting a little lost through some fields and experiencing some very wet feet from forging our own route through long grass. We found the woodland we were looking for and made our way through that and out to the coast.

    From here we followed the coast path along, taking in plenty of rewarding views until we got to Hartland Point. ...
