Score Valley Country House offers the personal service of a guest house with the tranquillity, space and comfort of a country house hotel. This splendid 18th century residence holds pride of place with commanding views over this secluded unspoiled valley, which has hardly changed over the years. The narrow lane leading to the circular drive ensures that the front of Score Valley Country House has remained one of Ilfracombe’s best kept secrets.

With ample parking for all our guests we believe we can offer you a peaceful undisturbed holiday or short break and a perfect base from which to explore the wonders of Exmoor or North Devon’s finest sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands. Although we appear to be in the middle of the countryside it is only a pleasant 20 minute walk from the hotel to Ilfracombe with its beautiful working harbour, shops, restaurants, Tunnels Beaches and other attractions.

We have eight bedrooms which have been individually furnished with king and super king sized beds, retaining many of the period features including some of the original fireplaces. Five of these rooms can be made up with twin beds (please check availability on booking). We also have a spacious single room for solo travellers. All bedrooms are fully en-suite, except one which has private facilities, and are equipped with generous hospitality trays, towels and toiletries, colour TV, shaver points and heated towel rails.

Free wireless broadband Internet access is available in all rooms.

As a husband and wife team we take pride in the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of the hotel and in ensuring that after a good night’s sleep you will be set up for the day with a hearty breakfast. Breakfasts are freshly prepared to order using locally sourced produce wherever possible, with a choice of either an English breakfast or a selection from our daily menu. Special dietary requirements can also be catered for - please call us in advance if you have particular needs.

In addition to beach activities North Devon has long been an all year round centre for country based pursuits, with golf, fishing, walking, horse riding, clay shooting, paintballing, quad biking, coasteering and much more superbly catered for. Ilfracombe is also rapidly becoming recognised as the perfect stunning backdrop for beach weddings. If you are looking for wedding accommodation for yourselves or your guests we would be pleased to offer either bed and breakfast or exclusive use of the whole hotel for your party.

Score Valley provides the ideal base for your North Devon holiday or activity, and we welcome guests for overnight stays, short breaks and holidays.
