“Fantastic accommodation to accompany a fantastic holiday!”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were a group of 6 adults and 2 children (2years and 10 months old) and the accommodation was excellent. We had a lovely stay. Fantastic views and lovely walk into Ilfracombe. The walk up the hill past the church kept us fit for the most part of the week as well as the stairs (we stayed on the top floor).

Well equipped kitchen (just needs a rolling pin and a lasagne type dish ; ) ) nice that the little things were included (hand soap, cloths, tea towels etc....)

Lovely to be greeted by some flowers, milk, bread and biscuits - nice touch. Our eldest daughter locked herself in the bathroom one day! All the neighbours were very helpful with the offer of ladders and taking the door off but in the end she managed to unlock the door!

We had a weeks stay and would recommend: woolacombe beach, croyde beach (weather permitting!) and the big sheep (for kids).

If you get chance for a meal out....Take Thyme (fish restaurant) is very nice.

Thanks for your feedback and i'm glad that you enjoyed your stay at Primrose House and it's always helpful to get visitor suggestions for improvement and i'll arrange for these to be added to the kitchen utensils.
I'll also add some detail into the house book re the bathroom lock to make other parents aware.
Thanks Caroline

“Beautiful Property”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Spacious, clean, very well presented house with all mod cons. We all loved it (4 adults, 5 teenagers & 3 dogs) and the week flew by. The variety of rooms suited us well, the bathrooms were surprising large and the front room was easily big enough for us all to be in together. Local dog friendly beaches are great and we all had a great time.
