Welcome to The Collingdale

Guest House, Ilfracombe, Devon

The Collingdale Guest House is an award winning, Ilfracombe Bed and Breakfast, offering affordable, quality accommodation which is perfect for your Devon holiday.  We are situated directly on the South West Coast Path in an elevated position with arguably the best panoramic views across the harbour,  Damien Hirst’s statue ‘Verity’ and the magnificent cliff top scenery of Hillsborough Nature Reserve. 

Ilfracombe is the perfect location from which to explore North Devon too being just a short drive from the Blue Flag Beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton sands or the picturesque fisherman's village of Clovelly.  We are also just a  20 minute drive from Exmoor National Park where a visit to Lynmouth and Lynton is a must.  

Why you should

stay at The Collingdale Guest House

We are just a few minutes’ walk to the beautiful historic harbour with its excellent selection of restaurants, cafés, shops and galleries and the ferry to Lundy Island. The town centre, Landmark Theatre and famous Tunnels Beaches are also within easy walking distance.

Beautifully furnished throughout, The Collingdale Guest House Ilfracombe has nine guest bedrooms, six of which have the stunning sea views, with two of our most popular rooms having balconies on which to sit and enjoy the splendid scenery.

Start the day with our delicious “Award-Winning” breakfast which is freshly cooked to order using local handmade sausages, extra thick cut bacon and Fenton Farm free range eggs.   We also have plenty of vegetarian and Vegan options available,  including our “Meat Free Full Devon” plus we can cater for special diets and offer dairy-free and gluten free options on request.  Or why not try something from the sea with kippers or locally caught natural smoked haddock served with a poached egg.

We pride ourselves on cleanliness and good service and offer a friendly, relaxed atmosphere which we trust will be perfect for your short break or holiday in Devon.

We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely home very soon, just give us a call for a chat or book securely online on this website where you are guaranteed to get the best rates.

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed warmly and felt immediately at home, relaxed and looked after. We thought the property was absolutely charming and the staff could not have been more attentive.
The property was extremely clean and the little thoughtful touches in our room did not go unnoticed, we had the best nights sleep we have had in a while in a big comfy bed. The view from our balcony was unmatched and sitting out in the morning with a coffee felt perfect.
Breakfast in the morning was delicious and plentiful with beautiful views over the harbour.
We look forward to returning to the Collingdale in the near future.
Excellent value for our money

May 2024

My partner and I had a fantastic week long stay. Sharon and Daryl were so welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout. Sharon knows the area very well and gave great recommendations for places and restaurants to visit which made our trip even more enjoyable. The guest house itself is spotless and so well cared for. We especially loved the little touches in the room such as fresh water each day, as well as tea/ coffee and biscuits. We stayed in the superior room which we would highly recommend as it had a balcony that looked onto the beautiful harbour. Breakfast each day was absolutely delicious, we would go as far as saying it’s the best we have ever had whilst staying away. A wonderful place to stay in Ilfracombe. We can’t wait to go back!


"Ideal location with sensational views. All staff were friendly and accommodating. Information of local 
interest pointed out as soon as we arrived - so that it gave us time to plan ahead. The breakfast was amazing - the best we have had for a very long time."


“We can highly recommend. From making reservations to our arrival & stay we felt so welcomed. A great experience. Daryl & Sharon are the perfect hosts & the b&b is a warm & welcoming environment. Spotlessly clean & stylish. Absolutely great breakfast with simply stunning views. To us it was home away from home. Given the opportunity we will be back!.”


“Absolutely wonderful our hosts were amazing couldn't do enough for us. Rooms were clean and fresh with wonderful sea views. Breakfast is out of this world. If you want nice clean comfort with a homely atmosphere then this is the place for you.”
