Our Accommodation

Our Guest Rooms

Comfortable Ensuite guest rooms

We have nine guest bedrooms at The Collingdale Guest House in Ilfracombe, Devon, six of which have stunning panoramic views over the harbour, with its quaint little chapel and Damien Hirst's statue Verity and the Nature Reserve of Hillsborough.  The other three rooms overlook the front of the house and the wooded area beyond. Our  balcony view rooms are very popular, as you can sit outside with your morning coffee or glass of wine in the evening and watch the comings and goings in the harbour. Rooms at the top of the house have vaulted ceilings and command the best views of the harbour, so if you don't mind a few steps it is worth the climb for the view.

All of our rooms at the Guest House in Ilfracombe are beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard with deep comfortable mattresses for a good night’s sleep, flat-screen TV with Freeview, plus a well-stocked beverage tray, complimentary toiletries and mineral water, big fluffy white bath towels and lots of thoughtful little extras! Free WiFi is available in all rooms.

Our larger family rooms cater for two adults and one child aged 8 years or above. Because of the layout of the guest house, unfortunately, we are not suitable for younger children or babies.

Please Note

The Collingdale was built in 1869, when en-suite bathrooms were not invented, so these were added over the years, making the best use of the space available and all have standard size shower enclosures.  So, whilst our rooms and ensuites are cosy and compact, we would hope that the stunning views, fantastic service and excellent breakfast more than compensate for this.

Please note, that our accommodation is spread over several floors and we do not have any ground floor bedrooms, so we may not be suitable for guests with restricted mobility as we do not have a lift.   If you would prefer a room on a lower floor please advise at the time of booking.

The Breakfast room is situated one floor down from reception.

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.”
