An invitation from David and Marianna to relax smoke free, in their delightful Victorian Bed and Breakfast in Ilfracombe, on Glorious Devon´s Ocean Coast. We are pleasantly situated near lovely Bicclescombe Park and The Cairn Nature Reserve. We are the nearest B & B, by some distance (with its own car park) on St Brannock´s Road, to the town centre, with it´s restaurants, pubs and tearooms approximately five minutes level walk from Coastal Fringes. We are also only about ten minutes walk to the seafront and the famous Tunnels Beaches. The historic harbour and the Damien Hirst statue of Verity are only just a short stroll further on. Coastal Fringes is the starting and finishing point for a number of delightful coastal and inland scenic walks. We are a most suitable venue for people who decide to use public transport. The bus stop is right outside the entrance of our car park. A bus that connects with the train at Barnstaple also stops there.

The minute you enter "Coastal Fringes", after parking your car in our private car park, right outside our from door, you are made to feel welcome and at home. We combine modern comforts and facilities with hospitality of a bygone age. Nothing is too much trouble.

Coastal Fringes Bed and Breakfast is different and special. There are original architectural features and all the furniture and fittings have been carefully chosen to show the house to its best advantage. It is a delightful blend of traditional, English décor with a contemporary twist.

We have three delightful, individually designed double bedrooms, which are appointed with quality furnishings and fittings, chosen with our guests comfort in mind. Each room has central heating, thirty-two inch televisions with Freeview and DVD players, clock radio, hairdryer, trouser press, beverage making facilities and other thoughtful little extras, like homemade biscuits and glossy magazines. Access to your room is unrestricted. You can come and go as you please. All bedrooms are fully en-suite, the bath/shower rooms have opening windows not just extractor fans. Our Joan Fontaine Room is a lovely, large, dual aspect room with a large lounge area along with a good sized bathroom with toilet, washbasin, bath and separate double walk in shower. Our Gene Tierney Room has a contemporary design with two large dual aspect bay windows, one giving lovely views across to The Cairn and the Roundhouse. This room has a shower, toilet and washbasin. Our Ann Harding Room has a large bath with electric shower over it, a toilet and washbasin. The room is presented in a traditional style and has just been refurbished.

Wake up to a tasty, locally sourced homemade breakfast with plenty of tempting choices. A full spread, designed to see you through the day ahead. Vegetarians, Vegans and those on special diets are catered for. Prior notice would be appreciated if possible.

With our love and lifelong knowledge of the area, we are happy to help you to get the most out of your visit to out beautiful corner of the World.

With regret, we do not cater for babies, minors or pets, including dogs. Strictly no smoking allowed.
