Cyclists are Welcome Here

Whether it is a one night stop, for going C2C on route 27 and 3, or a longer stay, ready to pootle around the lanes, you and your bike will be most welcome.  

Facilities and Services.

We offer a warm space in our hallway with heating to dry outdoor clothing and footwear. Bicycles can be stored in the barn adjacent to the B&B, where there is loads of space to lock bicycles to pillars. There is a tap and hose, near the men's / family shower for washing mud off bicycles, outside clothing, walking boots or surfboards .  
An emergency cycle and puncture repair kit is available in the hallway.

A first aid kit is available on request.

Food Arrangements.

Hot and cold drink making facilities are provided in the bedrooms. A fridge is available in the hallway, for all B&B guests to use.
We do not serve evening meals, but they can be purchased at Cook Island, which is about 1/2 mile away, up the hill, away from Ilfracombe.
An early breakfast can be ordered, from 7.00 am - 8.00 am. This will be a limited choice, and not the full menu. We must be notified the night before.
A packed lunch can be ordered the day before at an additional charge of £5 each. We also offer a flask filling service.

Group Bookings.

Depending on how many are in the group our system doesn't really change from individual bookings. The group leader will have given the names of all the group to us, and we will know who will be going together, and how many in each room. Singular or multiple sets of information can be sent to the leader, depending on numbers and criteria. In any event the first person to arrive must come to check in at the farm house and then we can discuss the estimated times of arrival for the rest of the group.
