We stayed at this B & B for a night as part of our 2 week UK tour. Our hosts David and Marianna Holdsworth were extremely friendly and welcoming. Our room was decorated around the 1920's film era and was spotlessly clean and very large. Our bed was huge and very comfortable, with two large armchairs to take in the...

David and Marianna are excellent hosts. The choice for breakfast is excellent and endless. The food was cooked to perfection. Loved the ' themed ' rooms, comfy and spacious. Marianna and David supply lots of information about the area, walks, bus timetables etc., we wish them well in the future.

Having a few days free, and having always wanted to visit Lundy (well worth it) I needed a cheap place to stay with parking as close as poss to the ferry terminal. Coastal Fringes fitted the bill and was just marvelous, a bit of a time warp back to the days of immaculate Guest Houses, charmingly and individually presented with...

We read reviews for this guest house and noted that they scored 100%. I was a bit dubious as the reviews didn't date back that far but even the recent ones reported favourably so we booked for several days. What a surprise! The reviews were spot-on. The property lays just outside Ilfracombe town centre in easy walking distance. The exterior...

A memorable experience for the right reasons: Spottlessly clean and with such gracious attention from the Hostess, I was reminded of the standards of a bygone era, in keeping with the 'silver screen' theme of Coastal Fringes! The room was well appointed with, en suite with seperate shower room, large double bed, sitting room style seating and modern tv and...

We booked in for three nights as part of our attempt to complete more of the SWCP. The house had a very individual style reflecting the hosts love of glamour and the B & W era of film. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean and quite stylish. The bathroom was newly renovated and it was a joy to...
