Epchris House is a relaxed family-run licensed guest house, nestled at the foot of the Torrs in the Wilder Valley, one of Ilfracombe’s most beautiful and tranquil locations.  Ilfracombe’s historic harbour, Damien Hirst’s Verity statue and the highly rated restaurants of picturesque Fore Street are just a 10-15 minute stroll and access to the dramatic South West Coast path is a mere 5 minute walk.

It is the oldest building in the Torrs dating back to 1831 and is set in 2 acres of stunning landscaped gardens, incorporating a sheltered sun terrace with far-reaching views from where you can enjoy an al fresco breakfast or evening drink.  There’s an on-site parking space for each room and Dogs are welcomed, as are children aged 12 and over, muddy walking boots and soggy wetsuits!

There is also a separate on-site PADI Dive Centre, so if you would like to book a scuba taster or refresher session, a PADI Open Water course or a trip to dive with the Seals at Lundy Island, please visit Easy Divers Website.

 Please note that the pool is unusually deep and for Health & Safety reasons we can only use it for diving training. Therefore it is no longer part of Epchris Guest House or available to guest house guests. Many thanks for your understanding

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Epchris House and please get in touch if you have any questions.
