Epchris House is a relaxed dog-friendly licensed guest house with parking, welcoming children aged 10+ set in over an acre of beautiful gardens in a peaceful part of Ilfracombe, yet only 5 minutes walk to the South West Coast Path and Tunnels Beaches or a 10 minute stroll into town. Our sun terrace offers unbeatable views and is a lovely place to enjoy an outdoor breakfast, our complimentary afternoon tea and homemade cake or drinks from our bar.

We took over Epchris House in Spring 2021 and wanted to create an informal, modern and relaxing B&B experience, so we moved away from the old-fashioned formal dining room breakfast and replaced it with room service breakfasts, so you can enjoy greater privacy, with no need to rush to get ready to eat downstairs. Our generous sized rooms all have space for a dining table and chairs, so you can enjoy breakfast in your pyjamas if you fancy it, or on sunny days you are welcome to sit outside and take breakfast on the sun terrace, the choice is yours!

We have turned our breakfast room into a lovely bar, lounge and games room – The Lundy Lounge – where you can sit and relax, flick through a book from our library or enjoy a game of Pool, a round of table tennis or choose from a selection of board games.

We also run Easy Divers, a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre offering scuba tasters, PADI training courses and trips to dive with the Seals at Lundy Island. If you’d like to book a diving activity during your stay, please visit Easy Divers.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Epchris House.


Lovely 3 Night Break – We have just spent 3 nights at Epchris House what a delight. Cath and the team have everything down to a fine art. Nicely decorated and clean rooms, comfy bed and big white fluffy towels. Breakfast was delicious and a nice touch being served in your room, we didn’t get to eat on the terrace as the weather wasn’t great, the garden is lovely to look at whilst you are eating breakfast.


Delightful – We have just returned from a six night stay at Epchris House. We received a very warm welcome from Cath, the owner, who showed us to our delightful room which was spotlessly clean and had excellent facilities including a mini fridge that contained (fresh) milk and complimentary bottles of mineral water. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfasts were served to our room and were delicious and made from top quality ingredients. A hamper supplies your first preselected course which is delivered to your door followed by your preselected freshly cooked and piping hot breakfast at your chosen time slot. There is plenty of choice. There is a large lounge downstairs with a well stocked honesty bar and a table tennis table. Books and games are also available
