Norbury House offers stylish bed and breakfast accommodation in Ilfracombe, North Devon. This lovingly restored Victorian Gentleman’s residence is situated on Torrs Park overlooking the town and sea.
Now transformed to provide AA 4-Star contemporary B & B in Ilfracombe, it is not only the panoramic views over the North Devon countryside, proximity to the stunning coastal walks or the 10 minute stroll to the picturesque harbour, that makes Norbury House the place to stay.
Adam and Paula take great pleasure in welcoming all their guests with an old fashioned personal service that reflects the style of the property. The relaxed, friendly and natural atmosphere lends itself to the extra "boutique" touches that make a visit to Norbury House unique, whether it’s helping yourself to a drink from the licensed cocktail bar, tea and biscuits in the lounge or meeting Bovril, the friendly Labrador.

“One of the best hotels and B&Bs in North Devon Uphill from the harbour, Ilfracombe’s Torrs Park area is the posh part of town; all grand Victorian villas and so-called gentlemen’s residences, harking back to grander days. Lately, it’s become a little enclave of boutique B&Bs, most of them run by down-from-London professionals doing the classic lifestyle change. Norbury House is the boho option; there’s a touch of Brighton about the retro-metro decor, the vintage cocktail bar in the lounge and the seventies fruit machine . The rooms themselves are an interesting mix of jolly colours, pop posters, Victorian fireplaces and king-size beds. Some have good sea views (the harbour is a 15-minute walk)”The Guardian
