Ilex House Bed and Breakfast accommodation offers two double bedded rooms one with ensuite bath, powerful shower and wc and one simply with ensuite powerful shower and wc. The room rates are from £45.00 for single occupancy and from £70.00 for double occupancy for one night, or from £40.00 or from £60 for two or more nights – all rates are inclusive of breakfast.
Also available is one twin bedded room with wash basin. This room can only be booked in conjunction with a double room since the bathroom would become shared although there is a separate wc. It is most suitable therefore for family or close friends. The cost of this package for four occupants is £100.00 for the first night and £90 for two or more nights. The twin bedded room is not available for booking by itself.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome but we make a small charge for them. We have our own friendly Labradors here.
Ilex House Bed & Breakfast is in a peaceful, rural location just inside the Dartmoor National Park but within easy reach of the A38 and M5. Ideally placed for exploring Dartmoor or the beautiful South Devon countryside and coast; yet the centres of Exeter, Plymouth and Torbay can be reached in around half an hour. We have plenty of room for parking right outside the front door.
The double bedded rooms come complete with TV, DVD, Wi-Fi, shared mini fridge on the landing, hairdryer, and tea and coffee making facilities. (An iron and ironing board are available along with a washing machine and tumble dryer. These last two by arrangement and with notice and subject to a small charge.)
The nearby historic town of Ashburton offers a varied choice of eating places along with a good selection of shops. Alternatively there are many rural pubs serving good food both on Dartmoor and in the surrounding South Devon countryside.
Two nearby favourite pubs with our guests are The Rugglestone Inn at Widecombe in the Moor - www.rugglestoneinn.co.uk – and The Cleave at Lustleigh – www.thecleavelustleigh.uk.com. Both are traditional style and traditional looking English pubs serving food. Both can be very busy so booking is a good idea.
We have a large garden with fantastic views and a terrace where you can sit for breakfast, mid morning coffee and so on.
Delicious breakfasts, freshly cooked to order, are available – both full and light.
French spoken here (ici on parle français) – as well as English!
We look forward to welcoming you to Ilex House.
