Just to say thank you very much for a lovely stay at Toad Hall, we were very impressed with all the decorations, cake and bubbly! Toad Hall is a fabulous place for a family holiday in a very picturesque area. Many thanks to Nicki for all your help in making us very welcome.

Wonderful Stay over New Year

5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful 4 night stay between Christmas and New Year. Anne and Graham were very welcoming hosts. The apartment was very well equipped and very cosy - perfect for the damp weather outside. Location was perfect only a five minute walk down into Ilfracombe where there is an abundance of lovely pubs and restaurants. We look forwrad to returning in the Spring/Summer when we can make use of the lovely patio area and exlpore more of this lovely part of the world.
