About Abigail Landon
We took over Laston house back in 2011, and have done a lot of work to this beautiful building. We want our guests to feel at home here in beautiful Ilfracombe.
Abigail Landon purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2011
Why Abigail Landon chose Ilfracombe
We really love the location of the house. It is close to fantastic beaches, golf courses, and the south west coastal path. It is also in the perfect location to wonder down to the beautiful working harbour, and the fantastic restaurants of Ilfracombe. Its a great house for family and friends to get together and celebrate birthdays, weddings or just have a super holiday all together under one roof.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
You can relax in the lovely lounge and play one of the board games we have here, or explore the 3 acres of shared garden, see if you can find the medieval pig sty! We have plenty of toys for younger children, a wii for slightly older. We have travel cots and high chairs just contact us if you require these (freeing up much needed car space!).
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Fabulous family holiday
It was the ideal place our large family gathering to celebrate my parents birthdays. The facilities were fantastic for our group aged 4 to 80yrs. We were delighted that the dining room was big enough for us all to eat together and the lounge was beautiful with plenty of sofas, games for the kids, a large tv and lovely views over the bay.We played badminton on the lawn and ate outside when the sun came out. The harbour & shops are just a few minutes walk away. We had some lovely walks and a really good meal at the Quay restaurant in the harbour. The adults and older kids had a fantastic day on Woolacombe beach boogie boarding which is a short car journey and the younger kids loved walking down to the harbour beach for a paddle, building sandcastles and an ice cream. Our hosts were very helpful settling us in and we have already booked in again for the New Year....we can't wait :)
What a great place for a family holiday! One of the best yet. It's not easy to find somewhere to accommodate our large family. We have five children and with their five partners and all the grandchildren we filled the eight bedrooms at Laston House. Nearly all the bedrooms are en-suite which everyone liked and the communal space was ample to cope with us all.
Abigail and Greg were brilliant, very welcoming and quietly supportive making the holiday very special. The garden could cope with al fresco dining, frisbee and football and the car park managed to hold our seven cars! There are loads of family friendly beaches and restaurants nearby.
This venue is to be recommended for large family holidays or would easily offer a good space for several families combining for a group holiday. I would definitely consider going back in the future. My youngest grand-daughter asked if I would buy the house so we could all live together….forever!! Ummm?
