A new era for The Earlsdale

Originally called ‘The Earlsdale Hotel’ from the 1920s, our grand Victorian villa was later known as ‘Sea Breeze’ from the 1980s – but under new ownership from 2019 - the original name of ‘The Earlsdale’ has been reinstated.

Lewis and James are proud to carry on the long-held tradition of providing premium Bed and Breakfast accomodation for visitors to Ilfracombe, Exmoor and the stunning North Devon Coast.
