An exciting re-awakening for The Earlsdale

Originally called ‘The Earlsdale Hotel’ from the 1910s, our grand Victorian villa was later known as ‘Sea Breeze’ – but under our ownership from 2019 - the original name of ‘The Earlsdale’ has been reinstated and it's Victorian grandeur is being revived to stunning effect.

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