Nicki & Jonah welcome you to the Rocky Cove Bed & Breakfast & Nicki's Ice Cream Parlour in the heart of Ilfracombe, Devon.

We're a friendly, relaxed couple that fell in love with Ilfracombe again whilst visiting the area back in 2016. 


I had been to Ilfracombe several times since I was a teenager but Nicki had only visited when she was a child. We felt we were being called to the area so decided to leave our jobs in London and start our new adventure together in an area we really felt at home in.

The bed & breakfast accommodation is next to the sea. With Capstone Hill to the rear of the property and the sea beyond, when staying here you will truly feel the connection to the sea that surrounds us.

Ideally situated only a few minutes walk from Ilfracombe harbour and surrounding shops and restaurants, our accommodation is perfect for for a relaxing weekend break or longer holiday allowing you to discover all that the North Devon area has to offer from a very central point.

Only 7 miles from the world famous golden sands of Woolacombe Beach,  5 miles from the pretty coastal village of Combe Martin and 18 miles from Lynton & Lynmouth which are both lovely coastal villages with Lynton also having the Valley or the Rocks as one of it's many attractions.


If you chose to stay with us you will also benefit from being only a short walking distance from all of Ilfracombe's main attractions including Damian Hirst's Verity, the Landmark Theatre, The Tunnel Beaches , The Ilfracombe Museum and of course Ilfracombe's charming high street and Fore Street which boasts Ilfracombe's first Michelin starred restaurant.
