We're the perfect gateway into Exmoor and the North Devon Coast. Award-winning swimming and surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands are within easy reach. Family run and offering the warmest of welcomes, Score Valley Country House offers personal service in a comfortable historic country house.

The hotel has a well stocked bar and a games room with darts, pool table and traditional games including bar billiards and shove ha'penny. 

Rooms - 8

Guest rooms retain original period features such as beautiful fireplaces and high ceilings.  Each room has an ensuite shower/ bathroom or a private bathroom, and facilities including TVs, refreshment trays, hair dryers, shaver socket and toiletries.  Unfortunately we are unable to offer ground floor rooms and therefore accommodation may not be suitable for the less mobile.  Rooms are spread across three floors and all are non-smoking (guests are welcome to smoke in the garden area if they wish).
