"This is such a welcoming, lovely house, every time I come here I fall more and more in love with it. Nigel's garden is stunning, (dont forget to buy some of his delicious jam) but the real draw has to be Iris's astrological predictions. Book ahead and she will give you a fabulous reading of your birth chart. Not to be missed."

We want to say a big thank you for our stay, we really enjoyed it and thought Ilex House was lovely... Toby has told all his friends about his tussle with a gigantic hound of the Baskerville’s type dog and they are all suitably impressed... We had a lovely holiday overall... very hot... Ant got to go surfing up at Woolacoombe... We only managed one cream tea but it was delicious... even Toby had a bit!!!! As promised have attached some Horsey seal pup pics. We will see you again next summer."
love Clare, Ant and Toby (Guests from Suffolk)

[Editors notes – Toby is Clare & Ant’s Dog. All three of them live in Suffolk and stayed here in June 2009]
