About The Poplars

Nestled in the valley of Combe Martin, The Poplars Guest House offers Victorian comfort and convenience coupled with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you.


Welcome to The Poplars Guest House

A characterful Victorian property built in the late 1800s, it first opened as a 10 bedroom hotel in 1929. Having been acquired by Neill and Janet Thompson, as recently as the end of March 2021, the property has been extensively refurbished and transformed into a 5 bedroom Bed & Breakfast Guest House.
The Poplars is a spacious property in an envious location, being within yards of both Newbury & Combe Martin Beach and has sea and countryside views from the rear balcony rooms. The accommodation and amenities are generous and give guests the opportunity to relax and enjoy this beautiful part of the country.

We offer an attentive high-quality service and are always ready to offer any help to guests.

Breakfast included with all reservations.

We have three dog friendly rooms which are the De Luxe Double rooms.

On the ground floor, apart from the reception and breakfast dining area, there is a comfortable lounge and a licenced bar area where you can have a drink and relax after a day out exploring.

A rich heritage in the heart of COMBE MARTIN

Combe Martin

Set in a fertile valley or ‘combe’, Combe Martin lies at the centre of some of North Devon’s most spectacular coastal scenery.   Subject to countless documentaries and wildlife programmes, this ‘Jurassic’ coastline provides a visual treat unparalleled in the English countryside.

Combe Martin is the perfect base for your holiday giving you the perfect centre for touring the coastal villages of Lynton and Lynmouth, the beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton and the Victorian coastal resort of Ilfracombe. Clovelly is only 25 miles along the coast.

The unspoilt village atmosphere combined with the close proximity of many North Devon  landmarks probably account for its popularity,  so if we can help, just contact us and we hope to see you join the many other holiday makers who have earmarked Combe Martin out for an annual visit.
