    History

    [​IMG]
    The hotel in it's former glory.

    Lee Bay Hotel is situated in a small village near Ilfracombe, the area itself is stunning of which XTheRoseRedX and myself quickly fell in love with. The hotel was closed in 2009, (this was actually surprising to find out considering the very dated interior of the rooms themselves, the wallpaper could have easily been there from the 80's) and apparently only recently within the last few years there was a possible development into flats, but our visit found that the building is to be demolished within the coming months, so if you're planning a visit, it needs to be sooner rather than later.

    The Visit

    The drive here for us was a pleasant one as it was coastal the whole way and took a couple of hours, originally I hadn't planned for it to be much of an explore as I'd seen a couple other reports and the place itself looked pretty average with some nice features here and there. It actually turned out to be one of our favourite to date, I think partly the location, partly the excitement of seeing which wallpaper the next room would have definitely helped.

    The building has evidently recently been re boarded, but access is still very much there if you're willing to be inventive/or just have a keen eye as we later found out.

    We found a friend, we named him Bernard.

    Nice report. Particularly like the image of the branches coming through the window frames and the leaves on the floor.
