Ilfracombe nestles around a harbour as old and as beautiful as any in Britain with the breath taking scenery of North Devon as a backdrop. Commonly known as the pretty harbour town and seaside resort, Ilfracombe is enclosed by massive slate cliffs. Its beautiful Victorian style and unspoilt charm takes you back in time; for generations, many of the independent stores have been passed through the same family. It is clear to see why the stunning coastal scenery and array of attractions makes this harbour town a great choice for tourists seeking coach holidays to Ilfracombe.
Attracting walkers and cyclists, this seaside resort is great for holiday makers who appreciate the great outdoors in this rugged area of North Devon. For the energetic there are splendid walks along the Coastal Path, the famous Torrs walks or swimming from the Tunnel beaches and coves. For those who like to take things a bit easier, one can simply stroll through the delightful gardens or while away an hour or two watching the ever-changing harbour scene.
A boat trip is a “must” during your stay to see the spectacular cliffs of North Devon or visit the legendary Isle of Lundy. There is also plenty to do in the evenings with theatre, concerts and cinemas, as well as, the entertainment provided at our hotel. Families can venture out a little bit further to visit the award-winning Ilfracombe Aquarium, or to visit the amusement parks and zoos. Recognised at an ‘up-and-coming culture and foodie destination’ Ilfracombe has a variety of art galleries. One of the most controversial pieces of contemporary art here is Verity’s statue – created by Damien Hirst, which intensifies the towns fascinating but curious costal charm.
