Ilfracombe enjoys a setting of rare beauty set as it is amongst the breathtaking scenery of North Devon and nestling around a harbour as old and beautiful as any in Britain. 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 evening with theatre, concerts, and cinema, as well as the entertainment provided at our hotel.
