It has a small harbour, with boat hire available. There is no shortage of activities on offer, Explore the stunning landscape and beaches, including the Tunnels Beaches and nearby Lundy Island. Wildlife coastal cruises are popular, unless you'd prefer the museums and aquariums Ilfracombe has to offer. Try the Walker's Chocolate Museum, The Lynton and Barnstable Railway, or 11th Century Chambercombe Manor, the most haunted house in England. Or why not visit The Old Corn Mill, a charming 16th century working watermill, museum & teagardens located in Hele, a short distance from Ilfracombe? There is no shortage of things to do in this part of Devon, whatever the weather.
As we are situated in the heart of Ilfracombe harbour it is impossible for us to have our own private guest car park.
Therefore our guests have always used local pay and display car parks near by.
Bikes: Sadly we do not have anywhere indoors to store bicycles but guests are welcome to lock and store them on our beer terrace over night as long as they do not obstruct our customers nor the through access to our neighbours.
