Around and About

Ilfracombe's spectacular climate and sandy beaches are a good place to start when exploring.  There is excellent surfing at Woolacombe and you can walk your dog along the magnificent local clifftops.  The adventurous can enjoy horse riding, quad biking and paint balling, while people who enjoy a slower pace can try golf or take a sailing trip to Lundy Island on the MS Oldenburg. We can help you book fishing or diving holidays. 


Guests should note, Fore Street is a one way street, accessed via High Street.  There is no access from the seafront.  When you enter Fore Street continue through a large blue arch and you will see a 'No Entry' sign.  Just underneath this sign is a loading/ unloading sign.  After you've come through this sign - the Harcourt Hotel is set back around 20 yards on your left hand side.
