North Devon Weekender (based in Ilfracombe)

North Devon Weekender (based in Ilfracombe)

Based at the CARLTON HOTEL




4 DAYS FROM £276


There are few places in Britain that can lay claim to such a beautiful combination of stunning landscapes as North Devon with its coastline of spectacular cliffs, secret coves and golden beaches together with a hinterland of wild moorland, sparkling rivers and lush rolling hills. Nestling between Exmoor National Park to the east and the golden surfing beaches to the west, the coastal town of Ilfracombe is the ‘jewel’ of the North Devon coast with its white washed houses, grand Victorian villas and terraces.


Our base in Ilfracombe is the very comfortable CARLTON HOTEL which is very centrally situated just a short level walk from the town centre and the harbour. Having recently undergone a major refurbishment programme, the Carlton retains the classic style of the Victorian era and features a restaurant, serving locally sourced produce, along with a lounge and bar. Naturally all of the en suite bedrooms feature tv, telephone, hair dryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.
