Autumn Breaks In North Devon
An Autumn break in North Devon offers the best of all worlds. The crowds have gone and this is a great time to enjoy the region against the backdrop of stunning coastal scenery and the flush of Autumn colours in the countryside. Many popular visitor attractions, including historic houses and managed gardens, are still open and this is definitely the time of year to make the best of the many available activities.
North Devon is a popular destination for walkers and dog walkers, with routes for all levels of ability. These range from straight-forward sandy beach strolls to hikes along stunning sections of North Devon South West Coast Path (which can be accessed just minutes away from the hotel). The region is renowned for being an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) with Exmoor National Park and Braunton Burrows (UNESCO biosphere) just short drives away.
The Carlton Hotel makes an excellent base to explore the delights of Ilfracombe town. We also make a great base for exploring leisure activities such as surfing, kayaking, cycling, clay pigeon shooting, golf, scuba diving and much more. Guests can make the most of our partnership with Coastal Adventures in providing guests even more choice of activities in the great outdoors.
Ilfracombe in the Autumn
Ilfracombe is a beautiful, year-round tourist destination. An Autumn break is the perfect time to visit if you enjoy a calmer pace of life, want to escape the crowds and truly relax & unwind on your break, away from it all. Walk out the hotel and head in any direction, you’ll find so much here to experience.
Relax after a refreshing day out in The Brasserie. Enjoy locally sourced, hand prepared, delicious food that has been lovingly created by our chef/patron. Top your evening off with a drink from our well stocked bar, then wind down in our lounge before retiring to your room for a comfortable night of sleep.
