Spring Breaks In North Devon

A Spring Break staying at The Carlton in North Devon is arguably the best time of year to visit this
part of the South-West.
With fewer visitors at this time of year, as the landscape transforms with an abundance of colour,
activities and life, you’ve a greater opportunity to do and see more.
Look out for new blooms as both wildflowers and man-made gardens are reborn. Migrating birds add
to our natural biodiversity. All of this will enchant you if you enjoy photography, walking, cycling or
The longer days and milder weather assist in extending your exploration of our vibrant coast, inland
paths and nearby Exmoor. Of course, the South West Coast path is right on the doorstep, and you can
cycle coast to coast on route 27 starting at Ilfracombe Harbour.
Seasonal ingredients become integrated into our menus, both in our Brasserie and other local eateries.

North Devon Culture
Festivals, like the Ilfracombe Art Trail and Jack In The Green will both entertain and immerse you in
genuine arts, crafts and local heritage; a great opportunity to dive into our local culture. There’s more
ideas to be found at Visit Ilfracombe.
Spring is surely that time for you to plan a break, that can include the best of everything. Be it time
outdoors for your mental and physical wellbeing, simply enjoying great food and drink, discovering
local culture, as much as making the most of our attractions and activities nearby.

Great Location
The Carlton is surrounded by stunning seascapes, beautiful beaches, golden sands and quiet coves that
lead the way to a day of exploring and discovering everything that makes Ilfracombe and North
Devon special. Our team can recommend some of the best hidden beaches to visit, along with some of
the nicest walks around the area for a spring stroll.

We’re a dog-friendly hotel too, so don’t forget your four-legged friend for some great walks!
Our hotel is close to the centre of town and Ilfracombe harbour, meaning all our guests have a huge
choice of things to do from the doorstep, whether the emphasis is on fun, activities, nature, food or
culture. The harbour is the starting point for boat trips and other water-based excursions, and plays
host to the striking Verity, donated to the town by the artist Damien Hirst.

The town’s cinema, Landmark Theatre and numerous galleries provide entertainment programmes, featuring film, theatre and the arts.

We’d love to welcome you to The Carlton this Spring. Check out our blog to see what the region
