Winter Breaks In North Devon

Winter is a perfect time of year to visit the North Devon coast. Whether you’re into walking, cycling, shooting, visiting a historic site, or simply relaxing with some good food and a drink, we have everything.

The crisp seascapes lead the way to a day of exploring and discovering everything that makes Ilfracombe special. Our team can recommend some of the best hidden beaches to visit, along with some of the best walks around the area. We’re a dog-friendly hotel too, so don’t forget your four-legged friend for some wintery walks! Take a look at our North Devon Walking Guide.
