Introducing Ilfracombe, North Devon’s premier resort and one of Alfa Travel’s best loved coach holiday destinations.
Enjoying a setting of rare beauty amongst the breathtaking scenery of Exmoor and the North Devon coastline, Ilfracombe is home to some of the finest walking country in England.
If you’re looking for more than a gentle promenade or a walk along the rugged coastline, there’s plenty to do in and around Ilfracombe. On offer is a terrific range of activities including swimming, fishing, horse riding, cycling, or simply exploring local National Trust properties & stately homes. There are boat trips with the opportunity to observe seals and falcons at close quarters. Boat trips also run to the Isle of Lundy, and you can enjoy transport of days gone by on Exmoor Steam Railways.
If it’s entertainment you’re looking for, you will find numerous events and festivals throughout the year, many based on the quayside at the historic harbour and at the prestigious Landmark Theatre on the seafront.
And if all the above doesn’t whet your appetite you may be tempted by what, for many, is the perfect reason for a visit, the region’s world famous Devon cream tea. Afternoon teas have seen a surge of popularity in recent years and there’s no more fitting location for this traditional, clotted cream treat than idyllic Ilfracombe.
Alfa Travel has the perfect base for exploring Ilfracombe in the splendidly located Imperial Hotel. Overlooking the gardens, close to the shops and only a short almost level walk from the harbour, the Imperial has 104 rooms, sun lounge, attractive cocktail bar and dance floor where entertainment is provided most evenings.
