Ideal for walkers, cyclists and all those wanting to enjoy the great outdoors of North Devon, Avoncourt Lodge is on a private road which is part of the South West Coastal Path, just a stone’s throw from the stunning cliff walk along the Torrs. With a drying room for damp clothing, safe storage for cycles and most rooms with full length tubs for soaking tired limbs, Avoncourt Lodge is a perfect destination for relaxing after a day in the open air. We also offer a comfortable lounge library and a fully stocked ‘honesty’ bar, so you can have a sociable drink or snack while making plans for the next day We have ample private parking for our guests, and spectacular views of the town and surrounding country from the front rooms, especially those with balconies. The south facing front garden has tables and benches for relaxing in the Devon sunshine. Full cooked breakfast with locally sourced produce is included for all our guests The South West Coastal Path runs right past the front door. Turn right and you have stunning walks along the cliffs and National Trust land. Turn left and you are only a few minutes walk from the famous Tunnels Beaches with their safe bathing, fascinating rock pools and famous wedding venue. The harbour and sea front, wide choice of restaurants and traditional high street are all within a 20 minute walk Avoncourt Lodge was built as a hotel in the 1960s. It has 10 simple, light and airy rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, 9 of which are on the first floor. Our ground floor room is especially useful for those travelling with dogs, as it is nearest the front door with easy access to a cliff top walk before breakfast. 6 of our rooms are doubles, 2 are singles, 1 is a twin and one has a double and a single bed. Because none of them accommodate an additional bed, we are better prepared for dogs than children
Previously a commuter to London, Alison opted for a change of pace and lifestyle in April 2017. She wanted a location with great walks for her basset hound and enough space for her library - both of which she has found at Avoncourt Lodge
The South West Coastal Path runs right past the front door. Turn right and you have stunning walks along the cliffs and National Trust land. Turn left and you are only a few minutes walk from the famous Tunnels Beaches, the sea front and the bustling town centre. Ilfracombe is a picturesque seaside town with authentic fishing harbour and boat trips to Lundy Island and around the coast. Art galleries also abound, given Damian Hirst heritage and installation of Verity on the jetty
