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 Tunnels Beaches and their spectacular wedding venue
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
Avoncourt Lodge is situated on the West side of Ilfracombe, above the Tunnels Beaches and the Landmark Theatre. The picturesque and authentic fishing port of Ilfracombe is a picturesque 10 minute walk down the hill and through the Museum gardens to reach the Esplanade and town centre Interesting things to do include walking along the Capstone Parade, cut in 1843 to allow the Victorians to stroll along the cliff paths, and visiting St Nicholas Chapel, the oldest lighthouse in England. The Victorians also constructed the Tunnels Beaches, less than 5 minutes away. Carved through the rock in the 1820s to allow access to the tidal bathing pools, the Tunnels still offer protected tidal bathing today, as well as fascinating rock pools and historical details of their construction. The Tunnels are also one of the foremost wedding venues in England, with glorious photo-ops and excellent food and service The harbour itself is still a working fishing port, and has a charm and authenticity that only working ports maintain. The Oldenburg still operates from here, taking visitors to the wildlife and nature reserves of Lundy Island – wise to book in advance to be sure of a sailing
