Ilfracombe - Classically contemporary
A fishing village since Saxon times, Ilfracombe's particular popularity as a fashionable seaside resort was established in 1874, around when Westwell Hall was built. Recent additions such as the design award winning Landmark Theatre and Damien Hirst's 'Verity' statue have won Ilfracombe international acclaim. Ilfracombe is gaining a reputation as the food capital of Devon, with a Michelin starred restaurant, fine dining and a vibrant and varied foodie scene.
Ilfracombe holds numerous events and festivals throughout the year, many based on the quayside at the historic harbour and at the Landmark Theatre on the seafront.
There are many fine and award winning beaches nearby, from secluded coves to the wide stretches of golden sand with crashing surf. For a unique beach experience visit 'The Tunnels' in Ilfracombe, holders of a blue flag and seaside award or Hele Bay to the east of the town also award winners, for good bathing and rock pool exploring.
Wildlife cruises leave regularly from the harbour as well as the ferry to the island of Lundy, home of the fabulous Puffins and Seals.
Ilfracombe is the perfect place to discover and explore everything this area has to offer with a range of activities available to suit all tastes including walking, clay pigeon shooting, fishing, horse riding, cycling, surfing, sub-aqua diving or simply exploring.
Torrs Park - Westwell Hall, occupies an imposing and elevated position, with sea views,
