Cycling

Walking

Whether you're looking for a scenic stroll or a more adventurous hike, the South West Coast Path follows the coast all the way from Somerset, through Devon and Cornwall and into Dorset. It's only a few miles from site so a perfect place to start exploring. 

If you're more into country walks, the National Trust's Morte Point is ideal for walkers; why not try the 6-mile Morte Point and Bull Point walk where you can look out for seals along the coast and enjoy the coastal heath-land and maritime grasslands.

Head to the tunnels beaches to learn how Ilfracombe was transformed from a small fishing village into a popular seaside tourist resort. The tunnels were hand carved in the 1820s and there's plenty for all the family to enjoy, from the tidal pool to rock pools.

You could also visit Ilfracombe Museum which has eight rooms to explore filled with an eclectic mix of displays, with both natural and local history to discover.
