  • Things to try Things to try

    An absolute must-do is a trip to Lundy Island, just 24 miles off the coast from Ilfracombe, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bristol Channel. The island itself is 3 miles long by ½ mile wide and is inhabited by only 28 residents and an abundance of goats, hairy coos, seals, puffins, sika deer, black rabbits, as well as basking sharks in the water. It’s the perfect day trip for keen walkers and wildlife lovers. Book your ferry crossing from Ilfracombe.

     

    Visit Ilfracombe Museum and discover the town’s rich history and find objects from around the world within their vast collections.

     

    Get the paddling bug and head to OSKC Watersports to try out kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding on the gentle waves of Combe Martin bay. With plenty of cover to explore too, this is family fun for all levels of ability.
