Recommended Local Attractions
Beach Cove is located near the idyllic Devon seaside town of Ilfracombe, where you can really relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Head down to Ilfracombe harbour and you will be able to take advantage of the romantic boat trips, which regularly set sail around the North Devon coastline. You can observe the seal pups which occupy the region, or potentially even hire a private charter where you and your partner can head off on your own romantic voyage.
There is also the opportunity to take part in various activities on the coast, including zip line-abseiling and surfing if you are looking for an activity filled holiday.
If that sounds a little too much for you, the resort is also ideally situated to explore the various coastal walking paths in the region, where you can take in the breath-taking views and admire the flourishing wildlife. There are also cycle hire options available if you would prefer not to explore the area on foot, with Tarka Trail a stunning 30 mile path which is sure to prove popular with cyclists.
Activities in the Area
If you are looking for golfing holidays in Devon, then Beach Cove Coastal Retreat could be the perfect place to set up camp as there are a number of highly rated golf courses in the region including Ilfracombe & Woolacombe Golf Clubs.
Beach Cove is also ideal for fishing holidays, with many popular fishing destinations in the local area. Indeed, the area is renowned for this, with the popular Ilfracombe fishing trail created as part of a partnership between the many fishing organisations in the area and also the many seafood restaurants nearby.
One restaurant right next to the park which is great for seafood is Hele Billy’s Bar & Restaurant, which we highly recommended to anyone staying at the resort. There are various other mouth watering dishes on the menu if seafood isn’t for you.
If you are just looking to chill out, you could always head down to the Landmark Theatre in Ilfracombe where you can watch a film or grab a bite to eat.
There are various other tourist attractions in the area including Watermouth Castle which has something for people of all ages, with a theme park also present at the destination. The castle was built as recently as 1825 and is actually a country house which was built to resemble a historic castle. It is a unique building which is highly recommended to holiday makers.
