ILFRACOMBE is a busy fishing port and delightful seaside town. It is steeped in maritime history which can be seen with its hotchpotch of cottages, workshops and inns found around the harbour area. Unique to Ilfracombe are the hand carved tunnels leading to sheltered beaches and the tidal Victorian bathing pool. The town has a growing reputation as the culinary and cultural hub of North Devon, renowned for Damien Hurst’s 20m high statue Verity and a collection of art galleries and on ‘foodie’ Fore Street there are many restaurants with high-quality menus.

 

RHS ROSEMOOR is spread across 65 acres within a dramatic wooded valley and its native trees and wildflowers are a haven for wildlife! The original garden was created by Lady Anne Berry and is a true plants-man’s garden, with formal ornamental areas, shrubs, roses, perennials and bulbs. Highlights include a Cottage, Stone, Hot, Fruit & Vegetable Gardens as well as a Woodland Garden and Stream & Rock Gully.

 

BIDEFORD is an attractive town on the west bank of the River Torridge, where the old road has an impressive stone arched bridge that dates back to the 16th century when Bideford was Britain’s third largest port. Today, the town is a thriving shopping centre with the historic Pannier Market and many shops scattered amongst the narrow back streets and alleyways that lead up from the quay and river. The tree-lined quay still bustles with fishing, cargo and pleasure boats.
