Half Term Holidays

Are you thinking about the half term holidays at the end of October and wondering what to do with the kids??

How about something fresh and exciting?? Come and stay at Ocean Backpackers Independent Youth Hostel in Ilfracombe and try out some of the activities in the local area.

The surf is great at this time of year so why not have some surf lessons with one of our local surf instructors at the amazing Woolacombe beach?? How about going one step further and having go at adventure swimming/coasteering or sea kayaking or maybe try out all three???

If water sports do not appeal then how about taking in the spectacular scenery during an hours horse ride at nearby Mullacott or Woolacombe riding stables...there is beach rides for the more experienced!!

Quad biking, go karting, clay pigeon shooting .....there is so much for the kids to do they will be spoilt for choice!! Just check out the activity page on our website for local activity providers in the area!


Ocean Backpackers offers top quality budget accommodation at very affordable prices. Our en-suite family room sleeps four and think of all the money you can save as you can fully self cater your whole holiday!!! We are on the South West Coast Path so spectacular walks in the fresh sea air in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty are FREE just as the NCN Route 27 cycle track is too....just a short start from the backpackers!

So you don't have to spend a fortune this half term to take the kids away! Come and stay and enjoy the fun and relaxation Ocean Backpackers has to offer. See you soon!
