If you have a family like us, then Bank Holidays are all about getting away and creating some fantastic memories!! Here at Ocean Backpackers we provide the perfect location for your fun coastal weekender! We are situated very close to the picturesque Ilfracombe Harbour and have the South West Coast Path and route 27 cycle track on our doorstep. Boat trips from the Harbour range from leisure cruises to an adrenalin fuelled ride on a super fast rib! There's fishing, crabbing, rock pooling nearby and the lovely Ilfracombe Aquarium to visit as well as the fascinating Ilfracombe Museum and Chambercombe Manor too!
Take a ten minute drive to the stunning Woolacombe Beach(threee miles of unspoilt golden sands) or venture a bit further to Croyde or Saunton! Time to try out a bit of surfing with lessons from quailified instructors or just hire a board and wet suit and give it a go!!
Ilfracombe has an abundance of restaurants, cafes, galleries and shops and has a very chilled vibe! Take advantage of our full self-catering faciliites or enjoy eating out and sampling Ilfracombe's eateries for all budgets! With our family, you cant go wrong with fish'n'chips on the beach after a hard days holidaying!!!
