Local Area Information
Ilfracombe is tucked away on the North Devon coast. The Victorians discovered that it enjoys its own micro climate and built an elegant seaside resort around the small fishing harbour that continues to bustle throughout the year.
Woodlands is situated in the Torrs Park conservation area, only a few minutes walk from the award winning Tunnels Beach, Landmark theatre and the Quay with its many restaurants (including Damien Hirst's). The golden sandy beaches of Woolacombe bay are 10 minutes away.
