Welcome to Avoncourt Lodge, Ilfracombe - Bed and Breakfast, Guesthouse

Our Ilfracombe bed and breakfast guesthouse is ideal for walkers, cyclists and all those wanting to enjoy the glorious outdoors of North Devon.  Avoncourt Lodge is an Ilfracombe Bed&Breakfast on a private road which is part of the South West Coastal Path, just a stone’s throw from the stunning cliff walk along the Torrs.  With a drying room for damp clothing, safe storage for cycles and most rooms with full length tubs for soaking tired limbs, Avoncourt Lodge is a perfect destination for relaxing after a day in the open air.  We also offer a comfortable lounge library and a fully stocked ‘honesty’ bar, so you can have a comfortable drink or snack while making plans for your day.

We have sufficient private parking for all our guests, and spectacular views of Ilfracombe and surrounding country from the front rooms, especially those with balconies.  The south facing front garden has tables and benches for relaxing in the Devon sunshine.  Full cooked breakfast with locally sourced produce and vegan or gluten free options on request is included for all our guests.

Call us to ensure a specific room request such as balcony, ground floor or bath tub, or to let us know you will be bringing a dog or require bike storage, please.

Dogs Welcome B&B on south west Coastal Path, ilfracombe

The South West Coastal Path runs right past the front door, making us the ideal dogs welcome bed and breakfast! Turn right and you have stunning walks along the cliffs and National Trust land.  Turn left and you are only a few minutes walk from the famous Tunnels Beaches with their safe bathing, fascinating rock pools and beautiful wedding venue.  Ilfracombe harbour and sea front, wide choice of restaurants and traditional high street are all within a 15 minute walk through the attractive museum gardens with views of Capstone Hill

Avoncourt Lodge was built as a hotel and bed and breakfast in the 1960s.  It has 10 simple, light and airy rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, 9 of which are on the first floor.  The front rooms have views over the lovely town of Ilfracombe.  Our ground floor room is especially useful for those with dogs, as it is nearest the front door with easy access to a cliff top walk before breakfast.  6 of our rooms are doubles, 2 are singles, 1 is a twin and one has a double and a single bed.  Because none of them accommodate an additional bed, we are better prepared for dogs than children!
