Welcome to Avoncourt Lodge

A Dogs Welcome Ilfracombe Guesthouse/Bed & Breakfast

Avoncourt Lodge is a simple, light and airy Ilfracombe bed and breakfast/guesthouse and is ideal for those with dogs, as well as walkers, cyclists and all those wanting to enjoy the glorious outdoors of North Devon.  Our Ilfracombe Bed & Breakfast is 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.

Dogs welcome Guesthouse/B&B in Ilfracombe

We welcome pets and would be happy to meet your dog, just asking that you let us know you are bringing one with you to the Avoncourt Lodge. We do try to be pet friendly rather than simply pet tolerant, and can provide dog towels, dog treats and doggy bags if you have forgotten anything. We hope you and your dog will feel at home.

We are in ideal dog walking country, with access to the South West Coastal Pathway on our doorstep. We can advise you on which beaches allow dogs and which places to eat and drink in Ilfracombe have areas for dog owners.

Come and stay in beautiful North Devon...

Avoncourt Lodge is situated on the West side of Ilfracombe, on a hill above the Tunnels Beaches and the Landmark Theatre.  The picturesque and authentic fishing port of Ilfracombe is an interesting 10 minute walk down the hill and through the Museum gardens to reach the Promenade and town centre.
