Spring breaks at Marine Court
Spring is in the air and it's a perfect time to invite friends to join you for an impromptu mid-week break by the coast. Located in the stunning harbour town of Ilfracombe, our large holiday let is surrounded by breath-taking scenery and a wide range of activities catering for everyone's interests. If you're looking for a coastal getaway, then we have the perfect place for you.
Coast and beach walks are one of the best ways to explore the beauty of the area. Imagine walking along the stunning coastline with the salty breeze in your hair, enjoying the sensational views and sunsets, and discovering hidden coves and rock pools. Take a trip to Lynton and Lynmouth to ride on the highest funicular railway powered entirely by water in the world, before enjoying a gorgeous cream tea while taking in the views. Photography enthusiasts will be in heaven, with endless opportunities to capture stunning shots of the coastal landscapes and wildlife.
For those who love history, take a visit to the National Trust's Arlington Court, where you'll find the fantastic National Trust Carriage Museum. If military history is your passion, you may be surprised to learn the role that North Devon played in the training for the D-Day landings. Around Braunton Burrows you can still see concrete mock-ups of landing craft which were used by American forces to rehearse the attack.
If you're a golf enthusiast, there are several golf courses in the area, with Ilfracombe Golf Club offering breath-taking views of the coastline; you can see the sea from every tee. A 10% discount on green fees is available to any golfers staying at Marine Court.
There are also many art galleries and shops in the area, showcasing works from local artists. The town has had a long history with arts and crafts, including Damien Hirst who lived close by and has loaned the 66 foot high statue Verity to the town. It's located on the pier, creating an imposing entrance to the harbour.
A day trip to Lundy Island is a must-do, where you can enjoy stunning views of the coast and learn about its history. You can also enjoy various outdoor activities such as hiking, bird watching, and fishing.
For those who prefer relaxing indoors, our holiday let offers a range of options such as board games, smart TVs and a games room with a pool table. Or grab a book from our shelves and curl up in the window seats to enjoy it.
And of course, no trip to the coast is complete without indulging in a classic afternoon tea, which is available in many local cafes and restaurants or perhaps it'll be fish and chips on the beach.
So, whether you're looking for an adventurous trip or a relaxing vacation, our coastal holiday let is the perfect place for you. Book now and make memories that will last a lifetime!
