The rooms themselves are an interesting mix of jolly colours, pop posters, Victorian fireplaces and king-size beds. Many have fantastic sea views. Open the back gate of Norbury House and you are on the coast path in 3 minutes. Walk along the coastal path to Lee Bay, Just 3 miles away from Torrs Park with exciting coastal scenery and views of Lundy Island. It's another world: leave the stress behind. The Neighbourhood Discover some of the delights of this unspoilt area. You can go walking across Exmoor National Park, go fishing or surfing, play a round or two of golf, take a stroll along the North Devon and Somerset coastal path, or take one of the many ships from Ilfracombe harbour that visit the magical Lundy Island. Well worth a visit are picturesque Lynton and Lynmouth, the fabulous surf beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde, and Putsborough Getting around Bring your cars - we have off street parking for 6 cars. Good local taxi network available. You can bus it to Barnstaple and surrounding areas. Restaurants For food lovers a visit to the acclaimed 11 The Quay, Damien Hirst's restaurant, is a must. With wonderful locally produced food, an extensive wine list, fabulous decor and relaxed professional service, this is definitely not to be missed. La Gendarmerie is housed in Ilfracombe's stunning old police station where your hosts Paul and Sarah have created a stylish modern brasserie where rustic charm meets contemporary design.
