Rambling, walking or simply strolling, from Ilfracombe lets you explore the dramatic North Devon coast and in land trails at your leisure.
With a great choice of coastal, inland and combinations of walks to be enjoyed, you get to take in the very best of the area and it’s magnificent views. And, when you base yourself at the Carlton, you are at the centre of a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and within a unique UNESCO biosphere.
The amazing South West Coast path can be joined from the rear of the hotel. The Tarka trail, much of it over redundant railway alignment, naturally offers a less rigorous walk, but with the opportunity to see hidden views.
At the Carlton we regularly host individual and groups of ramblers. Our experience at looking after you before and after an arduous walk will be rewarding.
We can fully cater for your day with a great range of meal options including Continental and Full English breakfast choices, picnic lunches and mouth-watering three-course diners. We can even arrange a rendezvous, where we deliver to you a hot soup and lunch – very popular during the colder months.
When you return to the hotel why not relax in our library with a hot chocolate, latte, freshly brewed tea and afternoon cake? Of course our well-stocked bar and wine list can meet your other refreshment needs.
Our drying room can dry any outer clothing if unusually the Devon weather isn’t so kind.
