Having read some reviews we were slightly concerned, however, very impressed with friendly and helpful staff. Renovations are underway following new ownership and looking good so far. Food from Indian Takeaway lovely! Really enjoyed our stay and looking forward to another visit! ☺

Came here for a half term break with the kids .Didn't see a lot of them . Staff were really helpful . Although there were 2 electric radiators in the apartment it was extremely cold , probably due to us arriving in the snow, we bought 2 fan heaters from Tesco's which solved the issue .The kids loved it .

The kids absolutely loved this holiday. We stayed in a block of chalets, it was clean, warm, tidy and well presented. The constant thumping of peoples feet above was frustrating but understandable, if you go to a holiday park its what kids do - hoon it around and burn off energy. What i'd say is this; for the the adults...

After reading reviews about Ilfracombe holiday park I was really worried about the cleanliness of the apartments. I booked a gold apartment as advised by other reviews, and was pleased to find that they were clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything you required. Didn't use oven so cannot comment, but microwave, toaster,kettle, fridge were very clean. Bathroom with shower...

Another great festival weekend at John Fowlers Ilfracombe site. The Solid Entertainments organised Blues Festival was another huge success with some great names and sounds over the three days . Many in the crowd having travelled far and wide to enjoy the music , it is a shame that more local people do not support this event as it is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ilfracombe Holiday Park has everything you could want on a family holiday. A 56’ heated pool, a sauna, children’s play areas and an internet cafe provide you with all the comforts of home and more. Relax in our pool during the day, and then head to the Exmoor Club for the evening’s entertainment, free to everybody staying at our Ilfracombe Holiday Parks. This park is set at the top of the valley Ilfracombe lies in, so you get views right down over the town and out to sea, exactly what you’d expect from a Devon holiday. If you don’t want to deal with cooking on holiday then our Farmhouse Kitchen Restaurant can cook you up a wide variety of fare, from low price snacks to full grills and specialty dishes. We even offer takeaways. If you are going to cook for yourself, our onsite shop sells everything you’ll need, and there’s a Tesco superstore just a five minute walk away. ... more   less
