Located in the costal town of Ilfracombe The Dorchester Guest House is a short walk from the town centre and the seafront & Tunnels beach.

By car you can get to the golden beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton all in under 10 minutes and Exmoor National Park is under 15 minutes away. Should beaches, beautiful scenery, shopping and walks along the coast path not appeal to you then there is also plenty of golfing, fishing, surfing, horse riding, quad biking and paint balling available locally as well as cycling along the famous Tarka trail which is perfect for both the young and young at heart.

All of this makes the Dorchester an ideal touring base no matter what you want from your holiday in North Devon.
