Tunnels Beaches | Bath Place | Ilfracombe | Devon | EX34 8AN
...................................................................................................................

Directions...
From Barnstaple (A361): On entering Ilfracombe at the first set of traffic lights
turn left towards sea front (following brown tourist signs for Tunnels Beaches),
then at the next set of traffic lights turn left again. Tunnels Beaches is directly
ahead of you. Bath Place car park is on your right, opposite Bath House and our
main entrance.

From Combe Martin (A399): At the second set of traffic lights in Ilfracombe High
Street turn right into Northfield Road (following brown tourist signs for Tunnels
Beaches). At the next set of traffic lights go straight across. Tunnels Beaches is
directly ahead of you. Bath Place car park is on your right, opposite Bath House
and our main entrance.

Parking...
There is a pay and display car park at our entrance for approximately 35 cars.
Alternatively there is parking on the public roads nearby. However, many guests
stay in nearby self catering houses or B&Bs and leave their cars there –
a good
idea, especially if attending a wedding during July or August when car parks are
likely to be very busy.
