Ilfracombe Bowling Club has, for many years, been a very popular venue for visiting clubs from all over the country and we love having your company.  Our Clubhouse benefits from sea views and has plenty of room and you can be sure of a well stocked bar for your visit. 

Ilfracombe has been a holiday destination spanning three centuries and, if you remember coming here in your youth, you won't be disappointed - not a lot has changed.  A unique and stunning coastline, tranquil walks, a fascinating harbour and a wealth of heritage and historical interest.

Within our coastal town you will find everything from the natural beauty you would expect from a coastline within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to an amazing architectural diversity.  The grandeur of our Victoria past blends with fascinating examples of modern imagination such as the Landmark Theatre and, of course, Damien Hirst's statue - Verity.

There are many hotels in Ilfracombe that can accommodate touring sides at very reasonable costs and our Match Secretary will be only too pleased to help with your selection.  One of our local hotels, namely, The Osborne, is situated in a very favourable position for visiting our bowls club and many of the attractions in Ilfracombe, they have looked after several touring sides over the last few years.
