ILFRACOMBE

Due to the falling value of sterling, many UK coastal resorts are enjoying an increase in bookings for 2020 and are therefore asking for deposits a lot sooner than in previous years.
Carlton Hotel
- situated close to the harbour, sea front and high street. I currently have doubles/twins and 8 singles on hold but I must have your deposit of £50pp by 10 September at the latest (I have extended the time from August but they simply won’t budge any further). I will need a minimum of 30 members to make this viable. Cost will be Twins/Doubles £442pp;  Singles £498pp. This includes the coach and the hotel on a half-board basis. It does not include entrance fees or gratuities. I am currently looking at the following for our visits: West Somerset Railway; Lynmouth & Lynton; Exmoor; Dunster Castle & Dartington Crystal.
