Bicclescombe Mill and tea rooms

Bicclescombe tea rooms
and Bicclescombe Mill

Ilfracombe’s Bicclescombe park is the largest public park in the town and has been awarded a green flag consistently for several years now. As well as beautiful landscaped gardens, children’s playground, and tennis courts, the park benefits greatly from the tea rooms housed in the old farmhouse which is part of the mill.

The tea rooms is entirely staffed by volunteers and is run as a not for profit organisation. Consequently prices are very reasonable. Many locals come here to relax and enjoy a cream tea (£2.50) toasted sandwich (£2.00) cold drinks (50p a can) and especially the Dunster Farm dairy ice creams for just a pound.

There are new picnic tables outside as well as seating inside in case the weather turns ugly. There are customer toilets and public toilets nearby and there are various toys fir younger children close by where parents can supervise while enjoying their snack.

The older children’s playground is the other side of some trees and a stream.
