Lantern Court 
Lantern Court was ?highly commended' in the best retirement scheme category at the Housebuilder Awards 2012. Lantern Court is a truly iconic new development, well located on the historic harbour of Ilfracombe. The development's bold, modern design was seen as an opportunity to express the town's aspiration to move confidently into a 21st century renaissance. Built a few hundred metres from the main shopping area, Lantern Court is also adjacent to a bus stop with regular services to Braunton, Barnstaple, Woolacombe and other neighbouring towns. Ilfracombe is located in North Devon and became a safe port due to the natural layout of the harbour. The main shopping area of Ilfracombe can be found in the High Street and Portland Street situated just off Hillsborough Road. Amenities include a post office, pharmacy, hairdressers, bakers, banks and a supermarket. There is also a library, leisure centre, cinema and theatre in the local area.
