About Ilfracombe Focus


Ilfracombe Focus is a long-running journal in the town. It has very recently gone through some significant changes brought about by the Pandemic.

The magazine is now managed and owned by the editor, Gudrun Limbrick, who brings many years of magazine editorial, writing and publishing experience.


"My own personal ambition for Ilfracombe Focus is to see it showcase the best of what Ilfracombe has to offer holiday-makers and day-trippers. Ilfracombe is a fantastic place to have a staycation with so much to entertain, amaze and inspire visitors. Focus, with its positive stance and interest in all that is creative, adventurous and entreprenerial, is perfectly placed to promote our town".


Gudrun is happy to dress up as a reindeer when it is necessary for local fundraising! 

An online resource

The intial plan is for Focus to be available online only. This means that it is accessible for people who are planning their holiday before they actually arrive here. 


I will leave the decision about printing physical copies of the magazine until everything is all a bit more settled. The last thing I want to do is to go to local businesses to ask for money for advertising when things have been so difficult financially.

I'd love your ideas!
