Ilfracombe is known as the Jewel of the North Devon Coast. Nestled between the Exmoor National Park, and the the Golden Coast with it’s Atlantic surf, it is the perfect base for a North Devon holiday.
Ilfracombe offers spectacular coastal scenery, seaside fun, rural tranquility and Victorian charm. It is a remarkable location for family holidays, high or low level activity breaks, romantic getaways, or best of all, a mixture of all of the above.
This is a coastal town, with a wonderful natural harbour and quay. There is an interesting blend of independent shops and grand Victorian architecture, yet there is a new contemporary feel emerging with trendy restaurants, galleries, and the Landmark Theatre. The many pubs, restaurants and shops that surround the quay create a friendly continental atmosphere.
Also, Ilfracombe is a great base for some of the finest walking country in England. From a gentle walk around Capstone Hill, the famous Tarka trail, the rugged North Devon coastal path or the tranquility of the river valleys and moorland hills of the Exmoor National Park you will find the scenery spectacular.
Ilfracombe offers a number of wonderful beaches, including the award-winning Tunnels beach, but in addition, you are just a short drive from the beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde, with miles of golden sand and the excitement of the Atlantic surf.
