Perfect for… traditional seaside atmosphere, one-of-a-kind coastal treasures and award-winning beaches
This pretty Victorian resort hugs the cliffs of a natural harbour on the North Devon Coast.
Ilfracombe’s colourful waterfront villas are a welcoming sight and its streets are well-known for the many lovely flowers that line them. The town rose to fame as a seaside resort during the 19th century, thanks to its unique Tunnels Beaches. This set of award-winning beaches and a remarkable tidal bathing pool are reached via a network of skilfully hand-carved tunnels, all of which still exist to enjoy today.
Admire the natural beauty of the South West Coast Path or take in the sea views from the peaceful, clifftop heights of Hillsborough Nature Reserve. All that sea air can work up quite an appetite, and Ilfracombe’s quayside restaurants, cafés and tearooms are just the place for a delicious bite.
It only takes a moment to enjoy a bespoke list of recommended holidays made just for you.
