Ilfracoombe is one of the leading holiday resorts in Devon. Situated on a dramatic stretch of the coastline, there is everything you need here for a proper British holiday; shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, gift shops and sea swimming in the stunning Victorian tunnel beaches - hand carved tunnels leading out to the beach and a tidal bathing pool.
Family adventures are in abundance here at Ilfracoombe. Discover the creepy artefacts at the Ilfracoombe museum, which contains treasures (and monstrosities!) from all over the globe. If this isn't to your taste, the famous Landmark Theatre has performances and exhibitions throughout the year, and the Ilfracoombe Art and Craft Society gallery has free displays from Easter to the end of November.
For sea-farers there is masses to do. Take a boat trip out to see the puffins on Lundy Island, try mackerel or deep-sea fishing, a sea-life safari or even scuba diving if you are feeling brave! If you want to see the creatures of the deep without leaving dry land, a trip to the Ilfracoombe Aquarium is a great family day out.
There is a real old fashioned charm here and plenty to do, so don't miss out on this gem when you are exploring Devon!
