Ilfracombe travel guide from My Favourite Cottages

A bustling harbour town with gorgeous Victorian architecture lining its streets, Ilfracombe is a great holiday destination for those after a breath of fresh sea air. The winding high street is dotted with independent businesses, galleries, and cafes so you can enjoy some retail therapy and a coffee pitstop without going far. Home to many a fish and chip shop and ice cream parlours galore, the harbour has a great atmosphere. Wander down to the water’s edge where you can visit the aquarium, marvel at Damien Hirst’s ‘Verity’, and book on a sunset cruise or a fishing trip.

Sitting between a stretch of surfing hotspots and the magical Exmoor National Park, you don’t have to travel far to enjoy a family-friendly day on the beach or a romantic day exploring. Keep reading to see what Ilfracombe has to offer for guests of all ages.
