Ilfracombe has seen settlers lay their roots in this coastal dwelling since the Iron Age, and its popularity for holidays is no surprise. Ilfracombe boasts spectacular, almost Mediterranean-esque beaches, especially in the sunshine. With such stunning surroundings, there are few better places to spend a last minute break. Snaptrip has beautiful late availability accommodation with plenty of deals to help you get away.
This North Devon town has rejuvenated its image as an English seaside destination and home to the award-winning Landmark Theatre and Tunnels beaches. The scenic National Cycle Network Route to Woolacombe and The South West Coast Path from Minehead to Poole, pass through Ilfracombe.
Traditional fish and chip restaurants and seaside souvenir shops give the quintessential air of an English seaside town. However, with the increased interest in surfing the Devonshire coast and the opening of restaurants including Damien Hirst’s hip hangout, The Quay, Ilfracombe is becoming more attractive to a younger crowd.
