Ilfracombe is at the centre of one of the most popular holiday regions in the UK and is where the rolling hills of Exmoor meet the dramatic cliffs and beaches of the stunning North Devon coast.
There couldn't be more choice of outdoor activities and everything is within a short walk or drive. Surfing beaches, championship golf courses, river and sea fishing, sailing, walking, cycling, climbing, coasteering, horse riding, shooting, kite surfing, scuba diving...the list goes on and on.
Then again, you can ignore all these and just chill. In a quiet, secluded cove, in a cosy country pub or in a modern bar overlooking the bobbing yachts in the harbour.
