About this location

The Devon region

A few minutes from the centre of Ilfracombe by car or bus are the spectacular sandy beaches and dunes of Woolacombe, Croyde Bay and Saunton Sands. The whole area is a mecca for surfing and is a children's paradise, where they will amuse themselves safely for hours building sandcastles, flying kites or playing in the shallow breakers.

Ilfracombe is ideally situated for you to explore the spectacular coastline and the delightful moorland reaches of Exmoor with its rolling hills and quaint villages; to the east are the unique villages of Lynton and Lynmouth with it's cliff top railway, and to the west the delights of Clovelly, Appledore, Hartland and the market town of Barnstaple with its famous Pannier Market and Butchers Row.

Find time to explore some of the local attractions - within easy reach you will find romantic gardens, exciting castles, beautiful villages and fascinating National Trust properties. Walking books and maps can be purchased from the Tourist Information Centre before your visit.

Ilfracombe Harbour

Ilfracombe is a small seaside town in North Devon, the South-West of England. It is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to the National Park of Exmoor where the Bristol Channel meets the Atlantic Ocean. A few miles from Woolacombe beach and the stunning South West Coast Path runs right through Ilfracombe.

It is now the home of Verity - A 65 foot bronze-clad sculpture by world famous artist Damien Hirst, on loan to the town for the next 20 years and now proudly in position at Ilfracombe Harbour.
