The Devon region

Devon has such a diverse and beautiful natural environment combined with a mild climate that it's not hard to see why visitors return here year after year.

The coastline offer miles of sweeping golden beaches featuring some top surf spots and dramatic cliff-top walks. The Exmoor National Park provides perfect opportunities for getting active in wild, unspoilt open expanses and the quintessential rolling Devonshire countryside is an idyllic patchwork of fields, farms and overgrown hedgerows teeming with wildlife.

Charming towns, quaint old villages and busy fishing harbours are just the thing for sampling a traditional British seaside holiday. There are also picturesque gardens, castles and stately home to explore.


Ilfracombe is a traditional holiday resort positioned between the Exmoor National Park to the east and the glorious beaches of North Devon's golden coast to the west.

White washed houses, grand villas and an annual Victorian celebration affirm Ilfracombe's timeless elegance with a choice of shops, restaurants and the Landmark Theatre.

The area around Ilfracombe harbour is a hive of activity where you can catch a boat to Lundy Island or join a fishing expedition. For a traditional day at the sideside, visit Ilfracome's Tunnels Beaches - four tunnels hand-carved in the 1820's lead to a safe seawater swimming pool, ideal for children and rock pools teaming with sealife.

"A1. Very enjoyable holiday."

The service offered was courteous & friendly from beginning to end. The property could only be described as excellent. We arrived at night, so on awakening the next morning were delighted with the view. A few hundred yards from town down a steep hill, with the seafront about the same distance beyond that. We had a lovely week and would happily recommend to others. Thank-you.

We are on our way home from a lovely stay at on the rocks. The apartment was very clean and up to date. Location was great (even if up a steep hill!) Views are amazing. There were some lovely touches … More

"Imaculate apartment with sea views."

Everything you need in a holiday rental. Very clean, tastefully decorated with games, books and DVDs to keep you entertained. Large windows overlook the town of Ilfracombe and the sea. Situated on a steep hill so not a place for anyone who is not fully fit, but that would be true for most of the town.

"Superb apartment in perfect location"

On the Rocks is perfectly located in a beautiful Georgian House set away from the main drag. It's easily in walking distance of the town and harbour (be prepared for a steep hill) but incredibly quiet and with a lovely sea view.
The apartment itself has been tastefully decorated and comes well equipped with superior quality kitchen equipment, DVD player, Wifi, Ipod docking station and the like.
The cupboards yielded a pleasing selection of jigsaw puzzles and DVDs - all current and popular choices.
I'm in my 40s, my dad's in his 60s and my daughter is 6. All of us loved it and all of us hope to visit again very soon.
We know Ilfracombe very well and consider this Georgian Terrace to be the best location in town.

"Lovely stay"

On the Rocks is a beautiful apartment situated on a hill overlooking the coastline of Ilfracombe. Very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could hope for. I stayed with my 18 month old son and a friend, and family members came to visit for supper and in the evenings. A lovely apartment which is well looked after. The communications from the owners were very pleasant and it was a well orchestrated stay. I stayed for only 2 nights but the owners kindly arranged an appropriate price to reflect this. I will be recommending this apartment to family and friends.
