We also have many costal paths and walks to be explored. The Famous Damien Hurst statue "Verity" standing proud down at the harbour along side The Quay tea room. The harbour also has many other activities going on including daily fishing trips, the sea safari is a MUST for anyone that loves the water and fast boats ! Or there is the Ilfracombe Princess who offer daily trips out and is a little slower!! If you're really lucky you might get too see the dolphins and seals. !! There are also trips available over to "LUNDY ISLAND". There is also Ilfracombe aquarium with a tea room/cafe. We also highly recommend hiring bikes from Fremington and cycling the "Tarka Trail" something we do at least twice a year!!

Best UK holiday break

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location in a great coastal town. The apartment was ideal for our family stay, great facilities to cater for our needs. Our children, 3 and 7, loved the DVD’s, toys and games consoles for evening entertainment. Kitchen was great for self catering To keep costs down. Comfy beds and couldn’t ask for a better uk holiday break. We’ll be returning!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse apartment was perfect for me and my partner, beautiful and modern. Some family members came and joined us during our stay and there was plenty of room for all of us as it’s so spacious. The location is fantastic, right on the front and close to plenty of shops for supplies. We couldn’t of asked for more, had a brilliant time and will definitely be returning when the weathers better!
