Ilfracombe is a town on the North Devon coast built around a small harbour. This traditional seaside resort comes alive with colour in summer as the streets are decorated with fantastic floral displays and Ilfracombe has been given the Gold Award from Britain in Bloom three years running. Ilfracombe Cottage Holidays are perfect for couples or families wanting to visit the town and take in the wonderful scenery.
Cottages are available all year round and can be rented for a long weekend or for a longer period of time. They are reasonably priced and can sleep between two and eight people. The cottages come in various architectural styles from the traditional stone built to the modern and contemporary open plan. They are furnished and decorated to very high standards and they have every modern convenience to make this a very comfortable holiday.
Ilfracombe Cottage Holidays have something to meet everyone’s tastes. The town features an excellent high street with lots of independent shops and there is a regular farmers market held in the Lantern Community Centre. Around the harbour area is another set of shops, bars and restaurants giving it a bit of a continental feel. From the harbour you can take a trip out to Lundy Island and observe all the wildlife.
You will see Deer, Ponies, rare birds, Puffins, Seals and Dolphins. Back on shore and you are a short drive away from the golden beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde Bay and Saunton Sands. These beaches are fantastic for surfing and children love playing in the sand. A visit to the Tunnels is a must. A series of hand carved tunnels lead to secluded beaches and a tidal bathing pool.
Ilfracombe is a fantastic holiday destination and a cottage provides the ideal accommodation from which to go out and explore this wonderful place. Ilfracombe Cottage Holidays are a great way to spend quality time with your family and friends. You can spend a day sightseeing and participating in activities and the next, just relax in the comfort of the cottage and get some well deserved rest. This is a holiday where you can recharge your batteries and return home feeling completely rejuvenated.
