Places to Stay

Ilfracombe, North Devon

Ilfracombe is framed by precipitous cliffs, elegant town houses, golf greens and a promenade strung with twinkling lights, it's a place that might seem pickled in a bygone age. But look beneath the surface and you'll find there's another side to Ilfracombe – it's a favourite hang-out for the artist Damien Hirst, and it's now home to some top-notch eateries. Ilfracombe more than deserves a look. Here we feature a hand picked collection of self-catering holiday cottages in and around the North Devon town of Ilfracombe.
