On our doorstep! Take a walk around or up Capstone Hill for fab views of the sea. Also a very scenic way to get to the West side of town and the Landmark Theatre

Minutes from the flat. This lovely little chapel is def worth the walk up the hill. Also a great spot to enjoy a stunning view of the harbour.

Ilfracombe Eating and Drinking Best Fish and Chips

We have tried most of them - this one is our favourite although sadly closed in winter. The Ilfracombe fryer is also pretty good but again closed in winter. Maddie’s isn’t bad, fish and service good but chips can be a bit greasy. Lynbay can be good but is inconsistent!
Good batter - chips not greasy - rich and tasty curry sauce.

Ilfracombe - Restaurants

Two mins from the flat. Great Italian - really lovely pizza and tiramisu. Can ring and order takeaway to collect. Pizzas not huge so order some sides if you are really hungry.

Ilfracombe - Cafes

Lovely little tea room - fab cream tea - fresh warm scones (really good but not big!) and home made jam. Great breakfasts with good quality ingredients and home made sourdough. Can also order sourdough bread of various types for collection

Ilfracombe Parks

This park is a little known gem, with a boating lake, sensory garden, tennis courts, tea room (currently closed) and children’s play area. It’s a lovely place to wander round, listening to the sound of running water wherever you go.
