Takeaway Sri Lanken curry on the beach watching the sunset? Perfect. Bring your own wine. Not the best kept secret - so go early!

City/town information

Old seaside town - shabby in parts but with some lovely Victorian architecture, nice walks and shale beaches. Visit the harbour, Damian Hirst's Verity, the (tiny but endearing) Aquarium and walk up the Capstone. Take a fishing trip from the harbour or catch the ferry to Lundy Island. Find some nice galleries, and craft shops in Fore Street and down by the Harbour and all your necessary food shopping in the High street (great homemade pies and pastys from Mike Turton's butchers and homemade chocolate from the Ilfracombe Chocolate Emporium)

Lovely coastal village with a number of pubs, a takeaway fish and chip shop, tea rooms and small grocery shop. A nice walk from Lee via the Coastal path. Small museum worth a visit.
