Ilfracombe Hotels and Holidays - Ilfracombe Tourist Information Guide.
Ilfracombe sits on the steep hillsides of the North Devon coast overlooking the Bristol Channel just over 220 miles from London (about 4.5 hours drive) and just under 200 miles from Birminham (about 3.75 hours drive). this attractive town has been a popular destination since Victorian times as the many guest houses and hotels can attest to, although a few now have been converted to apartments.
Ilfracombe is a delightful place for a weekend break or a base for a longer holiday to explore the beautiful Devon countryside and coast. Quiet breaks can be had in the winter months and the town gets busier from Easter onwards through to the end of September.
The most popular activity is to wander around the old harbour with its mix of yachts and fishing boats moored permanently there (although many are taken out for the winter), this throngs with visitors all keen to take in the sea air and frequent the many bars and restaurants.
