The loveliest town in North Devon. (And I'm not biased, unlike those people who live in Bideford or Barnstaple). They may
tell you that Bideford is the home port of the MS Oldenburg but most of its sailings go from
Ilfracombe, we have the better harbour. The Queen of Cornwall, Balmoral and
Waverley also sail from here.
There are many delightful walks around Ilfracombe. It is also on the Tarka Trail, which here
follows the route of the South West Coast Path.
