  • At any time of the day there is movement. It is pleasant to the tides; These have a large height difference. On one side is the port bordered with shops and restaurants. Nice view of the rocks and the sea.

  • Everyone mingling together in a happy colourful throng, tourists and fishing vessels together. Shops to suit all purse and tastes. Sandy beach, fish and chips with fish fresh caught off the trawler. S...  read more »
  • Always something going on. The local cafes are excellent, the fudge shop on the quay is yummy and a walk to the harbour is very picturesque, often with visiting boats. At low tide the harbour is sand and a nice walk, dog friendly town too! Often there are Victorian and food festivals / events - check the town website for details.
  • 'VERITY' Stands proudly at the harbour entrance, with many people visiting just to see, stand next to 'VERITY'. After watching the sunset from up on 'EXMOOR', spending the night under the stars, waking to freezing fog and frost, I made my way to 'ILFRACOMBE' which is photographically 'RUGGED', with this ruggedness extending all the way along the north coast to 'MINEHEAD', ('Butlins Holiday Park'), most being the perimeter of 'EXMOOR NATIONAL PARK', which has some of the highest cliffs in the 'UK'. And, south to 'SAUNTON SANDS', with scenic views along the way, with 'VERY STEEP' roads up to and down from 'EXMOOR'. Walk the coast path, the lanes at 'ILFRACOMBE', for a taste of this 'DRAMATIC SCENERY' and discover the 'AQUARIUM', near where 'VERITY' stands proudly......
  • Had a great week..stayed at admirals house...right on the harbour. Only downsides....Some shops/bars etc not open on mondays/Tuesdays!
  • Great harbour to explore, good mix of shops & local landmarks our kids loved it.
  • Just such a beautiful place, and stunning scenery.
