Lovely village on the coast

Ilfracombe is a little seaside town on the north coast of Devon near Barnstaple. It has a small harbour, surrounded by steep cliffs. The town is hilly and the natural landmark of Hillsborough Hill dominates the harbour and is the site of an Iron Age Celtic fortress. A seasonal foot passenger ferry service runs from the harbour to Lundy Island and The Balmoral, The Waverley and pleasure boats cross to Porthcawl near Swansea in the summer months.
