Starting a weeks holiday in Cornwall from Bournemouth and ending in Ilfracombe. Ilfracombe is a gorgeous place. Loads to do and plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from. We were lucky enough to stay at the ocean backpackers. We were on the top floor with a large kitchen shared with others. 2 bathrooms to choose from, making it hassle free for us to get ready to go out. Wi . Fi access is an added bonus along with a great communal lounge and dining area. Computer available to use. The room had a fantastic view and we couldn't be closer to the harbour were we took a great boat trip out. A hidden gem for accommodation against some stiff competition. I will definitely be back and any friends looking for a budget place to all stay together I totally recommend staying here.
