Ilfracombe, 01271 868090
A reasonable curry, having said that I have been spoilt by the quality of a local curry restaurant before moving to Smythen Farm Holiday Cottages. The food tends to be Bangledesh oriented.
Worth a visit also is available when other restaurants are closed. Good for take aways.

Situated next to Woolacombe Beach, Barracombe Beach Cafe is a real jewel in the Woolacombe crown.
The cafe is a typical beach Cafe during the day and it offers an array of sandwiches, coffee, tea , crisps , canned drinks and Ice creams etc. The cafe at night time then comes into life serving good quality Thai food. A choice of chicken or vegetarian tends to be the limited choice but is served on china plates and is really good value.
An evening on Baracombe beach, enjoying with Thai food with your family whilst the sun goes down is a wonderful way to spend an evening and is a favourite of ours.
The Beach Cafe doesn’t sell alcohol so take your own and glasses- don’t forget the cork screw.
An adults portion is £8.50 and a child portion £5.25

We had a brilliant week here at Smythen Farm, with beautiful views. The children enjoyed the swimming pool which was lovely and warm. The play area was a great hit as was the visit from Bill and family to drop off Easter Eggs. We were made to feel very welcome by Bill and Catherine and nothing was too much trouble.
Watermouth Castke was a good day out and you can return for £2.50 each. Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park was a good day out. My favourite da

The beaches at Woolacombe were beautiful and the girls went on a beach hack from Mullacott riding stables which was fantastic. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the horses were all very well behaved and suitable for
