Instead, grab your mates and head for the stunning Devonshire town of Ilfracombe. The ideal spot for a hen or stag do (a tame one, anyway) or just a bunch of mates looking to get away, these three cottages offer the chance for you to have your own private group accommodation.

It’s so remote you can’t even get mobile phone reception, meaning you can party all night without disturbing the neighbours (unless you count sheep). With a retro games room (foosball and pool tables and, er, top trumps) and gorgeous views, you need never leave, but if you do, the pretty town centre, with a harbour and plenty of pubs, is a 10-minute drive away.

Rooms You may have to draw straws as some are much better than others, but you can sleep up to 14 across the three cottages.bill please From £25pppn.
