Very disappointing

The food was pretty poor, salmon overcooked, and the steak that was ordered 'rare' was well done. We were put in the restaurant which is in an adjoining part of the pub and completely soulless. The table was very sticky, it all felt very unhygienic.

Nice easy going pub.

We liked this pub because it was completely unpretentious and easy going. The food (we had burgers) was tasty. The staff were helpful and friendly.

Nearest beach

Eliza Beach (9 miles)

With the top part of the beach being shingle, the lower part is a complete contrast with fine yellow sand. There are many rock outcrops that become exposed when the tide recedes.

Nearest walk

Upcott Circuit (100 yards)

Take in the delightful countryside around Sutcombe on this gentle 2k ramble. Starting from the centre of the village, follow country lanes and footpaths over fields. The attached map, courtesy of osmaps.com shows the way.

Nearest town

Holsworthy (4 ¾ miles)

Holsworthy is a centre for agriculture, with one of the largest livestock markets in the south west each Wednesday and Thursday - a lively occasion, well worth a visit. An attractive town, it has a large indoor swimming pool useful for the children if the weather turns inclement.

RHS Rosemoor (11 miles)

Set deep in the north Devon countryside, The Rosemoor estate was once the home of Lady Anne Palmer. Lady Anne developed a passion for plants when she met noted plantsman Colllingwood Ingram while recuperating from measles in Spain. Over the next 30 years, she travelled the world to collect specimens for her garden, which she gave to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988. The estate now comprises 65 acres of land, which includes rose gardens, a winter garden, a fruit and vegetable garden, a formal garden, woodlands, and many stream and lakeside plantings, making Rosemoor an enchanting place to visit whatever the season.

Gorgeous day out

As an RHS member and regular visit to Hyde Hall I’ve been keen to visit the other gardens so when on holiday nearby, a visit to Rosemoor was a must. It is truly fabulous, we visited on a beautiful, sunny, summer day so we saw it at it’s best but I can see how there is interest whatever time of year you visit.

The staff are friendly and we received a great welcome and explanation of the layout when we arrived, such a lovely touch.

The garden is split into two parts, Lady Anne’s garden which has beautiful trees and planting best seen at a gentle stroll and the more formal gardens laid our directly near the entrance which are also stunning. The cool garden was gorgeous especially on a hot day.

Roses Galore!

The rose collection - one of the largest in the West Country - is very impressive. In full bloom in the summer, the scent of over 2,000 flowers is quite sensational. The Rose Weekend, held in June, was very informative, with advice on growing your own, as well as walks and activities for children.

Northcott Mouth Beach (9 ¼ miles)

Visit this unspoiled beach and fall in love with the breathtaking views. If you head to Northcott Mouth Beach at low tide you may be able to see the remnants of the steamship ‘Belem’ which ran aground here in 1917. At high tide, you can take in the stunning panoramas from the clifftops surrounding the beach. A secluded haven as it is, there are no facilities nearby.

Excellent beach

A wonderful beach and much quieter than Bude. An added bonus is the Rustic Tea Garden which is a lovely cafe just behind the beach. You can eat in their lovely garden or take away back to the beach. Great hot dogs, jacket potatoes and very yummy cakes.

Dragon Archery (6 miles)

This fun day out gives you the opportunity to learn the art of archery. Then put your newly taught skill to the test on dinosaurs, wolves and armoured knights! Much more than just target shooting.

North Devon's Best Kept Secret

An outstanding morning or afternoon out, whether you are trying archery for the first time or are more experienced (we keep coming back). Andy and the team provide excellent personalised guidance and equipment as you transition through the different themed ranges, leading up to the ultimate Dragon Slayer challenge. In these times of Covid concerns, it is so reassuring the team takes health

Fantastic Family Fun!

Dragon Archery is the place to be if you want to try archery for the first time or if you are more experienced. Great challenges suitable for all ages from 8+. Really friendly encouraging team giving one to one coaching to help you get the most out of your experience. Suitable for all weathers...we went on a very wet and windy day in October! Only advice is BOOK EARLY as this attraction is very very popular!! If you are lucky enough to go along, you will see why.

A 3 hour archery session which involves shooting dinosaurs, amongst other things not just targets. I thoroughly enjoyed this and I wasn't expecting to. All equipment was supplied, and we were taught very well how to use it. Rather than just having targets to aim at, there are a number of themed areas including dinosaurs and orcs. The time passed very quickly and owners were very friendly and helpful.

Fabulous meal!

We had a fabulous meal! I had a spinach and chick pea curry and my husband had a burger. Both meals were fabulous, the children loved the kids menu and we all devoured our desserts!! Such a pretty village, we felt very COVID secure and wished we had time to come back again for another meal. We'll definitely be back again when we're in the area.
