Nearest pub

The Old Sawmills Inn (¼ mile)

A great family eatery offering outside seating in summer and a warming log fire to keep you toasty in winter. Food is creative and inspirational and the menu offers a wide variety of options including tapas, nachos, steaks and salads. "Big Bertha" the charcoal fired oven helps out with the cooking!

Very disappointing

We went for Sunday lunch and all they offered was a couple of different sandwiches, a small portion of macaroni and a side of chips all served on cardboard dishes with wooden cutlery.

Nearest beach

Rockham Bay (6 miles)

One of the few hidden little coves on this stretch of coastline, Rockham is also not the easiest beach to get to. A bit of a walk plus three flights of steps are off-putting for many, so if you’re after a bit of peace and don’t mind making the effort, this is a great choice.

Nearest walk

Combe Martin to Great Hangman (1 ¾ miles)

This route is along the highest of the sea cliffs in the Exmoor National Park. Starting at Combe Martin take the coast path around Wild Pear Beach, then a stiff climb to Little Hangman (715 feet high). Climb on - more gradual this time - up to 1046 feet and the summit of Great Hangman to get the best of the panorama across Combe Martin Bay.

The countryside is breathtaking and a real must to visit. Quaint shops, great pubs and beautiful walks through all kinds of terrain. Dogs are clearly very welcome which is a rarity in other areas of the south west.

Some of the finest coastal scenery in England, do not miss it! The Valley of the Rocks, a little further east, is particularly dramatic.

Nearest town

Ilfracombe (2 miles)

One of the most popular seaside resorts in Victorian times, Ilfracombe has recently undergone something of a renaissance, with some of the most elegant Victorian architecture having been restored. Damien Hirst’s new restaurant here has put the spotlight on the town and drawn food lovers from afar. Head down to the old harbour for the atmosphere, independent shops and boat trips over to Lundy Island.

Quads and horses

Something for everyone, some on the horses some on the quads, but both lots had fun.

Combe Martin (2 ½ miles)

Combe Martin is on the edge of Exmoor and claims to have the longest village street in England. Visit the Pack of Cards Inn, built to celebrate a large win at cards by George Lay in 1626; it has 52 windows, one for each card in the pack, and four floors, each with 13 doors. The beach is perfect for the whole family with rock pools, cliffs, caves and pebbles plus lots of soft sand when the tide is out.

Great for kayaking

Combe Martin is an attractive little bay and we had a great kayak tour with Surfside Kayaks. The Pack of Cards Inn is worth a visit and has an interesting history

The Rock Inn Georgeham (7 ¼ miles)

A 17th century village pub offering freshly cooked food served in either the fireside bar or conservatory. Food is sourced locally including pork from rare breed Engish pigs and free range chickens who provide eggs for both the kitchen and for guests to buy.
