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!

Nearest beach

Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe (2 ¼ miles)

Accessed via a series of four man-made tunnels carved through the cliffs, Tunnels Beaches near Ilfracombe are truly unique. Created in the 1820s, the tunnels lead visitors out onto sand and shingle beaches, complete with a Victorian sea pool. Sheltered by the cliffs, the beaches afford beautiful views and special atmosphere. A landscaped garden lends itself perfectly to picnics in the sun and there is even sun bed and wetsuit hire available. A cafe serves refreshments and lifeguards are on duty in the summer. A fee applies.

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.
