At the centre of the outstanding peninsula of Hartland, this traditional olde world inn overlooks the village square and serves great food sourced locally where possible and a wide range of real ales and fine wines. In the summer you can enjoy a meal in the beer garden.

Welcombe Mouth Beach is tucked over the Devon border just north of Bude. With unique rock features protruding from the sand, the secluded cove is best visited at low tide. Fairly difficult to find, Welcombe Mouth Beach offers peace and tranquillity in a beautiful setting.
Well worth the drive down a very narrow lane, but parking for not much more than 10-15 cars at the end. Waterfall, cliffs, rocks and sand at low water. We saw some surfing there in spite of rocks.
A four mile walk with varied terrain following wooded paths and the coast. Take a look at further details on the southwestcoastpath.org.uk website. You'll also find lots of other great walks in the area here.
Once a busy Georgian market town, Hartland is now a beautiful, peaceful idyll set in stunning surroundings. It’s a rare visitor who leaves without seeing Hartland Abbey; built 850 years ago, the Abbey is a magnificent residence (it is still a family home to this day) which exhibits a variety of architectural styles including Queen Anne and Regency. Hartland Quay, a short distance from the village, is known for the immense rock formations that rear out of the sea; storms battering the north Devon coast here are invariably a dramatic sight.
With stunning views over the ocean you can sit and enjoy a meal outside (weather permitting) or sit inside and warm up when it's inclement.
Enjoyed several visits here after walking the coastal pathway
Friendly staff serving fab food and beers
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.
Amazing dog friendly beach. Very clean and scenery amazing. Lifeguards present so makes you feel safe. There is the Rustic Tearooms nearby serving hot food and drinks. Only problem , no toilets!
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.
David Westcott and Alice Gare run the pottery and offer both earthenware and Raku pots to buy along with pottery courses.
Worth a trip for anyone interested in functional or decorative ceramics in refreshingly modern and usable designs. Mrs Potter, Alice is lovely and tolerated our 22 month old having a very close look/picking everything up!
These unique gardens include wild flowers, a riverside walk and an unusual bog garden. Catch the spectacular display of narcissi in spring when bluebells carpet the woods, or come in summer to see the rosebanks in full bloom. Treat yourself to an award-winning cream tea at the Docton Mill Tea Room, voted Best Cream Tea in Devon at the 2007 North Devon Food & Drink Awards, or try some of the local homegrown produce - the Brixham crab sandwiches and homemade chutneys are firm favourites. Open March to October.
Lovely, lush green gardens and restored old mill. It can be combined with a visit to Spekes Mouth waterfall and beach, less than a half hour walk from the gardens.
The bluebells are beautiful in spring. Don't miss out on the delicious cream teas.
Charming gardens at their best in spring with interesting water mill and great cream teas.
Set in stunning countryside, Hartland Abbey has a deer park within which peacocks, donkeys and guinea fowl roam and graze.
