A stunning location with great food

We had a lovely meal here on our last night. The Inn is about a 15 minute drive from Middle Dean on some very narrow and winding roads. It is a stunning building in a beautiful setting. The interior decor is a bit disappointing but the food and service were excellent, with good vegan options.

Nearest beach

Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe (7 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

Cherryford Hill (2 ¾ miles)

Not for the faint hearted, this bracing six mile walk takes you around the rocky headland high above the sea, through ancient woodland and then up onto Martinhoe Common. The breathtaking coastal waterfall should make the climb worth it!

Nearest town

Combe Martin (2 ¾ 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.

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 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.

Exmoor Zoo - rare animals

I visited this zoo on a rather damp misty day and there were very few people until it brightened up in the afternoon.The animals are nearly all endangered species some of which I had never heard of before. As most of them are small the area to walk around is not huge - there are no elephants, lions, camels etc. There are about 35 cages and a signed route so you don't miss any. There are talks/ feeding and some hands on every half hour but that means doubling back to and fro if you want to do them all. I enjoyed feeding and stroking a wallaby with a joey in her pouch and stroking a snake. There are some birds and off site they were rearing 4 rare parrots to be returned to the Amazon. There is an excellent very large covered area with picnic tables , a snack shack for drinks and a rather basic cafe. Extremely small number of toilets! There are some well known animals -as well as the wallabies there are meerkats, cheetahs, gibbons and some rare tiny marmozets in an indoor area.

Dean Riding Stables (200 yards)

Close to the coast and within Exmoor National Park, there are plenty of options for picturesque rides from these stables.

Keypitts Stables 'N' Quads (5 ½ miles)

Quad bike courses for children as young as six years old, a 4x4 off-road course, paintball and pony trekking.
