Nearest beach

Welcombe Mouth Beach (3 ¾ miles)

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.

Nearest walk

Hartland Quay Circular (2 ½ miles)

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.

Nearest town

Hartland (1 ¾ miles)

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.

Also nearby

Northcott Mouth Beach (8 ¾ 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.

Hartland Quay Hotel (2 ½ miles)

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.

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!

RHS Rosemoor (15 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.

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.
