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.

Nearby beach

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Nearby walk

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.

Nearby town

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.

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.

Fabulous place, outstanding gardens

A return visit for us.
An exceptional day out if you love nature and gardens. We were lucky our visit coincided with the Festival of Apples in October. Beautiful place and everything offered is of the highest standard.

Fanstastic

Spent the best part of the day exploring the walks around the estate and through the fabulous formal and informal gardens, plenty of seating in the grounds to appreciate the flowers, plants and trees, choice of refreshment options from snacks to restaurant, a very good shop and parking very easy, worth the effort to visit.

Gorgeous day out

As an RHS member and regular visit to Hyde Hall I’ve been keen to visit the other gardens so when on holiday nearby, a visit to Rosemoor was a must. It is truly fabulous, we visited on a beautiful, sunny, summer day so we saw it at it’s best but I can see how there is interest whatever time of year you visit.

The staff are friendly and we received a great welcome and explanation of the layout when we arrived, such a lovely touch.

The garden is split into two parts, Lady Anne’s garden which has beautiful trees and planting best seen at a gentle stroll and the more formal gardens laid our directly near the entrance which are also stunning. The cool garden was gorgeous especially on a hot day.

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.

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.

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.

A beautiful, unspoilt fishing village enveloped in green countryside. From Clovelly it is easy to take a boat trip across to Lundy Island, a pristine little wilderness just off the coast. Unusually, this village is privately owned and has a modest entrance fee to help maintain its upkeep.

Historical but a bit of a rip off?

We visited Clovelly as they were promoting their crab and lobster festival. Great we thought - some lovely local produce to sample. We joined a large queue to pay £5.95 to get in to the village. That was a surprise. We walked the half-mile down an extremely steep and cobbled slope to the quay which had a handful of tiny stalls selling cupcakes, stir fry and local crafts. No lovely local crab or lobster in sight. It's a tiny place so became packed very quickly and made it difficult to get around. We left pretty quickly.

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!
