The West Country region

North Devon has lots to offer anyone wishing to relax or enjoy a more active holiday.

The golden sandy beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe are a haven for those wishing to surf the wave or simply lie back and relax. All of which can be reached within 25 minutes by car.

Exmoor National Park is also a short drive away and provides some fabulous, rugged, natural scenery to enjoy on foot or by car. There are many fantastic walks that can be enjoyed within Exmoor and in and around Berrynarbor, also providing plenty of opportunity for any keen bird spotters. The magnificent South West Coast Path can be picked up one mile from Poppies at Watermouth Harbour, and provides a splendid coastal walk.

The nearby towns of Combe Martin, Ilfracombe and Barnstaple offer some splendid Victorian architecture, lovely boutique shops, historic marketplaces, fine dining restaurants and characterful pubs - all of which are within a 10 mile radius of Poppies.

Combe Martin

The beautiful village of Berrynarbor has won several awards for it's splendour. Being "Best Kept Village" and "Britain in Bloom" winner, Berrynarbor has some delightful gardens, historic buildings and lush countryside to enjoy. Ye Olde Globe is the quant village pub, offers a lovely menu and a very pleasant pint, and is only 200m from Poppies.

Combe Martin, having the longest high street of any village in the country, has much history and tradition to offer. Several fantastic pubs, a number of fine shops, and numerous annual events such as The Strawberry Fayre, Summer Carnival Week and The Hunting of the Earl of Rhone, can all be enjoyed in Combe Martin.

Further along the coast lies Ilfracombe, a Victorian town with a beautiful harbour. There are many quaint shops along the high street, plenty of lovely pubs, the Landmark theatre, the harbour, (offering a variety of boat trips along the coast), a cliff top golf course - to name but a few of the attractions on offer in Ilfracombe.
