The area around Welcombe, to the West, has some stunningly beautiful walks where one can find both tranquillity and inspiration. Visit Hartland Abbey and come upon the cobbled cliff side 'film set' village of Clovelly; continue on to the long sandy beach at Westward Ho!, the fascinating old harbour towns of Barnstaple and Bideford, both steeped in history and standing in traditional rivalry at the mouths of the rivers Taw and Torridge with Lundy Island beyond.
