The West Country region
North Devon is a supberb holiday destination with an exceptional combination of sandy beaches and rugged coastline, delightful market towns and villages full of olde world charm.
The rolling hils and wooded valleys of the Devonshire countryside and the stunning scenery of the Exmoor National Park offer a rich variety of landscapes for walkers and cyclists alike. Nearby, the miles of golden sandy beaches and secluded coves along the coastline provide world renowned surfing and relaxation for those who just want to unwind in a good book or at the end of a kite!
The picturesque village of Berrynarbor is an ideal centre for exploring North Devon. It has won many awards in both the "Britain in Bloom" and "Best Kept Village in Devon" competitions. The attractive well kept gardens and floral displays are outstanding and led to us being in the finals of the Royal Horticultural Society national awards.
Quaint cottages and narrow streets, together with the 15th Century Manor Hall, and 12th Century Church, add to the rural charm of the village and the traditional pub is a popular place for eating out. There is ample free car parking and easy access from the A399.
On the coast at Berrynarbor lies the pretty cove of Watermouth, with its gently shelving shoreline and many rock pools. This naturally sheltered harbour provides moorings for pleasure craft and forms part of the Voluntary Marine Nature Reserve, which runs along the length of coastline from Ilfracombe to Combe Martin.
Watermouth's other main attraction is Watermouth Castle, one of the largest family tourist attractions in North Devon. Based in and around a castle, there are displays, exhibits and attractions for all age ranges.
Broadsands Beach and cove 1.5 miles away is a beautiful sandy cove surrounded by high cliffs. Many steep steps lead down to the sheltered beach but it is well worth the effort. A good spot for sea fishing, rock pooling or swimming.
Each Spring Bank Holiday the village of Combe Martin holds the " Hunting of the Earl of Rone Festival", a re-enactment of an ancient legend. Today locals dressed as grenadiers, drummers and musicians form a parade led by a Hobby Horse to hunt out the Earl, who rides backwards on a donkey. The Earl is shot by the grenadiers, revived by the Hobby Horse, remounted on his donkey, before being eventually thrown into the sea.
Another annual event is the "Strawberry Fair", held at the end of June, to celebrate the strawberry season. Strawberries have been grown in the region for centuries and today there are a number of "pick your own" farms which allow visitors to gather their own fruit.
Surfing, windsurfung and swimming at Woolacombe, Staunton and Croyde
•18 hole golf course within 3 miles with beautiful sea views.
•Cinema, theatre and indoor swimming pool at Ilfracombe.
•Coarse fishing and sea fishing around the coast.
•Lovely coastal, country and moorland walking and cycling routes.
•A wonderful variety of bird life and wildlife is to be found in the area - especially in our valley.
.Gardens open to the public include: Rosemoor, Marwood, Arlington Court and Broomhill sculpture gardens

"Beautiful and tranquil location"
My boyfriend and I stayed here in May this year, and when we arrived Wendy met us with a warm welcome and showed us to the cottage. Firstly I'd like to say how lovely Wendy and her husband are; there if you would like a chat or any advice but respectful of your privacy.
The cottage itself was fab, we both loved it, and the extra touches were so wonderful - the welcome hamper, torch for your walk home if you wander off of an evening, and even a "bat-o-meter" (as we were calling it!!).
Cottage is completely kitted out with everything you need and more. The views are outstanding and just over the road we spent a lazy afternoon with a picnic blanket next to the stream with our books.
There is a lovely walk from the cottage to Combe Martin, took us about half an hour - 40 minutes at a steady pace. The views there are gorgeous and we'd definitely recommend the wander over. Be warned there's a steep(ish) hill on your walk back, luckily for me I had a willing boyfriend who give me a piggy back on the way up it!!
If you have the chance Chambercombe Manor is worth a visit - very interesting and a short drive away from the cottage.
The weather wasn't amazing whilst we were staying at Pink Heather, but we had so much fun and felt very peaceful staying there that the weather didn't matter!
We would more than recommend The Terrace Tapas Bar in Ilfracombe for an evening out. Amazing food, wine, and people. Pubs all throughout the town are fab. Definitely would not recommend the local pub in Berrynarbor for the food, really really disappointed with it, however it's a lovely place for a few drinks and to learn about the village history.
If you want a night out in Ilfracombe there are a couple of taxi firms in town, so if you Google you'll find them; we paid £20 to get into town early evening and back late that night.

"Lovely, little cottage in such a pretty and peaceful valley, very close to many local attractions."
Very well equipped, with a high standard of cleanliness and furnishings. The goody basket was a lovely touch. The owner very kindly washed and hung out our laundry for us. Considerate notes left with instructions we might need for everything. Lots of brochures, maps and books. The only draw-back is that the stairs up to the cottage (through the delightful garden!) would present problems for those with mobility difficulties.
