The Devon region
North Devon is a stunning part of England featuring many surfing havens, sandy blue flag beaches, two moors (Dartmoor & Exmoor), miles of walks including the South-West Coast Path, cycle paths, top 100 golf courses including the oldest in England and much more.
There is lots to do within the local area including many beaches, cycle paths, coastal walks, gardens and other places of interest.
• The nearest beach, Westward Ho!, is only 2 ½ miles away and boasts 1 ½ miles of award winning Blue Flag sand, which it's held since 2003. A nominal parking charge of £3.50 is applicable from May through September, and free from October through April. The beach is dog friendly all year round..
• Our favourite beach is Saunton Sands; 20 miles away but well worth the drive. This privately owned 3 miles beach boasts the largest sand dune in England. The beach is popular with surfers, swimmers and allows dogs all year round. Take a surf lesson, rent a beach hut for the day or enjoy a leisurely lunch in one of the two cafes overlooking the beach.
• Croyde, 23 miles from Littleham, is just 3 miles further on from Saunton Sands, and has a small 0.4 mile long beach, and is extremely popular with surfers.
• Woolacombe, 25 miles from Littleham, is another 2 mile long beach again popular with surfers.
• Bude, 23 miles south, is a small but popular surfing beach.
• The Tarka Trail is a fantastic cycle path which utilises sections of old railway line running 30 miles from Braunton in the North to Meeth in the South. Bikes can be hired easily from Bideford Bicycle and Kayak Hire located on the East side of Bideford. From there visitors can cycle 16 miles North toward Braunton, or 14 miles South toward Meeth. As no cars are allowed, it is safe for cyclists of all ages, joggers and walkers.
• Royal North Devon Colf Club at Westward Ho! is the oldest golf course in England. The golf course is as tough as any of the UK's more famous links layouts and has recently been placed in Golf World 's "Top 100 Courses in the World" that a golfer “must play”.
• Saunton Golf Club boasts two Championship courses which have been listed in Golf World & Golf Monthly magazine's 100 Best Courses in the UK.
• Ilfracombe Golf Club, 26 miles from Littleham, boasts one of the most spectacular locations in the UK for an exhilarating round of golf. Situated on top of the rugged cliffs of the North Devon coast, every tee has an awe-inspiring view over the sea, from the Welsh Coast and Lundy Island, to as far as the eye can see on the Atlantic horizon
• Other courses within the local area are
Great Torrington Golf Club
Portmore Golf Park
Libbaton Golf Club
Willingcott Valley Golf Course
Places of Interest
• Clovelly is a privately owned village with only around 400 permanent residents. Clovelly has been associated with just three families since the middle of the 13th century, a period of nearly 800 years. Walk down the high street and tour a traditional fisherman's cottage. Enjoy an ice cream in the sun whilst sitting on the harbor wall. There is a land rover service to take you back to the car park if you don't fancy the walk back up.
• Exmoor – This stunning National Park is only 20 mile drive East. Situated on the North coast, Exmoor National Park contains an amazing variety of landscapes within its 267 square miles (692 square kilometers).
