The West Country region
This far flung corner of the this beautiful, wild and unspoilt part of Devon has a rich and varied tapestry of rolling hills, woods and rugged cliffs that tower above wonderful white sandy beaches with the blue waters of the Atlantic ocean lapping it's shores. For the surfing enthusiasts amongst you, look no further. The 3 mile long beach at Woolacombe (about 6/7 mins. away) will not disappoint, but snuggling around a curve in the coast you'll find little hideaways for those wanting a more chilled place to while away your holiday. If it's something more energetic you crave, the north Devon coastal path is very easily reached from many different points.
The very quaint village of Croyde with its thatched cottages is a place for old and young. There are many lovely places to eat or just enjoy a sundowner to finish off your day. The National Trust coastal path is easily accessed from Croyde and there is a NT carpark for members or payable if not. Croyde is also a well used surfing beach
Exmoor is just a drive away and includes the delights of Lynton and Lynmouth with its Victorian funicular railway and just inland the amazing Watersmeet. The valley of the rocks and Heddon's Mouth valley are like places that time forgot. There are lovely walks around Heddon's Mouth and Woody Bay and the Hunter's Inn is well worth a stop before making your way back along the coast with spectacluar ocean views. Travel inland a little and lose yourselves in the ghostly tales of Lorna Doone valley.
The National Trust property of Arlington Court, less than half an hour away, is connected to the Chichester family. It's a lovely place to visit and wander through the grounds. The carriage museum is really interesting and you may be lucky to see a very special exhibition piece if it's still in residence! The kitchen gardens are lovely and the NT restaurant serves reasonably priced, good quality food.
The market town of Barnstaple is about 10 miles away and boasts a wonderful panier market which offers a wide variety of local produce. Barnstaple also offers a modern shopping precinct and small independent shops, a theatre and cinema.
Add in RHS Rosemoore gardens, various old houses and gardens of interest, many children's fun parks and Exmoor zoo and you'll be hard pushed to see just a small selection on offer, unless of course, you come back and visit us again!
We are situated a mile from the little village of West Down, where you'll find The Crown, a lovely pub which has a good selection of food on its menu. It has a pleasant garden and welcomes well behaved dogs in certain parts.
There is a village community shop that stocks all basic essentials and will do a grocery box for you on arrival. Orders can be made for bakery and papers. The post office is housed in the village hall 3 times a week.
There is a Church of England, St. Calixtus in the centre of the village.
We are within 15 minutes of Saunton Sands and it's well know golf course and the beaches of Croyde and Putsborough (southern end of Woolacombe) are about 10 minutes away. Willingcot golf course is just a mile away and Ifracombe course about 4 miles.
Ilfracombe, 3 miles away, offers you a lovely harbour, where you can say hello to Verity, Damien Hurst's 20m tall sculpture of a pregnant nude woman. Sounds odd? Maybe, but she's definitely interesting, especially as she has a peeled away torso on one side. After making her acquaintance, visit Damien's No 11 The Quay restaurant for a bite to eat or just sit and watch the world pass by while sipping a glass of something cold. When it's high tide, it's lovely to see the boats bobbing up and down. There is the Landmark theatre in Ilfracombe, along with a small cinema. You will find a wide range of eating places and take away in both Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and within 5 miles of Buttercup Lodge.
