The West Country region
Located within close proximity to the wonderful beach of Woolacombe Bay, probably the best surfing beach in the UK . There are plenty of activities to keep the most adventurous family amused.
With the Gulf Stream keeping sea temperatures comfortable you will find everyone enjoying the surf all year round.
Just a few miles inland is the vast Exmoor National Park with unrivalled beauty if its a stiff coastal walk along the cliff paths or a ramble over the moors, as long as you always follow it with a Pub Lunch.
The harbour at Ilfracombe is worth a visit with its Victorian sea front and boat trips to Lundy or perhaps a half day fishing. It also boasts the exclusive restaurant owned by the famous artist Damion Hirst. His statue called VERITY stands majestically looking our to see. She depicts a pregnant woman holding aloft a sword while carrying the scales of justice and standing on a pile of law books. Half of the sculpture shows the internal anatomy of the pregnant woman, with the unborn baby clearly visible. The stance has been described as a reference to Little Dancer of Fourteen Years by Edgar Degas, a work that previously inspired Hirst when he created Virgin Mother
There are also all weather attractions at Watermouth Castle, The Big Sheep or The Milky Way. With exhibitions,talks or adventure play areas its a great day out.
We enjoy cycling along the Tarka Trail, a flat cycle way following the route of the old steam railway.
Further afield you could visit the historic village of Clovelly or even tip into Cornwall at Bude.

"great location, lovely cottage - would definitely recommend to others!"
As a family we have been to North Devon a few times in recent years and love this area...particularly Woolacombe beach!
Leigh cottage gave us everything we needed and more. Clean and comfortable, beautiful location and plenty of room (which you need for a family of 7!
The kitchen is very well equipped to enable a good standard of self catering, the dogs were happy with easy access to a secure garden (albeit at the front of the house which they weren't used to!) and we made use of the table tennis table etc on the couple of days of bad weather.
Would definitely recommend to anyone that loves this area as much as we do!

Fantastic time was had by all. Leigh Cottage offers all the amenities one could ask for. Very clean and tasetully decorated. The washing machine and tumble drier came in very handy with a young baby!
Would definately recomend this property for anyone looking for a quiet break in a beautiful area with a young family.
