The West Country / Devon region
Hartland Forest covers 1000 acres and is home to herds of wild deer, yet is just 8 miles away from North Devon's beautiful Heritage coastline and miles of sandy beaches.
Hartland Forest Golf & Leisure Parc is situated within Hartland Forest , close to the Atlantic coast of North Devon which is steeped in a tradition of smuggling and wrecking , and famous for its timeless fishing villages , including Hartland and Clovelly which are just 5 miles away .
The nearest village is Woolfardisworth (Woolsery) which is within two miles of the park and has a local shop and a friendly, traditional pub- The Farmer's Arms. The nearest towns are Bideford to the north and Bude to the south, both of which are about 13 miles away. .
Also very close to the lodge is the North Devon & Cornwall coast, a World Heritage Site. This includes the village of Clovelly- renowned the world over for its flower strewn cottages and steep cobbled footpath falling to the 14th century harbour, it should not be missed by visitors to Devon, whilst Hartland Quay and its incredible geological features and beauty so impressed Walt Disney that it formed the backdrop to the opening of his film of Robert Louis Stevenson's ' Treasure Island ' .
Lundy Island can be visited by boat from Clovelly or Bideford Quay and is populated by just a few souls , many seals and puffins .
For garden and historic house enthusiasts , a visit to Hartland Abbey , Tapeley House and Gardens , Arlington Court , RHS Rosemoor Gardens and Marwood Gardens would be worthwhile .
The Atlantic ( Factory Shopping ) Village on the outskirts of Bideford offers ' Retail Therapy ' and Dartington Crystal at Torrington is well worth a visit .
The Burton Art Gallery at Bideford exhibits a variety of local works and also varied touring shows
There are many local potteries and craft studios to be found in surrounding villages.
Just a short drive along the Cornish coast are Tintagel , Boscatle , Crackington Haven , Polzeath , Port Isaac ( where ' Doc Martin ' is filmed ) , Rock and Padstow . ( The latter notable for its association with Rick Stein's eateries and as a former home to Sir Walter Raleigh - not necessarily in that order ! ) .
The whole of the Devon and Cornwall coastline is easily accessible from the lodge and offers unsurpassed holiday attractions for adults and children alike , throughout the year .
Other notable attractions within an hours drive of Hartland Forest are the Eden Project, the Big Sheep and the Milky Way.
