¾ mile by footpath from Welcombe Mouth in one direction and ½ mile in the other from the excellent pub at Welcombe, a detached house with commanding views out to sea from upstairs, privately sheltered by its surrounding, enclosed well-kept gardens (tiny raised ornamental pond with safety cover). From the front gate a green lane leads to the Coast Path and thence down to the beach (not a route for the unfit or heavily laden). Less arduous, a footpath across fields leads to the pub - remember torch! The house is smartly comfortable without being precious, with wood or tiled floors in most rooms. A well stocked garden surrounds the house (patio, barbecue), leading to a grassed area for ball games and sea views; beyond that, subject to grazing stock, a field with unfenced pond in the far corner.Sitting room (woodburner, TV/DVD/Blu-ray/PVR) looking to garden; big dining room-cum-second living room with TV and glazed doors to garden; equally large smart kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, oil-fired Rayburn, electric oven/induction hob) with sofa and 4 steps down to utility room with freezer, washing machine, tumble drier, sink, loo, lots of room for coats/boots and door to garden. Stairs up to four bedrooms at various levels, with sea views from all the doubles – a double (5' bed), a roomy twin and bathroom (suite, shower over bath); a few steps down to another double (5' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite) and a few steps up to a double with en suite shower-room (suite). Arrival after 4pm. A quiet, private, star-gazing place with lots of space around.

The Devon region
North Devon: its coast is perhaps the most varied of all, from Hartland Quay with its tremendous cliffs and multi-coloured rocks like dinosaurs' backs, via car-free Clovelly village tumbling to the sea, and the estuaries of the river Torridge (where Tarka lived) and river Taw, and Braunton's wilderness of sand dunes (all good for birdwatching), to the best sand/surf beaches in Devon at Saunton (the West Country's best golf course too), Croyde and Woolacombe, all the way to Exmoor.
The main town is Barnstaple - busy, thriving, not too big. The Tarka Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows, very attractively, the river Torridge from deep inland to the sea and on past Instow's good beach and lovely cricket ground to Bideford, from where Elizabethan merchantmen sailed. From Hartland Point's lighthouse, great views to Lundy Island - and from Ilfracombe ships (day trips) to it. In Appledore unusual ships are built and its heart is very pretty. Inland, woods and fields roll, sometimes steeply, with streams, rivers and farms, almost totally unspoilt - as is most of the coast. Its north-west, stretching from Hatherleigh to Hartland, is Devon's least changed, least visited, least inhabited part, a country of big fields, some forests, gently undulating, with long, long views beneath big skies where old men in their vegetable gardens look up as a car passes. Holsworthy is the main (very small) town, with square, market, firm purpose. The river Tamar rises in the Tamar Lakes (watersports, fishing). The roads are straighter and less high-hedged than most in Devon - and emptier.
Welcombe Mouth: cove (rocks and sand at low-tide, great surfing) between spectacular cliffs in one of the most unspoilt parts of the West Country, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Coast Path, great birdwatching. Welcombe hamlet (community shop, good food pub, pottery), 1 mile. Hartland (large village with shops and pubs), 10 miles; Bude, 12.
