“Take a nice 20 minute walk up the hill to Mortehoe and then stop here for a pint and a bite. The Sunday roasts are great, good idea to get in early (opens at 12).”

“Grunta Beach is a hidden treasure of Woolacombe Beach. You can get there via a steep cliff pathway and is difficult to reach but it is more than worth it once you get there. It isn’t a very busy beach making it a perfect for a tranquil spot. Dogs are welcome through the year. ”

“The small settlement of Mortehoe is a pretty stone built village mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The picturesque village has several lovely tea rooms and pubs that serve good food, as well as a thirteenth century church and Heritage Centre, which recounts the areas rich maritime history. Mortehoe is also the starting point for many scenic walks along this dramatic stretch of coast line, much of which is a part of a Voluntary Marine Conservation Area, creating a beautiful haven for wild flowers and animals. Just north of the village and reached only on foot, is Rockham Beach lying at the base of the 100 ft cliff, an ideal location for a peaceful day on the beach. ”

“There are over 50 golf courses in Devon so plenty of places to enjoy golf in some wonderful scenery. For the serious golfer, Saunton Sands has 2 courses which both figure in the Golf Monthly Top 100 Golf Courses in 2017. Ilfracombe also offers a very enjoyable option just around the corner. The views are amazing at Ilfracombe where they rightfully advertise as ‘Sea views from every tee’. There is also a 9 hole course at the Mortehoe and Woolacombe Golf Club – 01271 870566 Willingcott boats an 18 hole course at Willingcott Valley Golf Course – 01271 870173 You’ll also find a few crazy golf courses right in the the heart of Woolacombe. ”
