This holiday is based on the northern tip of Devon in the tiny village of Mortehoe, perched above the Atlantic. This area is a hidden gem, away from the hustle and bustle of Barnstable and offering a great variety of walks. The walks will take us mostly along the coast from Ilfracombe around to Woolacombe and Croyde, where the landscape offers us dramatic cliff tops, wooded valleys and long sandy beaches. You can arrive the scenic way by train, using the single-track line from Exeter to Barnstable. A step into the past, it winds its way up to North Devon through tiny hamlets. From there a short taxi ride takes you to Mortehoe.
We will be staying at the recently renovated Smugglers Rest, a delightful and extremely comfortable B&B with an outstanding reputation. We may choose to eat here in the evenings or there are plenty of local eateries nearby (not included).
Price includes: 4 nights half board in twin ensuite rooms; transport to walks. Single rooms available if you book early – £20 per night supplement
