3 Nights in North Devon

If we were to suggest a 3-night break at The Little House or Long House here is what we might suggest you do during your stay.

Day 1

After arriving early afternoon to a warm welcome. Drive to Saunton Sands beach for a walk and a cuppa at the little café. On route home stop off in Braunton for a fish and chip dinner at Squires Fish n Chip Restaurant.

Day 2

Off to Lynton and Lynmouth on the North Devon coast, for walkers we suggest parking up at Valley of the Rocks and walking to tow path to Lynmouth (30-45 mins), stunning views all the way. A wander around the shops and bag of Roly’s fudge later, indulge in a pasty on the sea wall, enjoy the view and see what the fishermen bring in. Take the Cliff Railway up the hill to Lynton and enjoy some time exploring the winding streets of Lynton before the 20 minute walk back to The Valley of the Rocks. Take the toll road to past Lee Abbey and park up in the small car park by Lee Bay here you can see a beautiful chapel housed in the rock and explore Lee Bay – we have seen dolphins in this bay! Wind your way back home. Dinner at The Crown in West Down.  

Day 3

Tide dependant a visit to (a different) Lee Bay on route to Ilfracombe is well worth it, a beautiful bay for some rock pool exploring or just sitting and reading the paper! Ask us about the walk through the rocks to the cave. In Ilfracombe, park up at the harbour and take a boat trip on board the Ilfracombe Princess. Dinner at Ragamuffins Bistro in Braunton.

Day 4

Heading home via Exmoor stop off at Lanacre Bridge or Tarr Steps or for some shops Try Dulverton (pretty riverside Pub) or Exford before heading for the M5.
