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.
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 South 16 or At One.
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, dramatic 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 and the Arts and Crafts Centre 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 Muddiford Inn.
Head for Woolacombe and park up above the beach on Marine Drive Car Park. Walk along the beach to Putsborough and back to Woolacombe up high on the coastal path. Stop off at the Porthole for a cuppa or lunch. Perhaps tonight a BBQ at the Little House. Reeds butcher in Braunton does great home made burgers. If you have time and the tide is low, Lee Bay near Ilfracombe is worth a visit to simply chill and watch the world go by. Or be brave, head through the rocks to secret bay and take a dip!
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.
