This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

We have recently begun work on restoring and converting this former linhay into simple accommodation for two people on the edge of the small hilltop settlement of Mortehoe. This detached single storey building has views across the nearby fields.

Mortehoe, a pretty stone built village has a 13th century church offers tea rooms, pubs, shops and other amenities.

Woolacombe is just a 5 minute drive away and in addition to the great surfing opportunities here, there are plenty of walks and cycle routes in the area, perhaps take a hike across to Morte Point and along the dramatic coastline. There is also a local program of seasonal events.

From bucolic sleepy market towns to the miles and miles of coastline, much loved by surfers, swimmers, families, and walkers from all over the world, a trip to this special place will stay with you for ever.

North Devon with its outstanding coast, glorious moorland, plunging wooded valleys and remote, unchanging rural landscapes inland - has so much to offer the visitor, no matter what type of holiday you are looking for. On the coast you will find miles of sandy beaches at places like Woolacombe and Croyde, and some of the finest surf in Britain (whether you're a beginner or a pro), interspersed by long and lonely stretches of dramatic soaring cliffs and rugged headlands, with the South West Coast Path running all the way along the coast, guaranteeing some exhilarating walking . The beautiful wooded valleys and winding rivers of Exmoor National Park add a softer touch to the landscape around the fringes of the high bare moorland, whilst the lively coastal towns in the area Lynton, Ilfracombe, Barnstaple and Bideford - bring a bit of seaside sparkle. Inland, there are historic market towns and hidden villages in the lovely unspoilt valleys of the Taw and the Torridge.
