Local places of interest...

VISIT LOCAL HOUSES AND GARDENS The virtually complete 16th Century port of Clovelly, Hartland Abbey, Tapeley Park, Docton Mill, Castle Hill, Clovelly Court and Marwood and the famous Royal Horticultural Society gardens at Rosemoor, to name but a few!

Such as Dartington Crystal furnaces at Great Torrington, the port towns of Bideford (a town of unappreciated architectural treasures) and Barnstaple (world famous floral displays), King Arthur's Tintagel, wild Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor are all nearby. Also visit Hartland Point with its lighthouse, shipwrecks and stunning cliffs and nearby Hartland Quay with its waterside inn.

The meadow walk
The cottage and gardens are set in a secluded wooded valley, approximately 1 mile from the sea; the coast can be approached only by well made footpaths, traversing National Trust ancient oak woodlands. The South West Coastal Footpath meets the Bocombe footpath at Peppercombe, or at Bucks Mills if approaching from the west.

CRUISE TO LUNDY Take the ferry from Bideford to isolated Lundy Island for the day. Enjoy spectacular coastal views from the ship, cliff top walking and amazing sea bird colonies. If your sea legs are not up to it, there are two helicoptor services that can transport you in minutes to Lundy's panoramic views.

Drive down into Cornwall for full day visits to The Eden Project, or Lands
End, St Ives for the Tate Gallery, Padstow for Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant; the county of Cornwall is just down the lanes from Bocombe.
