American style dinner. Big cooked breakfast or a belly busting lunch. Very good value and the milkshakes are fantastic and the burrito could feed a small family!

A small and relaxed restaurant creating British fine dining with an emphasis on local seafood from Michelin starred chef Thomas Carr. BOOKING ESSENTIAL. At present they are doing fine dining meal boxes. We are yet to try one but I won’t hesitate to say, they will be outstanding.

This place is the bomb! It is so dangerous, I could happily drink their coffee and eat their cakes everyday. Their cake are works of art and taste sublime. Not to be missed.

A beach hut/cafe selling ice creams, baguettes and cream teas in the day but it’s in the evening when it really comes to life selling Sri Lankan curries. They sell out fast so get in early ( 5pm- 7pm) and check facebook/ the weather to make sure they are open.

open mic night on a Friday is a busy affair. Get there early if you want a seat. They even brew their own beer and distil their own gin. Approx 13 min drive or you can walk for approx. an hour over the Torrs along the South West Coastal path for some super views.

Walk on the fishing side of the harbour and flow the coast, past the skate park. A sheltered cove with shingle beach, good for swimming if you don’t want to get in the car. Back in the day this beach was a favourite with smugglers and it is said that somewhere there is a tunnel leading to the nearby Chambercombe Manor. Many tales linked to this beach including shipwrecks and the story of Alfie and the Kaiser.

A short drive or long walk over Hillsborough. A sheltered cove with cafe and toilets. Calm water so good for swimming and kayaking. Good for climbing rocks and enough sand for sandcastles. There is a very reasonable car park just behind the pub.

The big one! 3 miles of yellow sand. Great for surfing and you can hire everything you need on the beach. If it looks busy by the main car park you can continue to Marine Drive and get to the beach through the sand dunes. Please only swim between the lifeguard flags. Putsborough beach is at the far end, with parking and a small cafe & shop

a long sandy beach stretching all the way to Crow point. A bit more wild and windswept than woolacombe, great for a walk or a surf. By the carpark there is a surf shop, cafe, toilets and the Beach side Grill with a big sun terrace over looking the sea.

ust a short drive of about an hours walk along the Torrs on the coastal path. A picturesque village with a lovely rocky beach. Make sure you go at low tide as the tide comes right up the beach. Also, at low tide you can walk through the rocks to the next (sandy) beach to the left. Don”t worry you won”t get caught out if the tide comes in, There are steps to get you back up to the coastal path. Be warned though, there are a lot of them! Worth it for the views at the top.
