Mortehoe is a pretty North Devon village dating back to the Domesday book. They’re lovely pubs takeaways & restaurants and fabulous scenic walks especially along the south west coast path. Take a walk out to Bullpoint Lighthouse and hopefully see the seals and lots of interesting nesting birds

Absolutely beautiful village wrapped around 3 miles of stunning beach which is now 1 of only 12 designated protected areas for surf in the world. Checkout the smaller beaches of Barricane Combesgate and Shellsborough, all within the fabulous Esplanade area. Great selection of pubs and restaurants along with plenty of individual shops selling everything from pasties (Fudgies Bakehouse) to Dryrobes. Woolacombe Bay Hotel has a cinema which is super luxurious and is open to non residents.
