North Devon District LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND TAKEAWAYS Pubs in the area serving good food are as follows The Pyne Arms, East Down (4 miles). The New Inn, Goodleigh (3.5 miles). The Black Venus, Challacombe (9.5 miles). The Fox and Goose, Parracombe (8.9 miles). Broomhill Estate (4 miles) Weds-Sunday Fremington Quay Cafe (5.2 miles) For all of the above i’d recommend giving them a ring beforehand to check they’ve got a table free. All do really good food, and great beer but tables can get booked up and it is worth remembering that pulling a late one in Devon for food is around 8:30pm. start trying to find somewhere past 9 and you’re entering the realms of pure fantasy! If you fancy craft beer and cocktails with some smorgasbord style food, Crafty’s in Barnstaple is a lovely spot! For a full english or a tasty lunch there’s Boston Tea Party in Barnstaple, and Block in the old Butchers Row, Barnstaple does great food during the day. Also for daytime food try The Porthole Cafe on Marine Drive in Woolacombe overlooking the beach, Mediterranean style fresh food, a good break from fish and chips. Heartbreak Hotel coffee shop in Braunton, Gobblebox in Woolacombe. The Waterside Cafe in Chivenor may the last building on an industrial estate but it’s got great views of the Tor estuary, nice food and is bang on the south coast footpath and a great stop if you cycle between Braunton and Barnstaple on the Tarka trail. Want fish and chips? Squires in Braunton is the place to go. We should also mention The Esplanade in Lynmouth and Lynbay in Ilfracombe harbour. During the summer months everyone should have a Sri Lankan curry at Barricane beach, just round the corner from Woolacombe. It’s served from a hut on paper plates and you can sit on the beach and enjoy the sunset. Also Biffen’s Kitchen in Croyde is an absolute blessing! For reliable local takeaway in Barnstaple try Ganges for Indian, and Fullam for Chinese. Also Somneuk Thai Kitchen Cafe but have yet to try it. With all of these you will need to collect from the restaurant itself. Other places worth investigating are: Blue Groove, Croyde The Rock Inn, Georgeham. Maiden Arch by Robert Bryant, Barnstaple Thomas Carr 1873, Ilfracombe The Riverside, Braunton Noel Corston, Woolacombe The Masons Arms at Knowstone is an amazing pub with a Michelin star. The Boathouse, Instow. The Royal George, Appledore. The Hunters Inn, Heddon’s Mouth.

COMBE MARTIN The garage opposite Starlight closes at 10pm, and has most basic things. There are lots of other shops in the village, including a post office in one of the supermarkets (which also has a good selection of food and drink), a deli, a butcher’s, and a Boots Chemist. There are a few pubs in the village, including The Pack O’ Cards, The Foc'sle (right on the beach) and The Dolphin, all of which have gardens as well as occasional live music. There are two fish and chip shops, Top Chippy opposite the church on the village street and the Black and White which is near the beach. Top Chippy is currently closed, but the Black and White is very good, with a 45 minute queue, so plan ahead! There is an internet café at the bottom of the village near the sea. There is a medieval church in Combe Martin with a recently restored rood screen, which is quite rare in Devon. You can rent kayaks/canoes near the beach at Combe Martin. There is also a museum and tourist information near the beach. Combe Martin Surgery is at Castle St, Combe Martin,EX34 0JA tel 01271 882 406 Open 08:30 – 12:30 & 14:00 – 18:00 Mon/Tues/Thur/Fri, 08:30-12:30 Wednesday. Last but not least is Combe Martin Dinosaur Park, which is quite popular with children, as it has animatronic dinosaurs, animals, a train ride and a seal show. SURROUNDING PLACES Woolacombe, Croyde, Saunton Sands have brilliant beaches. If you belong to the National Trust, you can park for free at their car park at Croyde. There is an amazing 'secret beach' at Lee which involves a climb down at high tide, and a beautiful little beach called Barricane adjoining Woolacombe beach - this gets extremely busy but is great for an early morning swim. Ilfracombe has the Damien Hirst sculpture, a few good restaurants, galleries, a cinema, and a health food shop. It also has the nearest big supermarket, a Tesco – follow the signs to the recycling centre as you come into Ilfracombe. Ilfracombe also has ‘tunnel beaches’ which were created in Victorian times. Entry is not free, but they are interesting. The Black Venus pub in Challacombe is good for food, as is the Fox and Goose in Parracombe. The Pyne Arms is also good, with a lovely drive to the pub. The Station Inn has a beautiful garden, with hillside views and lots of goats, as well as an alpaca! Hunter’s Inn in Exmoor is quite good for food, and a lovely starting point for various short or long walks. Exmoor Safaris by jeep are really interesting, but need to be booked in advance. Wild About Exmoor do stargazing and guided walks, starting in Exford. Lynton/Lynmouth (known as ‘Little Switzerland’) can be worth a visit, including Watersmeet, a very lovely and scenic NT tea room, and an interesting Victorian funicular powered by water. There is a charming 64 seat cinema in Lynton too. The view from the Bay Valley of Rocks Hotel terrace is lovely, although the hotel itself is (quaintly!) dated. Mortehoe, on the approach to Woolacombe, has lovely views down to the sea, and has a nice walk to Mortehoe Point. Baggy Point is also a lovely short walk from Croyde. Saunton Sands has a café overlooking the beach and is good for watching the sunset (as is Barricane Beach, on the approach to Woolacombe from Mortehoe, where they have an Indian café/bring your own drinks in the summer). However, beware the Saunton Sands café, as it’s sometimes unexpectedly closed. There is a hotel called Sandy Cove on the road between Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. It has very nice views of the cliffs and sea from its terrace, and has a pub and restaurant. Between Combe Martin and Ilfracombe, there is a lovely beach called Broadsands but access is via 200 steps. Nearby, there is also Watermouth yacht club, with a newish tea shop (check for opening hours) and lovely if partial views of the sunset, plus a short clifftop walk with good views. Lee, near Ilfracombe, has a nice pub with garden, and is an interesting place to stop off at for a brief visit. There is also a big beach there, accessed at low tide across the rocks, or down a lot of steps. Berrynarbour Village, next to Combe Martin, has won awards for being the quaintest village. Marwood Gardens are very lovely. Bideford has a good local public gallery called The Burton Art Gallery, and Barnstaple has good shopping and cafes. Braunton has a Museum of Surfing. There is a sculpture park, hotel and restaurant (with good tapas) called Broomhill Art Hotel, near Barnstaple. The Tarka Trail is an easy way of cycling on the flat and seeing this part of Devon. Bicycles can be hired in various places, our nearest is probably Braunton, from where you can go to Barnstaple, or the other way. Exeter is probably a couple of hours away, but if you go there on the ‘scenic’ route, and not on the M5, it is incredibly lovely, and Exeter itself has an interesting cathedral. At the time of writing, it's important to book in advance for cafes and restaurants, and some aren't serving evening meals because of staff shortages.

Locally there are beautiful nature trails and cycle paths like the Tarka Trail, hiking and wildlife watching on the moors or some of the best surfing in the UK at the nearby beaches like Croyde and Woolacombe. You will also find access to hundreds of miles of spectacular walks along the North Devon Coast, following the South West Coast Path. This all makes Mollands an ideal base for your short break.
