This will be our second visit to this site and we can confirm what a lovely site it is.
During your stay we will be hosting social gatherings every other evening in the marquee on site but also getting together to have a natter and put the world right.
On thursday and Sunday evenings there is a food van serving Mexican Street Food as well as breakfasts on Saturday & Sunday mornings.
Things to do in the area:
More than two miles of sandy beach are perfect for sand castles, sunbathing and walks. All that you can need in refreshment is available at the Beachcomber café at the north end of the beach.
An enigmatic feature on the Woolacombe horizon. A place of natural beauty, with the skies full of birds. Famous for its pirate haunts, Lundy offers it’s own special postage stamps, Medieval Castle, Puffins, Lighthouses. Lundy Island is a trip worth taking if you are in North Devon on Holiday.
For those who love walking a visit to Heddon Valley is a must. This National trust managed area offers superb views and access to extensive footpaths and trails. Follow the river to Heddon’s Mouth bay which opens to the sea. Exmoor has so much to offer for those who enjoy the great outdoors.
The famous shell beach tucked in between the rocks, between Woolacombe and Mortehoe. Famous for cowries and other exotic sea shells brought in on the Gulf Stream. Safe for bathing and swimming, with rock pools to explore and more traditional sand at low tide.
Morteho Village & Museum:
Visit our nearby village and enjoy our lovely St Mary’s church,shops, eating places and the village museum which is a treasure trove of local history. Access to Morte Point offering stunning coastal views.
The 3,500 acre estate has attractive gardens, walks and Shetland ponies grazing in the parkland. The stables house the National Trust’s collection of horse-drawn carriages, some of which are available for rides from the house. The ground floor of the house and the garden are accessible to the disabled.
The interior of Arlington Court is a series of fascinating collections amassed by the late Miss Chichester. The Chichester family had lived at Arlington for over 500 years, and Miss Rosalie Chichester, the last of her line, left the house to the National Trust. The house contains some furniture dating from the 18th century, and displays of model ships, Biltson enamels, pewter, shells, snuff boxes, fans and costumes, all collected by the much travelled Miss Chichester.
Marwood Hill Gardens:
At Marwood Hill there are over eighteen acres of landscaped gardens with a large collection of trees, shrubs, herbaceous and alpine plants. The gardens were started in the 1950s by the present owner, Dr Smart. At that time they consisted of a neglected walled garden and its immediate surround. Over the years many new areas have been planted and new features added such as the Folly and the Scented Arbour. There is much of the botanic garden about Marwood Hill.
There are of course many other places to visit including Clovelly, Croyde & Saunton Sands, Morte Point & Bull Point Lighthouse to name but a few. We hope you all have a lovely time here at Warcombe Farm and when it does become time to leave, please have a safe journey.
