Devon/Cornwall Border Cottages
The area along the border of Devon and Cornwall boasts the most spectacular coastline and countryside. The whole of the Hartland Peninsular designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering an unspoilt landscape of high cliffs, tumbling waterfalls, wooded valleys and meadows. With miles of footpaths and cycle ways for keen walkers, cyclists to discover, there is always so much to do and see.
The Hartland Quay offers an ideal place to relax, particularly at sunset. A visit to Clovelly is also a must, famous for its steep cobbled streets and resident donkeys. There are many local attractions that will appeal to everyone, including beautiful gardens at Hartland Abbey and Docton Mill gardens, The Milky Way Adventure Park and The Big Sheep.
Whilst beach lovers will find a spot for every persuasion, whether it's a sandy expanse at Sandymouth beach or a quiet and romantic spot hidden at Standbury Mouth. Surfers have the excellent choice between the surfing beaches at Westward Ho! and Bude.
Plus further along the coast near Bude, the Tamar Lakes offer plenty of activities, including watersports, angling, walking and cycling, and of course relaxing.
For those that enjoy their history, the parish of nearby Morwenstow was named after St Morwenna who arrived in the 500s from Wales along with around twenty brothers and sisters who settled in the valleys, moors and coastal area. There are still a lot of remnants from these days in the holy wells that dot the landscape.
Plus along this Atlantic coastline towards Devon, there have been countless shipwrecks documented in just a few miles. The historic town of Tintagel is only a short drive away; its famous castle sits in ruin but offers a fantastic day out.
