In a unique position overlooking the sea at Woody Bay, this historic Manor House sits within its own 26 acres of extensive grounds nestled into the tree-covered Exmoor hills. The views here are jaw dropping. Ancient woodland falls down almost to the sea and cliffs rise sharply up out of the water to become the highest in England.  The craggy coastline is spectacularly beautiful, peaceful and unspoilt; little can be heard apart from the crash of the waves and the call of the birds. A steep path from the Manor leads through manicured grounds to a sand and shingle beach. A sparkling waterfall plays down the rocks and it is rumoured that German submariners would sneak ashore under cover of darkness and replenish their supplies of fresh water here during WWII. Rock pools, visiting seals, and a part natural swimming pool make Woody Bay a magical place to take a picnic and spend time on a fine day. Exhilarating walks wind through Exmoor National Park and over National Trust headlands and the South West Coast Path passes close by. A particularly scenic route follows the coast to Valley of Rocks and on to the twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth. Horse riding and fly, lake and sea fishing are all available nearby.
Set in the grounds of The Manor in amongst the trees, The Lodge is a detached cedar wood bungalow with the feel of a tree house. Peaceful and very secluded with direct views over the sea it's ideal for a romantic retreat. Compact and cosy the living/kitchen/dining area has large picture windows displaying the quite magnificent coastal scenery. The double bedroom also has great views and there is a small dressing room with space for a cot. A private ranch-style balcony is the perfect place to sit outside and admire the surroundings.
Martinhoe Manor has landscaped gardens, sweeping lawns, mature, colourful borders and meandering paths which melt into the Exmoor landscape beyond. East-facing, the morning sun lights up the front terraces and in the evenings the sun sets over the sea in a spectacular show of colour. There is a communal games room with a pool table and a very useful laundry room.

Mrs Jill C,

We loved Martinoe Manor for the peace and quiet, amazing views and beautiful gardens with lots of places to sit and a path down to the beach. The Lodge has the best view of all and is totally private. Inside it is simple but has everything you need. The caretaker is very helpful and Woody Bay is beautiful. We loved the walking, the Victorian pool on the beach and the tea room at Lee Bay.

Miss Charlotte O,

It is simply furnished but delightful and has everything we need. The location is stunning and the onsite caretaker is very welcoming and helpful.
