Visit Combe Martin and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Combe Martin, Devon, is a small town, stretching for over a mile down its combe to the sea. It has a glorious coast and is an excellent base for walking. It has a unique building in its Pack of Cards pub, and a fine one in its church. The former, looking like a card house with numerous chimneys, is said to have been built by a gambler. The church, mainly 15th-century, has the only rood-screen in North Devon still with its original panel paintings (15th-century). It is about ½ mile up the street and off to the right. In the Middle Ages it was a village famous for its silver mines, some of the shafts running under the street. Scanty remains can be seen up a lane East almost opposite the church. From immediately East of it to Lynmouth is perhaps the most continuously beautiful stretch of unspoilt coast in Devon. One of the best short walks is to the hill called Little Hangman's Point above the cliffs to the East Another is to the wooded valley hamlet of Berrynarbor, about l½ miles West (also driveable).
About 1½ miles East of Coombe Martin, Watermouth Castle, built in 1825, overlooking a beautiful bay, caters enthusiastically for the public.
