Visit Woolacombe and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Woolacombe, Devon, has with Saunton, the finest sand and surf beach on this north-west coast North of Bude. The sea does not expose miles of mud at low tide as at many places on the Bristol Channel. It is enclosed by steep, moorland slopes rather than by cliffs, and its houses climb pleasantly up the gorse-covered hillsides behind. Beyond the houses are romantic bare combes, grand for walking or riding.
Mortehoe is older and has some pretty cottages. Its church, founded in Norman times, enlarged c. 1300 and subsequently, is small and quite interesting but not especially beautiful. From beside it a path leads to Morte Point where the slate cliffs are thrilling. The Morte Stone, the furthest point, claimed five ships in the winter of 1852. To the North there is a lighthouse (1879) at Bull Point.
