A local’s guide to Combe Martin

Combe Martin, nestled on the North Devon coast on the edge of Exmoor, is one of Devon’s hidden gems. Often overlooked by holidaymakers heading for the beach resorts of Croyde and Woolacombe, the village has retained its rural charm and friendly atmosphere. Holidays here range from relaxing romantic retreats to active family breaks - and our local's guide explains all about the lovely location.

Woolacombe: A perfect holiday location

Thrill-seekers, families young and old and foodies will all absolutely adore a holiday to the coastal resort of Woolacombe in North Devon. The village has plenty of things to see and do, including modern bars, top-class eateries and, of course, the award-winning beach, where adrenalin-junkies can enjoy a spot of surfing. Our guide explains why a Woolacombe holiday park could be perfect for you.

A vibrant village

For such a small village, Appledore is certainly vibrant! One of the highlights of the year is the Appledore Book Festival, a nationally recognised event where authors and celebrities give talks and sign books.

Throughout the year, arts and crafts shops and galleries brim with life, while riverside pubs and restaurants offer perfect places to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat. You’ll often find ice cream vans on the Quay, while the independent coffee shops and cafes also sell tantalising, often homemade, titbits.

Described by Charles Kingsley as the “Little White Fishing Village”, the village is steeped in maritime history. The Appledore Shipyard remains in the village, while fishermen’s cottages, now a range of bright colours, are still visible on the winding streets - well worth a look.
