Walking Holidays

We can promise walkers spectacular views from the South West Coastal path at nearby Baggy, Morte and Bull Points, where seals can often be seen or walks across Braunton Burrows, a dune ecosystem of world importance. Follow the link for more information on local walks, Croyde, Lee Valley and Georgeham are the nearest places to Spreacombe mentioned.

Walking in North Devon

In our view, one of the best things that you can do on your holiday in North Devon is to go on one of the numerous stunning walks available. In particular we would recommend walking on the one of the cliff paths, perhaps to Morte Point, (Mortehoe area)  see more details below, or Baggy Point (also National Trust Owned). 

Clovelly, pictured opposite has a really pretty, but steep, cobbled path leading to its picturesque harbour; not a walk for those with weak legs and look out for the Exmoor Walking Festival which hosts many guided walks around the North Devon and Exmoor Area.

Morte Point Walk

Well worth it ; at its simplest the walk around Morte Point can take less than an hour from the Mortehoe carpark followed by refreshments perhaps at the Ship Aground, Mortehoe. Once a haunt of smugglers, this is where you may be fortunate enough to see the seals playing with their latest catch. 

A longer version of this walk would take you via Bull Point and the secluded coves of Rockham Bay and Bennett's Mouth and maybe onto the picturesque village of Lee for lunch at the friendly Grampus Arms. 

A great website to look at for details of the coast path walks is the National Trust one

Mortehoe village has been a favourite stop of ours when walking to Morte Point. The Ship Aground pub is dog friendly

For a completely different experience Braunton Burrows has a dune ecosystem of world importance. . The sand dune system, Braunton Burrows, is one of the largest sand dune systems in the UK and has been declared Britain's first Unesco biosphere reserve and houses over 400 species of wildflowers alongside many birds, butterflies and dragonflies.

Crow Point is located at the most southerly tip of Braunton Burrows, it is popular with walkers, bird watchers and fisherman alike. This is where the rivers Taw and Torridge meet the sea and is a favourite migration / "overwintering" site for many birds.

This boat has been steadily decaying over the years that we have walked around Crow Point. To my mind it still has a beauty to it.
Olly the dog loves long walks when he comes to stay at our self catering cottages. The beaches of Woolacombe and Saunton both have huge expanses of sand that he loves to run over.
