Longstone Bed & Breakfast, located in the village of Challacombe, which falls within the North Devon third of Exmoor National Park. The best of both worlds! Fancy a day learning to surf? Tempted to try your hand at kayaking? Or perhaps your desperate to build a sandcastle?! Head over to one of North Devon’s nearby seaside towns and villages such as Woolacombe, Croyde, Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. For those rainy days how about lunch and a spot of retail therapy in nearby Barnstaple, our nearest town and shopping high street.
North Devon’s towns and villages are an exciting mix of rural little hamlets nestled amongst rolling green fields; Atmospheric market and harbour towns to traditional Great British seaside villages with golden sandy beaches.
From the iron age hillfort’s to modern day art, North Devon’s history and heritage, protected through various landscape conservation designations remains for visitors to enjoy today.
Stretching 630 miles the south west coast path starts at Minehead on the edge of Exmoor along the North Devon Coast, around Cornwall and the South Devon coast ending at Poole harbour in Dorset. Originally a 19th century coastguard patrol route restricting smuggling of contraband. Now a modern, well marked coast path enjoyed by countless visitors each year. Whilst the south west coast path offers the ultimate walking challenge for the experienced hiker, it is also easily picked up and is suitable for all abilities depending on where you join.
