Discover | Combe Martin & Berrynarbor

Combe Martin is renowned for having the longest village street in England, stretching for over two miles from the ‘top’ of the village to the beach, or ‘seaside’ as its known locally.

This bay of sand and shingle provides shelter for small boats and from here many small coves along the coastline, such as Wild Pear and Broadsands, can be explored by canoe or ocean kayak. These beaches are difficult to reach by foot so care should be taken, however they are excellent for snorkelling and, if experienced, scuba diving.

A mile down the road, towards the town of Ilfracombe, you will find the quaint and peaceful village of Berrynarbor.

The residents of Berrynarbor can pride themselves by being winners of best kept village in England many times over, with its small whitewashed cottages and picturesque old world charm. Sterridge Valley, with its forest and trails makes a beautiful sheltered walk through the mainly coniferous woodland.

Close by you will find yachts moored at Watermouth Cove and the start of the coast path which takes you back towards Hele Bay and Ilfracombe. This trail is initially wooded, before opening up to offer truly fantastic scenery. Follow the path, closely following the cliffs edge, back towards the coastguard cottages and the view of Hillsborough which rises dramatically above Hele Beach.
