    Berrynarbor has a long history, dating back to the 13th century – it takes its name from William Nerbert de Beri, who was Lord of the Manor here in 1196, and the village church can also be dated back to that time. In the Victorian era, writer Beatrix Potter was a regular worshipper in the church.

    -Explore Berrynabour: Today Berrynarbor’s residents pride themselves on their village’s beauty with floral displays in every garden and quirky flowerpot men found hanging from trees and drainpipes.

Nearby Combe Martin is England’s longest village, stretching almost two miles inland from the sea.

Rock pooling and kayaking are among the most popular activities in Combe Martin, while fans of fishing – either sea or coarse – can enjoy the sport here.

    -Watermouth Cove: Enjoy more of the delights of the coast, the sheltered harbour and rocky shoreline at this delightful cove. It’s a great place for all ages. Watermouth Castle, with its dungeons, maze and rides, is a terrific family attraction.

A series of hand-carved tunnels lead to lovely sheltered beaches and a Victorian tidal bathing pool.

When you’re there, indulge in fish and chips or a cream Devon tea.

    The weather in Berrynarbor

    The climate of Devon is a mild one with warm summers and mild winters. Rainy spells are frequent, however, and because of its mix of coastline and moorland, the weather can be changeable no matter when you visit. The coast is generally sunnier than the moors where mists and fogs can come down in minutes so before you leave your Berrynarbor holiday accommodation, be sure to check the local weather forecast.
