Things to do in Berrynarbor

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. The beauty of Berrynarbor has helped it become a regular winner of the Britain in Bloom and Best Kept Village in Devon competitions in recent years. The village’s 17th century pub, Ye Olde Globe, is the ideal spot to sample Berrynarbor’s fabled hospitality.

-Discover North Devon: Selecting Berrynarbor holiday cottages will provide the perfect base from which to explore North Devon. Nearby Combe Martin is England’s longest village, stretching almost two miles inland from the sea. This traditional fishing village has a remarkable history of maritime trading, strawberry farming and silver mining. Visit the interactive museum to learn more about this fascinating place. 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.

-The Beaches: Hele Bay Beach, about 40 minutes’ walk from most holiday rentals in Berrynarbor, is a small sheltered cove with a ‘blue flag’ beach, recognising its clear, clean waters. Ilfracombe – the largest town in the immediate area – is a pretty resort and harbour town and Tunnels Beach is a unique attraction. A series of hand-carved tunnels lead to lovely sheltered beaches and a Victorian tidal bathing pool.

-The Great Outdoors: Walking is one of the best activities around Berrynarbor – the South West Coastal Path runs through the village and is a marvellous way to enjoy North Devon’s ruggedly beautiful scenery. Morte Point is a bit of a climb but worth the effort, offering stunning views of the coast. And also close enough to holiday cottages in Berrynarbor, Exmoor National Park, with its famed ponies and amazing landscape, simply begs to be explored, either on foot or on horseback. Cycling is another terrific way to see North Devon – the National Cycle Route has a scenic, circular route starting and ending in nearby Ilfracombe. 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.

I would describe it as "small but perfectly formed". We had a wonderful break. A bottle of champagne greeted us - maybe because it was New Years Eve whilst we were there. The cottage had all the essentials for a relaxing break and is in the perfect location for exploring the wonderful beaches nearby. We took two dogs and the owners were happy to accommodate them. We had dinner in the village pub twice and found it really welcoming. The food was tasty and good value. We would definitely come back again.

It is situated in a quiet location in Braunton but within walking distance of shops, restaurants and walks. The comprehensive information pack giving us local information was much appreciated. The beautiful beaches and coastal walks are within a short drive and trips to Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and Coombe Martin are within easy reach

We were 5 adults, 4 children and 4 dogs and we were a bit wary of creating a pop-up Christmas but the house was absolutely brilliant!! I had previously had a poor experience renting an apartment in Malta just days before but the moment I walked into Toad Hall I felt elated. The kitchen has a long table with benches that comfortably seat 8-10 people and was laid out as if it were Xmas day already with festive crackers, plates and serviettes. The manager left a hand written note with some home made muffins. It was very, very welcoming. We spent quite a lot of time in the kitchen playing board games and putting jigsaw puzzles together, cooking, chatting... With the exception of a DVD player/radio, all the appliances worked perfectly and it all looked exactly as depicted in the photos. The lounge was lovely too with a Xmas tree already set up with ample, comfortable seating. Upstairs worked out great because for a family of 4 we pretty much had our own quarters with a separate bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The larger of the 2 bedrooms upstairs was quite spacious. The other bedroom was perfect for our kids, aged 6 and 8. The larger downstairs bedroom is spacious but initially my family members were cold at night. We used the space heater temporarily (usually located in the small conservatory area) to heat the room before bedtime and that seemed to work out fine. The property is located within easy walking distance from Ye Old Globe (Berrynarbor pub) and there is also a fun playground in the village for the kids including a good sized football pitch. You can easily get to the coastal path and walk to both Ilfracombe or Combe Martin. It was a very memorable stay! I loved it!
