Things to do in Hartland Forest

Hartland Forest is a true nature lover’s haven, and the perfect location for exploring the Hartland Peninsula. This part of Devon is hugely popular with walkers and birdwatchers taking to the South Coast Path or heading out on the short boat trip to see the puffins on Lundy Island. The charms of North Cornwall are also within easy reach from holiday cottages in Harland Forest with Bude, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Padstow offering plenty of reasons for a short drive.

-Hartland Village is a gorgeous heritage gem. Full of historic stories, mystery and heritage sites, visitors can make their way through the village following the Harton Borough Heritage Trail. Lots of art galleries, cafes, side walk coffee shops and places of interest, make this a perfect day out.

-The Hartland Quay is a small but spectacular beach on the tip of the Hartland Peninsula. With some of the most incredible geology in the British Isles, the beach is popular when the weather is good for swimming and sunbathing and for wild walks on windy days (dogs are allowed on a lead). The Shipwreck and Smuggling Museum is located on the historic quay and showcases four centuries of fascinating shipwreck adventures. In an area known for smuggling, pirates and Vikings, the museum has a remarkable collection of artefacts and memorabilia.

-The Hartland Abbey:was built in the 12th Century by Augustinian monks and after being dissolved by Henry VIII he gave it to his keeper of the wine cellar – Mr Abbott. The Abbott family then passed it on to the current owners. The Abbey is set on 50 acres of ground is a fantastic place to explore and visit – a must see when visiting Hartland Forest.

-Clovelly is a gorgeously picturesque fishing village, with beautiful coastal views roughly about 6 miles from most Hartland Forest holiday lodges. Here historic buildings are perched on the pebbled beach fronts and traffic is banned on the winding cobbled walkways leading into town.

-Rock climbing is a popular activity on the Hartland Peninsula thanks to its spectacular geography. Novices can try their hand at abseiling for the first time but experts are certainly not disappointed by the challenges this area presents. Local organisations also offer coasteering.

Our stay at Margarets Cottage

5 of 5
We stayed at Margarets Cottage with the family and dog. The Cottage is lovely, very homely. The views were amazing and we enjoyed some lovely walks around the Quay and by the Church. We will most definitely be going back again
