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.

SCORCHING JUNE AT THORPE

5 of 5
Hi Chris, Just a quick note to thank you for the use of your wonderful beach-view house last week. It was a great base from which to enjoy the best on offer from a great resort and the weather made it all the more memorable. The facilities at Thorpe exceeded our expectations. Not only did we manage to catch the final two days play in the US Open Golf, we also managed to see the first Rugby test against the All Black's just before our departure on Saturday. In between we made extensive use of the beach, the golf course at Saunton on a sweltering hot Tuesday, the lovely coastal walk on the slightly cooler days towards the end of the week, and some of the nice bars and restaurants in the local villages. The family especially liked the Barricane Curry experience. I have a rather large extended family and plan to ensure they are all well aware of the hospitality on offer at Thorpe. Thanks once again. Perhaps we will be back with an even bigger family gathering next time.

Perfect for a few days away. Lovely quite location and great for dogs. Well maintained and clean. Bedrooms are quiet cramped which would be my only complaint
