Combe Martin in North Devon, Bay View is a holiday home set on a hill over looking the bay and the beach. The house is at the end of a private road with commanding sea views and the village of Combe Martin. Though very close the beach and the hustle and bustle of a holiday location the house is far away enough to be peaceful and away from it all. Sea views or beach views from all rooms of the house (even the smallest room in the house!)
The beach, pubs, restaurants and supermarket of Combe Martin are just 350 metres (5 minutes walk) away by the main street, there are many more shops and eateries along the street. The absolute best fish and chips is about 6 minutes walk away. At 1.5 miles Combe Martin has one of the longest high streets in Britain.
A regular farmers market is held at the village hall. There are many events and festivals held around this gorgeous part of north Devon.
Just to the east of Combe Martin Bay are the Hangman hills, the Hangman cliffs are made up of Little Hangman and the Great Hangman. The Great Hangman is a hog-backed hill of 1043 ft with a cliff-face of 820 ft, making it the highest cliff in southern Britain, and can be reached by following the South West Coast Path which runs through the village.
Combe Martin lies within the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, these walks are accessed within a 2 minutes walk from the house.
Combe Martin is a central location to visit the towns and beaches of Ilfracombe, Lynton, Lymouth, Woolacombe, Croyde, Saunton and Barnstaple which are all a short drive away.
