Bay View is a high-quality holiday home set in Exmoor National Park on a hill at the end of a private road with a commanding position overlooking the bay and beach of Combe Martin. Though very close to the beach and the hustle and bustle of this popular holiday destination, Bay View is located in a peaceful spot with sea or beach views from all rooms of the house.
Important note: Bay View is adult-only accommodation and is not suitable for those with mobility problems due to the nature of the garden and different levels that the house is set over. Please also note the information under “Private off-road parking” below for access information. Please contact us for further advice if required.
At 1.5 miles Combe Martin has one of the longest high streets in Britain. The beach, pubs, restaurants and shops are just 350 metres (5 minutes walk) away from the main street. The best fish and chips are about 6 minutes walk away.
A regular farmers market is held at the village hall and there are many events and festivals held around this gorgeous part of north Devon throughout the year.
Combe Martin lies within the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Just to the east of Combe Martin Bay are the Hangman cliffs, 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 Coastal Path just a minute’s walk down the hill, which also runs through the village.
