Where you’ll be

Mortehoe, United Kingdom

Mortehoe is a pretty coastal village surrounded by National Trust land in a marine conservation area. Rockham and Grunta beaches are a short walk from the cottage.

Morte Point, an area of outstanding natural beauty, is almost on the doorstep—as is the South West Coast Path.

Woolacombe, the adjacent village, is famous for its perfect sandy beach which has been named the best in Britain - and one of the five best in Europe - by Tripadvisor users. There are several other beaches in Woolacombe and a number of good restaurants, too.

Great surfing beaches like Croyde, Saunton and Puttsborough are just a couple of miles away. Exmoor National Park isn’t much further.

The village itself has cosy pubs, restaurants (limited winter opening), a Post Office, a 13th-century church and a shop where you can pick up fresh croissants for breakfast.

Activities in the area include surfing, walking, sea-kayaking, coasteering, fishing, golf and of course lazing on the beach. You can find more information about the area from the local tourist information centre. Or ask us.

I grew up in Mortehoe and Old Post Cottage has been in my family for 60 years. I love North Devon - it's the best place in the world - and enjoy introducing new visitors to the area through our gorgeous cottage.
During your stay
We don't live near the property - we wish we did! - but we have a local housekeeper who will prepare the cottage for you and will be available to help if needed.
