    A compact lively harbour with working fishing boats, large wooden towing boats & a regular ship to Lundy. The quay looks to have refurbished railings & is a hive of activity with people fishing & gene...  more »

  • Beautiful, working harbour. The usual touristy shops, but some decent restaurants too.
  • Never been before, only a few hours visit, but the setting is superb, every angle,view is unique, viewed from various locations due to the terrain, rugged coastline, well worth a walk 👍
  • Typical seaside harbour. Plenty to do and lots of shops. Beaches were not as clean but that's to be expected when it had boats etc! Dog loved it though! Been there 3 times now! Only thing that ruined our day there yesterday was a sandwich shop on the harbour that sold us a crab sandwich that when we came to eat it on the beach found that it was crab paste and not real crab?! Found that bizarre when we are in a harbour especially when it was advertised as crab....
  • Always something going on. The local cafes are excellent, the fudge shop on the quay is yummy and a walk to the harbour is very picturesque, often with visiting boats. At low tide the harbour is sand and a nice walk, dog friendly town too! Often there are Victorian and food festivals / events - check the town website for details.
  • So peaceful. Little gentle waves perfect for the little ones to play in
