  • A good place to stop along the trail and refuel. The local birds have become very tame and sit on the table to take bits. Well worth a stop  more »
  • A long walk up from Lynmouth, to be met with a haven like this was fabulous.. A great staging post for tired hikers legs.  more »
  • We took the plunge and walked down to the house/cafe.. lots of different circular walks around the area.. quite a steep desent but worth the trouble.  more »
