The cobbled, traffic-free, high street of this world famous fishing village in North Devon, built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff, tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port.
It is famous for its donkeys, which traditionally carry goods up the hill; sledges bring things down. There are links with Charles Kingsley, Turner, Dickens and the Spanish Armada.
"We stayed here for 3 nights and had a most comfortable break. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfasts and bar snacks were superb and dinner in the restaurant was outstanding. Altogether a wonderful break. We intend visiting again within a few months." Sept 2012
