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.
"Beautiful place, great food, great beer and lovely staff. what more could you want for a weekend retreat. nice comfortable bed, spacious, clean and warm. The bathroom was modern and immaculate. TV, tea / coffee making facilities, bottled water and bathroom robes were very nice touches
The food choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner was superb and very varied, something for everyone.
If you like real ale the "Hoops Best" at 4.8 abv & £3-40 a pint is what it says, the best, but each pint slides down the throat far to easily so beware!!!
Would not hesitate to go back again and again and again.
Centrally located for all local attractions and nearby towns and the scenery around this area is breathtaking.
Give it a go i am sure you will not be disappointed. good discounted rates during their quieter period (jan & feb) so we have been told but please double check this with them 1st " Nov 2012
