A calm cliff-top village with spectacular views less than a mile from Woolacombe, Mortehoe is listed in the Doomsday Book and has a number of interesting features including a rare barrel-roofed thirteenth-century church.
Visit Mortehoe Museum which gives a glimpse of Old Morte and the days when smugglers lured ships onto the rocks. Mortehoe is surrounded by wonderful scenery, much of it part of the Voluntary Marine Conservation Area, which is a haven for wild flowers and animals which fill the area with colour and movement.
Above the rugged beaches stand the hill-sides and cliff-tops along which walkers can explore the wonderful scenery which is part of the SOUTH WEST COAST PATH. You might want to buy fresh crabs or lobsters from local fishermen or explore the few shops, pubs and restaurants.
Whenever you choose to visit Mortehoe you can be sure of a friendly welcome from the locals who will be proud to show you their sunny corner of North Devon.
