Mortehoe is within an area of outstanding natural beauty, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, conservation area and also surrounded by National Trust farmland. The property enjoys fabulous sea views. Mortehoe is on the borders of Woolacombe and these twin villages stand on the Atlantic Coast. Woolacombe is famous for it's 3 mile sandy beach between Baggy and Morte Points and regularly receives Blue Flag and Premier Seaside Beach awards. It has become one of Devon's premier surfing destinations. Mortehoe and Woolacombe villages offer a good range of shops, restaurants bars, leisure facilities and outstanding local primary schools. The well regarded villages of Croyde and Saunton are both located a short drive away, each offering further sandy beaches and in the case of Saunton, a popular golf course and hotel. There are a number of other golf courses locally including at Mortehoe itself. The National cycle route, 27, passes by as does a bus service to Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe. Nearby Ilfracombe has an attractive harbour and Exmoor National Park and Lynton/Lynmouth with dramatic coastal scenery are easily accessible by car. North Devon's main trading centre, Barnstaple is approximately 15 miles and offers a wider range of amenities and facilities one would associate with a large town. It also provides transport links on to the A361 which in turn connects to the M5 at Junction 27 where rail links to London, Paddington in about 2 hours, can be found at Tiverton Parkway. The nearest airports are Bristol and Exeter.
