Newberry beach is adjacent to Combe Martin beach which is larger and sandier. Dogs are permitted on Newberry beach but not on the adjacent Combe Martin beach.

The surrounding countryside and coastline provides excellent recreational facilities with lovely wide open, safe, sandy, surfing beaches at Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton (also with championship golf course) and Woolacombe. The Exmoor National Park is also nearby and provides endless bridleways and footpaths for those who wish to ride and walk.

Description - Understood to have been originally constructed during the Victorian era this substantial detached property presents colour wash rendered elevations. The main building offers accommodation arranged over four storeys, the smallest section is arranged over two storeys with castellated roof terrace above. We understand that the property first opened as a hotel in 1929 and has been run by the current owner for the last twenty years but the time has come to retire. The property is well appointed and well presented and offers extensive reception areas generally utilised as public rooms at present. There are 10 en-suite letting rooms as well as a top floor suite of rooms which could easily be self contained if required as well as owners accommodation on the ground floor. Externally there are various balconies, a roof terrace, gardens, private car park and attractive swimming pool. A number of the rooms offer balconies and enjoy fine sea views and there is pedestrian access to the beach nearby. We understand that the property has operated on a B&B basis and has produced steady income over recent years, although this has reduced over the last few years as the owners have contemplated retirement. The layout of accommodation with the majority of dimensions is more clearly identified upon the accompanying floorplans but comprises;
