Things to do near Wheel Farm
The cottages at Wheel Farm are set within a quiet rural countryside setting but are only a few minutes’ drive from the seaside village of Combe Martin, with its wide choice of restaurants, cafés, pubs and independent shops, local family attractions and family friendly beach.
The glorious golden sands at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton are all within a 20 minute drive. They are a popular choice with families and water enthusiasts; for surfing, rock pooling, building sand castles and sun bathing. In the busy summer months, the smaller and more secluded beaches tucked along the coastline at Lee Bay, Barricane and Hele Bay also offer excellent quieter alternatives.
Ifracombe, a popular seaside town, with its beautiful harbour, historic tunnel beaches, famous ‘Verity’ statue and wonderful mix of quaint tea rooms and good quality restaurants is also nearby. Other enjoyable days out include exploring the delights of Exmoor National Park, perhaps a lovely circular walk to Heddon Mouth, or a visit to Lynton and Lynmouth, with a trip on the ‘Cliff Railway’.
Also, with numerous local family attractions to visit such as Exmoor Zoo, Combe Martin Wildlife Dinosaur Park, Watermouth Castle and the historic National Trust estate of Arlington Court, there really are plenty of places nearby to visit to suit everyone, whatever your age!
