The Old Stables in the tranquil village of Woolsery is an ideal holiday headquarters for exploring everything on offer in North Devon. And it is just a short walk into the village for fish and chips, a visit to the local pub or to stock up at the stores and post office. The stables have been thoughtfully converted to ensure guests have everything they need. The stone external walls blended with red brick around the window and door openings is eye-catching and the garden is punctuated with lush mature trees. Single storey keeps everything on one level apart from one step in the shower room so it is a perfect cottage for guests with restricted mobility. The lounge/diner and kitchen area is light and roomy with simple decor. There is also a spacious double bedroom and shower room. The delightful lawned garden has a table and chairs just perfect for al fresco dining. A short drive west takes you to Hartland, which is remote but not without charm and has many craft shops and potteries in addition to cafés and restaurants. There is a long main street, with cottages either side, leading to the town square and the church of St John. Not far away is Hartland Quay, where the Shipwreck Museum is worth visiting. The Quay was commissioned in 1586, following a parliamentary bill sponsored by some of the great names of the time, Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir John Hawkins. It became a busy port, shipping coal, granite and various farm produce until it began to break up towards the end of the 19th century. Head east for Westward Ho! which is the only place in Britain with an explanation mark in its name, but there's more to it than quirky grammar. Golden Bay beach is a long strip of sand backed by a pebble ridge. On the northern end, you can access the Northern Burrows, a scientifically important area. A site of special scientific interest, it boasts sand dunes, salt marsh, grassland, rocky shore and is teeming with wildlife, including rare plants, insects, birds and stunningly vivid lichen
