Comfortably sleeping up to four guests, Peppercombe Bothy is a very basic stone dwelling benefiting from wonderful views to Bideford Bay and close proximity to the famous South West Coast Path.
Perfect for a group of friends looking for somewhere to get away from it all for the weekend, the bothy is ideally placed for a walking holiday. With just a handful of neighbours, the only thing keeping you awake at night will be the sound of owls hooting in the trees and foxes rustling in the bushes.
Follow a meandering path down to the secluded Peppercombe Beach. With its wealth of rock pools and fishing spots, you’ll love exploring this beautiful stretch of the North Devon shoreline.
Just a short drive along the coast and you’ll arrive at Clovelly. This famous old fishing village with its steep cobbled high street leading down to the harbour is home to a range of local shops, pretty cafés and tea rooms and traditional pubs.
