Here’s some ideas of things to do in the area, both on site and nearby.

Local Beaches

We are very blessed to have a wide range of great beaches on our doorstep. Coastal Cabins is just 1.25 miles from the stunning North Devon Coastal Path which is perfect for miles of outstanding walks. However if you’re after a beach day then these are our top picks:

Hartland Quay – 2.5 miles away with parking and a pub on site.

Sandy Mouth – 15 min drive. National Trust run beach with cafe, parking and facilities.

Westward Ho! – 20 min drive. Family friendly village with large beach and many amenities.

Bude – 25 min drive. A selection of outstanding sandy beaches with all the facilities you could need.

Saunton/Croyde/Woolacoombe – 45min drive. A coastline with stunning popular beaches. Can get busy in holidays but lovely.

Hartland Village (5 min drive)

Just a few miles away you’ll find Hartland Village. With 3 pubs, a village shop, post office, pottery, coffee shop and various other arty shops it’s a lovely way to while away an afternoon. In the wider Hartland area you’ll also find must see places such as Hartland Abbey, Hartland Quay, Hartland Point Café, Docton Mill Gardens and more.

Clovelly Village (5 min drive)

Completely car free, this quaint fishing village is a great place to visit. It’s stunning and very unique with cobbled streets and a traditional harbour. There are also a few pubs and tea rooms if you need a bite to eat.

Surfing Lessons (20 min drive)

Do what the locals do and pick up a surf board and ride the waves! Whilst in Devon it would be almost rude not to enjoy the local sport. Book a half day or a full day lesson at one of Devon or Cornwalls most beautiful beaches.

Ultimate Adventure Centre (20 min drive)

Have you got a head for heights?  Or would you rather splash around in water on ground level?  This adventure centre near Bideford offers a range of activities from an assault course over 10 metres up in the air, to a water assault course, mountain boarding and much more.

The Milky Way (15 min drive)

A great local theme park, perfect for children of all ages. For those wet weather days there is a plenty of indoor fun including a soft play area for the little ones. For the older kids they have bumper cars and a rollercoaster.

The Big Sheep (20 min drive)

Another popular attraction for families with younger children. The highlight is the daily sheep racing.

Watersports (25 min drive)

Just across the Cornish border you’ll stumble upon the Tamar Lakes.  It’s a great place to try all kinds of watersports such as Windsurfing, Kayaking, Sailing etc.

If you’d like to try Wakeboarding then next to the Milk Way adventure park you will also find The North Devon Wake Park.

Cycling (25 min drive)

We are very lucky to have one of the best cycling routes in the UK not too far away. The Tarka Trail is a 34mile cycle path and the great news is that because it used to be a train line it’s completely flat! Stop at one of Instows lovely pubs, or Fremington Quay Cafe at Fremington Quay.

Fishing (on site)

At Coastal Cabins Glamping we have a fully stocked fishing lake on site. All of our guests are welcome to use it during their stay completely free of charge. Equipment is not provided so please do bring your own.  The lake mainly has Tench, Rudd and some Carp. There are no restrictions at all so you can fish as much as you like during your stay!

Families will also be pleased to know that the lake is very safe. There is a fence surrounding the perimeter so little ones can play freely without any worry.

We can recommend this local fishing shop for any essentials:


Enjoy hundreds of miles of breathtaking scenery by exploring the South West Coastal Path.  With access to the path just over a mile from your cabin, this is the perfect base for a walking holiday.

The heritage, wildlife, geology and scenery along the way are truly inspirational and every day walking it brings stunning new experiences.

Whether you’re looking for an afternoon stroll to take you to a beautiful view, or for a challenge like no other, you’ve come to the right place.
