Scenery not to be missed, my pictures are from around Hartland, North Devon which is a truly beautiful place, the geology is truly fascinating the people are friendly and welcoming and it has some lovely places to eat and stay.

This is a lovely little cove,with lots of rock pools for the children. And if you walk in between the cliffs, and rocks you will find even more. If you carry on you will come to a small beach. If you cannot face walking back there is a staircase on the small beach, quite steep but will also get you out of trouble if you forgot the time and the tide was coming in.

Really is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with lovely views of the coast and sea with some steep hills to go with it, so be prepared, the South West Coastal Path runs along here in mostly National Trust land so all is well and good. We walked Damage Barton camping site to Woolacombe via Morthoe and back, in the past I've done Lee Bay and Bull Point lighthouse as well.

Morte Point is well worth a detour for. Park at Mortehoe village car park pay and display (Ringo if you can get a signal!) or cash £4 for the whole day.If it is low tide you can often see seals resting in the rocks.Best bet for lunch is Feas cafe near the car park opposite the post office which is open 11 am until 3pm for fresh homemade cakes and a limited lunch offering.
