You'll find a warm welcome, and a great breakfast, at Southdown B&B - an extended 300 year old cottage situated in beautiful countryside on the Hartland Peninsula at Higher Clovelly in North Devon. With wonderful views across open farmland out to sea, Southdown is set on the North Devon Heritage Coast, and in an ideal location for sections of the Coast path starting and ending at Clovelly and Hartland Quay, and the Tarka Trail cycle path which is only 20 minutes away. We have en-suite guest bedrooms suitable for single, double, twin and triple occupancy, and (weather permitting!) they have sea views across Bideford Bay.

Guest rooms have free wi-fi, Freeview TV, hairdryers, towels and tea/coffee making facilities. We can organise or provide for you pick up and drop off at the Coast Path, evening meals, packed lunches, luggage transfers, off road car parking and garaging for cycles. We have drying facilites should you encounter some of our more liquid sunshine! And we're dog friendly! Stagecoach bus 319 from Hartland to Bideford and Barnstaple passes our door, and bus 219 from Hartland goes the other way to Bude, so we're a good base for several sections of the path.

Hopefully we've got it all covered so that you can have a wonderful time on one of the more remote sections of the South West Coast Path or the fabulous Tarka Trail - but if there's anything else you need to know, please have a look at our website and contact us if you can't find the answer. You can also book directly online via our website.

We hope we can look forward to meeting you, and we'll do all we can to make sure you have a great stay.
