Within walking distance of these pretty Devon cottages is Peppercombe, a scattering of old cottages in a sheltered, wooded valley leading down to the sea. This little known sheltered cove with its unique red cliffs is neatly hidden away between Westward Ho! and Bucks Mills. It is a leisurely walk down to the shoreline through the valley, rich in ferns, foxgloves, primroses, bluebells and wild garlic. Walkers can join the South West Coast Path - the section to Bucks Mills is wonderful - or you can carry on down until you reach the rocky shoreline. There is a sandy beach at low tide. Unlike Bucks Mills, there is no car park so why not stay and make Horns Cross a base for your holiday?

The pretty stone cottages at Northway are set in 5 acres of grounds within half a mile of the dramatic coastal footpath above Peppercombe’s National Trust shingle beach and within 5 miles of the glorious sandy beach at Westward Ho! Most of the cottages open off a delightful flower filled courtyard, whilst some look out towards the sea. All of the cottages are well furnished and equipped and some have their own garden. Visitors enjoy use of a superb leisure complex housing an indoor heated swimming pool and spa with full changing and shower facilities (open 9:00am-7:30pm), a fitness area and games room with table football (coin-operated), pool table, table tennis and toddlers play area. For children, there is a well-equipped adventure play area and an area for ball games, and they will surely enjoy stroking the tame rabbits and goats. Christmas decorations, a real tree and champagne are supplied for Christmas bookings. This is a wonderful walking area, both on the coast and along the nearby Tarka Trail. From the lane, a rough track (not suitable for toddlers or the infirm) leads down to the coastal path from where there are magnificent views across Bideford Bay towards Clovelly and the beaches of Devon’s northern coastline. There is plenty to see and do nearby – The Big Sheep and Milky Way, the new Atlantic Village, and the picture postcard village of Clovelly (6 miles) are just some of the attractions. Bude’s superb sandy beach and resort amenities are within a half hour drive. Golf and riding are available locally and the Tamar Lakes offer sailing and wind surfing. Nearest pub serving food in Horns Cross, 0.25 miles.
