Combrew Farm is very close to The Tarka Trail, a 40-mile long cycle and footpath that runs from Ilfracombe through Barnstaple and Bideford and beyond along the Taw and Torridge Estuaries almost to Dartmoor. It’s built on an old railway line so it is easy and wonderfully scenic cycling for all, with some lovely cafes, pubs and even beaches along the way. There are bicycles at Combrew for hire if you are unable to bring your own bikes.
Combrew lies within easy reach of some lovely beaches, seaside resorts and fishing villages, all the way along the North Devon coast from Clovelly to Ilfracombe, including the award-winning surf and sand beaches of Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands. There are many small family friendly attractions from farm theme parks and Go-Karting to National Trust properties, golf courses, and opportunities for day sailing trips to Lundy Island departing from the Quay at Bideford. Stay for a fortnight and you’ll still leave without having enjoyed everything that North Devon has to offer its visitors throughout the year.
