Activities around Combe Martin

Combe Martin is the perfect base for a North Devon and Exmoor holiday whatever your interests; ideal for a family holiday at the beach, romantic weekend break or activity holiday.

Kayaking
Kayaking and paddle boarding in and around Combe Martin Bay is a great experience during your holiday. You can hire a kayak or paddleboard right on the beach and take a leisurely paddle around our safe bay to experience the stunning north Devon and Exmoor National Park coastline, full of secret inlets, caves and secluded beaches - a magical experience.

Walking
Enjoying the excellent walking in this area is one of the main reasons for visiting. To the west of Combe Martin is the wonderful scenery of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and to the East is the impressive Exmoor National Park. You are spoilt for choice. Go to our 'walking in North Devon and Exmoor' page to get further inspiration.

Gardens
This area is blessed with some wonderful gardens. They are usually in sheltered valleys and with our mild winter weather kept warm by the Gulf Stream, some exotic plants can be enjoyed. Go to our 'Gardens' page for more ideas.

Relaxing
On damp days or in the evening you may like to relax and do something different, such as go to the theatre or cinema or visit the skittle alley. See our Leisure page for ideas and contact details.

And at the end of the day you can sit on the beach and watch the amazing sunset.
