As you descend the hill on your approach to Hartland Quay with the horizon of the Atlantic Ocean and the vast panorama from Lundy Island to Cornwall stretched ahead of you, a very warm welcome awaits. Whether you are a day visitor or plan to stay longer in the hotel, where better to experience the Atlantic Ocean in all its beauty than Hartland Quay. From the clear, calm, blue seas to the raging fury of the huge breakers crashing with their full force against this tiny headland, there is nowhere in the British Isles more spectacular to visit.
Come inside to warm up with a good pub lunch on a cold day. Relax at a table outside in the sun, eat your meal looking out to sea or spend a cosy night in one of our rooms overlooking the bay. Sit on the Quay with a drink watching the sun disappear over the horizon or swim in the sea on a calm day. At low tide there is plenty of sand and fascinating rock pools for children to enjoy.
Enjoy the stunning views, walk the coastal footpath, breath the exhilarating fresh air, see the beautiful wildflowers and seabirds, spot dolphins and seals in summer. Visit Hartland village with its local shops and craftsmen, Hartland Abbey, the welcoming ancestral home of the Stucley family with its fascinating interiors and beautiful gardens, St Nectan’s spectacular church, Clovelly and the many attractions nearby. North Cornwall is only a few miles south, with Bude, Tintagel and Boscastle within easy reach. The Eden Project makes a good expedition for a day out. Hartland Quay is a great base for exploring or relaxing in a virtually unspoilt corner of North Devon.
