Croyde Beach, Putsborough Beach, Saunton Sands and Wollacombe Beach
The National Trust’s Baggy Point headland and surrounding area make for some world class coastal walking that link all three beaches that surround our cottage; Croyde, Putsborough and Saunton Sands. The breath taking 11k circular walk which starts from right beside the cottage is one of the most wonderful activities to take on with the whole family when staying at Mountain Ash House. Further afield but easily accessible is the super long beach walk from Putsbourgh to Wollacombe.
Croyde is the closest beach to the house and takes about 10 minutes to get to on foot. The sheltered bay, on-site facilities and lifeguard presence make it a great family destination.
There are plenty of other activities nearby to keep you busy some of most popular include cycling on the tarka trail, horse riding, 36 holes of championship links golf at Saunton Sands, tennis in Barnstaple and even a family fun Dinosaur park in Coombe Martin.
