Hartland

 

Hartland is in the far northwesterly corner of Devon. Although it has a population of just  1,676 people, it is the largest parish in Devon and is made up of the village of Hartland, the nearby Hartland Quay and Hartland Abbey. Although just a mile or so from the A39, it tends to be rather overlooked as visitors rush by to better known places such as nearby Clovelly. However, this leaves Hartland as a hidden gem waiting to be savoured by those who appreciate its charm.

 

 

Hartland Coast

Hartland’s Parish Hall is the centre of local activities. If you are visiting in early August, go along to the Carnival which lasts all week with quiz nights, concerts, a grand procession and a Carnival Dance as a grand finale. This delightful village was voted “Most Welcoming Community in North Devon 2005” and so it remains.

Hartland grew up around Hartland Abbey which was built in 1157. Due to its remote position the abbey had the dubious honour of being the last monastery to be dissolved by Henry VIII in 1539. It was then given by the king to his wine steward, William Abbot, who converted the former Abbot’s house into a comfortable estate home. It is now the ancestral home of the Stucley family and both the house and the lovely gardens (designed by Gertrude Jekyll)  are open to the public on certain days. The abbey kitchens also serve delicious cream teas in aid of St Nectan’s Church at nearby Stoke.

What our guests say...

All perfect - what can I say?  What better way to wake up in the morning, looking over the valley and listening to the birds.  Barny (our Terrier) has walked his legs off and all of the pubs have let us bring him with us.                                                       Fred & Bobby Aylesbury
