Heddon's Mouth8.98km from National Trust - Watersmeet

Heddon's Mouth is the rocky cove Set on the rugged North Devon coast between Combe Martin and Lynton. The beach here is made up of medium-sized rounded rocks, like super-sized pebbles.

St Beuno's Church9.75km from National Trust - Watersmeet

A beautiful little church dedicated to the 7th century Welsh saint, Beuno. The church can only seat about 30 people at any one time, and even that’s a tight squeeze!

Exmoor Zoo12.06km from National Trust - Watersmeet

Many extremely rare captive species are exhibited such as singing dogs, fanaloka, rusty-spotted cats, and yellow-throated martens.
