A walkers' paradise

If you appreciate natural unspoilt countryside, some of which belongs to the National Trust, breathtaking views and the chance to spot amazing wildlife and rare beautiful flowers then you are sure to really enjoy a visit to the Hartland Peninsula. This area is a walkers` paradise whether you are a dedicated rambler or someone who enjoys a leisurely stroll amongst beautiful and varied scenery.

» Brownsham Moor
This Grassland has an excellent mixture of habitats, including wet heath and scrubby woodland, bog plant, purple moor grass and rush pasture. It supports a myriad of birdlife, insects and also many uncommon plant species.

» The Ancient Woodlands
In January the little snowdrops stand bravely in great numbers. In early spring both Beckland wood and the Hartland Vale are carpeted with bluebells and primroses, followed by the wonderful coloured patchwork of wild garlic, red campion,gorse and masses of foxgloves with their myriad spikes standing sentinel throughout them all.

» The Southwest Coast Path
Hartland makes an ideal base for ramblers who are making their way around the South West Coast Path. The twelve mile stretch of coastal path around the Hartland Peninsula, from Clovelly to Marsland Mouth is truly spectacular. Plenty of easy access points mean that you can chose the distance to suit you.
