The remote village of Hartland is an unspoilt rural gem which sits on the Hartland Peninsula. The village is made up of a long main street lined with local stores, craft shops, a pottery, in addition to a good choice of café and restaurants.
If you venture two miles up the road to the coast, you can enjoy a view of some of the most spectacular coastlines in the UK from Hartland Point, one of the wildest and most exposed headlands imaginable. There are many wonderful vantage points, accessible by foot or by car, from which one can enjoy views of the coast and out across to Wales.
Not far away is Hartland Quay, which was commissioned in 1586 following a parliamentary bill sponsored by some of the great names of the day – Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh. It was a busy port shipping granite, coal and farm produce until the end of the 19th century.
Also close by is Hartland Abbey, a wonderful historic building set in acres of grounds which lead down to the coast. The estate is regularly used as a film location including the BBC production of John Le Carre’s Night Manager and the recent blockbuster film The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.
