Food editor Jo’s top picks for summer in North Devon.
Ben and Sarah Lambert’s stunning new development is a perfect base for a gourmet getaway in North Devon.
Absolutely delightful afternoon tea with fine pastries, great scones and tea in silver teapots. The view is to die for too. Also a great hotel for a stay with kids as they get two hours supervised child are a day in the playroom, so parents get to flake out on the sofa for a while.
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant fish and chips. Eat in or take ‘em down the beach.
Dutch couple Rinus and Aniet Van de Sande have created a sculpture garden of international reputation in the grounds around their arty hotel with lovely Med-inspired food. Expect to find bread from the wood fired ovens and home cured salami. Go for lunch or dinner and a wander through the gardens or stay the night.
On the coastal bit of Exmoor, this historic inn is the start and finish of a stunning scenic walk along the South West Coast path. Takes in a Roman Fort (well the mound where it once was), and steep cliff paths with panoramic views. Wild goats likely to be spotted too. Then finish off at the inn for lunch, dinner, tea, cold beer etc etc.
Coffee cupcakes just divine. Get them at Barnstaple Pannier Market on Friday mornings. Go. Now.
Crow’s the slightly more off the beaten track bit of the North Devon beaches, being at the mouth of the Taw estuary. The locals’ spot for a beach barbie and campfire on a summer’s eve.
