Morthoe was once a quiet bay which was perfect for hauling smuggled goods and ship wrecking passing vessels on the craggy rocks. Today the South West Coast Path, once used as a lookout for brigands, skirts the top of the village and takes you along the wild coastline to Morte Point and Bull Point Lighthouse.

The holiday cottages we offer in Morthoe are near to the local shops and traditional pubs found within this part of the North Devon Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
