in Mortehoe, North Devon
We fell in love with the pretty hillside village of Mortehoe a few years ago after spending the most enjoyable few days exploring the local area. It is a great place to get away from the bustling crowds, a little coastal oasis. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty right on the South West Coastal path, with its rugged, spectacular views in all directions, yet only a short walk down the hill is the famous award winning golden sands and amazing Atlantic surf of the stunning Woolacombe Bay and headland of Baggy Point in the distance.
We think it has everything you need for the makings of a perfect holiday and hope you will love it too.
Capra Cottage has undergone a major refurbishment this year and we feel we have given the property a new lease of life. It has a modern, fresh, coastal décor yet is effortlessly stylish, perfect for families, friends and couples alike. It provides a sumptuous, comfortable and convenient retreat to explore the local area all year round, whatever the weather.

Capra Cottage is set in a tranquil location a few minutes stroll from the quaint village centre and all it has to offer – two pubs serving great food, tea rooms for the perfect scrumptious Devon Cream Tea, a gourmet takeaway serving delicious homemade food, a fully stocked village shop that also sells freshly baked bread and the most gorgeous pasties and sausage rolls around, a fish n chip shop where you can also purchase the local ‘catch of the day’ to grill on your own barbie at home and lastly not forgetting our very own favourite ‘Miss Fea’s Café’ – it really is a foodies paradise!
There is also easy access from the village via the coastal path to the ancient, stunning headland of Morte Point, from here you will see the long sandy beach of Woolacombe Bay to the South, the unique Lundy Island straight ahead and on a clear day the Welsh coast to the North. Woolacombe Beach was voted number 6 in Europe and number 20 in the world in the 2020 Travellers’ Choice Awards and you will soon see why as soon as your toes feel the soft Woolacombe sand.
