Situated right next to the hotel, this beautiful sandy beach is secluded and has been voted number 3 in Britain’s best secret beaches. Hidden on the coast and nestling beneath wooded cliffs, this is one of Exmoor’s best secluded, secret swimming beaches. This deep double cove has many caves to explore & there’s even an island lookout to climb. There is a steep descent with many steps down a long stairway through the woods and in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
