Accommodation Description:

Situated in a beautiful and fertile valley, or Combe, on the western edge of Exmoor National Park, Combe Martin lies at the centre of some of North Devon's most spectacular coastal scenery. The village is located by the sea and is on the South West coastal path and within easy reach of wonderful sandy beaches, the wild countryside of Exmoor National Park and many other attractions.

Our small, friendly, licensed guesthouse is just three minutes walk from the bay and the beach, We can offer long relaxing holidays, weekends away, romantic short breaks, coastal and country walks or cycling breaks. This late Victorian guest house is in the heart of Combe Martin and offers our guests the re-assurance of having been inspected by the English Tourist Board gaining a 4 star rating. All rooms are well appointed with en-suite facilities, colour television and most have either coastal or country views.

Parking? No problem, we have our own large car park. For those larger special occasions we can arrange for private functions at The Acorns Guest House, seating up to 18 people. Breakfast: A comprehensive breakfast menu is available between 8.30am and 9.30am Evening Meal: A varied two course menu at £12 per person per night and a varied three course dinner at £15.00 is available between 6.30pm and 7.30pm, by prior arrangement only.

We also stock a selection of wines to accompany your meal. Coffee: May be taken in the TV lounge bar or in the gardens, quietly watching the world go by. History The name is derived from Combe, which derives from Old English cumb meaning "wooded valley".

The name was recorded as Comer in 1128. The 'Martin' affix on the placename is from the name of the FitzMartin who held the land from c.1100 to 1326. The village is a small seaside resort with a sheltered cove on the edge of the Exmoor national park.

Due to the narrowness of the valley, it is composed principally of one single long street which runs two miles from the valley head to the sea. The population is over 2500, with many Domesday Book families still in the area.
