It wasn't really Parkham, it was Horns Cross! Parkham is a couple of miles away and could be seen from the window of our room at Horns Cross! Horns Cross is a very small village, but has a pub and another one a mile down the road at Hoops, an even smaller place. Our room was in a farmhouse in the middle of North Devon countryside between the coast and the village of Parkham, a very pretty location. The very local pub The Coach and Horses of Horns Cross has a large menu for the size of the pub and an obliging landlord who made us coffee one morning before he was actually open! We enjoyed the food one evening too! You need a car if you want to get around. There are a lot of lovely walks that can be done from Horns Cross, which is close to the coastal path, but if you want to see more than the immediate locality you need a car. Not too big a one though, as some of the lanes are very narrow!
The perfect place to relax and rest. There are not a lot of things to do but if you are looking for quiet holidays it's the perfect location. You will need a car to get everywhere though. And the roads are very small and you need to be careful.
Loved the wonderful views and being surrounded by countryside. We ate at a nearby village, (just 2 miles away) at The Bell Inn, which was excellent for the food and the atmosphere. We soon got our bearings and explored Bideford and the riverside as well as visiting R.H.S. Gardens, Rosemoor.
Very good location for exploring North Devon, there are plenty of restaurants in Bideford and general locale, I would highly recommend the The Old Smithy Inn in Welcombe and The Italian Kitchen in Bideford for dinner. The Tarka trail from Bideford to Instow is lovely walk and Instow is quaint place to visit. Johns of Instow is a great place stop for coffee, cake and time out to watch the world go by!
