Reasons for trip


Churchwood Valley is a selection of lodges built down one side of the valley that leads down to Wembury Bay in Devon. Each lodge is secluded and peaceful, with views across the valley. The lodges are fairly basic, but clean and comfortable, although a word of warning, most have several steps leading up or down to them. The area around Churchwood is lovely, it is only a 5 minute walk down to Wembury Bay, which is fairly rugged when the tide is in, but when the tide goes out, a length of sand is revealed. The Mill Cafe situated at the bay does the most delicious cream tea, one of the best I've ever had. The southwest coastal path crosses the bay so can be walked in either direction, we walked east to Warren Point and back ( about 3 miles) and the views are stunning. During our time there, we had a day out in Plymouth which has a good shopping centre and is easily accessible from Churchwood Valley. On another day we visited the lovely Garden House and Buckland Abbey and had a good walk on Dartmoor. All in all, we found Churchwood Valley a lovely place to stay, and will certainly stay there again.
