Where to Visit from Cherry
Bigbury, Bantham & Hope Cove
The attractive small village of Bigbury is the home to "The Oyster Shack" a well known fish restaurant which can be reached via the tidal road from Aveton Gifford.
See the menu at www.oystershack.co.uk
Half a mile south west of Bigbury on Sea is the renowned Burgh Island with it's art deco hotel and Agatha Christie connections. The Pilchard Inn on the island is believed to be 14th century and a famous haunt of smugglers where time appears to have stood still. This wonderful unspoilt island has featured in many films and is a natural bird sanctuary. The island can be reached on foot at low tide or by the Burgh Island "Sea Tractor" at high tide.
This is where the Avon river reaches the sea at Bantham whose lifeguards patrol the sandy beach during the summer. The beaches here are sandy and perfect for sand castles. Bantham is also a mecca for surfers with the dunes, a faraway romantic place to have a picnic or maybe visit the close by Sloop Inn.
Hope Cove is a pretty Devon fishing village with a collection of thatched, cob and stone cottages. A good stopping off place for walkers on the South West coastal path.
The village is in two parts — Outer Hope and Inner Hope. Inner Hope was part of a neighbouring parish until the 1970s, when it was united with its neighbour on the other side of the small headland. Both halfs of the village originally developed as centres for the local fishing industry but also developed a reputation for smuggling.
