Combe Martin - Devon
Combe Martin parish church. Wikipedia photo
This delightful little town, situated on a magnificent cliff-edged coast, is spread along a main street with five name changes reaching down a narrow valley (the combe, pronounced Koom), to the beach. Visit the 13th century Parish Church to view rare carvings and paintings. In town, the Pack of Cards Inn (telephone from the US: 011 44 1271 882300), dating from 1626, was built with 52 windows and four floors with 13 doors on each. Watch the oncoming tide rushing running the gantlet of narrow rocks as it reaches the tiny harbour.
