In order to make a full day out, combine your visit to Hartland Abbey and its garden and grounds with a walk around our village of Hartland with it's Craft shops, potteries etc. St Nectan's Church, Stoke, between Hartland Abbey and Quay, is known as the Cathedral of North Devon. Some of the most spectacular coastline in the British Isles, which can be seen from a number of vantage points, is accessible by vehicle or foot. The South West coastal footpath passes within a mile of the Abbey.
