The cobbled, traffic-free, high street of this world famous fishing village in North Devon, built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff, tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port.
It is famous for its donkeys, which traditionally carry goods up the hill; sledges bring things down. There are links with Charles Kingsley, Turner, Dickens and the Spanish Armada.
We stayed in Bideford for 2 nights at Hoops...made to feel completely at home and very welcome by all staff. Our room was very comfy and the bar is a great time to spend the night!
