White Hare Gallery, 67 The Square, Hartland. Beautiful watercolours and glassware. Plus THE most amazing handmade chocolates (gift for who fed the cat maybe??) Well worth a visit or when you book direct order a box to be waiting for you in your room!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - released in 2018, was filmed in and around Hartland, Clovelly, Bideford and Saunton Sands. The house was used as a green room while they were filming - right outside and you can actually see the house in one shot! Starring Lily James, Michael Huisman, Sir Tom Courtenay and Katherine Parkinson to name but a few, find out why they chose this stunning area for the film (which obviously isn't Guernsey.....). See link on our Facebook page.
