  • "We had a fab week and loved the place, especially the hot tub and the peace."

    It's in a lovely setting and plenty of areas for a nice walk I understand its to do with staffing especially when its so quiet but would of been nice if the bar and restaurant was open in the day. Even if was just to sit in and relax ( maybe the bar could have a pull down so doesn't need manning ) especially as we had guests visiting us for a few hours And maybe add a drinks vending machine especially as there's no shop to walk outside of the on-site shop opening hours. We would come again tho as was a lovely place to relax and recommend it to anyone thinking of booking.

A small settlement alongside the village of Halwill, Halwill Junction offers a modest scatter of amenities, perfect for any last-minute essentials or a rewarding beverage after a day spent exploring the area's Nature Reserve with its old railway lines and abandoned platforms. A place where trains used to run until the late 1960s when Dr Beeching replaced the sound of steam engines for that of flourishing wildlife. An extremely scenic settlement, it also boasts a pub, shop, Post Office and takeaway, catering for all of your requirements. Settled within the Ruby Country, you can expect to find tranquil lands all around, with plenty of beautiful scenery and nature to uncover. In close reach you can find the Dartmoor National Park, offering its visitors even more wonder in the form of wonderful archaeological sites, an abundance of wildlife alongside outdoor adventures such as climbing, horse riding, canoeing, cycling and more, there's so much to see and do here. Venture north to find the coast and all of its excitement, with Bude being home to golden, sandy beaches with opportunities to try out surfing, or enjoy a leisurely game of golf as you soak in your scenery before enjoying a celebratory dinner in one of its waterside restaurants. Perfectly positioned for exploring the coast and countryside of Devon, Halwill Junction is a true gem of a settlement.
