A small village of whitewashed houses on a hill leading down to the seashore. For many centuries the village relied on fishing for its survival, this activity was largely the domain of just one large Buck's Mill family, the Braunds.
A pleasant, picturesque and quiet retreat, even at the busiest times of the year. Nearby is the start of the Hobby Drive, a three-mile long, paved drive through woodlands to Clovelly. This was devised by Sir James Hamlyn Williams and his wife and became their all consuming hobby between 1811 and 1829.
