Wild Pear Centre, Combe Martin, Devon

Sleeps 10 - 20 7 Bedrooms 20 Dining

Large group property near Exmoor for get togethers and holidays

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Wild Pear Centre, Combe Martin, Devon, sleeps 10 - 20 in 7 bedrooms.

The Wild Pear Centre is situated in the North Devon seaside village of Combe Martin, the western gateway to Exmoor. Wild Pear beach, our namesake beach, is a favourite for swimming, sunbathing and exploring rock pools. Numerous delightful walks and beaches are nearby - wooded valleys, standing stones, limekilns, silver mines, miners tracks, coves, and a Saxon lane.

Wild Pear offers a relaxed, feeling-at-home ambiance. It’s a good environment for groups to meet and spend time together. It’s an unusual holiday venue for friends or extended families.

Wild Pear has provided a venue for many groups and courses such as yoga, meditation, new age spirituality, movement, dance, singing, photography and art. Close to shops, beach and the coast path, there is little need to use a car after arrival. It is not a luxury country hotel - its luxury is to be found in its difference.

The social hub of the centre is the Hall. Under a mansard roof, with beams said to be fashioned from ships timbers salvaged from Wild Pear beach, there are sofas, easy chairs and a dining table. A big ceiling fan provides atmospheric cooling breezes in the summer, and conserves heat in the winter. There is a piano. Large roof windows bring natural light to the area. There are sea views.

The Wild Pear Group Room has windows along its south side looking out to a wooded slope and nearby hills. This is a versatile space that can be used for group gatherings, or just being. The room is generously equipped with large floor cushions and mats, and can be cleared if required. There is a sprung oak dance floor throughout the Hall and Group room.

Whilst being so close to the beckoning great outdoors, Wild Pear is also spacious and welcoming for those days you may want to relax indoors on holiday. For those wishing to venture further afield than what’s possible on foot, we are within easy driving distance of Lynton and Lynmouth, Hunter’s Inn and the popular surfing beach at Woolacombe Sands.
