Activities and Things to do in North Devon


Take advantage of our free parking and use us as a base to explore the coastline. We have a footpath that links The Pig with the Southwest Coast path. This section of the path is a route less travelled than many because of its lack of accessibility by road, which makes it something of a gem for hikers!

Once on the path you can go in the direction of Westward Ho!, taking in the stunning views of the bay from Kipling Tor, or head towards the villages of Bucks Mills and Clovelly and explore the rugged beauty of the coast.

Ask at the bar for our exclusive Pig on the Hill circular walk tips!


Westward Ho! may not be as fashionable as Croyde or Saunton when it comes to surf spots, but it’s a great place to learn and also has the advantage of space. There’s two miles of beach, so it’s rare you get a crowded wave.

Several companies run surf schools from the beach, or if you fancy just having a splash around in the waves, you can hire surfboards, body boards and wetsuits. Nothing like a good session in the surf to build up an appetite, so once you’re done head to The Pig for some quality nosh.


North Devon’s renowned Tarka Trail offers miles of traffic free cycling through beautiful countryside. If you want to combine sea views with your cycling, the area around The Pig is ideal thanks to the network of sleepy country lanes away from main roads. See map.

We make a convenient pit stop for cyclists, whether of the thin or chunky tyred variety. Come, park up your bike and let us provide some essential refreshment.
