Lee is a small village with a mixture of thatched and mostly character properties nestling in a very picturesque wooded valley often known as 'Fuchsia Valley' because of the abundance of flowering hedgerows in the village.

The village leads down to a beautiful cove with rockpools and small sandy beach with a further sandy beach accessed through the rocks at low tide and which is featured in the photographs. This beach is also accessed via steps down from the South West Coastal Path. In addition to as swimming and rockpooling, the beautiful coastline here is perfect for kayaking to explore the coves (on calm days and subject to checking the weather conditions of course) and the South West Coastal Path passes through Lee offering breathtaking views as it winds its way towards Ilfracombe or Mortehoe.

Within the village there is a shop and public house called The Grampus which dates back to the 14th Century and with a tea-room that opens between Easter and October, a favourite with residents and holiday-makers alike. Families are catered for, and walkers and dogs are always welcome.

Millfield sits up on the cliffs above Lee Bay.

Lee is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the wonderful surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Putsborough, Croyde and Saunton which are all within a short car journey, yet enabling you to return to the tranquility of the village of Lee and away from the 'hubble bubble' of the busier surfing resorts.

Equally, Exmoor is just 10 miles away just north of Combe Martin where beautiful moor and woodlands walks can be enjoyed.

Golf can be enjoyed at Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and of course the championship course at Saunton where there are two links courses.

The South West has arguably some of the most dramatic scenery in England. Within this, North Devon can boast rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, wide estuaries and a particularly intense clear estuary light, green countryside wooded valleys and open moorlands.

Walk the coastal path, cycle ride the Tarka Trail or across the moor, fish in the many rivers or open seas, horse-ride along the beach or across Exmoor, surf, sail, kayake, wind-surf, kite-surf or just build your castle in the sand!

So whether you are looking to get away from it all and relax or to get active and explore, there is always something to suit all of the family in North Devon.

Wander around traditional fishing villages or along sandy beaches. Explore unspoilt landscapes and a wealth of attractions. Unwind at a spa or get active and try one of the water-sports in Devon. Many attractions have special offers and free events and there are so many natural playgrounds including Exmoor, Dartmoor, and, on your doorstep, the coast.
