Self Catering & Glamping Accommodation in North Devon
Little Bray House is a working family home offering self catering accommodation for visitors to North Devon, Exmoor National Park and the North Devon coast.
Set in rolling open countryside, Little Bray has been a beautiful holiday destination under the same ownership since 1976 and established as guest-house several years prior.
We offer self catering within cottages in the "wings" of the house along with glamping and camping in the grounds.
Please peruse the website for more information on accommodation and glamping, along with the history of the house and estate and current facilites we offer such as fishing, music and the indoor badminton court.

Exmoor National Park & Coast
On our doorstep is the vast expanse of Exmoor National Park. With a wild and diverse landscape, the moor offers deep valleys with meandering streams, open moorland with gorse and heather and the wild and stunning North Devon coastline.
The National Park boundary is 5 minutes away by car and within 10 minutes you can be out in the wilderness of the moor.
The beautiful rugged scenery of the Valley of the Rocks and nearby towns Lynton and Lynmouth are a favourite for visitors to Little Bray.
Travelling west along the coast from Lynmouth you find Britain's longest high street in Combe Martin, traditional Victorian seaside town Ilfracombe and the famous sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Putsborough, Croyde and Saunton Sands.
East from Lynmouth is mostly in Somerset and is the western edge of Exmoor including Dunster, Porlock and Minehead.
