Welcombe lies on the Atlantic Coast just on the Devon side of the North Devon/Cornwall border midway between Bideford and Bude. The parish of Welcombe comprises a scattered group of hamlets incorporating approximately 100 households. The village sits astride a deep valley which leads a meandering stream to the cliff edge at Welcombe Mouth where it ends in a picturesque waterfall. St Nectan’s Church looks over the northern flank of the valley while The Old Smithy Inn lies on the southern side. Some of the people who live in Welcombe commute to neighbouring towns and villages to work on a daily basis, others run businesses from home including the pub, pottery, tourist accommodation, builders and farmers.
Welcombe is part of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
The community is active and dynamic with many social events throughout the year bringing its residents together to celebrate their good fortune in living in such a special place.
