The Centre is run by The Mortehoe Heritage Trust, which is managed by local people. It is situated in the heart of the cliff-top village of Mortehoe, 1.5 miles north of Woolacombe on the coastal road. Entry is through the village Car Park which is opposite Mortehoe Garage. The Centre is a Grade ll listed converted barn which is owned by the National Trust, and lies at the heart of the AONB and Heritage Coast and within the village Conservation Area.
The exhibition gallery offers fun for all ages: an historical cameo of life in this dramatic coastal setting; a presentation of maritime history including many local shipwrecks; an introduction to the flora and fauna of North Devon; the birth and development of tourism, farming and country skills. A unique opportunity to understand the history and culture of this beautiful corner of Britain. Children will love the Centre's hands on games, puzzles and quizzes.
