   About Bucks Mills ...

A 15 minute walk from the Gallery takes you through the old stone cottages further down in the village - and on past the famous 'Artist's Cabin' - the tiny home and studio of acclaimed local artist Judith Ackland and her companion, the accomplished Poet & Artist-Illustrator - Mary Stella Edwards - stroll down past the ruined Lime Kilns - and you are on the old Bucks Mills Quay and greeting the panoramic views across the Bucks Mills seashore to the Island of Lundy - and left towards the whimsical village of Clovelly - just across the bay.  'Old King Cole' was here - and there are shipwrecks and sailors out there amongst those gorgeous rocks, too.   

The Devil attempted to build his bridge to Lundy here - but disappointingly - broke his spade - and presumably went home for an ice cream instead. 

And there is a little ice-cream seller's window here - Just tap on the glass and ask nicely.

Oh - and not forgetting of course - The Bucks Mills Waterfall - splashing merrily and vigorously at you - just on your right.

Doggies are welcome - and the beach and woodlands are complete with a wealth of wagging tails.

The Bucks Mills Gallery is the perfect place to start your adventure - just past the Victorian-built 'St Anne's Church' - on your right.
