The park is situated at the top of the valley above the quaint seaside village of Combe Martin. This lovely bay has a nice sandy beach, coves, rock pools and a stunning coastline as well as being on the edge of the National Exmoor Park. The beach has been awarded for its excellence in clean water testing in 2014 enabling it to obtain the bathing award. It is famous for its fun activities of kayaking, rock pooling, and dolphin watching.
Combe Martin used to be a famous for silver mining and the first documented evidence of a Royal Mine here was in 1292. A large part of the war expenses of Edward the Third and Henry the Fifth were paid for by the sale of silver mined in Combe Martin. Later it was reputed that smugglers used the underground tunnels that lead all the way from the park to the silver mine shafts on the beach.
