Beaford Arts

Lee Parish Church and Village Hall

Beaford Arts

A narrow winding lane off the B3343 between Ilfracombe and Woolacombe will take you to the tiny coastal community of Lee.

The village is tucked away in a wooded valley leading down to the sea. Visitors can park in the centre of the village then continue by foot along a path, crossing a couple of fields to the rocky cove which is Lee Bay. The secluded beach is perfect for exploring rockpools and swimming in its tranquil waters.

The heart of the village centre lies approximately 500 yards from the beach, and centres around St Matthews Church, the Village Hall, and the Grampus Inn. Each of these places plays a part in hosting Beaford Arts events.

The church, which was built in 1835, is quite small, with tiled floors and beautiful stained glass windows. It also has an organ loft, catching you by surprise when you enter the building, which provides alternative seating with a birdseye view and wonderful acoustics. It’s a perfect venue for intimate events.

Just opposite the church and alongside the beautifully-named Pixie Meadow, which acts as a village green in the summer months, is the recently-refurbished village hall, which also hosts Beaford Arts events. Its half-timbered interior has a stage, a raised gallery and a wood-sprung floor ideal for dancing, plus a well-equipped kitchen!

Both venues are close to the village car park and its only pub, The Grampus Inn.
