The Hartland Aikido Club practises in the Bucks Cross Village Hall, which is right at the top of a winding road that leads down through a beautiful wooded valley to stunning the seaside village of Bucks Mills. If you come to practise with us, be sure to take the time to explore the valley and shore.

Close by you will also find the picturesque village of Clovelly and if you are looking for a family day out, why not try The Milky Way or The Big Sheep?
