A group of local authors will be taking over the artist's cabin at Bucks Mills for the first time.

The cabin is rarely open to the public, and this will be a unique opportunity to look inside and talk to the North Devon authors about their writing.

Seven authors will take it in turns to the use the cabin between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

They will be there to discuss their work, as well as sign copies of their books.

The artists at the cabin will be: Ruth Downie, Janet Few, Susan Hughes, Wendy Percival, P J Ree, Liz Shakespeare and Pamela Vass.

Janet said: "There is something magical about this stretch of coastline that has long inspired artists and writers.

"From Rudyard Kipling to Charles Kingsley, many authors have turned to this wild landscape for inspiration.

"We feel lucky to be following in their footsteps.'

The artist's cabin lies nestled at the bottom of the hill in the little fishing hamlet of Bucks Mills.

This two-roomed hut began life as a fisherman's store before being acquired by Judith Ackland's family.

Together with her friend Mary Stella Edwards, Judith used the building as an artists' retreat for half a century.

The solitude and spectacular views across the rugged North Devon coastline make it ideal for those seeking inspiration.

Now in the care of the National Trust, the cabin is almost exactly as the artists left it in 1971.
