The local area

North Devon boasts some of the most stunning coastlines and beaches in Britain as well as the wilds of Exmoor and the rolling hills of Tarka country.

Its diversity is reflected in the towns and villages that make up this unique area. The area caters for every type of visitor, whether you prefer sleepy hamlets hidden amongst the rolling hills, traditional market towns or vibrant coastal resorts offering a wide range of amenities.

If you want an active holiday the Tarka Trail with its 180 miles of cycle ways is a great way for all the family to experience the beauty of North Devon, whilst the Doone Valley has nature trails to take you to the very heart of the countryside.

Lundy Island is another very special place. With three lighthouses and an endangered puffin population, it is surrounded by Britain’s only statutory Marine Reserve, a must visit for all nature lovers.

Endless stretches of sandy beaches makes North Devon’s coastline one of the finest in the world, with a blue flag beach at Woolacombe voted amongst the world top ten beaches.
