Crow Point, Braunton, North Devon

Back in the day there was a small village and a chapel at Crow Point, but not anymore. Now this hook shaped peninsula forms part of the Braunton Burrows nature reserve on the North Devon coast, on the estuary where the Taw and the Torridge meet. Needless to say, the views are amazing, stretching up to Barnstaple and across to Instow and Appledore.

What’s nice about Crow Point is that it’s not the easiest place to get to so it doesn’t get crowded. People tend to come here to walk along the sands, to spend time birdwatching, or to study the plants and wildlife in the dunes at the back of the beach. There’s a lighthouse and the wreck of a boat on the beach which will no doubt fascinate the young ‘uns, and they’ll enjoy running about on the sands, writing their names and that. It’s an amazing place, take your camera and change for the car park.
