North Devon Coast
The North Devon Coast actually encompasses several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Exmoor National Park and the Cornish border. If you go and explore you’ll see why these areas have been awarded this very special status; this are some of the most diverse landscapes in the UK – wild and windswept clifftops, quiet rocky coves, sweeping sands with dunes and fantastic surf, the quaintest of coastal villages, and picturesque sheltered creeks. The coastline has a rich mix of flora and fauna, and you’ll find such varied beaches – for a good old seaside day out go to Westward Ho! and have fish and chips on the beach, for an air of Victorian elegance visit Ilfracombe and stroll along the promenade and through the gardens; if you can’t wait to hit the surf head for Croyde or Woolacombe, and for walks along the shore and fun with your dog on the beach head to Putsborough Sands and Saunton Sands.
