The North Devon Coast
The North Devon coast is outstanding! That’s why this 171 square miles of coastline has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and if you come on a North Devon holiday you will discover this for yourself. If you enjoy spending time on the coast you will be sure to fall in love with this area, with its dramatic high cliffs, dune systems, rocky coves, sandy beaches and picturesque harbours.
Looking for a beach holiday? North Devon has plenty of beaches to choose from including miles and miles of family friendly sands, to out of the way coves with plenty of rock pools to explore. In Bideford bay you’ll find long stretches of sand at beaches of Croyde, Saunton and Westward Ho! as well as the pretty harbour villages of Instow and Clovelly. A bit further north there is still more sandy beaches to explore in the Woolacombe and neighbouring Combe Martin, as well as Ilfracombe’s lovely tunnels beaches.
Take a break from the beaches and put on your walking boots and explore the South West Coast Path which hugs the North Devon coastline. From Lynton take the coast path to the famous Valley of the Rocks, one of natures marvels and a great vantage point for panoramic views out to sea.
