The invigorating coastline, boasting award-winning beaches offers a variety of activities: whether creating a sandcastle masterpiece; flying kites along the scenic coastline; venturing into the Atlantic waves to surf, dive, kayak or swim; the North Devon coastline has something for everyone, whatever the time of year.
The Hartland Peninsula in North Devon is a beautiful combination of sweeping valleys, tumbling waterfalls and dramatic cliffs, the perfect place to escape and unwind.
