North Devon has an incredible diversity of lansdscapes: the beautiful golden surf beaches of Putsborough, Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton; the amazing coastal cliffs, some of the highest in Britain, rising to over 800' above the sea.
Then there's the lush green rolling countryside for which Devon is so famous and the deep wooded valleys around Lynton with ancient oaks and rivers tumbling over giant boulders. And then of course the rugged wilderness of Exmoor - quite breathtaking in its desolation with stories of Lorna Dune and the terrifying brigands. Not forgetting the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Braunton Burrows, the fishing port of Appledore, still landing locally caught fish and Ilfracombe now boasting Damien Hirst's 65' sculpture, Verity.
The main 'county town' in Barnstaple with all the normal stores and supermarkets, as well as some smaller shops. And lots of visitor attractions for families - both the cultured (National Trust etc) and those for pure entertainment for children (Big Sheep to name but one of many)
The coastal villages are full of welcoming pubs, good food, and show a vibrant live music scene here in this part of the South West. Of course there is the traditional and original Devon Cream Tea (scone, cream, jam NOT as in Cornwall where it is scone, jam, cream) and lots of sea faring tales of pirates, smugglers and shipwrecks. Some may have been embellished through the ages, but they make captivating stories for both children and adults alike.
Places of interest in the region include:
- Lundy Island, a Pirates' hideaway in years gone by, now owned by The Landmark Trust. It is well serviced by day trip boats from Ilfracombe
- Clovelly: a world famous fishing village in North Devon, built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff. The cobbled street tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port. It is famous for its donkeys, which traditionally carry goods up the hill; sledges bring things down. There are links with Charles Kingsley, Turner, Dickens and the Spanish Armada.
- National Trust's Arlington Court - a splendid regency house and gardens full of the Chichester's collections. Other properties in the region include Knightshayes and Killerton House.
- Panier Market and Butcher's Row, Barnstaple - a must visit for foodies.
- RHS Rosemoor - 65 acres of both formal and informal gardens - as well as woodland walks, water features and open spaces - there is something for children and adults alike to enjoy time and again.
- Dartington Crystal, Torrington - at the award winning visitor centre you can watch the live demonstration of glassmaking and try the many hands-on activities we have to offer, as well as seeing the museum collection. The shop has lots of tempting goodies.
There are so many things to do in and around Croyde but probably surfing is the activity Croyde is best known for.
Anyone can have a go, if you would like surf lessons – we know the best instructors – solo or in a group. Example cost, £40 for a half day (2 hours) session including board and wetsuit. Coasteering – you'll be equipped with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet before setting off round the cost with an instructor, leaping - lemming-like - off the cliffs … as low or as high as you like! Cost at £40-£50 per person depending on group size and season.
Fishing - boats go out from Ilfracombe approx 8 miles away weather permitting.
Horse riding - Croyde has a riding stables.
