The West Country region
North Devon ranks as one of the most beautiful and varied areas of England. The stunning beaches of North Devon and its world renowned reputation for wildlife, nature and beauty set a most amazing backdrop for the coastal towns and countryside villages that make up the area.
The largest town in the area,Barnstaple, dates back 1000 years. With it's Pannier Market and diversity of shops it is a hub for retail therapy. For nature lovers, see the puffins on Lundy Island or visit the Exmoor National Park to discover the most stunning views.
Exmoor, one of the smallest of Britain's National Parks, is also known as Lorna Doone country as it is was the base of RD Blackmore's famous novel of the same name.
From the miles of fabulous golden beaches to the wild moorlands of Exmoor, from tiny villages tucked away in hidden valleys to bustling seaside towns, North Devon has it all.
The twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth are known as the Little Switzerland of England.
These two little villages grew slowly around two deep wooded river valleys in Exmoor. The Victorians made holiday centres of the towns and opened a cliff railway in 1890 to connect Lynmouth to Lynton, creating some stunning views. The railway still operates and is a magnate for tourists from all over the world.
The area offers something for everyone. For the sun seeker, the surfer or sandcastle builder there are some wonderful beaches. Just outside Lynton is Lee Bay. Within an easy drive the beaches at Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, Croyde, Puttsborough Sands and Westwood Ho! beckon. The National Trust has a number of properties open to the public, not to mention the miles of coastal footpaths. A visit to Arlington Court, Knightshayes Court or Dunster Castle will take a lot of beating. There are also many gardens to appreciate, especially RHS Rosemoor at Great Torrington and Marwood Hill near to Barnstaple. For the golfer there are courses to suit all abilities- Saunton Sands, Westwood Ho! at one extreme to the more gentle Willingscott Valley, Ilfracombe or Morthoe.
Exmoor National Park is on the doorstep waiting to be explored by horse, foot or cycle. There are plenty of riding stables in the area that cater for all abilities. The cyclist is well catered for. Tackle the Tarka Trail or navigate the area by mountain bike! Cycles can be hired locally. There is even a Jeep Safari to spot deer and other local wildlife. There are many walks from the apartment and it is easy to leave the car parked for several days. An example is the walk from the apartment to the intriguing Valley of the Rocks via North Walk, where you can spot buzzards and wild, yet docile, goats!
Water is important for the tourist. The sailor can launch his own craft in Lynmouth Harbour or take a trip on one of the organised excursions. The fisherman can try his luck at sea, in the local rivers or even in the reservoirs. Again, something for all tastes.
There are so many other ways to spend the days. Exmoor Zoo, Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Quince Honey Farm, Tropiquaria, The Milky Way Adventure Park or Ilfracombe Aquarium are but a small selection.
For those looking for shops there is Atlantic Village between Barnstaple and Bideford and further afield Exeter. The market and other small towns of the area, South Molton, Dulverton, Dunster, Porlock and Tiverton for example, are worth a visit.

"A truly lovely,comfortable,happy and relaxing experience."
The apartment is light and spacious.The view from all windows is very pleasing.if you're looking for peace and quiet this is for you.We thought it very comfortable and well equipped.We did find the electric cooker a bit of a challenge-but then we are used to gas!(plus you are on holiday after all!!) One more helpful tip-when using the over the bath shower you are advised to angle the shower head to the back wall or you'll get water on the floor! Otherwise-we highly recommend 18 Countisbury Views-you won't be disappointed!!

"A dream come true!!!!"
We booked Countisbury View for the week of our wedding in Lynton. With all the organising of the wedding we did not really have much time to think about the accommodation we were booked into. All I can say is when we walked in the apartment it was a "dream come true". The views from all rooms were magnificent. Being from the city made it even more breath taking. The owners of the apartment communicated well and left a lovely card wishing us a wonderful wedding which was a beautiful touch. I really do not know what more I can say other than this is a real gem and should not be missed.
