Local Area  

North Devon is an amazing place to visit with great scenery and an abundance of beaches, including some excellent surfing spots. The historic towns and villages are a must-visit, including the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly. North Devon is divided into two by the estuaries of the River Taw and River Torridge. On the banks of the River Torridge is the pleasant village of Instow with its sandy beach, looking across to Appledore, a town well worth a visit. 
 
Below the estuary is the surfing & kite surfing beach at Westward Ho! Further west is Clovelly and the headland at Hartland Point. Further south is a small beach at Hartland Quay. 
 
Recently, as well as the beautiful working harbour Ilfracombe has become famous for a 66 foot bronze-clad sculpture named Verity created by world famous artist Damien Hirst. Click here for more information. 

Beaches 

North of the River Taw and Torridge are the big surfing beaches at Saunton Sands , Croyde Bay , Putsborough and Woolacombe. From Woolacombe there is good walking around Morte Point and Bull Point. On this part of the coast there are beaches at Rockham Beach and further west Lee Bay. 
 
Further west on the coast is Ilfracombe and the beach at Hele Bay. Further west again is the town of Combe Martin and Wild Pear Beach. At the far east of the North Devon coast are the twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth, which are well worth a visit.
