North Devon holiday cottages

The craggy coastline leading the South West Coast Path through Bideford Bay, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty takes you into pretty coastal towns such as Lynton and Lynmouth and through rural greenery. The cobbled hillside private fishing village of Clovelly evokes an era of days gone by. The quiet sandy stretches are perfect for beach days and water sports, surfing, kite surfing and rowing.

Deep in the countryside you can find Exmoor Zoo and the Gnome Reserve as well as the Big Sheep and the Milky Way two theme parks where you can meet aliens and feed lambs.
