Mon 2 April 2018: North Devon is a delightful mixture of dramatic coastline and magnificent moorland scenery, sprinkled with unspoilt resorts, bustling market towns and quaintly named villages.
Beautiful, wild, green North Devon. This corner of the south-west epitomises unspoiled rural England, with narrow lanes and a rugged coastline dotted with fishing villages. Memories are made here in as signs of spring begin to appear everywhere; there are spring flowers galore, and the sound of newborn lambs is starting to be heard.
