Picturesque North Devon has some of the most beautiful coastline in the British Isles, studded with tiny harbour-towns, quaint villages, excellent beaches and cliff-top walks, all designated as “an area of outstanding natural beauty”. North Devon is also bordered by the Exmoor National Park, renowned for its striking countryside, coastal views and herds of wild deer. Our base for this holiday is the ancient market town of Barnstaple*, reputed to be one of the oldest boroughs in the United Kingdom, set on the banks of the River Taw. (*Our June departure is based at the nearby resort of Braunton).
