North Devon has interesting and historic attractions, good leisure facilities and a fabulous choice of things to see and do for all ages.

The area showcases fantastic routes for walkers' and cyclists' along the South West Coastal Path. But of course, the true primary draw for visitors is the ocean and North Devon has maximised its potential by supporting a strong water-sports scene that includes surfing, sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, kitebuggying, coasteering, paddle-boarding, and many more.

North Devon's regional centre is Barnstaple, where you'll find the main business, commercial, leisure, shopping venues and High street. There's also plenty of interest to be found in the slightly smaller towns of Ilfracombe, Bideford, Torrington and South Molton which offer a quainter historic feel. Those looking for a quieter time will love the beautiful coastal villages of Croyde, Woolacombe, Braunton, Saunton and Georgeham. These are some of the most desirable places to visit, as they combine a cosy village feel with great beaches.

A visit to Lundy Island which is three and a half miles long and half a mile wide is well worth a visit!  There are regular boat trips available from Ilfracombe and Bideford.  Lundy Island with its protected marine life, has restored buildings including a 13th century castle and there are no cars on the island - exploration is by foot or bike! The peace and tranquillity of the island are magnets to those who wish to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  Those who are a little more adventurous can climb, walk, canoe or dive! The island is renowned for its puffins and dolphins are regularly seen on the trip across and around the island.
