Nestled on the edge of Exmoor, the town offers stunning views, a peaceful cove and a picturesque harbour. We have time to enjoy this beautiful setting before making our way to our second stop, Ilfracombe, the well-known seaside resort which features a small harbour surrounded by cliffs. Here we can experience the local charm at the local independent craft shops or take a walk around the harbour with a cone of chips or an ice cream in hand. Lastly, we depart for Woolacombe, famous for its award-winning beach and the perfect final stop on this wonderful day exploring the coast.

Since Saxon times, Barnstaple has served as a market town to the surrounding countryside. You can expect a unique shopping experience with everything from local produce, flowers and crafts to prints, pictures and fashion on offer.

Woolacombe
It's easy to see why visitors return year after year to the seaside resort of Woolacombe, a real gem on the spectacular North Devon coast. Offering lovely views across to Lundy Island, the stunning three-mile beach has won a whole host of awards, including the Best Beach in the UK on Tripadvisor and a Premier Seaside Beach Award for its cleanliness.
There are a range of activities on offer, from dune running and zorbing to horse riding and surfing, or you can take a catamaran trip to soak up the glorious scenery while looking out for seals and dolphins. The village itself is renowned for its friendly atmosphere and there are plenty of cafés, restaurants and shops to discover.

Barnstaple
Bursting with medieval charm, Barnstaple is the largest town in North Devon and one of the oldest boroughs in England. The ancient town has a rich history and was granted its charter in 930AD by King Athelstan, the grandson of Alfred the Great. Barnstaple remains a thriving market town and is characterised by its picturesque narrow streets, historic buildings and preserved centre.
Discover the remnants of the Norman castle in the oldest part of the town, stroll along the 13th-century Long Bridge and learn more about the history of the area at the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon, where the displays range from prehistoric times to the Victorian era. There are also plenty of lovely cafés and restaurants as well as a range of shops, from quirky boutiques and traditional family businesses to high street favourites.
