Coast or country

Staying in North Devon gives you the choice between gorgeous views of the coastline or immersing yourself in rural tranquillity and you can pretty much guarantee that wherever you stay will give you a room with a view. As much of North Devon is within an area of outstanding natural beauty, you’ll be greeted with incredible sights whatever time of year you choose to visit.

If you’re someone who wants to take advantage of the watersport opportunities, you’ll likely want to stay near the coast so take a look at the accommodation in places like SauntonCroyde and Woolacombe while those of you who are looking for something quiet and rural might want to base yourself in Exmoor where you have the wild moor to explore.

Those of you that like getting back to nature will love the many camping opportunities available in North Devon, from wild camping on Exmoor to serviced sites with hard pitches and onsite showers. If you like the idea of being close to nature but don’t want to give up your home comforts, take a look at the glamping sites in this part of Devon. Not only do you get to experience the tradition of camping, but you get to stay in unique accommodation with everything from real, four poster beds to working toilets and even central heating!
