Really good fish and chips and reasonably priced. They have a few tables if you want to eat there but even better to grab a takeaway and sit on the green opposite and watch the sun set

The spectacular cliffs at Hartland Quay with their incredibly contorted rock layers are always worth a visit and at low tide there is plenty of sand, rock pools and rocks to scramble over. In wild weather it is the perfect place to appreciate the power of the sea and wind as the waves crash against the cliffs and shore. With access to the South West Coast Path both North and South from the Quay, it makes an ideal start/finish point for a wide variety of walks

Visit Clovelly and step back in time. A dramatic cobbled street winds its way through achingly old white-washed buildings ending at a charming harbour below. Walk amongst seaside cottages that are steeped in history.

City/town information

The largest town in North Devon is Barnstaple on the River Taw. The town was a prosperous place in the past, at one time a major port particularly for the American trade. It remains a thriving market town with a traditional Pannier Market. Today Barnstaple has a partly pedestrianised centre and features many fine buildings and attractive narrow streets and alleys. The oldest surviving part of town is the Norman mound and remnants of the original Norman castle wall can still be seen. There is also the ornate Queen Anne’s Walk and the 13th century Long Bridge. Close by is the museum of North Devon.
