Blue-flag Putsborough beach is perfect for families, surfing, rock pooling and walking. Take the costal cliff path all the way to Baggy Point and watch seals swim and cormorants nesting on the rocks below. A little further along the path you reach Croyde with its picturesque cottages, coffee shops and post office. In the opposite direction, from the apartment walk along the coast path to Woolacombe and come back along the beach, or walk it the other way round! Woolacombe is an ideal centre for all kinds of adventure sports.........including surfing, kayaking, paragliding, coasteering, horse riding and much more. From Ilfracombe you can take a boat trip to Lundy Island or a coastal Wildlife Cruise, enjoy a day out on a sea fishing boat or saddle up and go horse riding on the beach or across the sand dunes and bridle ways. This 3 mile stretch of golden sand holds an 'England for Excellence Gold Award' and has been voted Best British Beach in the Mail on Sunday. It has won both Blue-flag and premier Seaside Beach Awards for its cleanliness, water quality and facilities. Lifeguards ensure safe swimming during the Summer and surfers come from all over England to enjoy the great waves and clean water.
If you want a trip inland you can hire bikes from Braunton or Barnstaple and cycle the Tarka Trail all along the estuary to Instow. This carefully maintained path is open to walkers and cyclists, but is particularly popular with cyclists, as the path is an old railway line, so is totally flat and very easily cycled by both young and old alike.
The Big Sheep, The Milky Way and Funder Zone will keep the children happy on wet days . For older children there is Mill Adventure Centre, Lets go Superbowl, quad biking and paint ball facilities.
There are many pretty towns and villages in the vacinity....Mortehoe, a beautiful stone village with tea rooms and pubs is a welcome stopping place for walkers and cyclists.
Ilfracombe, an ancient harbour town with its now famous Verity Statue and Rick Stein Restaurant.
Combe Martin, bordering the Exmoor National Park.
Barnstaple, the main market town, shopping centre and business centre in the North Devon region. The daily pannier market in the old market building is famous for its local food, produce, arts and crafts.
Covelly, with its steep cobbled streets, built into a cleft in a 400 ft high cliff. This pretty village is definately worth a visit, with its maritime atmosphere, stunning views and whitewashed cottages.
All the information and many more ideas can be found in a folder within the apartment.....there is always something new to do!
