The North Devon Coast in England’s South West has much to offer.
Whether you’re a tourist, or a rambling enthusiast, or a holidaymaker in search of a quick UK break, you’re on the write trail along the beautiful North Coast Devon because it offers pleasures in spades.
Writers such as Henry Williamson who wrote Tarka the Otter, Charles Kingsley (The Water Babies) and Rudyard Kipling all lived and authored books in North Devon.
The beautiful and diverse North Devon Coast
A dramatic coastline with soaring cliffs above lovely beaches will take your breath away. Inland you’ll find rolling green hills and quaint villages.
The North Devon destinations of Clovelly, Appledore, Woolacombe, Croyde, Lynmouth (known as Devon’s ‘Little Switzerland’, Lynton, Instow, or Hartland are just a handful of scenic places you might choose to base yourself to explore the North Devon coastline.

I’ve never been to those places. They are all interesting!
Ahh, Devon is lovely. Especially North Devon, but I’m a little biased! Hope you get there one day too.

North Devon does, indeed, look like a lovely area to explore. I’d love to stop over in Appledore.
Appledore is so quaint and interesting Carole. So much to explore in a tiny place 🙂
What a beautiful area the North Devon coast looks to be. I love the character of the villages and seaside cottages. Thanks for the new travel destination inspiration.
Thanks for popping by Cathy 🙂
Funnily enough, although I’ve been to Devon very many times, I’ve hardly ever been to the north coast. So thanks for showing me some of the places I’ve missed!
Hi Karen, It’s funny but so many people head to the south coast of Devon, and the north is more remote and wild. Thanks for popping by 🙂
At first I misread the deadline as ‘places to miss!’ Glad it was the opposite. I’d love to do the coastal walks.
Hello Kristin – haha! That would have been a much better title probably for clicks!
I’ve been to England many times, but never Devon. You certainly offered a lot of reasons to get there sooner rather than later! Thank you for a great post and lovely photography!!
Thank you Marilyn – I’m glad you enjoyed the post. It is truly a beautiful part of the world 🙂
I’ve not yet been to Devon. but your photos of the North Devon coast make me want to go there. It looks full of adventure and natural beauty as well.
It’s such a beautiful area Doreen. Much wilder than south Devon 🙂
I’ve done South Devon but not North Devon- Iove that coastline though
Hi Carol, South Devon is lovely … I think North Devon is a little more rugged. Hope you get there one day 🙂 x
It’s very true that those places are like wonderful beauty. You have selected all the beautiful zones. As a travel lover, I don’t want to miss a single place od North devon cost. Its a perfect place for spending a wonderful vacation. Especially the beaches and the environment of the seaside area. I know about Saunton Sands beach, its popularity as a longboard surfing location.
Great post and lovely pictures – Devon is a fantastic place to visit (and to live). I’m more familiar with South Devon so I’ll definitely have to check out some of these highlights! It’s great that it’s a county which has so many different beautiful areas and things to do. I’ve always heard great thing about Woolacombe so will have to check that out.
Hi Sophie, all of Devon is gorgeous isn’t it 🙂
Such beautiful countryside and coastline Jo. I love the colourful houses in Westward Ho. I probably should add Devon to my ever-growing bucket list!
