Simple pleasure & quality time


Getting back to nature and simple pleasures is a sure-fire way for your family to escape the rat-race and take a screen-break. Take a trip to visit quaint fishing villages, eat fresh-off-the-boat seafood or, better still, catch your own. Go on buggy-friendly strolls, hike along the North Devon coast via the South West Coast Path and watch seals frolic on shorelines. Paddleboard to secret coves and play in the surf at the sandy beaches of Croyde, Saunton and, or course, Woolacombe. Feel the cool rush of the Atlantic or discover the natural beauty of Exmoor National Park and the Devon countryside.

Have fun building sandcastles on the beautiful beach at Woolacombe, go on scavenger hunts, relax and let the sun-toasted sand warm your skin. Poke around in the clear pools left by the waves or hunt for pretty seashells. It’s all possible on a family holiday in Devon!
