Easter Breaks

Easter Breaks In North Devon

In North Devon, Easter is the time of year when the region emerges from its winter hibernation and becomes the go-to holiday destination. It has been a favourite seaside stop since the early days of the Victorian era, when the railways opened up the possibility of travel for millions and a dip in the ‘old briny’ first became a holiday ritual. Ilfracombe still retains much of the original Victorian coastal charm, as evidenced in the architecture of one the West Country’s most picturesque seaside towns with its narrow streets, unfussy harbour, town cove beaches and coastal views.

North Devon Seaside

For visitors this Easter, you can’t ignore the smorgasbord of sea-based activities available. These range from taking a refreshing trip at Tunnels beaches, surfing the waves at nearby Woolacombe (10 minutes by car), which was recently voted the best beach in England by Trip Advisor travellers choice, or coasteering with H2Outdoor to get a seal’s view of the beautiful North Devon coastline.

For some, even a warm layer of neoprene and the exaltation of ‘it’s not too bad once you’re in!’ is still not enough to be coaxed into the water, and there’s no harm in that either. There are few simpler pleasures in life than beachcombing for shells, rock pooling for crabs or joining one of the region’s regular beach cleans to get a sense of well-being. North Devon is blessed with many beaches – from wide expanses of golden sand to intimate secret coves.
