Summer Breaks In North Devon

Summer is an amazing time of year to visit the North Devon coast, and usually the best weather in the country. Whether you are into walking, cycling, surfing, shooting, riding, visiting an historic site, or simply relaxing with some good food and a drink – North Devon has it all.

Most local beaches offer a full complement of water sports lessons & hire and of course North Devon is renowned for its many surf spots. Our team can recommend some of the best hidden beaches to visit, along with some of the best walks around the area. We’re a dog-friendly hotel too, so don’t forget your four-legged friend for some great summer walks.

Through a regular Summer, there are a number of free festivals and events which take place in the town and on the seafront. The town’s cinema, Pavilion Theatre and numerous galleries provide entertainment programmes featuring film, theatre and the arts.
