Away from our beaches there are castles and grand houses to visit, there are country towns and pastel coloured fishing villages to discover, and beautiful gardens to explore. Some of these include:

The wonderfully preserved Clovelly Village and Harbour, with its cobbled street leading past beautiful cottages down towards the harbour and its pebbly beach.

Lynton and Lynmouth two villages on the coast, one above the other, known by the Victorians as Little Switzerland. Lynton is an attractive village and 600 feet below is  small harbour of Lynmouth. The two villages are linked by a famous and ingenius cliff railway which is well worth a ride. Walks include up the river gorge to Watersmeet and west along the coastal path to the Valley of Rocks with its wonderful scenery and flock of wild goats.

Country Houses and Gardens include Arlington Court, and Tapeley Park (gardens).  There are also family days out like Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Exmoor Zoo, The Big Sheep and The Milky Way.
