The North Devon Coastline

I woke up this morning and looked out my bedroom window, a thought popped into my head.  I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of waking up and seeing the sea out of my bedroom window.  I’m lucky enough to live in a gorgeous part of the country and sometimes I take for granted what is right on my doorstep.

Now the evenings are lighter and the fact we’ve had a great start to April, it does make me wonder, why do I wanderlust about exotic locations or quirky city breaks when I have amazing coastlines and places around me I could visit within half an hour.

The North Devon coastline features a lovely variety of scenery from stunning sandy beaches, quaint seaside villages and dramatic rugged cliffs.  The coastline is easily accessible via the South West Coastal Path which spans the south west counties all the way from Minehead to The Jurassic Coast in Dorset.   I have visited quite a few places along the North Devon coastline and have seen first hand how many people visit the area during school holiday season.

There are not enough words to describe the beauty of the area so I’ve showcased a few pictures to illustrate what a great part of the country it is to live and visit if you fancy a staycation.

    That looks lush! I wish I lived a little bit closer to the sea, coming from Birmingham my closest is Weston! xx

      Thanks Josie, it is a great place to live. On a great day you could mistake Sandy Bay for foreign sands.
