Miles of unspoilt coastline that inspired Rudyard Kipling

A quiet but most beautiful stretch of rugged cliffs, sheltered valleys and ancient woodlands.

Explore Brownsham and Hartland which has miles of unspoilt cliffs, bays and waterfalls with woodland valleys and grassland.  

When visiting the historic fishing village of Clovelly, make your way to the small leafy park of Mount Pleasant with fantastic views across Bideford Bay.

Explore where cars cannot go; wander down peaceful Peppercombe Valley which is home to a variety of wildlife such as orchids and butterflies, with woods abounding in deer, badgers and foxes. Enjoy the secluded beach and beautiful views, a real treat all year round.

The historic greenspaces of Kipling Tors and Burrough Farm are found on the edge of Westward Ho! and the Torridge Estuary. Rudyard Kipling played in Kipling Tors as a school boy.

The craggy cliffs of South Hole are on the site of Embury Beacon, an Iron Age hill fort.
