Explore the North Devon Coast the easy way on our all weather trailer, and learn more about the wildlife and wrecking history of this breathtaking coastline.
Lead Ranger Jonathan Fairhurst says “This is a beautiful drive out to the wild headland of Morte Point. We usually see Grey Seals in the small coves below, also there’s a chance to see Peregrine Falcons and Kestrels as well as fantastic displays of wildflowers. It is a great place to see some amazing wildlife but also learn about the dark past of wrecking on Morte Point.”
