Have fun in North Devon this summer

Beach ranger Gudrun at a Rockpool Ramble

Join us for an action packed programme of events along the North Devon coast this summer where families can explore and enjoy this beautiful coastline. We’ve got lots of activities lined up to help kids find their wild side and get closer to nature.

Rockpool Rambles

Our Beach Rangers are now in place for the whole summer at Woolacombe. Join them throughout July and August for Rockpool Rambles and see what you can spot in the rockpools of Combesgate beach - a great chance to explore the coast at low tide, searching for crabs and other marine beasts with knowledgeable experts.

Tractor Trailer rides to Morte Point

At a more sedate pace are the Tractor Trailer rides every Wednesday from Mortehoe out to Morte Point and Bull Point to see the seals. This is a beautiful drive. 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.
