In North Devon we are extremely lucky to have a dedicated wake park right on our doorstep! With loads of courses, ramps and runs for different abilities it’s a great day out for everyone. What’s more is they also have a large aqua park on site too!

SUP Yoga

This unique and skillful session is great for resting your mind while also enjoying the calming sense of the waters around you. OK, it might not be the most active on your list of things to do while in North Devon but we think it’s fab!

Coastal walking

We literally can’t say enough about the coastal walks in North Devon. Hundreds of miles of the South West Coastal Path runs by our door and we also have the Tarka Trail in our nearby town. Whether you want a more strenuous trek or an easy accessible walk there’s something for everyone!



With so many coastlines in the area around our site we always find a great variety of climbing rocks to attend during our sessions. We also have a range of indoor sites in North Devon too so whatever the weather you will be fixed for your climbing classes!

National Trust

If you’re into walking around stately homes and gardens then a visit to one or many of the National Trusts in North Devon is worth an afternoon whiling away the time. Whether you choose Arlington Court or a trip a bit further south to Knightshayes there are many National Trust areas in North Devon.

Theme Parks

For the adrenaline junkies, North Devon is home to two great theme parks The Milky Way and The BIG Sheep. OK, we have to come clean they are family-friendly so don’t expect Alton Towers or Thorpe Park but with both having a rollercoaster, one having a waterpark and the other having Sheep Racing (it’s a lot more fun than it sounds!!) there’s still plenty of things to do at each park.

Local breweries

The South West is famous for its cider, but did you know we also have our own gin, craft beers and a number of other home-brewed beverages? There are a number of breweries in North Devon – most of which you can visit to see their process and purchase drinks. See the whole CAMRA list here.

A holiday wouldn’t be complete without a little bit of retail therapy. Whether you want a few local souvenirs, or feel like splashing out on some luxury items there’s something for everyone in the local towns and villages.
