THIS MONTH'S DESTINATON:
North Devon & Exmoor
Country breaks with a seaside twist
The thing about North Devon is that it has it all; if it is a peaceful beach, a big adventure, a beautiful landscape or wildlife you crave for in the county, North Devon will make your dreams come true. It all becomes priceless when you visit the timeless private village of Clovelly and walk along the cobbled path to the tiny 14th Century fishing deep-blue harbour as a hot gleam of sunlight falls upon the white cottages along your way or see and/or participate in the birth of a foal to a mare on a Stud!
