Help and advice on buying property in North Devon

This part of Devon is often forgotten or avoided by people moving to the area or within the area as it does take that bit longer to get to, but when you’re there it is worth it as it is such a diverse area.

Ilfracombe has some of North Devon’s best restaurants, the Landmark theatre and plenty of rockpooling and crabbing for the children. Nearby Coombe Martin boasts the longest street over any village in the UK, sits on the edge of Exmoor and has wonderful coastal views.

North Devon’s oldest and largest town sits at the centre of the Tarka Trail, a 180 mile path with 32 miles of off road cycleway. Heading south from here you find Great Torrington, Holsworthy and Hatherleigh, all with their own character and surrounded by wonderful farmland.

If you’re looking for water then you have Bideford with its expansive waterfront and a quay made for strolling. Westward Ho is a place for the family with its 2 mile long sandy beach and at the mouth of the River Torridge sits Appledore, a quaint village.

The coast is not far away and have beaches to rival any in Cornwall. Woolacombe’s beach is recognized as one of the top 10 in the world. Croyde, not just the surfing mecca that is known but also a picturesque village. Saunton Sands with its top golf courses and miles of sandy beaches. All this area is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has been used as a location for many film and television productions.

On the western tip of North Devon you’ll find Hartland and Clovelly. Both with stunning coastlines but much more tranquil than most places. Having stayed at the hotel on the beach in Clovelly I know you can only drive down there if you’re staying at the hotel and you have park on the beach!

Call Nick or Gideon to discuss what you are looking for.
