North Devon is famous for its rugged coastline and beautiful beaches, its dramatic moorland scenery and much more. The region is filled with places of both natural and man-made appeal. This book takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the many delights of the area. Along the coast, from the spectacular Hartland Point where land meets the Atlantic Ocean, to the twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth on the edge of Exmoor, there are a myriad of fascinating places to visit, including the fishing village of Clovelly with its steep streets down to the harbour and the ancient ports of Bideford and Barnstaple. Inland, North Devon has many diverse attractions, from the ancient landscape of Exmoor, forests and rural countryside, attractive market towns and villages, historic buildings and magnificent country houses and gardens.
In 50 Gems of North Devon local authors Denise Holton and Elizabeth J. Hammett explore the many places and their history that make this part of the country so special.
