This Easter we had a lovely holiday in North Devon. Whilst I love going abroad for the weather, there is nothing better than exploring our own country and all it has to offer. Parkdean currently have a competition running to win a break at one of their sites in Cornwall or Devon. I have had a go myself but really need to scrub up on some of the local views. If you are lucky however, you might like to know what is in store for you if you choose to visit North Devon.
1. Make the most of Devon with the National Trust. If you are off to North Devon, it may well pay to get a National Trust Membership. There are a number of beach car parks which are free if you have membership. We also visited Knighthayes and Arlington Court.
2. There are a number of attractions to choose from. I have friends who have recommended The Milky Way theme park and the Quince Honey Farm. We went to The Big Sheep which is well equipped to entertain you even if the weather isn't its best. There are talks about the animals, rides and a soft play area.
3.Enjoy the beautiful beaches. The weather wasn't the best when we visited Devon, but that didn't stop us from visiting the beaches. The boys loves climbing the sand dunes. Lynmouth had some fantastic rock pools filled with anemones.Whilst we visited Sandymouh when the tide was in and there wasn't a great deal of sand, it was beautiful and kept the boys entertained.
4. Lynton and Lynmouth are joined by a cliff railway. When we visited it was actually celebrating 150 year anniversary and had a visit from Princess Anne. There are lots of little shops to look around and big man was excited to buy clotted cream fudge.
5. You can't go to Devon or Cornwall without having a cream tea. I have to confess I probably ate mine in Devon all wrong. Apparently it's cream first and then jam.
Have you been to North Devon? Where would you recommend?
I have received a Cream Tea Hamper for sharing this competition
