If you want an activity holiday, in our view, North Devon is one of the best places to come. The coast gives the opportunity for companies to host many outdoor activities that you can try out as a beginner or practice alone if you are more advanced. The most obvious are surfing and walking the cliff paths but have a glance down the list below, all things that can be done in the local area...........and when you need a break North Devon has many good eating places of different styles and prices.
Surfing lessons are available at Woolacombe, Croyde (10 minutes by car) and Saunton.
People of all ages are now togging up in hired wetsuits and trying out a lesson. The more sedate body boarding is hugely popular. Boards and wetsuits can be hired or bought at most beachlocations.
S.U.P - stand up paddle boards
Lots of fun when the sea is flatter. Board and paddle rental in the area.
Hire and group tours from a quieter piece of coast - please ask.
The local area hosts many golf courses of different standards ranging from Saunton Golf Club's championship courses to many "Pitch and Putts" - something to suit every standard.
Ilfracombe is a working harbour. Its from here that you can experience a sea fishing trip or stay on dry land and buy some of the freshest locally caught fish. Rock pooling - well we would suggest Saunton Sands rock pools as being the best in the area.
The specially prepared Tarka Trail cycle route is off road and can be picked up less than 4 miles from Spreacombe. This runs some 30 miles from Braunton via Barnstaple to Meeth and is essentially easy cycling with many cafes lining its route.
We can promise walkers spectacular views from the South West Coastal path at nearby Baggy, Morte and Bull Points, where seals can often be seen or walks across Braunton Burrows, a dune ecosystem of world importance. Follow the link for more information on local walks, Croyde, Lee Valley and Georgeham are the nearest places to Spreacombe mentioned.
