The winding streets of the fishing port of Appledore are well worth a visit, as is the historic and very picturesque fishing village of Clovelly.
For a spot of shopping there is the nearby Atlantic Village outlet centre, close to The BIG Sheep theme park, so there is something for the whole family in this wonderful area of Devon.
