The North Devon Coast

A private guided tour of this beautiful coastline and landscape.

Let us show you some of the country’s most charming fishing villages: discover the timeless Clovelly, where the steep cobbled street tumbles down past gleaming white cottages to the tiny, deep-blue harbour. Known by the Victorians as ‘Little Switzerland,’ Lynton and Lynmouth are twinned coastal villages one above the other: Lynton was part of the inspiration for Richard Doddridge Blackmore’s novel Lorna Doone, while 600 feet below is the small harbour of Lynmouth. The two villages are linked by the famous Cliffside railway opened in 1890 and still operating today.

For visitors with more time, we can visit Dunster with its evocative castle, and the jewel in Exmoor’s crown Porlock. Literary fans will love to hear about connections including Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who lived at Nether Stowey, where his 17th century cottage still stands.
