From spring walks in the countryside to sun drenched summer days on the beach, North Devon provides a perfect blend of experiences for the ultimate family holiday. Each season highlights the region’s natural delights from the rugged landscapes along the sandy shoreline to the undulating emerald pastureland that carpets the county. One idyllic coastal spot nestled on the edge of Exmoor National Park perfectly sets the scene for family adventures. Combe Martin is a little gem on the North Devon coastline providing days and weeks of fun for families of all sizes and ages. Activities and attractions are around every corner from rock pooling, kayaking and rock climbing to fun at Exmoor Zoo and Combe Martin Dinosaur and Wildlife Park.

Combe Martin not only offers families fantastic things to do in the surrounding area, there is also plenty of action on a stay at Sandaway Beach Holiday Park too. The abundance of kids’ clubs, free activities and heated outdoor pool with spectacular views gives them the chance to burn off that energy, whilst adults enjoy the fantastic accommodation and the recently renovated clubhouse packed with entertainment. There are hours of fun to be had and if you fancy enjoying the park’s surroundings, grab a bite to eat at the Smuggler’s Bar to soak up those incredible sea views.

Exploring a little further takes you down a winding pathway to a secluded spot known as ‘Mermaid’s Cove’ beach. With its striking backdrop and pretty rock pools, the children will enjoy hours hunting for sea creatures whilst you indulge in peace and tranquillity soaking up the sunshine. This beachside spot also offers easy access to the beautiful trails of the South West Coastal Path. Be amazed by captivating views out to sea and spectacular landscapes carved by the waters below. For active visitors to Combe Martin, a longer walk in either direction along this well-known route offers the chance to see other towns and villages nestled along the coast. Admire the impressive formations at the Valley of the Rocks or perhaps take the opportunity to explore Exmoor with its fascinating wildlife.
