Royal North Devon at Westward Ho! can rightly claim to be the cradle of English Golf. Founded in 1864, it is the oldest golf course in the country and is regarded as the St Andrews of the South. The golf course is as tough as any of the UK’s more famous links layouts and has recently been placed in Golf World 's "Top 100 Courses in the World" that a golfer “must play”.

2 Courses and 36 Holes of beautiful championship links golf, set in the heart of North Devon. The land at Saunton Burrows has hosted golf since 1897 and given us today’s premier golf course in the West Country since Herbert Fowler (famed designer of Walton Heath, The Berkshire, and Delamere Forest to name just a few) created the East course in the 1920s.

The Tarka Trail

The Tarka Trail is a pedestrian and cycle way in the North Devon Biosphere Reserve. It runs in a 163 mile figure-of-eight through landscapes little changed from those described by Henry Williamson in his classic 1927 novel Tarka the Otter. Parts of it coincide with the South West Coast Path.
