Our Favourite Attractions near Bideford Bay

Bideford Bay's privileged seaside location makes it the ideal base for adventures on North Devon's Coast.

Nearby, you'll find Clovelly, a historic fishing village with a unique cliffside setting. Traverse its steep cobbled high street to discover characterful cottages, a harbour and a shingle beach.

For more action on the sands, visit Woolacombe Bay, Croyde Bay or Westward Ho! They're renowned for their first-rate surfing conditions and they each have professional schools where you can learn to master the waves.

If you prefer your adrenaline thrills on dry land, the Milky Way Adventure Park and the Big Sheep are nearby.
