What to do on a week long family holiday in North Devon

North Devon is one the most popular holiday destinations in the UK but despite this, it still retains an old-world charm that keeps us coming back year after year. From the dazzling coastline of Saunton Sands to the medieval charms of Barnstable, there really is something for everyone in this magical part of the UK.

If you are coming for weeks’ worth of family holiday, you will need to plan everything with military precision. Kids like to be kept occupied so you need to plan activities for both sunny and rainy days. Other than the things to do and places to visit, you also have to decide where to stay, and there are lots of options to choose from.

North Devon holiday accommodation options
You will probably have a good idea of what type of accommodation you want for your weeks’ holiday, but a family favourite and a very popular choice are North Devon holiday cottage rentals. With a large selection of cottages to choose from, you really are spoilt for choice. Self-catering is always a great option for families as you are free to cook the kids’ favourites without having to rely on a pub or restaurant menu every night. Caravans and camping are also popular options but they don’t allow the same amount of space, convenience or comfort that holiday cottage rental offers.

Things to do in North Devon that families will love
Here’s a list of things that are suitable for families with children of all ages. There are of course many more things to do and places to go and a quick search through Google should lead you to them. Without further ado, here are 5 family favourites for those holidaying in North Devon.

1. Exmoor Zoo - Right on the edge of Exmoor National Park, this park is known for its wide selection of animals and also the great environment in which they live.
2. The Beach - With Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay and a few other hidden gems to choose from, you simply cannot go wrong with a day at the beach. Paddling, rock pools, sand castles and ice creams aplenty, what is there not to like!
3. Watermouth Theme Park and Castle - Entering this theme park is like a step back in time and with nostalgic displays, antique slot machines and even an underground fountain show. Some families visit twice during their weeklong break!
4. The Ilfracombe Aquarium - It is an aquatic wonderland that both the kids and adults will enjoy in equal measure. This award-winning aquarium is an all-weather attraction and is a family favourite for locals and tourists alike.
5. Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway - This very special railway is the UK’s only fully water-powered railway and the recipient of many awards. Lynmouth village is also a quaint and enchanting place where you can have an ice cream or lunch after your train ride. This place is very friendly with locals going out of their way to be of assistance.
