The Natural Beauty of Devon

As we’re so inspired by the local beauty, it won’t surprise you that we think North Devon’s Heritage Coast doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves.

However, we know it’s a great place full of hidden gems and somewhere off the beaten track to explore, and to paint!

The coastline is in North Devon UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) covering 171 km2 of coastal landscape from Marsland Mouth on the Cornish border to Combe Martin on the edge of Exmoor and includes the Hartland Heritage Coast, the North Devon Heritage Coast and Braunton Burrows. Pretty impressively

If that’s not enough, you can also enjoy stunning panoramic coastal views across Bideford Bay to Lundy Island. The South West Coast Path is Britain’s longest national trail for walkers and it’s not too far away.

Westward Ho! is a focal point for surfers and the more adventurous among us. There are designated surfing areas and the RNLI Lifeguard service is available from May to September.

Nestled on the beautiful coastline are luxury homes, surf shacks and picturesque little cottages.

First and Foremost, Northern Devon is a beautiful holiday destination and it commands one of the most picturesque sea front positions imaginable. Those that come here have a passion for the area and a love for the scenery and so do we. This is why we’re so passionate about sharing the beauty of it through our artwork. There’s also incredible wildlife and people come from all over the world to see the hiking trails and bird watching opportunities.

Our artwork reflects so much of life here in Devon.
