North coast beaches in Devon & Cornwall

From the dramatic sweep of Watergate Bay up to the windswept headland of Hartland point, Cornwall and Devon’s north coast beaches offer something for everyone. Best of all, most of it’s easily accessible by the South West Coast Path.


Crackington Haven

This amazing looking little bay is sheltered from the north by the cliffs of Pencannow and by the headland of Cambeak to the south.

Sandymouth (Bude)

A National Trust car park can lead you to this lovely beach but beware at low tide when swimming can be dangerous.  Life’s a Beach is a great cafe there for you.

Trebarwith with its vast cliffs, dark caves and fine golden sand.  Gull Rock is almost reminiscent of a dog’s head, keeping watch off shore.  This is the sort of idyllic Cornish beach that features in many tourist brochures.

The closest beach to the town with level access from the Summerleaze car park, but also approached via the Downs or from the Canal at low tide.

Not An Average Holiday Site!  - Tripadvisor.co.uk 2022

Woodovis is AMAZING. Perfect size pitches. Eco friendly, outstanding facilities, extremely clean toilets and showers. The heated pool and hot tub were perfect and that was before we used the therapy room. There’s a doggie spa, games room & all of this powered by the solar panels. We absolutely loved and enjoyed our break and will definitely be back. Have also recommended to everyone and anyone we speak to!

You’ve done a great job Woodovis team, we would definitely come back!

Lovely Peaceful Holiday Site  - Tripadvisor.co.uk 2022

We stayed in a Super Finch caravan, which was so comfortable and well furnished. The park is not far from Tavistock, so close to shops etc. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The pool was great! We found the park to be ideal for exploring other places in the area and was so peaceful which made for a perfect breakaway!
