Visit Bucks Mills Beach

Off the beaten path Bucks Mills Beach is a secluded rocky cove on the North Devon coast backed by ancient woodland. It is a quiet beach, great for relaxing away from the holiday crowds just east of Clovelly, popular with fishing enthusiasts and walkers.

Artist retreat

Look out for the artist cabin on the path to the beach. From the 1920’s until the 1970’s the Bucks Mills Cabin was used by artists Judith Ackland and Mary Stella Edwards as a studio. Today it is managed by the National Trust and has selected artists in residence.

There are holiday chalets in the valley beyond the forest.
