Visit Woody Bay
Just west of Lynton, Woody Bay (known as Wooda Bay until 1901) is a beautiful and secluded beach situated below an ancient oak woodland area. The rock and pebble beach is reached by a fairly steep winding path, and there is a stream which flows down the hill. The area is a birdwatchers paradise, and there are amazing coastal walks to be taken. There is plenty of holiday accommodation around Woody Bay from camping grounds to romantic B&Bs.
Driving take the A361 towards Barnstaple, and then the A39 through Lynton and the follow signs for Martinhoe and Woody Bay.
