In the summer months and school holidays activities in North Devon can sell out fast. Coronavirus has had a compound effect in that some places that previously did not require booking in advance now do. Whilst we have tried to make the information on this site as accurate as possible but things change. Please make sure that you do your own research and refer to the websites of specific attractions, places and activities to make sure that you have the most up to date information. It’s well worth planning any particular things that you’d like to do on your trip so that you can book well in advance and avoid disappointment. With all attractions, restaurants and villages please check details before travelling to ensure that you are aware of the latest impacts of coronavirus.
