North Devon AONB

  • About:

    The North Devon Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) represent a stunning section of the coast which is nationally protected to preserve the beauty of its landscape. Situated in the heart of North Devon's UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the AONB covers 171 km2 of coastal landscape from Marsland Mouth on the Cornish border to Combe Martin on the boundary of Exmoor National Park and includes the Hartland Heritage Coast, North Devon Coast and Braunton Burrows.

    The North Devon AONB contains a diversity of scenery, landscapes and habitats, enhanced by its rich and varied wildlife. In spring, woods full of bluebells and displays of hedgerow primroses are spectacular, but for those who wish to explore further, there are numerous rare and protected species and sites to discover. The North Devon AONB works to promote and protect our biodiversity and geodiversity, environmental quality and climate, historic environment and natural landscape character.
