    The absolute highlight of our trip to North Devon. Despite the cold and blustery evening, we were delighted to catch the final show of the season.
    We smiled from ear to ear from start to finish. A thoroughly enjoyable evening which whizzed by far too quickly!
    A lovely family friendly, COVID secure, activity that we are still talking about more than a week on.

    A simply staggeringly beautiful part of the coastline. Well worth the effort of getting up the hill and enjoying getting your heart rate up

    Went to St Sabinus on Christmas morning and we have not enjoyed a service so much in a long time. Truly a lovely family occasion.

    Beautiful area with some fantastic walking. Not bad to get to though It's actually quite challenging walking the path further east. Really picturesque and stunning wonderful scenery. We saw some seals at low and mod tide on some rocks about 500m west of more point.

    The beach is not always accessible due to rock falls etc but the landscape and scenery above and beyond is absolutely stunning. It's quite remote but can be reached from a few points You also may walk past this area if walking the coast path. The paths can be steep and stengerous but the views are outstanding.

    We booked Woolacombe Surf Centre for a 2 hour private lesson for a hen party. Ray and Oli were great instructors, made the lesson safe but fun. They were able to cater for different abilities, taking people more capable to the bigger waves whilst supporting and giving tips to everyone else. We had all mostly surfed a bit before and they gave us some great tips and encouragement on how to improve. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for a great morning!! 🏄‍♀️

    Friendly, professional staff. Jaz took my two grandchildren in the water for a surfing lesson, and gave them a super session although both were different abilities. Would definitely book again. Also very helpful when we went back to purchase a winter weight wet suit.

    A truly amazing experience. I felt so safe and secure with Sam. He is extremely knowledgable about the area and explained all I needed to know.
    But honestly it was the most gentle extreme experience I have ever had.
    We hovered over a buzzard and it was like stepping into a serene parallel universe in seconds.
    I highly recommend this to anyone.

    Fantastic experience! We all loved it - particularly my 11 year old! The peaks at Hele Bay were brilliant. We felt very safe at all times; excellent leaders and the winter wetsuits were a real touch!
