Hidden Gems


Wanderlust Life is perched on the edge of the Atlantic in the North Devon village of Braunton. Our shop is on the road to Saunton Sands – a three-mile stretch of golden beach – and our studio overlooks the tidal waters of the River Taw. We’re perpetually inspired by the wild beauty of this part of the world, and there’s a little bit of the spirit of nature in each handmade piece we create. If you’re in the area don’t forget to pop by and enjoy our roundup of fun stops along the way.
