If you’re cruising the Atlantic coast, you’ll find Wanderlust Life in the North Devon village of Braunton. Endlessly inspired by the wild beauty of our environment, we put a little bit of the spirit of nature in each handmade piece we create. Our shop minutes from the golden sands of Saunton and our studio overlooks the tidal waters of the River Taw. Come visit if you can, and read on for our road trip hit list.
The younger sibling of Croyde’s fine dining destination, the canteen is a perfect post-beach pop-in for tacos and chips.
Only a short stroll from our shop and our pick for speciality coffee. The rotating menu of donut flavours? Nothing short of dreamy.
D-E-L-I-C I-O-U-S baked goods. Try their lunch special from 11:30am every Saturday. But get there early – it always sells out.
A super-friendly riverside restaurant famed for great pizza and steaks.
For Sunday roast Devon style, head to this traditional thatched inn dating to the 15th century.
A new artist-led contemporary gallery, project space and studios. Check out their events for intimate acoustic gigs.
View work by over 150 artists set across a meandering exhibit that covers the valleys and meadows of Broomhill Estate.
Located just off the car-free Tarka Trail, a new gallery and event space dedicated to photography and contemporary art.
Walk from Crow Point to Saunton Sands to get your steps in, then finish with a dose of healthy hedonism at Source Spa. Featuring prosecco, the indoor and outdoor pools and the thermal suite, twilight sessions start at £50.
Walk from Brownsham National Trust car park to the pebble beach at Blackchurch Rock. Check tide times first, and keep your eyes peeled for views of Lundy Island. The Farmers Arms in nearby Woolsery is a top choice for lunch.
An undulating walk that takes in rocky shores, woodland, fields, rugged coastlines and a fun old pub called the Grampus Inn, where you can reward yourself with a refreshing beverage and maybe a board game by the fire.
