Woolacombe Wildlife The North Devon coast is a haven for wildlife, perfect for those wanting to explore the great outdoors and spot the animals that call this landscape their home. The wild headland of Morte Point is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and affords visitors the chance to see kestrels, or walk on the coastpath to spot seals basking in the secluded coves below and, if you’re lucky, see dolphins frolicking in the surf. Hop aboard a boat to Lundy Island to spot puffins, seabirds and the occasional basking shark frequenting the mild Devon waters. The open moorland of Exmoor National Park is renowned for its dramatic coastal views, offering guests plenty of opportunities to enjoy romantic walks and lengthy hikes within the peaceful surroundings amidst wild ponies and tweeting birds.
