10 of the best locations for landscape photography in North Devon

Grab your camera and head to one of these North Devon landscape photography locations!

North Devon has so many picturesque and photogenic locations that it can often be overwhelming to know where to visit for photo opportunities. To help you out and to give you some inspiration I’ve come up with my top ten North Devon photography spots to visit for landscape photography.

1. Westward Ho!

Westward Ho! is the only town in Britain to have an exclamation mark in it’s name! It has a vast sandy beach that extends for two miles north of the village ofWestward Ho! and is backed by a pebble ridge. The pebble ridge leads onto the the grassy plains and salt marshes of Northam Burrows.
Westward Ho! has numerous beach features which make excellent subjects for landscape photography including groynes, rock formations, sea pool, remains of a Victorian pier, rock pools, beach huts as well as the vast sandy beach.

2. Instow

Instow is on the estuary where the rivers Taw and Torridge meet, between the villages of Westleigh and Yelland and on the opposite bank of Appledore. The beach is perfect for photography as it enjoys few waves because of the sandbanks at the mouth of the estuary cancelling out most of the ocean swell. There are also a large number of boats anchored on the sand which make great subjects. Further down the beach towards Yelland there is a wreck and old jetty.

3. Hartland Peninsular

The spectacular cliffs at Hartland Quay with their incredibly contorted rock layers are always worth a visit and at low tide there is plenty of sand, rock pools and rocks to scramble over. This wildly beautiful bay offers an ancient quay as well as some some of the most spectacular geology in Northern Europe,
