|A multi-faceted seaside resort that grew as a result of salt panning in the estuary of the River Otter, this picturesque Devon town lies in the shadow of spectacular cliffs.|
It was while staying at a
house near the beach that the 19th century
artist Sir John Millais started his famous
painting, ‘The Boyhood of Raleigh’, which is
featured on the town’s sea wall.
The estuary itself is now a salt marsh and has become an important haven for wildlife and seabirds.
