bster pots, fishing nets, cobbled yards, chandler's shops and sailing yachts are poignant reminders of this seaside resort's past as a major ship-building centre.

It boasts the largest covered dock in Europe and even has a smuggler’s tunnel, while pretty fishermen's cottages overlook the quayside.

A short ferry journey takes visitors to the sandy beaches of Instow.

The North Devon Maritime Museum offers an enthralling cocktail of sea-going history.

It also has a reconstructed Edwardian kitchen and a Victorian classroom.

Docton House, built by Cistercian monks who occupied it until the mid-16th century, is the village’s oldest building and is associated with local tales of witchcraft.
