North Devon Biosphere – A Site of Natural English Beauty

North Devon’s Biosphere reserve is one of 668 reserves around the world that aims to improve the relationship between people and their environments, in order to conserve its landscapes, species and ecosystems.

Extending from the catchments of the River Tow to the River Torridge and reaching out as far as Lundy Island, North Devon’s biosphere core is at Braunton Burrows, with Saunton Sands Hotel amid the beauty of the burrows. As recognised by UNESCO as a site of specific interest, North Devon reserve is monitored by a biosphere team who run several projects to promote the care and conservation of the local environment and cultural heritage. As a result of their initiatives and sustainable development opportunities you can see how nature and people live harmoniously in North Devon.

Saunton Sands Hotel is at the centre of all this diverse natural beauty which means you are in the perfect position to visit the marine conservation zone at Lundy Island, the Culm Grassland at Heddon Green or the rugged moorland at Dartmoor.

Whether you choose to walk, cycle, surf or even ride a horse, the North Devon landscape is a beautiful playground to get closer to nature and its right on our doorstep.
