Braunton

Braunton is situated on the North Coast of Devon 5 miles west of Barnstaple. It derives its name from Brannock a Welsh priest who brought Christianity to the area in the 6th Century just prior to the arrival of the Saxons.

Braunton is described as one of the largest villages in the country. It is also situated next to the Braunton Burrows which is a large formation of sand dunes that are now a protected world heritage site as they have some important rare flora.

The village museum has been converted from a bakehouse and two cottages. It has some interesting collections on the railway, military and on Henry Williamson who wrote the Tarka the Otter novels.

Braunton is an ideal base to enjoy the golden sands of Saunton, Croyde and Putsborough as well as the dramatic coastline of the rest of North Devon.
