There are a few beaches at Woolacombe; the main beach, Combesgate, Barricane. Great opportunities for seascapes and sunsets. Low tide is at 4:49pm. Sunset around 9:28pm.

Following our photographic activities we plan to head over to the Red Barn for refreshments.

13th June: Codden Hill

On our last visit we were lucky enough to see the full harvest moon rising. In fact, we saw the sun setting in one direction and the moon rising in the other. We didn't know where to look! We'll be there the day before the full moon this time, with it rising at 8:51pm. Sunset will be 9:31pm. Hope for clear skies, the view from up there is spectacular.

Meet in the car park at 6:30pm or we'll see you at the top by the monument.


20th June: Heddons Mouth/Hunters Inn

This a lovely spot for a stroll along the river to capture images of the water and wildlife. At Heddons Mouth where the river meets the sea the landscape/seascape is rugged and beautiful.

Meet at 6:30pm in the car park at Hunters Inn. Pay at machine, free for National Trust members.
