The West Country Sights



Braunton Burrows

Braunton Burrows Review

Bird-watching and miles of trails through the dunes are the draws at this sanctuary on the north side of the Taw estuary, the core of the UNESCO-designated North Devon Biosphere Reserve. Empty stretches of sand dunes have vistas of marram grass and the sea, and bird-watching is first-class, especially in winter. The flora is most colorful between May and August. Talks about wildlife and the local habitats are held in the Braunton's Countryside Centre in September and October, usually on Wednesday at 7:45. Tickets cost £3. The reserve is 18 miles southwest of Lynton.
