Pocket Guide: Barricane Beach Barricane Beach Hotels

North Devon is packed with cultural gems and wonderful varied landscapes, and provides you with all you need for the perfect British holiday. The range of hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses is extensive too, so you'll easily find accommodation at a price to suit. One of the most picturesque and interesting stretches of the North Devon coastline is Barricane Beach, and you'll find it a bit unusual as beaches go and well worth a visit.

Barricane Beach from Devon Hotels

Barricane Beach is also known as Combesgate Beach, a rather more familiar nomenclature for this part of the world. It's tucked away amongst a range of jagged rocks and is famous for the unusual seashells that are washed up here, which include cowries and other exotic forms. This is a clue to the beach's alternative name, as the shells have travelled all the way from the distant Caribbean to finally wash up here in almost perfect condition after their journey across the Atlantic. As a result of this, Barricane Beach is protected as a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Devon Hotels for Cowries and Rock Pools

The main local beach here is at Woolacombe, about half a mile distant, but rock pool fans and surfers come here instead because the surfing conditions are great and there are plenty of rock pools to explore at low tide. Visitors are of course mainly looking for the Caribbean shells and they always come away delighted with the experience. The area is also popular with ramblers, as there are several good coastal walks in the immediate vicinity, especially towards Mortihoe. On top of all that, the water here is recommended by MCS (Microgeneration Certificate Scheme), so Barricane Beach is the ideal destination if you're looking for fresh air, exercise and interest on a day out from your Devon hotel or B&B. There is plenty of car parking nearby, and shops and cafés for refreshments and souvenirs. If you're bringing your dog along with you he'll be allowed on the beach too between October and April, and on a lead only from May to September.
