Escape to Woody Bay

Back in 2016 the BBC2 programme Escape to the Country was filmed in North Devon

For those who don't know, it's a property programme with potential purchasers being shown around three different properties they might like. The programme also features a local attraction, which is why they came to Woody Bay on Friday 8th July.

The programme (also featuring three properties in North Devon) was broadcast this week (3pm Tuesday 12th September). If you missed it you can still watch it on BBC iPlayer HERE. We are about 35 minutes in.
