Lots of things to see and some interactive activities. Picture boards of the flora and fauna. Helpful, knowledgable staff. Well worth a visit if you want to know more about the Burrows and what you might see there.

Small attractive museum about the countryside round braunton. Informative displays. Lots of child engagement which goes beyond just pressing buttons eg large screen microscope, matching games, videos, fish tank. Friendly staff. Well worth an hour if you're in the area

Parked in the car park to view the town. Good selection of little shops and places to eat. Very busy cross road. The countryside centre was our last stop before we left. Really good little centre.

Situated in the old Barnstaple Railway station, this centre is a treasure trove of information about the local flora and fauna. Very friendly and helpful attendants.

A few more photographs of what went on during our visit. It was a looong day, before heading back to our hotel. The amusing thing was. That I used the Satnav for the car park.🤣 This took us approx two miles from the actual car park. As went were directed down a short winding country lane. Came to a T junction at the end, and according to Satnav, the Saunton Sands carpark was directly on our right!! 🤣 It wasn't, but a local farmers field was. The farmer put us right, by telling us to continue down the way we were facing for about a half mile onto a main road T junction, and there was a road sign point left to the Saunton Sands. Approx 1.5 miles on a straight drive. There on our left was a sign to the beach car park. The cost was £8 For all day, with a few shops immediately next to the gravel car park. We found the restaurant there to be quite expensive. As two breakfast meals of pancakes and bacon, and two lattes cost a phenomenal £23. Just be aware of that folks. With regards to the car park. Your picture is taken, and you pay when leaving. Clever technology being used here. When leaving just be careful. As the T junction main road at the exit is narrow, and depending on traffic, care needs to be taken. Especially if turning across oncoming traffic.

A small but very interesting centre that is worth visiting, particularly with children. Excellent explanations regarding the local nature and in particular, about Braunton Burrows which are very worthwhile walking through.
