More About North Burrows Country Park

Northam Burrows Country Park is a 253 hectare grassy coastal plain at the mouth of the Taw/Torridge estuary which also includes the world-famous Pebble Ridge. 

The Northam Burrows is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) due to the spectacularly Pebble Ridge, the Great Sea Rushes (juncus acutus) and thirdly for the Water Germander (teucruium scordium) found only here and at Braunton Burrows on the Eastern shore of the estuary. 

 In the summer months and holiday season, there is a toll charge for the passage of vehicles onto the common.

The Burrows is home to the golf course of the Royal North Devon Golf Club

The Northam Burrows are noted for its bird life on the pasture and particularly wading birds visiting from the saltmarsh and estuary on the high or spring tides. 

The Burrows Centre can be found adjacent to Sandymere. There are toilet facilities, a small souvenir shop, information and Ranger services.
