Welcome - East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

The East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) landscape is characterised by intimate wooded combes, vast areas of heathland, fertile river valleys and breathtaking coastal and hilltop views.  It includes the East Devon section of the Jurassic Coast - England's first natural World Heritage Site. It is a living, working landscape, shaped by many centuries of farming activity.

The 46 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty across the UK are part of the same family of protected landscapes which includes National Parks.
