About Braunton Burrows
The Burrows are a spectacular sand dune system on the north coast of Devon. They border the north of the Taw / Torridge Estuary sandwiched between the sea and Braunton Marsh. Their ecological importance has been recognised by the United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) designating the Burrows as the core of the North Devon Biosphere Reserve ranked alongside Mount Vesuvius and the Danube Delta for their international significance. They are a large area; 6 km running north to south and about 1.5 km across. The Burrows are privately owned but visitors are welcome to visit - to enjoy and respect the rich abundance of the Burrows.
