Being a member of the Brend Hotels family means The Royal and Fortescue Hotel is connected to many other hotels in the South West of England, a region that's much loved for its golden beaches, surfing, scenery and plenty of natural beauty and wildlife.

Our hotel is lucky enough to based in the heart of Barnstaple, as from here we're within easy reach of everything North Devon coastline as to offer. Such as the beautiful cliffs, the rolling hills that overlook the sea and of course the many beaches such as Woolacombe, Saunton, Croyde and Westward Ho, plus many more!

Therefore, it's important to us that we share this news piece by Brend Hotels about North Devon beach cleans in 2018.

They've taken a look at how the region is a designated Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is also part of a Biosphere Reserve, meaning it has to be protected and cared for due to it's wildlife and precious areas of scientific interest. .

There are many beach cleans happening in North Devon on a regular occassion, so now is a great time to get involved if you've not done so before. There are several penciled in for the rest of the year at Saunton and Westward Ho! Plus we know more will be added. Plus, thanks to a wonderful work of charities we'll continue to look after the beaches that mean so much to us. 

One charity, called Surfers Against Sewage, have organised another Big Spring Clean event that will be taking place nationwide to bring everyone together in April, to help maintain the high standard of British beaches.

We therefore invite all our guest and friends to get involved however you can. If we all did a two minute beach clean everytime we visited the beach we can make North Devon a leading example for cleaning up plastic and rubbish from our shores.
