This beautiful coastal reserve near Shaldon offers stunning views over Lyme Bay. We took on this piece of land to help secure the future of the Cirl Bunting, a rare bird whose population is almost entirely restricted to south Devon. Labrador Bay is also home to many other key species, including Peregrines, Buzzards and Yellowhammers. Out in the bay, dolphins and Basking Sharks swim, while butterflies and bees flit in the meadows and fields.

Labrador Bay is part of a working farm grazed by cattle in the summer and sheep in the winter. Habitats here include coastal cliff top, woodland, scrub and low-intensity arable and semi-improved grasslands.

The famous South West Coast Path loops through the reserve, offering plenty of chances to greet fellow walkers. Plus, there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs in nearby Shaldon, Maidencombe, Stokenteignhead and Combeinteignhead for a refreshing post-walk drink.
