The beat areas of Northam, Appledore, Westward Ho! and Hartland encompass the rural villages around Bideford.

The North Torridge Coastal area. 

Westward Ho! was named after a book by Charles Kingsley and is famous for its 2 miles of sandy beach where surfers enjoy the breaks and Pebble Ridge which is rebuilt each year to protect the Burrows from the sea.

The village of Appledore lies just along the coast from Westward Ho! and is also popular with tourists who visit each year to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and many festivals that are run, including annual book & music festivals.

Northam encompasses Appledore and Westward Ho! to Form the Northam Town Council, who's Chambers are located in Windmill lane Northam.

The Hartland Rural Beat Area covered by PCSO's, John McGovern and Liz Rendle is very large. It begins with the commercial side of Westward Ho! extending west to the Cornish border at Welcombe Cross encompassing Abbotsham, Horns Cross, Bucks Cross, Clovelly, Hartland and Welcombe before returning east through Meddon to Powlers Piece and then on to Buckland Brewer taking in Woolsery, Parkham, Littleham and Landcross. As the name implies it is a largely rural area with its own unique demands.
