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.

The Hartland Rural Beat Area covered by PCSO's, John McGovern and Liz Rendle is very large.
