However, Exmoor/North Devon sounds interesting as I've never been there and would find it hard to choose between the two.

One of the reasons I like west Cornwall is the option of having both coasts. If its blowing a gale on one side you can usually find a bit of shelter on the other with just as amazing scenery.

The North Devon coastline also has its gems, places like Hartland Quay for its rock formations or Clovelly which is a real old fishing village.
