The surnames Cole and Edwards are ordinarily Welsh, so she may be English in name, but probably less than half in real ethnic makeup. Devon is near Cornwall after all. Contrast with East Anglia, Essex and Kent on the east coast where they would be more Germanic English.

Don’t know about the Cole line, but the Edwards line is English at least as far back as John Edwards, born, c. 1728, in Devon, England.

She could have Irish ancestry, but her dad’s side doesn’t look very Irish.
