Devon

Devon''s status as ''The English Riviera'' is well earned and is testimony to the popularity of this holiday destination, which attracts thousands of visitors every year who come to enjoy its special charms.

The county is blessed with two coastlines which are dotted with picturesque fishing ports and mile after mile of clean sandy beaches. The interior consists of a striking contrast of dramatic moorland that includes the Dartmoor National Park and a patchwork of green leafy lanes that criss-cross the region.

Dartmoor actually has two national parks as well as five areas of outstanding natural beauty, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Geopark and Biosphere Reserve. It’s also famous as the location for Conan Doyle’s ‘Hound of the Baskervilles’. It has 368 square miles of windswept, dramatic and uncrowded moors to enjoy!

The English Riviera; Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, are a magnet for those looking for a seaside holiday with lots of attractions and activities for all ages. It also has a rich maritime history, plenty of sporting events and water sports activities.

South Devon is characterised by gentle rolling hills and a lovely coastline, offering easy walks, country pubs and great restaurants, while the northern coast has superb surfing beaches. Exmoor in north Devon is perfect for moorland walks, mountain biking and has wonderful natural beauty.

The many facets of Devon provide visitors with a wide choice of holiday options and lots of top quality visitor attractions and days out, such as the Dartmouth Steam Railway and The National Marine Aquarium; too many to mention here.

Of note is Woolacombe Beach, one of the jewels in Devon’s crown with three miles of golden sand of Blue Flag status and the Tarka Trail; its 30 miles forms a figure-of-eight and follows the path the brave otter takes in Henry Williamson’s beloved novel.

If you fancy walking on the wild side why not take a trip to one of Devon’s many animal attractions? The zoo at Paignton offers an array of exotic creatures and makes for a wonderful day out, while the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm is also very popular with families.

    Plumtree Cottage is in a peaceful spot on the edge of Abbotskerswell with rolling fields and woodland beyond. It is a large, south-facing, detached, family home, which has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The property is spacious and is ideal for family or friends to get together. It is set in 2 acres of enclosed garden with terraces and well-positioned seating to enjoy the sun all day. This is the perfect location for beach holidays, walking, cycling, bird watching and surfing.

    Abbotskerswell village has a good food pub, shop, café and church, mid-way between the edge of Dartmoor at Ashburton with local shops, cafés and restaurants, and the seaside resort of Torquay, which has a theatre, good shopping and harbour. There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves, beaches and walks to explore, with opportunities for surfing, swimming, diving, sailing, angling and to study the natural wildlife at leisure. Stunning views are to be seen just about everywhere across the bay, out over the English Channel, along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill, or inland towards the tors of Dartmoor.

    This is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth, Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth. Paignton with its zoo, steam railway and sandy beaches are worth a visit. Brixham makes a great day out with its fishing port or catch the boat from Torquay. Explore Totnes, an attractive old town on the River Dart, with river cruises to Dartmouth, where you can visit castles, go shopping or just take in the sights. For golf enthusiasts, a golf course can be found 1 mile away. Newton Abbot, an old market town, is 2 miles away. Discover National Trust castles at Compton, 3 miles and Berry Pomeroy. There are many other NT places to visit, including Greenway, Agatha Christie’s summer home. Explore Dartmoor, with its rocky tors, wild ponies, exquisite walks, horse riding, fishing, cycling, falconry and golf at Bovey Castle, an award-winning course. Don’t forget to stop for a cream tea in one of the many tea shops on Dartmoor. Within a few miles are the two picturesque villages of Chagford and Mortenhampstead, with historic inns, excellent pubs, tea rooms, curiosity shops, tennis courts and the Miniature Pony Centre. There is so much to do in this part of Devon, one visit will not be enough! Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.
