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.

Devon offers a wealth of holiday opportunities so if you’re ready for a break take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Devon.
