Famed film director Steven Spielberg once described Devon as an "abundance of natural beauty"...and from the moment you arrive, you're sure to agree. Certainly, you're spoilt for choice with beautiful Devon places to visit...and more so with unique places to stay!
Beauty is the order of the Devon day, with two breathtaking coastlines and National Parks (Dartmoor and Exmoor) to explore, not to mention five designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Think endlessly rolling countryside that attracts lovers of the Great Outdoors worldwide.
If you hanker after a beach holiday, sandy Woolacombe Beach is ideal for families and surfing beginners alike, while pebbly Greencliffs is ideal for romantic couples, accessible along the South West Coast Path. Meanwhile, Croyde is perfect for dedicated wave-riders!
Exeter and Plymouth are history-steeped and lively, while pastel-toned Sidmouth is ideal for those seeking a quieter break. Wherever you end up, make sure you order a traditional Devon cream tea at least once.
Devon heritage is abound, from the stately Powderham Castle to the grand Jurassic Coast - oh, and what better excuse for a large G&T than with a trip to the Plymouth Gin Distillery?
Devonians are well-known for their gardening skills, and with so much greenery all around, that's a good thing. RHS Garden Rosemoor, nestled in Torridge Valley, is the perfect place to begin your green exploration.
However you decide to spend your time, sit back, relax and allow yourself to be swept away on a beautiful sea of Devon charm. You're sure to enjoy the journey!
