Devon as a Destination

Situated in South West England, Devon is a county worth exploring for its beautiful coastline, idyllic beaches and picturesque villages and towns. Blessed with a warmer climate than other parts of the UK, many visitors head here in the summer months to enjoy some sunshine on the beach. Devon`s many villages and towns are full of cultural and historical exhibitions and sights to enjoy. 

Exeter provides the perfect city break, whilst those seeking the outdoors can head straight to Dartmoor national park. 

Devon - What to see and do

Despite its next door neighbour Cornwall often gaining most of the attention, Devon remains a fantastic option for any visit to England. With incredible landscapes, wild beaches, delicious tea rooms there is very little not to like about this English county. 

Dartmoor National Park is a beautiful area of wilderness where you can experience complete tranquillity. Keep your eyes open for the famous Dartmoor ponies which roam the moors.

Busy cities or tiny villages - Devon has it all. A trip to Exeter can fulfil your urban needs, especially with its wide range of shops, stylish eating options and with a beautiful Gothic Cathedral. 

Devon - Gastronomy
