Beautiful Devon in the heart of the English countryside is ideal for a short break, with umpteen attractions and activities for all ages. From fishing villages and sandy beaches to farmland and modern cityscapes, all interests are catered for in England’s third largest county.
A rural and isolated stretch of coastline, North Devon is famous for its beaches, which claim to be some of the best in the UK. Exmoor with its scattered clumps of thick woodland and rugged cliffs, is a popular attraction for those wishing to explore and see wild ponies and deer; ideal for nature lovers.
South Devon is proudly home to warm summers and mild winters, making it the ideal destination for anyone who hates the cold. The beaches which line its coasts are fantastic and are among the safest and cleanest in Britain. The towns are brimming with historical tales and legends, from Totnes, the second oldest village found in England, to Kingsbridge, which hosts a market established in 1219.
For those more interested in a booming nightlife, Devon has two cities that simply buzz; Exeter and Plymouth. Both are fantastic for nightlife and eating out. Exeter has an almost continental feel to its dining, with local food and regional ales sending mouths watering throughout the city. Plymouth may have a rich historical background, but it is also the shopping heart of Devonshire and Plymouth Pavilions is a major concert venue.
