An unmatched coast
Devon is blessed with two coastlines, offering two totally unique experiences to suit all preferences. Whether you wish to take to the waves by joining a boat trip or surfing lesson or if you wish to stick to dry land and explore the South West Coastal Path, Devon truly is the county for adventure lovers. With crystal clear waters, large sandy beaches and secluded coves, the county has over 50 beaches just waiting to be explored, including the award winning Woolacombe beach and picturesque Beer beach.
Hike the South West Coastal Path
As the longest National Trail in the UK, the South West Coastal Path offers the ultimate challenge for even an experienced hiker. This 630-mile adventure around the coastline of the South West is pretty extraordinary.
But don’t be put off, the coastal path is split into manageable sections for you to pick and choose where your hike begins and ends! North Devon is home to 90 miles of the coastal path, overlooking the Bristol channel, offering lofty coastal views. South Devon is home to 104 miles offering exhilarating and varied stretches of history, seascape and lazy seaside towns.
Devon is home to no less than 5 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 209 square miles, designed to conserve and enhance these areas of extraordinary beauty. With rugged coastline, sandy beaches, vast estuaries, historic villages and so much more to explore! One of the best things to do in Devon is to grab a pair of walking boots and breath in the rolling hills and spectacular views.
Start your adventure on two wheels
Devon truly is an extraordinary place to visit with miles of breath taking scenery to enjoy. But if walking really isn’t your thing, don’t let that stop you! There are bike rental companies across the county close to popular cycle trails including Exe Estuary Trail, Tarka Trail and Drakes Trail.
Take on the Moor
Dartmoor National Park is one of the last great wildernesses in the UK. The National Park really does have something for everyone. Castles, local myth and legend to uncover, guided walks, family attractions and a whole host of opportunity to explore the tors. Cycle up challenging hills and stay active in the great outdoors. Dartmoor really is a place that you can completely tailor your visit to suit exactly what you and your family want to see and do!
Enjoy a cream tea the Devonshire way
Our travel guide to Devon wouldn’t be complete without a mention of the famous cream tea! Here in Devon, the locals take great pride in their cream teas – as they should, these little treats are delicious! One of the most talked about dilemmas in the county is the simple construction of these beautifully baked goods. Much to the upset of their Cornish neighbours, a true Devon cream tea is made with cream first! There are a huge number of quaint little cafes and grand manor houses offering cream teas across Devon, there is bound to be a cream tea near you on your stay. What will you choose, cream or jam first?
