Devon Holiday Guide

Stretching from the Bristol Channel in the north to the English Channel in the south, a holiday in Devon can offer everything from rugged moorland to sandy beaches, quiet country pubs to bustling cosmopolitan towns.

Both the coastlines of Devon have high cliffs and beautiful sandy shores filled with bays hiding seaside resorts, fishing towns, and small ports. The aptly named English Riviera is a popular, traditional holiday destination, as are the enthralling cliffs of the Jurassic Coast. North Devon's UNESCO Biosphere Reserve makes for a fascinating visit as does the heritage and history of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape

Further inland you'll find rolling hills and rugged moorland, often stretching on undisturbed for miles. Renowned for its large open spaces, Dartmoor is covered with routes and trails, filled with history, myth and tales. More open country lies to the north in the form of the Culm Measures and Exmoor, both beautiful and worth exploring in their own right. Further south you will find valleys and rivers including the Exe, the Culm, the Teign, the Dart, and the Otter.

Devon's warm climate, beautiful coastline and picturesque landscape make it an ideal destination for a holiday whether you decide to visit its national parks, beautiful coasts or exciting towns and villages.
