Devon is an English county of outstanding natural beauty. Its lovely beaches and mild climate make it the ideal destination for traditional seaside holidays. Inland, narrow country lanes meander through the lush green countryside to idyllic villages of thatched cottages. Devons history is inextricably bound up with the sea. In 1588 Francis Drake interrupted his bowls fixture in Plymouth to put to fight off the Spanish Armada. The Barbican Plymouths historic old quay, with its Tudor and Jacobean buildings, has been preserved so that visitors can stand on the very spot where in 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers set out for America aboard the Mayflower. The Victorian fish market and National Marine Aquarium nearby are both worth a visit while you're in the vicinity.
Both Plymouth the bustling port, and Exeter the county seat with its flourishing nightlife, have plenty to offer the visitor but for a seaside holiday, look no further than Torbay the English Riviera which includes Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, where you can go wreck fishing for conger eels. Further south is Sidmouth in all its Regency splendour and to the north lies Ilfracombe, handy for a day trip to Lundy the isle of puffins. Surfies flock to the broad sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde Bay whilst inland, the more adventurous make for the wilds of Dartmoor, 365 square mile of the wildest country in Britain with its granite tors, Bronze Age settlements, wild ponies and sparkling rivers.
On a smaller scale to the north, beautiful Exmoor - Lorna Doone country - offers similar outdoor opportunities for walkers, nature lovers, and pony trekkers. Then when youve had enough exercise, what about a cream tea? Theyre never hard to find around these parts and for a takeaway farmhouse cider is often available for sale at the farm gate.
