About this location
The Devon region
East Devon: that is Devon east of the river Exe and Exeter - Devon�s capital with superb cathedral and much else attractive. Here is the most smiling of lush farmland and most dramatically hilly, the easiest to see from a car because the lanes are less narrow, the hedges less high. Domed hills rise abruptly and steeply, baize-green fields to crowns of woods or sentinel beech trees, half-way up farmsteads like a children�s-book idyll. Woodbury Common is a small high moor with heather and Scots pine trees and fine newish golf course.
Exmouth is a resort with lots of sandy beach and boats. The Exe estuary is full of yachts and has one of Devon�s prettiest villages, Lympstone, beside it. A shore of mainly pebbles keeps the area comparatively quiet, though the coast is attractive with white and red cliffs, pleasant, civilised towns like Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton and villages like Beer and Branscombe. Its inland villages tend to be pretty: Broadhembury is special - and the view from Hembury Hill (fort) is sensational. Hardly anyone seems to visit the lovely Blackdown Hills - big beech woods, smart fields with thoroughbred horses - on its northern border. You can have flying lessons at Dunkeswell aerodrome and there is an excellent (flat) cycle track, punctuated by pubs, from Exeter beside the Exe estuary to the sea. The whole east Devon coast is called a �World Heritage Coastline�.
Axminster: bustling little town with 300 BC Celtic origins and famous for its carpets and TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall�s River Cottage canteen/deli and HQ. Lots of other cafes, pubs, shops, leisure centre (indoor swimming pool) and train station. Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis, 6 miles. Nat.Trust Shute Barton and Forde Abbey, 4-9 miles.
