The South West with its miles of rugged coastline and hundreds of beaches has always attracted the crowds who are looking either for a family get away or a quiet break away from it all. The region offers a unique and diverse landscape to discover and explore. From the wild Dartmoor & Exmoor to the well known South West Coast Path and the many trails, footpaths, trails and bridleways makes this part of the country a must for visitors from home and abroad who return again and again.


East Devon is a beautiful part of the county and recognised as being of outstanding natural beauty, the Jurassic Coastline has been recognised as the countries only World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is an attraction in its own right. The small Victorian seaside town of Seaton has a mile long beach which is perfect for bathing. The river Axe is a wildlife haven and has a well organised series of hides to observe the birds feeding on the mudflats and salt marshes between tides. An open top tram runs regularly from Seaton to Colyton stopping at Colyford and offers the visitor a real flavour of the Axe Valley.
