The West Country / Devon region
Devon has long been a favourite destination among all walk of life and for good reason. There is everything here, follow winding country lanes to pretty thatched villages and market towns. Saunter round the historical city of Exeter and visit its beautiful cathedral. The south west coastal path is one of the most beautiful stretches or coast in the world and a lot of it is in Devon.
Exmoor has its own powerful atmosphere, with a history going back millions of years. Its combination of rugged coastline with dramatic cliffs, ancient woodland and expanses of open moorland roamed by wild ponies and deer proves an enduring attraction. It is home to many rare and important species of plants, birds and animals, a treat for all nature lovers.
If your taste is for the sea, North Devon has some of the finest sandy beaches in the British Isles. Woolacombe, a blue-flag beach, was recently voted one of the world's top ten. Just around the headland, Croyde, a Seaside Award beach, is famous for surfing, while Saunton's sands stretch as far as the eye can see.
The pretty harbours at Clovelly, Ilfracombe and Lynmouth make a delightful contrast to the spectacular coastline, notably the Hartland peninsula where the coastal path follows dramatic cliffs and tiny coves.
Take a trip on the Tarka line, visit the Exmoor zoo, a dinosaur park or gnome reserve, walk round beautiful gardens or enjoy the peace of nature reserves -- there is something here for every interest.
North Devon's rich diversity of landscape and attractions make it a guaranteed favourite with visitors - families, couples or singles - for a holiday or short break at all times of year.
