Around & About
Generations have been enchanted by the charm and romance of Brixham, a colourful and bustling fishing port at the southern end of the English Riviera. The hilly town is built around the central harbour area, which remains the lifeblood of this historic town. Vibrant fishermen's cottages gaze out across the port and the fishing trawlers below.
Life here centres around the harbour. Wander around the many shops, watch the fishermen unload their daily catch or head down to Artist's Corner. Within walking distance from the town centre you will find some of the English Riviera's most spectacular scenery.
This historic quayside town, situated on the banks of the River Dart, is filled with narrow winding streets, hidden steps, boutiques and stylish galleries. Home to the magnificent Royal Naval College, the town is a foodie heaven with Mitch Tonks running two of his own revered operations. Take a short trip up river to Totnes or a day trip out to sea along the coast to Brixham. Dartmouth Castle, the first purpose-built artillery tower in the country, is well worth a visit.
Dartmoor National Park
Dartmoor is an area of outstanding natural beauty, characterised by bleak and beautiful moorland, rugged windswept tors and huge expanses of wilderness. You can be on the edge of the moor in just 30 minutes. Hidden amongst the beautiful scenery are coutless old villages and towns like Widecombe, Ashburton and Chagford well worth exploring. Cream teas and real ale are specialities in all.
A rugged and wild national park, steeped in legend and home to thousands of ancient monuments, burial chambers, stone circles and archaeological sites. Huge granite tors dominate the extraordinary landscape, with heather and gorse blanketing the high ground and green and marshy vegetation below. Dartmoor is excellent for walking, while other ways to enjoy the park include cycling, climbing, watersports, fishing and horse riding. There are countless delightful towns and villages to explore including Princetown (the striking home of Dartmoor Prison), Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Ponsworthy, Chagford, Sticklepath and Drewsteignton.
Exeter – A Capital City
Dating back to 1050 and built entirely of local stone, Exeter Cathedral stands proudly at the centre of Devon's capital city. Built in a similar style to Salisbury Cathedral, it boasts an eventful past. Restored by Charles II but damaged in the English Civil War, it was then heavily bombed during the Blitz. Surrounded on all sides by well maintained lawns, the stunning architecture, both inside and outside really shouldn't be missed. Summer days can be spent leisurely relaxing on the grass with a picnic whilst the newly enhanced Princesshay shopping precinct (and Exeter's myriad of other shops) is less than a couple of minutes walk away. Big name stores, stylish restaurants and many smaller boutiques make Exeter an excellent choice for shoppers.
Part of the South West Coast Path, Babbacombe is a place of hidden coves and secret hideaways. Surprisingly rural and rugged, cliffs of rich red Devon sandstone tower above golden beaches and scattered stones. Adrenaline or total relaxation. Crystal clear waters bathe in the warmth of the gulf stream. The walking is superb. Pebble skimming, beachcombing and bracing dips. Rib rides, scuba diving and fishing. This is a place ripe for discovery.
Further up the hill are the small villages of Babbacombe and St Marychurch. Enjoy the world famous fish and chips sat on the Downs looking out to sea. Nostalgic and with a sense of romance. Outside the quaint shops, cafes and bakeries, small tables and chairs line the pavements. A continental feel with a real English twist - enjoy a pot of tea for two and some fresh baked scones. An altogether quieter alternative to the bustle of Torquay. Tennis courts in the park, the old famous Babbacombe Theatre and a very rare cliff railway. The perfect backdrop for ice creams, laughter and fond memories.
