About this location
The Devon region
South Devon is an ideal year round destination that benefits from the best climate in the South West. A wonderful destination with glorious countryside, interesting towns and villages and golden beaches.
The ancient market town of Kingsbridge lies betwixt Plymouth, to the west, Torbay to the east and Dartmoor to the north and is the historic and natural centre of the South Hams. Kingsbridge can truly claim to be the “hub of the wheel” from which to explore this beautiful area. Kingsbridge is still a vibrant working town, not just a holiday centre, and has a varied selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs which are open all year.
Just over 2 miles away is the shingle stretch of Slapton Sands a great beach for families or walkers to enjoy. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards, during the summer and there is a beachside cafe serving drinks at one end. Many visitors come to enjoy the nature reserve. Throughout the year the plants and animals living in the freshwater lake, Slapton Ley, vary according to the seasons, giving you the chance to see something different every time you come. The whole stretch of this particular piece of coastline has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a great destination at any time of the year.
The maritime town of Dartmouth is on the other side of East Allington. Enjoy the variety of independent shops that line the narrow cobbled streets. The town has a super selection of restaurants and cafes. Take a trip along the River on one of the River cruises, or catch a ride to Paignton on the steam train that leaves from across the River Dart at Kingswear.
Another lovely beach for a day out with the family is the Blue Flag beach of Blackpool Sands. This lovely sheltered cove is always popular and with parking, facilities and a great beach cafe its wise to come early in the summer months.
