The Devon region
The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved � sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.
Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton�s long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth�s beach and Salcombe�s location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don�t need to be brash; Bigbury�s huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.
Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area�s heart; Plymouth � the West Country�s biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) � is on the area�s edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.
East Prawle: village (shop, pub, good food caf�) a mile from the sea in the middle of an unspoilt peninsula (farmland, cliffs, coves, beaches). Superb scenery, cliff-birdwatching and walks - coast path to little sandy cove beaches (nearest 1 mile). East Portlemouth (small village, ferry to Salcombe), easy 3� mile walk. Kingsbridge by road, 9 miles.
