The West Country region
With one of Britain's most stirring coastlines and a landscape that has remained largely unspoiled for centuries, Devon's eastern corner is a rural retreat that combines surprising contrasts and hidden delights.
Although the region is dominated by the historic cathedral city of Exeter, capital of the southwest, it incorporates secluded villages, sweeping river valleys, tree-lined hilltops and a not-to-be-missed seaside experience.
Its entire Channel coastline, from Orcombe Point, near Exmouth, to the county's border with Dorset, is part of the 95-mile 'Jurassic Coast', one of the UK's World Heritage sites. Beautiful and awe-inspiring, its red sandstone cliffs have yielded many fossils and dinosaur remains.
Ladram and Sidmouth have important sites dating to the Triassic period while the area around Lyme Regis, on the Dorset border, was where the pioneer palaeontologist Mary Anning found the first remains of the giant flying reptile Ichthyosaurus. The great cliffs are not just the haunts of fossils. Hereabouts the climate is so mild that palm trees flourish - as do holiday activities.
The resort of Sidmouth, for example, has almost 500 listed buildings as well as a fine, mile-long main beach and a second beach known as Jacob's Ladder.
Old fishing villages such as Beer lie in the sheltered coves that proved perfect hideaways for bands of old-fashioned smugglers; Beer Head soars to over 400 feet and has the most westerly chalk cliffs on the Channel coast.
The former Roman port of Exmouth was one of the first seaside resorts to be made popular in the late 18th century, playing host to luminaries like Lord Nelson and the Romantic poet Lord Byron.
Most of inland east Devon is so naturally beautiful it is divided into two areas of outstanding natural beauty, including the Blackdown Hills in the northeast.
The Blackdown Hills form a tranquil, beautiful, and relatively isolated landscape on the Devon and Somerset border. Steep ridges, high plateau, valleys and springs create a charming mosaic of countryside dotted with farms, villages and ancient features.
This special place is home to wildlife and people, with valuable habitats existing alongside living, working communities. Unique geology creates an exceptional environment where rare plant, insect and invertebrate species can flourish.
The Blackdown Hills have been protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) since 1991.
