The West Country region

South Devon has a coastline of spectacular rugged cliffs and headlands, interspersed with lower-lying areas, sandy beaches and the five distinctive ria river estuaries of the Dart, Avon, Yealm, Erme and Salcombe.

The coastal scenery also includes reed beds, sand dunes, shingle ridges, mud flats, salt marshes, and the freshwater lake of Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve. This variety provides habitat for a diverse range of wildlife. The South West Coast Path National Trail running along the whole stretch of heritage coast, provides access to spectacular scenery, long views across bays and the English Channel, interesting beaches, and a scattering of coastal villages & historic towns such as Salcombe & Dartmouth.


The heart of the famous resort town of Torquay offers a wide range of restaurants, bars and shops to enjoy, as well as the seaside town's most popular family-friendly visitor attractions, which include Living Coasts Sea Life Centre, Torquay's Dinosaur World and its breathtaking marina and splendid Victoriana pleasure gardens.

Nearby guests can also enjoy the picturesque Cockington Country Park, the popular Paignton Zoo, the many fine Golf Clubs and the geographical wonder that is Kents Cavern. The Torquay coast also offers a wide range of sport activities to enjoy from sailing, surfing, fishing to golf, canoeing and horse riding.

Further afield guests are within easy driving distance of discovering the Dartmoor National Park or to enjoy an afternoon visiting one of the 40+ National Trust attractions that are awaiting you in beautiful Devon!


Dartmoor is known for its plethora of Bronze Age remains; stone circles, stone rows and burial chambers and its clapper bridges, it is also well known for mists and boggy areas, though stories of the latter are often much exaggerated.

Two Bridges - is a central location of Dartmoor National Park and is mostly the meeting point of walkers and bikers. This is a bridge that was of much historical importance for it was the only routine road running across Dartmoor. The bridge had a small settlement around it and was famous for its potato market.

You can also find a small quarry that is proof enough of little industrial activity around it. There is also a famous hotel close to the bridge that dates back to year 1794. This hotel has now grown up to become The Two Bridges hotel. The two bridge area is the focal point of many events and is very rich in terms of antiquities available, there are lots of antiques relating to the Bronze Age period.

The Garden House - is a very romantic place. If you are with your partner then I suggest you must visit the Garden House for sure. The remains of the building around it is from the medieval period. To put it in words of Alan Titchmarsh, "You got to be mad to miss it" and I am sure you will vouch by this statement once you have seen the place yourself.

It is a huge area, approximately ten acres and all of it landscaped into a beautiful garden. Amidst this charming garden you have a tea room where you can sit back and relax. They also sell plants, so it would be a romantic idea to buy a gift for your partner? Your partner will be totally charmed and will fall in love with you all over again.


The nearby opportunities for a beautiful beach day out of bird watching, swimming, surfing, canoeing and picnics and also golf and cycling in the nearby National Park make this holiday home the perfect choice for couples who want to enjoy quality time together in one of the most beautiful and idyllic landscapes in the British Isles.

Shaldon is a charming seaside village with a range of amenities and a pretty timeless appeal.

Shaldon is a pretty, unspoilt village which is situated on the Teign estuary. A ferry runs a frequent service to the larger resort town of Teignmouth, which on the opposite side of the estuary.

Shaldon has a long clean sandy beach, grocery shops, pubs, cafes's and restaurants and also a Zoo! Shaldon Zoo is located in beautiful woodland and you will be able to see a variety animals, including some smaller more endangered species.

It still retains much of it's old world charm, with many thatched cottages and a typical village green. It has a thriving community and several local families are still linked to the fishing industry.


Teignmouth also has that relaxed holiday ambience generated by its people and buildings, such as the Georgian crescents found in the town. Teignmouth is a true historic seafishing and industrial port and also a classical seaside resort. Both industry and fishing are now much reduced, but watching the ships and pleasure boats passing the Ness between Shaldon and Teignmouth is always enjoyable.

Teignmouth boasts a promenade, a Victorian pier, a swimming lido, plenty of shopping, a theatre, very safe main beach, great walks, a railway station and parks.

Add to this the great selection of restaurants, such as the Crab Shack, and local pubs touching the water front, beach huts sitting proud on the "spit" and the ambience is complete. Teignmouth is easy to reach by car, just 15-20 minutes from Exeter by car or by train. You can even arrive by boat provided you can find a mooring.

For fishermen Teignmouth is a true haven, with a large beach front, and an estuary that sees a good number of bass and flatfish caught by locals every year. Float fish off the spit on a full tide with sandeel, spin in the estuary or beach cast into the surf (watch the surfers however when an easterly is blowing).

Additional Activities & Attractions Include:

Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Crazy Golf/Pitch & Putt, Exceptional Views, Gallery, Grocery Shopping Nearby, Museums, National Trust Properties, Playground, Public Transportation, Restaurants & Bars, Rowing Boats, Train Station, Waterfalls, Winery Tours, Wildlife Centre and Zoo.
