The West Country region
Few areas of the UK, or even Europe, have a lure greater than beautiful South Devon. Dramatic Dartmoor gives way to rolling hills, wooded valleys and stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer. While away your days in market towns and quaint villages that retain their tradition whilst now offering fine dining and excellent shopping, or leave the townships behind and head to any one of the outstanding sandy beaches that dot the South Devon coast. It's impossible not to fall in love with lazy, relaxed South Devon and it's otherworldly pace of life.
Start Bay, an outstandingly beautiful part of this coastline, extends from the Mew Stone at the entrance to the river Dart and encompasses the famous Blackpool Sands beach, the glorious sweep of Slapton Sands and culminates in the craggy cliffs that curve round to Start Point Lighthouse.
The coastal road villages of Stoke Fleming and Strete are within a mile of Blackpool Sands. This lovely cove, at the northern end of Start Bay, is flanked by steep wooded cliffs and its two thirds of a mile long beach of sand and shingle has facilities that include windsurfing, canoeing and sailing. This is one of the very best beaches in Devon and is extremely popular with families. There is a café/restaurant, toilets, disabled visitors' facilities including access to the beach and a slipway.
Slapton Sands extend for over three miles; at the northern end is Strete Gate, a secluded picnic spot and vantage point. The coast road is unique, flanked by both the beach and a freshwater lake with an abundance of rare flora and fauna; much of the countryside is now a National Nature Reserve. Torcross is at the southern end of Slapton Sands and from here it is a great walk south along the coast to Beesands with its row of fishermen's cottages and a pub on the beach, and then on to Hallsands.
