The West Country region
Despite being England’s 3rd largest county, it is easy to reach all areas of Devon and enjoy its landscapes, traditions and culture. There are areas of Devon where sea, moor, farmland and town can be seen from the same spot. Devon is scattered with picturesque villages and towns, two buzzing cities and glorious beaches and landscapes. With two National Parks, two coastlines, 33,000 miles of hedgerow and many well-maintained gardens and fields, there is always a view to catch the eye, a meal to enjoy or a place to roll up your trousers and have a paddle.
You don’t have to travel to the other side of the world for the holiday of a lifetime. South Devon is home to great beaches, exciting attractions and so much more.
The English Riveria
At its heart is the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, with no less than 22 beaches and the winner of the 2011 Keep Britain Tidy award for the cleanest beaches.
The English Riviera is the ideal base for exploring South Devon. Plymouth is home to Britain’s deepest aquarium and some great shopping, while Dartmoor National Park offers 368 square miles of beautiful scenery and countless walking trails – both within an hour’s drive. All around the English Riviera there are dozens of quaint villages that help to give South Devon its unique character. The whole area has been designated a UNESCO-supported Global Geopark because of its 400 million year-old rock formations, and visitors can rub shoulders with Britain’s prehistoric past at Kents Cavern.
Torquay, Babbacombe, Paignton and Brixham each have their own unique character. Torquay is a hub for eating out and natutical life, while Babbacombe is a tranquil retreat from the bustle of the town centre. Brixham is a working fishing port, with a fascinating maritime history, and Paignton is home to world-class attractions, including the famous Paignton Zoo, which features over 3000 animals including lions, monkeys and elephants. Dartmouth, Salcombe and Exeter are near by too, as is Topsham, Lympstone and Exmouth.
The English Riviera is made up of 22 miles of stunning coastline and charming coastal towns that each offer their own unique feast of places to visit, scenery to explore and exhilarating attractions.

Enjoy exhilarating water sports (jet skiing and surfing to name a few) and maritime activities, including boat trips, deep sea fishing, kite-surfing and sailing. If you’re looking for lively entertainment and a great variety of events, then you may like to head to the Waterfront or Cockington, as your sure to see exciting festivals, live music events, top-class sailing competitions and of course the famous Agatha Christie themed revelries. For those wanting quite or solitary activities there are hundreds of coastal walks and cycle routes to choose from, leading you to a treasure-trove of remote and breathtaking surroundings.
Spanning across the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, are countless attractions and fascinating sites. Explore the Global Geo Park sites to discover tales of the area’s drowned forests, sabre-tooth tigers and the earliest human remains. Kent’s Caverns are an eye to behold, and people travel from across the world to see them first hand. Ideal for the kids, Paignton Zoo is an absolute must-see with thousands of animals, a range of habitats and acres of activities. Alternatively, use your time to relax and soak up the laid back atmosphere at one of the many picturesque villages or beachside cafes.

The English Riviera and South Devon are a destination of choice for top class and celebrity chefs. Torquay’s Elephant Restaurant is the base for celeb chef and Michelin-star holder Simon Hulstone, while the head chef of the nearby Grand Hotel is Richard Hunt, star of television’s Iron Chef. Not far away you’ll find Mitch Tonks in Dartmouth and Michael Caines in Exeter.
The area is of course famous for its seafood, and fish and shellfish from Brixham end up in top kitchens all over the world. Many of our restaurants serve up the freshest catch of the day, which can be matched with great local wine from neighbouring Sharpham Vineyard.
Wellswood Village offers a lovely selection of small shops, boutiques and cafes, whilst Torquay is home to many high street favourites, as well as locally owned shops. Dartmouth, Salcombe, Brixham and Babbacombe have a good range of high street brands, high end interior furnishings, and smaller boutiques. For those who want to take part in more serious shopping, head up the road to Exeter, as this historic City has it all, from the UK’s largest Debenhams, to Molton Brown and Jack Wills.
For local food – The Deli in Wellswood Village is a must if you want quality produce, as is the grocers. The farm shops at Occombe and Churston provide the best in delicious seasonal local produce, with Occombe stocking meat from its own herd of Devon Ruby Red cattle and veg from its organic garden.
