About this location
The Devon region
Blessed with such wonderful scenery and gentle climate, it's no surprise that South Devon has been attracting visitors for over 250 years. The contrast of river estuaries, rolling hills and lovely old towns combined with long warm summers and mild winters make South Devon the perfect year-round holiday destination.
South Devon has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country - from tiny sheltered coves to great sweeps of golden sands like Dawlish Warren, and long stretches of pebbles and shingle. Many of the beaches have passed tough tests to prove that they are also some of the safest and cleanest.
Stay at one of the many characterful old towns tucked in along the coast - Totnes, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge or Salcombe - and enjoy exploring their steep streets and rich history. Totnes, the second oldest borough in England, is full of its colourful past, with an ancient Guildhall, Norman castle and town gates. Indeed, tradition runs strong in this part of the world, and Kingsbridge's market dates back to 1219.
The coast is deeply indented by river estuaries, providing safe moorings for boats and refuge too for migrating birds. The Exe estuary in particular is an important stopping off site and the great sand spit of Dawlish Warren and the freshwater Slapton Ley are havens for wildlife. Don't miss the Teign and the Avon estuaries - their mussels and oysters are legendary, while the Dart estuary, often described as "the most beautiful in all England", has been a magnet to sailors for centuries.
Moving north, the land climbs steadily up to Dartmoor - a vast, ancient expanse dotted with granite tors, stone huts and cromlechs. A place to fire the imagination, feel a sense of freedom and enjoy wild, wide, open spaces.
10 min from Totnes you find the English Riviera. Set along 22 miles of unspoilt coastline, the English Riviera has the glamour and style of the Mediterranean high life. Covering the three towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, its stunning scenery and coastline with international geopark status, mild climate, relaxing friendly atmosphere and packed events diary offer irresistible attractions.
In half an hour you may reach the two major cities: Exeter and Plymouth.
Exeter and it's surrounding areas has much to attract the visitor - a rich and varied landscape, the fascinating rocks and sandy beaches of the Jurassic Coast, plus the vibrant regional capital of Devon, Exeter. From moor to sea, there are a host of things to discover and do, all enriched by Devon's distinctive culture and history.
Exeter is a thriving city, with a rich history spanning more than 2,000 years from Roman times. Today, it combines a wealth of visitor attractions and architectural splendour with a bountiful array of shops, restaurants, bars and live music venues.
A year-round calendar of events offers something for everyone, from the Exeter Summer Festival to open-air theatre and local markets. Enjoy local Devon food and drink in the weekly Farmers Market or the monthly Slow Food Market, held on the historic Quayside.
Start your voyage of discovery by visiting spectacular Plymouth Hoe where you can climb Smeaton's Tower Lighthouse to enjoy the best view in Plymouth.
In the Elizabethan Barbican, you will find the Mayflower Steps, where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for America, and Plymouth Gin Distillery, producers of Plymouth Gin since 1793. Nearby is the National Marine Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the UK with the deepest tank in Europe. Get a taste of Plymouth's seafaring history with a cruise into Plymouth Sound and up the River Tamar, past the Devonport Royal Dockyards, with its frigates and nuclear submarines; you can admire too Isambard Kingdom Brunel's Saltash Bridge.
The city is also the region's shopping capital.

"Lovely house with plenty of outside space for wining and dining"
Six of us stayed there - 4 adults and 2 children aged 6 and 10. The property felt very private. It was great to have breakfast on the decking and have the lounge bi-fold doors open. There is also another deck beside the brook at the bottom of the garden. The snug is separate to the main house so if you have children of a younger age and want them near to you at night, bear this in mind. The bed in the snug is up a small ladder, so may not be suitable for older members of the party. We had 2 grandparents and 2 children inside the house, and two adults in the snug. It was nice to stay in the snug as private from the rest of the party, but awkward if you needed for the loo!
Local amenities good. Spa shop and chinese at the bottom of the road and a couple of childrens playgrounds nearby. Totnes is a great town to visit. About 20 mins steady walk to town with children.
