The Dorset region
Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?
Set on the borders of Devon and Dorset, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is the lovely little village of Uplyme. This beautiful area is a popular filming location and was chosen by the television chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall as the headquarters for River Cottage, located at Park Farm. Just a short drive away is the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis - a historic seaside town that boasts a maze of narrow streets, packed with interesting shops and cafes. The sandy beach, located alongside the town, lends itself to great bathing and water sports whilst the bustling harbour offers regular fishing trips and fossil hunting. The town of Axminster is also close by, as it the Seaton Tramway, making this a wonderful, varied location.
