The West Country region
Devon boasts five areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO Geopark, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and two National Parks. The most famous of the National Parks is Dartmoor which inspired Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles, and has been used as the backdrop for Hollywood blockbusters. With 368 square miles to explore, you can walk to your hearts content and visit some of the attractions to be found on the moors such as Haytor and the fascinating Dartmoor Prison Museum. After a long walk be sure to check out the hospitality of the moorland pubs and restaurants.
North Devon is home to a number of stunning stately homes set in glorious grounds, and some of the county's best surfing beaches. It too has its own distinct character, and the dramatic beauty of Exmoor is the perfect location to go hiking or mountain biking. North Devon's dramatic coastline offers stunning craggy landscape and the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the local wildlife.
