The England region

South Devon is listed as an area of outstanding natural beauty and you will see why when you visit the coastal resorts on offer. From the beautiful countryside of Dartmoor to the underestimated and unexploited seaside towns of the south Devon coast, there is something to offer all ages and all tastes.

The south west coastal paths offer some great walking and fantastic scenery, there is plentiful opportunity to sail, dive or fish and as for beaches, Dawlish warren has one of the top 5 in the country carrying the prestigious blue flag award, which is great for families.

Whatever your age and whatever the weather south devon is the perfect place for a fantastic holiday.
The area is well served by the A38 & M5 providing easy access to busier tourist resorts of Exeter, Paignton, Torquay & Brixham.


Shaldon is a beautiful unspoilt seaside town nestled on the banks of the River Teign, offering everything you would expect from a British summer holiday. The village boasts 4 pubs all offering something different and all serving good British food.

Within walking distance you can find the Shaldon wildlife centre, dedicated to conversation and fascinating to all enquiring minds, the botanical gardens and the smugglers cove.
From June to September Shaldon hosts the "1785" Day. Every Wednesday a craft fair and farmers market takes place on the village green between 10am & 4pm. This is followed by entertainment for the children including maypole dancing and Punch & Judy.
The first Saturday of August Shaldon Water carnival takes place, one not to be missed, followed by a party and bar-be-que on the village green.
Teignmouth which sits opposite Shaldon and can be reached by the foot ferry has all the qualities of a traditional holiday resort. The victorian pier, the lido, the fantastic children's play area for all ages and of course the beautiful beach.
