The Devon region

Few areas of the UK, or even Europe, have a lure greater than the beautiful South West. From dramatic Dartmoor to the stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer. While away your days in market towns and quaint villages that retain their tradition whilst now offering fine dining and excellent shopping, or leave the townships behind and head to any one of the outstanding sandy beaches that dot the coast. It's impossible not to fall in love with lazy, relaxed South West, its scenery, attractions, and it's otherworldly pace of life.
