Stunning coastline, untamed moorland, chocolate-box villages and a nationally acclaimed food scene, a visit to Devon is a heady mix of the great outdoors and fantastic food.
Unlike other counties in England, Devon has two completely separate coastlines. The surf dashed north Devon coast with its towering cliffs and miles of golden sands offers spectacular coastal walks, whilst the softer shores of the English Riviera have earned themselves a spot on UNESCO’s Global Geopark list.
Aware from the coast lies rolling green countryside, home to numerous castles and stately homes. From the medieval Berry Pomeroy to the exquisite Powderham Castle, take a tour to discover what life would have been like both upstairs and downstairs. History lovers will also delight in exploring the granite moorland landscapes of Dartmoor and Exmoor, each strewn with an array of Bronze Age and Neolithic settlements.
And foodie lovers needn’t worry, Devon has an incredible gastro scene, playing host to celebrity chefs, quality local producers and superb independent local eateries. Taste your way long the Seafood Coast, a gorgeous stretch that is a feast for the eyes and the stomach; tour vineyards and try your hand at gin making or simply sit back, relax and dine on some of the nation’s finest seafood.
