Visit Devon and you’ll want to stay forever …
This is a stunning county of great contrasts, with two beautiful coastlines, two National Parks and five official Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Beaches, cities & countryside
For beaches, Devon can’t be beaten. Sandy family-friendly beaches, tiny pebbled coves, wild and windswept bays with stunning views – we have them all, both north and south. And glorious green countryside? We’ve got it in abundance, plus rolling hills, bountiful farmland – and craggy moorland.
Yet Devon also boasts its historic cities of Exeter and Plymouth, with great shopping and bustling nightlife, as well as friendly towns and pretty villages like Sidmouth, lined with the pastel-coloured cottages of paintings. Plus, the food scene here is second to none, with cosy foodie pubs, great restaurants, traditional tearooms and everything in-between serving fantastic Devon produce.
Families, thrillseekers & romantic souls
Whatever makes a perfect holiday for you, you’re sure to find it in Devon. Such natural beauty attracts walkers, artists, camping enthusiasts and those who just like to sit and gaze. Families love our amusements – from large adventure parks and farm attractions to traditional seaside fun. Thrillseekers, sports fans and lovers of the outdoors come to Devon to surf, kayak, walk, cycle, paddleboard, sail, fish, ride … and have a great time doing so. Romantic souls enjoy our secluded beaches, country walks and great restaurants – and then, there’s the romantic (and the not-so-romantic) tales of the past, evident in Devon’s historic monuments, museums and geology.
