Holidays in Devon

A county of choice and variety with Exmoor National Park to the north and extending into West Somerset, and Dartmoor to the south.  Walking, cycling, ponies, trails and traces of bygone histories are rife in a county that positively oodles charm (and cream teas).  
 
The Tavistock Goose Fair, Devon County Show, Honiton Hill Rally and Widecombe Fair all conjure up a flavour for a county that’s really hard to beat.
 
The South Devon coast conjures up images of idyllic summer holidays at popular destinations from Sidmouth, Exmouth and Torquay heading west to the delights of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe. There is good reason why it is called the Devon Riviera. 
 
In north Devon explore the wide expanses of sand at Croyde and Mortoe beaches where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Devon coast in dramatic style. A paradise for surfers and body boarders alike. 
 
A top the rugged cliffs 400 feet up is picturesque Clovelly with traditional cottages and steep cobbled streets heading down to its quaint fishing quay. A gem to see for any visitor.
