We’re all going on a sunny Devon holiday…

Sun, sea and sandy beaches! How amazing does that sound? This could be the reality of your next holiday and what better place to enjoy all of that than at one of the top destinations of the summer; Devon!

What is so special about Devon?

Devon is located in the Southwest of England and is renowned for its sandy beaches, historical coastlines and scenic national parks. Whether you are looking for adventure, lifetime experiences or even just some well deserved R&R, Devon is the place for you and all the family.

Visit the bustling towns of Plymouth and Exeter where you can enjoy the culture and nightlife scenes, or if you fancy something a bit more rural and quaint, maybe Dartmoor’s or Exmoor’s rough beauty is more up your street.

Whether you go, North Devon or South Devon, this destination has been chosen by you as one of the top UK getaways!

Where to go and what to do?

In a survey conducted by National Express Transport Solutions, 54% of travel enthusiasts said that they wanted to have a city break where they could soak up the local culture, whereas 36% of respondents said they wanted a holiday to recuperate and relax. Now, what if I told you that Devon has the best of both worlds? You can pack not only your camera and walking shoes for this diverse location but also your beachwear. Whatever your interest and budget, there is so much to do in this popular destination.

Exeter is the best place to explore and take in the culture. This small town is in the heart of Devon and full of interesting, historical places to visit. Exeter is packed full of live music, along with a selection of restaurants, cafes and bustling market towns perfect for a shopping trip.
A popular must-see for all of you culture and sightseeing lovers is, of course, Exeter Cathedral(let’s face it – who doesn’t go to a cathedral when on va-cay!) Being over a thousand years old, this cathedral is one of the oldest in England.

This piece of architectural beauty is not just amazing for history enthusiasts but also for individuals interested in art and design. The engineering and craftsmanship that went into producing this building is remarkable and is shown with gothic vaulting, stained glass windows and carved wall scenes. Wow! This building is also the host of many activities throughout the year such as guided tours, roof tours, winter markets, concerts and services – it’s where it all happens!

Family fun doesn’t just mean for the children, adults can have a day of fun at World of Country, where you can get back in touch with nature and up close and personal with a range of animals and farm life. The farm also has a museum showing farm machinery, vintage & classic vehicles, steam engines & tractors. You’d definitely have fun on the farm at this particular attraction!

If you fancy exploring something a bit more rural and adventurous then don’t worry, there is much more to go and see. Devon is well known for its coastal locations especially the famous Jurassic Coast, where fossils from many, many years back have been discovered. Queue the Jurassic Park theme tune!

The Jurassic Coast starts in Exmouth and travels 96 miles to Swanage, Dorset. It is England’s only natural World Heritage site and is protecting 185 millions years of history. You never know you could be the next to discover some new historic artefacts.

Where to wine and dine?

Restaurants in Devon are known to be high class, award-winning establishments that can guarantee you one of the best meals you’ll have tucked into!

Visit Amelia’s Pantry to enjoy some divine cuisine as well as enjoying some of Devon’s most beautiful views. This is a perfect place for any type of party, whether this is a family meal or a table for two.

Food varies from a fresh plate of fish & chips or maybe a British beef burger to demolish! This famed restaurant also offers a range of cakes and coffees for afters, and then a range of entertainment for everyone.

What is the most famous thing you need to go and experience when you visit Devon?… a traditional Devon cream tea of course. There are many cafes and tearooms perfect for enjoying some tea with a jam and cream-filled scone, yum!

Fishcombe Cove Café is the cafe/tearoom of the year 2020 and offers the best of the best in cream teas, as voted by Visit Devon. Plus, it’s right on the beachfront so it’s a chance to unwind and take in the fresh sea air.

When you think of having a drink in Devon, do you picture a pub setting with a warm fire, drinking a homemade cider? That’s exactly what it is like. Devon has so many local pubs and inns that you can enjoy a drink and even some food.

Depending on what kind of mood and setting you are looking for, Devon has a spot for you, there are just so many to choose from, however, Visit Devon has made its recommendations perfect for you.
