Now we may be a tiny bit biased, but we love our county, and we can honestly say that every one of its resorts has a unique character that offers something special. From the sandy beaches and fluttering palms of the English Riviera in South Devon to the dramatic, rugged coastline that draws the surfers to the north, there’s a Devon destination to suit every kind of holidaymaker.

Home to five areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, one UNESCO World Heritage Site and two national parks, Devon has scenery that could have been made to grace postcards, history that amazes and the space to just be…well, whoever it is you are when you’re miles from anywhere.

So, where do we start? Well, if it’s walking you’re after you’ll be spoilt for choice. The South West Coast Path winds its way along the county’s cliff tops and beaches, and with the sea as a backdrop it takes those of you who walk it past the kind of vantage points that’ll stop you in your tracks and have you reaching for your camera phone.

Then there’s Dartmoor National Park, an area untouched by time and dotted with ancient landmarks, and the best part is it’s easy to reach. In fact, part of Devon’s charm is that you can be lounging on the beach one hour and making like explorers on Dartmoor the next…and much of the county’s dog friendly. Step across the threshold and onto the flagstones of almost any pub and your dog will be welcomed as warmly as (if not more warmly!) than the two-legged folk will.

The county’s also home to more award-wining family attractions than you can squeeze into one visit, and whether your little ones are into animals, rides or activities you’ll find a day out that suits them as well as the weather.
