An Introduction to Devon

Did you know that you can now rub shoulders with celebs and surfers alike in Devon? Yes, it's fast becoming one of England's hotspots, with an ever-growing number of stylish restaurants, bars, shops etc cropping up in all the nicest places.

The scenery is without question absolutely stunning and whether you're after a Devon cottage for a family holiday by the sea or a romantic break in winter, outdoor activities range from sailing and surfing to golf and cliff-top walks. There are two contrasting coastlines to discover, one more rugged with surf-washed sands, the other gentler and fringed with tranquil coves and long, sandy bays. Inland, the setting changes from lush, rolling hills to the beautifully wild landscapes of Exmoor and Dartmoor.

What else? Year round events like sailing regattas, garden festivals and classic operas. Historic cities, charming towns, picture-postcard fishing villages and elegant resorts. Castles, stately homes, gardens, antiques - and a whole stack of attractions for children including Pennywell Farm, Quad World and The Donkey Sanctuary.

Fancy a tipple? Check out the local vineyards. Feeling indulgent? Opt for afternoon tea in a traditional thatched cottage with homemade scones and lashings of clotted cream.
