As the third largest county in the UK, it is not surprising that Devon possesses such a diverse variety of scenery, from wild expanses and dramatic granite tors in Dartmoor to picture-perfect harbour towns and beaches in the South and the majestic forests and rolling hills of Exmoor.

The county is a haven for lovers of the great outdoors, with plenty of wildlife, fantastic views and historical sights to be found on walks in Devon. Wander around the 16-mile Dart Valley Trail, taking in the town of Totnes and Dartmouth and then following the Kingswear Peninsula to charming fishing villages like Dittisham. There are a great many coastal walks in Devon, one of the most popular would be the hike from Sidmouth to the village of Beer along the Jurassic Coast. The walk takes in the incredible views as well as the areas of geological interest; this stretch of coastline is not only a UNESCO World Heritage site but also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

No need to leave your pets at home, there are plenty of places to go on dog walks in Devon. Follow the coastline and climb the steep cliffs near Beesands, eventually ending on the dog-friendly beach, or join the Two Moors Way at Fingle Bridge and take a walk around the Teign River through enchanting woodland.
