The landscape of Devon is friendly, with rolling hills, heathlands, meadows, wooded river valleys, countryside with narrow roads, old villages and holiday homes with thatched roofs. The landscape was also a source of inspiration for stories by Jane Austin and crime writer Agatha Christie, among others. From your holiday home in Devon, it is wonderful to tour through the landscape, along villages and castles, or just towards the coast. And on the way you stop at a tearoom for a real cream tea!
Devon has a beautiful and varied walking area and two large national parks: Exmoor National Park in the north, and Dartmoor in the south. In the mysterious Dartmoor National Park, you will find heaths, granite rocks, bridges and rivers. In addition to nature, the region also has numerous historical sites, such as castles, abbeys and Roman remains.
Along the coast are fishing villages, seaside resorts, bays and cliffs. The North Coast is wild, with high cliffs. Visit the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly, with its steep streets. The 'subtropical' south coast is more hospitable and is also called the English Riviera. A popular seaside resort here is Lyme Regis. The coast is also called the Jurassic Coast and is on the world heritage list of UNESCO. Another popular resort is Torquay.
The coastal town of Plymouth is well worth a visit, with its historic harbour. Finally, the mild climate of the South West of England makes it even more attractive for holidaymakers! Enough to see and do from your holiday home in Devon!
