Why go on holiday to Devon?

Well, Devon is a longstanding favourite holiday destination for Brits! So much so that the county attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors all year round, and it’s easy to see why. 

Devon is the only county in England to have two separate coastlines. In the north, you can experience the white-knuckle thrills of coasteering on the wilder, rugged shores or on the south coast you can relax and build sandcastles with the family at touristy seaside resort towns like Torquay.

Alternatively, you can soak up the maritime history in the city of Plymouth or browse the many independent shops and boutiques in the ancient city of Exeter.

And in 2019, Devon topped the list for having the best quality of life of anywhere in England and Wales!

Things to see on holiday in Devon

Devon boasts two separate coastlines, five areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO Geopark, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and two National Parks: Dartmoor and Exmoor.

Devon is a diverse county, with many different areas to explore. You can break Devon up into three parts: the north, middle and south. In north Devon, you’ll find a distinct contrast of long sandy beaches alongside rugged cliffs and rolling farmland edges into moorland.

Mid Devon is where we’d recommend for explorers. Tucked between the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks are rolling hills, woodlands, rivers and valleys full of wildlife, waiting to be explored.

South Devon offers countryside, coastline and the seaside resort of Torquay. The area is packed with water sports, walking routes and is full of bars and restaurants.

Things to do on holiday in Devon

If you’re after adrenaline-filled activities in Devon, there are some perfect locations for climbing, surfing, white water rafting and horse riding to name a few activities.

If you’d prefer to explore the county’s beauty, look at the sites and learn the history, there is a fascinating range of gardens, beaches and heritage attractions to visit, including the last castle built in England. Beautiful natural attractions include England’s highest waterfall and the underground home of the oldest known human settlement in Britain. Be sure to take your camera!
