Devon overflows with stunning scenery. If you like wild moors and dramatic tors, Dartmoor National Park is a must. A haven for walkers, history enthusiasts and nature lovers, Dartmoor offers Bronze Age sites, the famous Dartmoor ponies and atmospheric sites such as Wistman’s Wood.
Meanwhile, the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty takes in part of the Jurassic Coast and teems with coastal resorts such as Sidmouth and Seaton. There are many beaches here, as there are in North Devon where some of the most popular are around Ilfracombe which has also made a name for itself on the culinary and cultural scene.
If it’s beautiful sea views with a locally made ice-cream in-hand as you watch sailing boats drift out to sea that you dream of, head to Salcombe. As part of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the town is a lovely place to relax, shop in boutiques and dine on fresh seafood.Read more

There are plenty of opportunities to indulge and a Devonshire Cream tea is a must do treat. Just remember to spread the clotted cream on your scone before adding the jam on top if you want to fit in with the locals.
When it comes to beautiful natural attractions, there are many. One highlight is The Lydford Gorge River trail that is managed by the National Trust.
