Holidays in Devon
Devon is one of the most rural and picturesque parts of the UK and is home to Dartmoor, the largest open space in southern England. With stunning countryside and a range of holiday homes Devon has become one of the top destinations for a break in England. Much of the county is made up of National Park land and forms part of England's only natural World Heritage Site, on the East Devon and Dorset coast. The area is known as the Jurassic Coast due to its geological significance as well as its geographical location and history.
Devon is the only county in England to have a northern and southern facing coastline and its miles of beaches and coastal resorts have helped it become a desirable destination for holidays. With Torbay being dubbed as the ‘English Riviera’ and numerous accommodation choices including holiday cottages Devon offers a hassle-free holiday. Its location provides easy access from the south of England and it is culturally rich once you get there – Exeter Cathedral, historic Plymouth and miles and miles of geological and agricultural sites are there for the taking.
The county is a haven for beach lovers and water-sport enthusiasts. It has a long-standing reputation as one of the number one places for a holiday in the UK and many people have fond memories of it as a child. Today it offers everything one would want from a modern holiday. Seaside towns attract the young sun seekers who enjoy its vibrant bustling atmosphere. Meanwhile an older generation never fails to fall for its charms. Of course, visiting is made that little bit easier by the accommodation options available. Whether you prefer a holiday home and cottage or facilities that offer self catering Devon is a top spot for a very British break.
