Our Planning your stay is to help you make the most of your holiday or short break in the beautiful South Hams.
Whether you are reading it prior to booking your holiday you are browsing through it whilst relaxing on holiday, we hope that you will find the guide informative.
An all year round destination, the South Hams offers a different holiday experience depending on the time of year you choose. Busier with families during school holidays, those looking for 'away-from-it-all' breaks often find the Spring or Autumn the ideal time to visit, whilst recharging the batteries with a Winter short break is always popular.
Whatever time you choose, there is always plenty happening - if you want it to. We have selected some highlights from the 2013 calendar and included details for the local Tourist Information Centres for the very latest 'What's On' information - do please check all dates with them before making a special trip.
An unspoilt, largely rural area, the South Hams also offers many places to escape from the pressures of a busy, modern life; from hidden coves, stunning beaches, miles of coastal paths and wildlife havens, to expanses of river and sea, perfect for those seeking the quieter pursuits of painting, angling, walking and bird watching.
With a holiday being one of the most anticipated events of the year, planning ahead and pre-booking activities, popular restaurants and special trips can avoid disappointment and help to make your time in the South Hams even more special. We hope that you find this guide useful and that the local businesses included within it are able to add to your holiday experience when 'Planning your Stay' in the South Hams during the coming year.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday, enjoy your stay!
