Trying to choose the perfect base for your holiday? The South Hams is made up of a myriad of tiny picture-postcard hamlets, quaint seaside villages and unspoilt waterside towns. Let us inspire your next break with our detailed area guides.

The special thing about South Devon is there’s a place for everyone. For the water lovers, the incredible coastal towns of Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Totnes and Dartmouth all offer varying entertainment… seaside swells for surfing, tranquil tides for stand up paddleboarding or rippling rivers for relaxing rowing, the list is endless.

And it’s certainly not confined to waterside retreats. The countryside is just as special – with dramatic clifftop settlements, lone cottages nestled deep in green valleys, or traditional villages filled with thatched cottages and traditional village inns.

With so many amazing spots in South Devon, it’s hard not to be inspired!
