Family days out

Tiny tots, toddlers, tweens and teens – whatever aged children you have, South Devon provides a hubbub of activities that will keep them entertained for hours on end! That’s why we’ve put together a collection of articles to help inspire your family days out in South Devon.

Animal lovers will find rare breed farms, bird sanctuaries, zoos and even an aquarium to keep them busy, whilst water babies will love the abundance of surfing lessons, kayaking or sailing opportunities available in the coastal towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth.

Looking for all-weather family attractions for the whole family to enjoy? Woodlands Family Theme Park and Pennywell Farm are both popular. Or, book a Round Robin trip with Dartmouth Steam Railway and Riverboat Company and tour around with a steam train ride, open top bus trip and river cruise all in one day.

Why not encompass one of South Devon’s fantastic events into your holiday too… making for a fantastic getaway with the kids. Take a look at our events page for more information.
