Countryside breaks in South Devon

South Devon has a very special offering which is unlike any other in the UK. With the secluded sandy beaches of Hope Cove, the rolling hills of Dartmoor and the estuaries of Salcombe and the River Dart, this is the perfect location for a country escape.

Many people head to the South Devon countryside for all of the outdoor activities on offer. Grab your wetsuit and head to the waters of Bantham or Thurlestone for kayaking, paddle boarding and surfing fun. For more information on South Devon's beaches, check out our Beach Bible in our Travel Blog.

Others may be seeking detox from the stresses of everyday life. If this is the case, a rural cottage near the market town of Kingsbridge or along the coastline may be just what you are looking for. With stunning views on your doorstep, you can enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside. 

If you visit in the summer months you are likely to be greeted with pleasant temperatures, however, a country escape in the autumnal and winter months can be just as fun. Wrap up warm and enjoy winter walks, pub lunches and exploring the fantastic landscapes off-season.
