South Devon

To take a Summer holiday in South Devon is to surround yourself with 130 square miles of Outstanding Natural Beauty, from the secret sandy coves you’ll find hidden between craggy headlands along our coast, to picturesque panoramas of patchwork fields and winding, wooded river valleys.

From the Blue Flag beaches of Bigbury-on-Sea and Blackpool Sands to the picturesque streets of Salcombe and Dartmouth, South Devon offers more than enough to delight the most discerning of holidaymakers. Attractions for families abound in the area, as do the ever-popular annual events and festivals including the Salcombe and Dartmouth Regattas every August.

Explore over 45 miles of the South West Coast Path that passes through South Devon, from the fishing town of Brixham all the way to the outskirts of Plymouth. The sheer variety of scenery en route never fails to delight: long sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, unspoilt farmland, freshwater leys, forts, ruins and the iconic lighthouse at Start Point are all waiting to be discovered.

Woodlands family theme park, just outside Dartmouth, is the largest such attraction in the county and there are wonderful animal attractions including Pennywell Farm and the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm to enjoy, ideal for the little ones. There are indoor soft play centres dotted around South Devon and plenty more all-weather family activities too.
