From the moment you check in at your chose hotel in Devon, you can be sure of a holiday that you can tailor to your tastes and travel party. If you like relaxation, delicious cuisine and stunning beaches then you’ll be in your element, though Devon is equally suited to those with a stronger sense of adventure or with energetic children in tow.
The beaches in Devon are absolutely incredible, with long stretches of golden sand occasionally lined with palm trees. Whether you’re building sandcastles, soaking up the sun or walking along the Jurassic Coast with the sand between your toes, you’re sure to love the views and the gentle sound of the waves. Meanwhile, more serious walkers can enjoy the many trails across the coast and the countryside, including the famous Tarka Trail which follows the route taken by Tarka the Otter in the book of the same name by author Henry Williamson. There are walking routes for all abilities, whether you’re looking for an easy way to see a little of the Devon countryside or are seeking a challenge as a more experienced hiker in the Dartmoor National Park.
Wherever you go, expect to find towns and villages where you’ll receive a warm welcome. There are wonderful pubs with open fires, perfect for whiling away the hours in the winter months, and beautiful riverside cafés where you can stop and rest with a traditional Devon cream tea. Wines and ciders that are produced throughout the region can be purchased in local bars and straight from their producers in the farms and vineyards, whilst other specialities such as traditional Devon fudge make excellent souvenirs to buy from local gift shops.
Devon attractions range from fun-packed family favourites such as Crealy Adventure Park to impressive historic buildings and landmarks such as Buckfast Abbey, Watermouth Castle and Saltram. Add in the many farm parks, golf courses and theatres and it’s easy to see exactly why one visit to Devon is never enough.
Each hotel in Devon has its own unique character, meaning that no two holiday or short break destinations are ever the same, even before you’ve set foot outside. At all of our Devon hotels you can expect excellent service, a satisfying sleep and easy access to some of the best visitor attractions in the region. Will you visit with family or with friends, in winter or in summer? The choice is yours!
