Holidays in Devon have it all – you can visit medieval towns, explore national parks, sandy beaches and picturesque coastal scenery and hit the high street in modern shopping centres. How you choose to spend your time is up to you!
If you’re an avid surfer, you’ll already be aware that Devon is home to some great beaches; Croyde Beach in particular is one of the best surfing beaches in the whole of the UK, and you also have Bantham, Woolacombe and Putsborough to choose from.
Animal lovers in the family will love a day out at Exmoor Zoo – home to over 175 species, including the Exmoor Beast! If you want to see some wildlife in its natural habitat, take a trip to Exmoor and Dartmoor where you can see the wild ponies that live and run free there.
If you’re after some excitement from your holiday, there are plenty of adrenaline-filled activities just waiting for you to join in – from white water rafting and cycling, to horse riding and climbing. And with miles and miles of open land, there’s no limit to how much exploring you can do.
If your holiday isn’t complete without a trip to the local shopping district, then Plymouth and Exeter are the cities for you. Not only can you shop to your heart’s content, they also have plenty of famous landmarks that you can visit, like Exeter’s stunning cathedral and Plymouth’s waterfront.
