Inspiring artists and authors for centuries, visitors continue to be drawn to breaks in Devon for its outstanding beauty and rural charm. Hike across Dartmoor National Park, through ancient woodland and over granite tors, or discover the farms and villages of Exmoor National Park. Head to either the northern or southern coasts for dramatic clifftop walks that sweep down through sandy bays where kids can spend hours exploring rock pools and discovering smugglers’ caves. On breaks to Devon you can channel your inner Agatha Christie in Georgian Torquay, see where America’s founding fathers left England from historic Plymouth then indulge with a clotted cream tea in postcard-perfect Widdecombe in the Moor.
