Boasting sandy beaches, staggering cliffs, historical towns and national parks, a holiday in Devon has something for every traveller. Often called the English Riviera, Devon is also home to a series of picture-perfect harbour towns like Torquay, Brixham and Paignton – each with their own attractions and charm. If you have a furry friend, it’s a great place to bring them along. There’s plenty of dog-friendly walking trails that venture past the coastline and into the dense countryside.
It’s not just about beaches and green landscapes either. Devon has a growing foodie scene and streets that are packed with shops, bars, arts and entertainment facilities.

Now we haven’t just included this place because of its name. Although, it’s pretty cool, right?! Beer might only be small – it’s a little village that faces Lyme Bay and is close to Seaton. But what it lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in outdoor adventures.

Ideal for all ages, you’ll find independent shops, cute cafes, lively bars and pubs and a fantastic restaurant scene for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As one of the larger Devon towns, the range of holiday cottages is great too.

Where? North Devon
One of the best ways to truly explore everything that Devon has to offer is by heading off along the Tarka Trail. There are over 180 miles of it and it leads all the way from North Devon to Exmoor.
