Let Us Take You To Devon, England’s Ceremonial County

Come to Devon for its picturesque landscapes, but stay for its carefully curated cliffs, stretches of wildflower woodlands and charming beaches. Devon is a world away from cities and concrete jungles; instead, a cornucopia of undisturbed natural nooks for you to discover.

 

Torquay

Very rarely do people travel to Devon without at least visiting Torquay, and why wouldn’t they? Torquay is quintessentially ‘Devon’, a popular and thriving seaside town offering liveliness alongside stretches of beachside. Torquay, coupled up with Paignton and Brixham is known as the English Riviera. Award winning for how it caters to a multitude of tourist needs whilst having the backdrop of family friendly beaches and a pier to stroll along whilst eating locally produced fudges and ice-creams.

Beer & Lyme Bay

Surrounded by imposing but beautiful white chalk cliffs lies Beer and Lyme Bay. A little seaside village where Devon’s historical charm leaks through and merges with modernity. Lyme bay is part of Devon’s Jurassic Coast and has been deemed a world heritage site due to its exposed rocks and cliffs, unearthing many Jurassic finds. However, it isn’t only an explorer’s paradise; the village itself boasts plenty of restaurants serving locally caught, fresh seafood.

The Dartmoor Wilderness

If you are looking for alternatives to the usual sun, sea and sand for your motorhome trip, how about surrounding yourself in wilderness? Dartmoor is more than just a rocky heather covered landscape as it holds clusters of historical village remains from the iron age. A vast area where whatever the time of year, it never feels busy. It is the perfect place to experience a tranquil space cultivated for unplugged reflection whilst you sit back and watch the Dartmoor ponies dawdle comfortably along.

Clovelly

Clovelly has the sea, it has the cosiness of an old as time Devon village, but it is also placed on a hill older than the cobbled roads that sit on it. Clovelly is perfect for people that want to submerge themselves in relaxed village life. The path to the harbour is lined with multicoloured cottages and adorable eateries, catering to that age old tradition of Devonshire tea and scones. If you happen to wander down to the harbourside, there are also three quayside pubs for something more substantial than scones, and a little stronger than tea.

Bantham Beaches

Bantham has been deemed the home of unspoilt beaches. Whispering tides, shallow warm water and an ability to lull you into a relaxed carefree state; this is far from your surfers dream beach. Batham Beaches are also really dog friendly, so don’t forget to take your four legged friends.

Salcombe Bay

Salcombe Bay is a tick list of perfection if scenery and lifestyle are what you are looking for. You can tick off rolling hills, cliff top views, gastro pubs and alfresco restaurants. Salcombe is most definitely the place for rest and relaxation, without any of the taxing adventuring. Standing high on the hills and looking down to the water you could often mistake yourself for being somewhere in the Mediterranean. Clean yellow white sand nestled up against strikingly blue water makes the bay an inviting prospect.

Appledore

A small jump into North Devon, turning right at Bideford and just down into Northam you’ll find this coastal gem. Appledore used to be a bustling export bay where impressive ships were built for merchants, and instead is now is enjoying it’s retirement as an aesthetically pleasing, but fit for purpose nautical village. Small craft stores line the cobbled streets with whitewashed houses and local restaurants. It doesn’t have to be gentle strolls and taking in the views. If you would like something a little more involved, the yacht club is still a popular ‘go to’ for visitors who want to jump aboard a boat and go for an afternoon sail with refreshments.
