What Devon Has To Offer

South Devon is one of the most awe-inspiringly scenic parts of the UK. With stunning coastlines, picturesque greenery and sandy coves, it should come as no surprise that the county was declared an area of outstanding natural beauty, protecting the county, in 1960.

One of the most desirable parts of the UK to live, and one of the most visited counties in the UK, Devon is both a rich tapestry of historical heritage, culture and sports recreation. Anyone with the desire to erect property must follow the guidance of the Environmental Agency and the English Heritage, allowing everyone the opportunity to enjoy all the county has to offer.

Rich in areas of individual wildlife such as seals, dolphins and bats, salt marshes, hedge banks, woodlands, reed beds and coastal grasslands, moderated public access to specific areas is necessary. Those intrepid explorers will find the largest colony of Guillemots on the cliffs above Berry Head. Marine animals flourish in out of sight areas, and it’s easy to spot turtle migrations and basking sharks in the months of April to October.

The county truly offers something for everyone all year round. From a programme of workshops to walking and cycling trails, the ANOB caters for a wealth of different holiday attractions for those considering a seasonal holiday. Planning your day is a challenge – there’s so much to do and see, you’ll want to pack as much in as possible.

Favourite Attractions and Excursions

The South West Coastal Path that runs directly through Torquay offers the opportunity to sample fabulous scenery, local culture and takes in the complete coastline in a single walk. The grassy headlands of Hope’s Nose roll seamlessly into the fascinating history of Torre Abbey, and the residency of Torquay’s most famous resident, Agatha Christie.

Kent’s Cavern is one attraction not to be missed. Famed throughout the world for its prehistoric caves, and history aficionado would be saddened if a visit to Kent’s Cavern was forgotten. At the end of the South West Coastal Path there is no better resting spot than at Devon Cream Tea, one of the most quaint tea rooms in the county.

As you can see, Devon offers a wealth of exciting and engaging activities, combined with one of the most scenic surroundings the UK has to offer. If you’re still undecided on where to take your summer holiday this year, what’s stopping you visiting Devon?
