Devon is a county in the southwest of England, best known for its gorgeous coastlines, impressive grasslands and, of course, its delectable cream teas complete with lashings of clotted cream. A place that is best known for its fossil cliffs, medieval towns, and the English Riviera, a series of sunny beaches where the water is almost as warm at the Mediterranean, Devon is popular with both tourists and British holidaymakers alike. It's the perfect destination for those looking for some quiet respite set against a backdrop of Britain's most beautiful surroundings.
Devon's standout feature is without a doubt its varied landscape. From the gorgeous sandy beaches of Watcombe, Woolacombe and Blackpool Sands to the quaint harbour towns of Dunsford, Dartmouth and Totnes and the brooding landscapes of Dartmoor and Exmoor, there is plenty to explore. Grab your hiking boots and take long walks across the greenest terrains or enjoy a lie-down and lap up the ocean breeze with a trip to one of Devon's many beaches.
A cathedral city set in the heart of Devon, Exeter is best known for its academic and historical foundations. The newly refurbished university is one of its many standout features, but the cathedral and Powderham Castle are worth a wander too. Exeter is perfect for a small city meander, but you can also enjoy a day out at the races or take a quick train ride to take part in the 'Topsham Ten'; a pub crawl where you can trial a southwest favourite, cider.
There is no British tradition held in higher esteem than the celebrated cream tea, an afternoon treat made up of a pot of freshly brewed tea alongside baked scones with a filling of cream and jam. A rivalry which will no doubt stand the test of time, the counties of Devon and Cornwall have long fought over the contents of a well-loved scone; in Cornwall, you spread the jam first and then the cream, but in Devon is it cream and then the jam. Live like a local and stick to the rules.
Although Devon's harsher landscapes might attract the more outdoorsy traveller, there really is nothing quite like sipping on a cool glass of rose while relaxing at Salcombe Harbour. Salcombe is a popular harbour town best known for its impressive views, sailing prowess and yacht culture and is certain to impress.
