    An area of outstanding natural beauty, the often rugged coastline of South Devon encompasses some of the most stunning views of the southern seashore in England, stretching majestically along the South West Coastal Path between Dorset and Cornwall.

    Things to do in South Devon
    With Dartmoor at its heart, South Devon is an established centre for hill walking and rambling, whilst its beautiful coastline is justly famous to holidaymakers and naturalists alike. Whether tackling one of its many footpaths or cycle trails, or relaxing on one of the many sandy beaches, visitors to South Devon have an amazing range of countryside and coastal pursuits at their fingertips.

    Top Destinations
    Dartmoor – Covering almost 1,000 sq kilometres of picturesque moorland, this designated National Park has also been gainfully employed as a military firing range for over 200 years.

    Ivybridge – An important crossing point over the River Erme, the town lies eight miles east of Plymouth and to the south of the Dartmoor National Park.

    Salcombe – Close to the mouth of the Kingsbridge estuary, Salcombe is a pretty town with a sheltered harbour and an impressive waterfront, which makes it ideal for boating and sailing, as well as a popular spot for holidaymakers, who flock onto its sandy beaches. The coastline is also the location for a number of historic shipwrecks – including some allegedly dating back to the Bronze Age. Near the mouth of the estuary, the Bar, a sand spit which is exposed at low tide, makes the tidal entrance almost impassable when a strong southerly wind is blowing.

    Exeter – The cathedral city of Devon was once the most south-westerly reaches of the Roman Empire in Britain. Perched on the River Exe, the city still enjoys excellent transport links, and although tourism is important to the local economy, unlike some other local conurbations, Exeter is not dependent upon its seasonal trade. The beautiful 12th century cathedral is famous for its impressive vaulted ceiling, as well as its celebrated astronomical clock.

    Exmouth – Dominated by its proximity to both the sea and the River Exe, the town has a fine selection of notable architecture, from the small fishing cottages of the original villages, to the smart Georgian town houses of later years. Exmouth is a popular tourist centre, with a particular focus on water sports such as sailing and windsurfing. Close by, on the opposite side of the estuary, Dawlish Warren is one of the few natural sand spits in the world, and is home to a myriad of rare wildlife and plant life.

    Dawlish – Sited at the outlet of the small river known as Dawlish Water, the sandy beach at Dawlish is famously fringed by the Riveria Line Railway running along the South Devon Railway sea wall. The unusual positioning of the railway line makes it one of the most photographed sections of track in the country, although it is also constantly in danger of sea erosion and general flooding. Early (pre-Roman) inhabitants of the area were largely fishermen and salt makers. The town was also once famous as the home of Devon Violets.

    Bovey Tracey – As with many local towns, this ‘Gateway to the Moors’ takes its name from a nearby river. The town also played its part in the English Civil War, with a decisive battle on Bovey Heath, in which the Roundheads were victorious.

    Dartmouth – Once of strategic importance as a deep water port, the narrow mouth of the Dart estuary is protected by two impressive fortified castles; Dartmouth Castle and Kingswear Castle were originally built to provide co-ordinated cover with the use of limited-range cannons. As military gun technology improved, Kingswear declined in importance, and Dartmouth Castle was enhanced with improved gun emplacements.

    Brixham – A small fishing town, set on a hill, the harbour at Brixham is still used by fishing boats. A replica of Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind is also permanently moored here, creating a well-established tourist attraction.  Prince William of Orange landed at Brixham in 1688, and many locals still have Dutch surnames, allegedly being direct descendants of his army.
