Devon

Two spectacular coastlines, two National Parks and the mild climate of the English Riviera, there’s so much to see and do whilst staying at one of our caravan parks or holiday parks in Devon. Here’s our guide to the Top Ten Things To Do whilst on one of our caravan holidays in Devon.

More »

1. Cycle the Tarka Trail

The trail follows the route taken by Tarka the otter in the famous book. With over 30 miles available to cyclists, it takes a looping route through north and mid Devon, from the rugged Atlantic Coast and the estuaries of the Taw and Torridge – through rural Devon countryside onto the northern slopes of Dartmoor, and the source of the River Taw. The route covers a wide variety of landscapes, including wooded river valleys, rugged moorland, coastal cliffs and sandy bays.

2. Enjoy a unique beach experience in Ilfracombe

Devon has many fine and award-winning beaches, from secluded coves to wide stretches of golden sand with crashing surf. For a unique beach experience visit the Tunnels Beach in Ilfracombe. The Tunnels are passages hewn through the cliffs to a privately owned bathing beach. The Victorians also built up walls between rocks to make two bathing pools which have been recently restored and make for an excellent family day out on the beach.

3. Treat yourself to a Devon cream tea

A cream tea with thick clotted cream and deep red jam served atop plump doughy scones is one of the delights of Devon. For a genuine Devon cream tea the cream comes first, followed by the jam. After all it spreads more easily and it looks better!

4. All aboard the steam train for Buckfastleigh

Historic steam engines haul trains between Buckfastleigh on the edge of Dartmoor and Totnes, through some of Devon’s most beautiful countryside. The South Devon Railway line hugs the river Dart along almost all of its length – and through countryside rich in wildlife, barely any of which is visible from the road.

5. Climb a Dartmoor tor

Dartmoor is the largest and wildest area of open country in southern England. Situated in the middle of Devon between the north and south coasts, Dartmoor is where tall, windswept granite tors stand out atop wild and rugged hills on two high plateaux split by the valley of the River Dart. On those plateaux the famous Dartmoor ponies still graze. It is a rich habitat for wildlife and has a wealth of archaeological remains which dot the landscape of the moor, best explored on foot.

6. Be enchanted by Rosemoor

Rosemoor is a beautiful 65-acre garden of national importance set deep in the lovely north Devon countryside in the magnificent Torridge Valley. You do not have to be a keen gardener to appreciate the beauty and diversity of Rosemoor, which was gifted to the RHS by Lady Ann Berry in 1988. Whatever the season, the garden is a unique and enchanting place that people return to time and again for ideas, inspiration or simply to enjoy a marvellous day out. An exciting and diverse range of events also takes place throughout the year for all the family.

7. Ride on a unique cliff railway

This unique Victorian inclined railway links the towns of Lynton and Lynmouth, climbing from sea level to a height of 150 metres. This ingenious water powered lift is one of the most environmentally friendly ways of travelling, creating absolutely no emissions. The cliff railway enjoys stunning views of the North Devon coastline from Lynmouth nestling at the foot of the cliffs to Lynton perched 500 feet above and is still used by locals to get between the two communities.

8. Head across the water on a sea tractor

Burgh Island is situated just off one of South Devon’s finest beaches and is home to a stunning Art Deco hotel. The islet is accessible by foot across a sand spit at low tide and onboard a hydraulic sea tractor, the only one in the world, at other times. Recently renovated it is the best way to arrive through the surf at Burgh Island.

9. Go surfing at Croyde

Croyde is a beautiful village facing the Atlantic Ocean with one of Britain’s best surfing beaches. The wide sweep of Croyde Bay is not just great for surfing. The Blue Flag beach is also good for beach games, building sandcastles and just chilling out.

10. Take a cruise up the estuary from Salcombe

Hop on an organised cruise or hire your own motorboat – it’s simple to learn the ropes and you can’t go far wrong with a chart detailing the best beaches, seal hotspots and places to moor up for food and drink.
