Devon is situated in southern England and is a very beautiful county, famous for many picturesque and varied environments in both coastline and countryside.

Inland Devon includes the wild, unpredictable yet enchanting Dartmoor and part of Exmoor (shared with Somerset). These moorlands have a unique environment with spectacular granite Tors and a wealth of Bronze Age remains. There are many wooded river valleys between the moors and the sea, appealing little villages are found nestled in these throughout the county.

Its coastal resorts contain Torquay known as the English Riviera in the south of Devon, Ilfracombe and Lynton in the north where the area is relatively untouched by development and very scenic.

Exeter Cathedral is a famous landmark in the region and Exeter’s old Customs House is also worth a visit. Plymouth a bustling and busy port, boasts of a stunning Aquarium, the Plymouth Hoe and good entertainment opportunities in the Pavilions.

The National Trust areas at Saltram and Killerton are also places of interest, as is and Buckland Abbey on the fringe of Dartmoor, which was owned in different periods by Sir Francis Drake and Sir Richard Grenville.
