Devon

Famed for its rolling hills, beautiful beaches and quaint villages, it's no wonder Devon is one of the UK's busiest tourist destinations, and a wonderful place to bring up a family.
There are miles of beautiful, safe beaches for children, where you can try out crabbing, get busy rock pooling, or have a go at water sports.
Beyond the magnificent coastline, visit one of Devon's many family attractions, including theme parks, stunning stately homes, local history sites and the mystical moors. Devon boasts five areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and two breath-taking National Parks, Exmoor and Dartmoor, where you can spot ponies roaming the dramatic landscapes.
We have charming villages and towns to visit, ranging from pretty fishing villages to bustling market towns. For a city experience, hit Exeter with its eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and museums, or discover the vibrant cultural scene in Britain's historic ocean city, Plymouth.
