Devon Holiday Cottages

There are two national parks in Devon and these should be on everyone's list on things to see when they visit. The Dartmoor National Park offers something for everyone. Aside from the magnificent views Dartmoor provides, visitors can also explore the local wildlife; tourists can watch the Dartmoor ponies run wild or see if they recognise any of the scenes from movies such as The War Horse which was filmed in the area. Moreover, Dartmoor has many archaeological sites to visit, so it is a magnificent place for anyone who enjoys exploring or digging up history.

The breath-taking sites of Exmoor National Park have to be seen to be believed. This spectacular park, which spans more than 250 square miles, provides a unique combination of farmlands, rugged moorlands, valleys and so much more. While in Exmoor, why not take time to see the Landacre medieval bridge or the beautiful Exmoor ponies? There are plenty of attractions to visit for the whole family including many that are dog-friendly.

Exeter is at the very centre of Devon and its magnificent Cathedral attracts tourists from afar, as do the beautiful rolling Blackdown Hills and the famous Jurassic coast, which has been named a World Heritage Site. The diverse coastline of Devon makes an ideal place for tourists that like their outdoor activities including water sports. There are miles of coastal paths to explore making Devon a perfect holiday destination for walkers and dog owners. From the pebble beaches of East Devon with pretty fishing villages such as Beer; to the golden sands of Ilfracombe and Croyde on the North coast and the much loved English Riviera and South Hams areas on the South coast, Devon has plenty to offer beach lovers. The vast, clear blue seas are great for surfing or sailing and Devon is also home to many shipwrecks, so if you enjoy diving, you'll find plenty of sites to explore under the Devon seas.
