More on South Devon

Primarily, the area is a very beautiful place to be - from the wilds of Dartmoor to the picture perfect beaches of Salcombe and the chocolate box villages in between; it’s a romantic destination as well as being ideal for family holidays.

Elegant and timeless hotels such as Burgh Island offer a unique location to indulge in 1930s glamour, or even to get engaged, while the likes of The Cary Arms bring nostalgia, luxury and the beauty of relaxing with a good book in the evening into the holiday experience.

Foodies visiting South Devon will appreciate the wide array of locally landed fish and shellfish as well as the array of vineyards like Sharpham in Totnes, or local delicacies such as Salcombe Dairy Ice Cream or the artisan Salcombe Gin that has joined the fold in more recent years.

Outdoor activities are a given in this part of the world, whatever the weather. Surfing at Bantham, horse riding, paddleboarding, kayaking, waterskiing or bobbing along on an inflatable banana all have their place for those looking for an action packed escape by the sea.

Meanwhile for a more sedate experience, a stroll to the many beaches, a cruise along the River Dart or a visit to one of the area’s National Trust properties including Greenway - the summer home of Agatha Christie. -are well worth a visit.

South Devon, and its position on the South West Coast Path, is a joyous place to head out for a walk. As a result, it is also a particularly good destination for those holidaying with much loved four legged friends. For those who don't fancy a walk, you can take in the breathtaking vistas for South Devon's hotels with amazing views.

South Devon is beautiful at any time of year. Take a look at our hotels for South Devon Winter mini-breaks.
