The countryside and beaches here are quite outstanding. From Salcombe to Kingsbridge, from Slapton to Hope Cove and from Bigbury on Sea to Kingston its just perfect. The scenery and walks are so interesting although I expect , in full season it can become very busy especially the small country roads

Take the A379 from Exeter to Dawlish(with its famous shoreside railway line) and follow this road for the most spectacular coastal scenary, journeying through pretty Devon villages and rolling farmland. You won't be disappointed, especially on a beautiful sunny day! Go across the bridge and look back from the steep rise over Teignmouth, then through lively Torquay and Paignton and... More

If you are ever in the South Hams Area of Devon, Kingston is a lovely village with a very old pub the Ales are Moorish and the atmosphere was superb. If you are a walker the coast is very nice.

So many places to see, in the whole of the South Hams, at times it seems to have its own mini-climate against the rest of Devon, give yourself plenty of time to view. Dartmouth, Blackpool Sands, Slapton Sands, Torcross, Hallsands ,Start point, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Hope Cove, Bantham and Burgh Island beaches, then we still have areas like Newton Ferrers, Noss...

Excellent beaches. the delightful towns of Dartmouth, Torquay and Totnes to mention only a few, all have their own personality to offer the visitor. Dartmouth on the mouth of the river Dart with a wide range of pubs and restaurants, Torquay with its huge harbour and many shops to explore. Totnes with its diverse populace and eclectic shops and interesting... More

We absolutely love the South Hams. Why? We love the mixture of beautiful clear blue sea with wonderful lush green countryside. The lanes are small and narrow and you just can't be rushed even though the constant stopping to let traffic pass can be frustrating if you let it. Salcombe whilst a cracking place to visit has got to be... More

We are regular visitors, and enjoy everything about this rich and beautiful part of the world. The towns each have their own characters, and you fall over history and wildlife everywhere. Walk the coastal path or take a circular walk ending at one of the amazing pubs. Kinder weather than you might imagine, too.
