The problem with spouting off about a place to say how much you love it is that after people read your review they go and visit it themselves - and can spoil the place. We love the South Hams so much that when my wife retires later this year we want to up sticks from the Midlands and move there... More

This is one of the most beautiful areas of the country. There are stunning beaches to visit, lovely towns and wonderful scenery. This unspoilt area is a must to visit.

One of themost beautiful places I've visited in the UK and beyond. Incredible scenery around every corner. Interesting towns, stunning beaches and lush countryside- what else could you ask for?

A perfect environment and team near Beesands, Slapton, and a short drive from Kingsbridge. Great for children with lots of different activities. 100 dads and children descended on their charming rural setting in September with activities including Goat walking with 2 young kids, woodland activities, including bow and arrow making, camp fires, shelters, clay modelling. With sea views, rolling hills,... More

I have lived in Devon all of my life and the South Hams is the best of the best for me. It has some fabulous towns and stunning countryside and beaches. Unspoiled, beautiful and rural. One of the places that is England at its best.

I came to the area for work, but have fallen in love with it. The highlight is the coastal scenery - there are beautiful beaches, particularly if you're prepared to walk to the more remote ones. And the coastal path is unmissable, though quite strenuous in places. The stretch between East Portlemouth and Start Point is an exceptional walk. Add... More

My wife and I travelled to Tones as we often do, living close by at Newton Abbot, just for a break. Returning along the road towards Newton Abbot on the right at the "Berry Pomeroy" turning, we saw a sign which read "Mare and Foal Sanctuary".Now my wife and I have never ridden a horse, but we have always been...

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
