Cottages in South Devon
Devon, the very name conjures up images of narrow lanes, sunlit coves, chocolate box thatched villages and if your sweet tooth still isn’t satisfied, the Devon cream tea.
South Devon, a narrowing peninsula with Cornwall and the Tamar valley to the western side and Dartmoor sitting at the top, this is a region of great contrasts. The beaches that line this coastline are spectacular beyond belief. Pretty coves sit side by side with broad sands and classic seaside harbour towns like Salcombe stand guard over unbelievably beautiful estuaries.
This part of the county is just perfect for a traditional family bucket and spade holiday, a romantic weekend for two or an autumnal short break to recharge your batteries before winter. Swim, surf or boat or just relax and enjoy the stunning coastline and warm Devonshire hospitality.
At the top of South Devon sits Dartmoor, a brooding landscape full of stories and legend, wild ponies and a varied and fascinating terrain. Dramatic and atmospheric, Dartmoor is in total contrast to the charm of the picture postcard villages and coastline that lie to the south of it.
Dartmoor has inspired countless writers and artists, it is beautiful in its bleakness and even on a warm sunny day, it has an edge about it and a rugged menace; Dartmoor is one of the few remaining untouched and uncultivated landscapes in the United Kingdom still to be found. It enthrals visitors whether your interest lies in the wildlife, the history or just the spectacular scenery and atmosphere.
