Devon & Cornwall

Dazzling white cliffs, postcard-perfect villages and the wildest collection of moorland – England’s most southern coastline is also its most beloved.

Top Tips for your Devon & Cornwall Holiday

Visit Land's End, the most westerly point of Cornwall and the whole of England. This fittingly dramatic headland has a rugged and wild beauty.

Lynton and Lynmouth are linked by the highest and steepest fully water-powered cliff railway in the world. The views along the coast are spectacular

Spend a day at the world-renowned Eden Project. The area’s top eco visitor attraction is fascinating, rewarding and well worth a visit.

Exmoor National Park is home to the oldest breed of native pony; they were mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and roam wild and free on the moors

Learn the right way to prepare a cream tea scone: jam first then cream in Cornwall, cream with jam on top in Devon. The locals take it very seriously.

Things To See & Do

Devon & Cornwall

From rocky headlands and high sea cliffs to secluded coves, golden sandy beaches and turquoise bays there’s a lot of coast line to explore in Devon and Cornwall. And, in between, you’ll find two National Parks, a wealth of picture-postcard pretty villages, verdant countryside and a slightly slower pace of life where there’s plenty of time to stop and admire the landscape. The generally mild and sunny climate is an added bonus.

It’s no surprise that artists and writers have been attracted to this area for hundreds of years; Coleridge and Wordsworth drew inspiration from the rolling Exmoor hills, Du Maurier was entranced by the secret rivers and creeks of Cornwall and painters extol the special light in these most westerly of English counties. Look out for local art galleries celebrating the rich natural beauty of the region.

When you’ve done exploring, settle down to a delicious spread. Enjoy the freshest of seafood, perhaps some local oysters, or try rich Devon beef, and creamy Cornish ice-cream. You’ll not want to leave without trying the area’s speciality: the famous west country cream tea.


Travelling To & Around

Devon is easily reached from the Bristol area, via a scenic route along the Somerset coast and by the Quantock Hills, or from London via Surrey, Wiltshire and central Somerset. Dropping further south in to Cornwall is also fairly simple, with plenty of exploring opportunities to discover along the way.

The North Devon coast features some of the UK’s finest beaches, a magnet for surfers from near and far, while Exmoor National Park is one of the country’s best, with world-class walking amid a staggering variety of landscape. By the same token, Cornwall is a rightly enduring favourite for travellers, eager to discover precipitous coastal villages, wonderful seafood and the very extremities of southern Britain.
