South Devon Cottages

With a coastline fringed with beaches around every peninsula, picturesque thatched villages nestling amongst lush green countryside and award winning restaurants serving up mouthwatering local dishes, it’s not hard to understand why South Devon remains a favourite for many year after year.

At the heart of South Devon is The South Hams, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, often referred to as “The Jewel in Devon’s Crown”. Kingsbridge, the central market town, is a perfect base to explore this part of southernmost Devon. Lying at the head of the Kingsbridge-Salcombe Estuary you can explore on foot, or to really experience the estuary take to the water on a canoe, kayak or paddleboard, the calm blue waters making this region popular for all types of watersport.

Salcombe is the sailing hub of the area and popular with families for its soft sandy beaches. Catch a ferry and cruise up the coastline or even charter your own sailing boat and drop anchor at a beach of your choice. If you hire a fishing rod you can even try and catch your supper.

South Devon’s beaches are some of the best in the land with many boasting blue-flag status for cleanliness and purity of water. The gently shelving sands and rock pools with tiny sea creatures make the region a seaside heaven for families with children. Famous for its art deco hotel that inspired two Agatha Christie novels, Burgh Island looks back across the causeway to Bigbury on Sea, where it’s possible to walk across at low tide. For many, the thrill is in riding the vintage sea tractor across to the island, standing tall high over the sands and lapping shallow waters.

The rich fertile South Devon countryside and freshly caught seafood make South Devon a must visit destination for foodies. The region boasts several Michelin star restaurants, The Elephant in Torquay insisting on local ingredients by sourcing their produce directly from their dedicated farm in Brixham. Of course you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy the fruits of the sea – let your feet dangle over the embankment at Dartmouth and enjoy a fish supper whilst the setting sun casts shadows over the river and lights up the colourful cottages of Kingswear on the opposite side of the River Dart.

What ever your age, a trip on Devon Railways is a must do day out in South Devon. Little ones will be beside themselves as they can hop aboard the Thomas the Tank Engine steam train that puffs its way along the stunning River Dart valley between Buckfastleigh and Totnes, where you can also visit the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm and Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies – three great visits in one! For water babies of all ages Splashdown at Paignton is Britain’s largest outdoor waterpark and great fun for all the family come rain or sun, and the leafy surroundings of Woodlands Leisure Park with its indoor fun factory and soft play area will help amuse all, when the British summer is being a little unpredictable.

South Devon is a year round destination and out of season is often the perfect time to visit when roads are quieter and beaches are deserted. Building sand castles and catching sea critters in rockpools is still great fun, even with your wellies!
