Places to Visit

The English Riviera and South Devon is the perfect base for exploring South Devon. Agatha Christie Country and the English Riviera Global Geopark are right on your doorstep, and just a car journey away, the snowy tors of Dartmoor make for an excellent day out. The National Park is the largest wild area of open countryside in the south of England, with dozens of walking trails and wonderful wildlife.

Devon towns and villages

A short drive from the English Riviera is Exeter, a modern, cosmopolitan city with a rich history, whose cathedral is one of the most frequently visited tourist attractions in South Devon. Further south you’ll find the maritime city of Plymouth, with the nearby towns of Totnes and Dartmouth providing great days out too.

Surrounding the English Riviera are numerous pretty little villages and rolling Devon hills, picture perfect under a dusting of winter snow or in early spring bloom. With less holidaymakers at this time of year, you’ll love the chance to get away from it all on your ideal Devon break.
