Kids Days Out In Devon

kids days out devon

Devon is a great destination for days out or family holidays.
It is a county of contrasts with beautiful beaches and calm bays in the south and rugged coastline and sweeping beaches excellent for surfing in the north. It also includes the wonderful National Park of Dartmoor, with some of the loveliest scenery in the British Isles. There are many things to do from just spending time on the beach, to activities at the many attractions we list on these pages. If you like walking there are many coastal walks and guided walks on Dartmoor. There are many lovely coastal towns such as Dartmouth, where you can take boat rides, Salcombe with lovely beaches, or why not spend some time in the City of Exeter, with its great shopping and entertainments.
If you want to rent a seaside cottage we have a great choice at our Guide - Seaside Cottages Co, or if you want to take a break click on the Bookings.com banner at the side.
